The representatives of Kim Hyun Joong‘s ex-girlfriend, also known to the public as Ms. Choi, has refuted the recent claims of the artist.
On September 17th, Kim Hyun Joong’s representatives held a press conference after it was revealed that Ms. Choi had already given birth to the baby who she claims is the child of the artist. There, the representatives reveal that Kim Hyun Joong would take full responsibilities should paternity tests reveal he is indeed the father.
In a letter written by Kim Hyun Joong but presented by his lawyers to the public, the artist reveals that he had only been aware of Choi’s due date (September 12th) only to find out the baby was delivered early through news portals. Responding to news that he was avoiding a paternity test, it was revealed that Kim Hyun Joong has already prepared his side for a paternity test while in the military, where he is currently serving as a border patrol soldier. He entered in May 2015.
He claims that other then the gender of the child, Ms. Choi has not provided any other information about the child.
A lawyer responsible for Kim Hyun Joong’s defense in the lawsuit said, “It is natural to verify the paternity [of the baby]. Only after verification can the father take responsibility of the baby.”
When asked by the media why they had denied the request of a DNA test, a lawyer of Ms. Choi (“A”) said, “We are regretful towards the sudden press conference [held by Kim Hyun Joong], this is a violation of my client and her newborn’s human rights.”
He continued, “We offered that all three of them, Kim Hyun Joong, our client, and the child, take the DNA tests together, however, Kim Hyun Joong’s side has declined.”
