Through his agency, KeyEast, Kim Hyun Joong has finally broken his silence regarding the alleged assault of his girlfriend.
His company, KeyEast, revealed in a statement,
Firstly, we would like to apologise for releasing this statement later than expected as there were many details regarding the situation that we had to clarify. More than anything, we would first like to bow our heads in apology to the people who care about Kim Hyunjoong. We have caused you anxiety and concern.
After confirming the details with him, it is true that the two people have known each other 2012, but have only been dating for the past couple of months. During this period, they have been involved in serious arguments, and it is true that some of these arguments transpired into physical fights. However, the story about him inflicting repeated assault for the span of 2 months is false.
Even though they have been involved in physical fights, the rib fracture the victim suffered was not a result of these fights, but of an earlier incident where they were playing around. She was able to go out with her friends the next day normally, and did not even realise that she had had an injury.
KeyEast have also expressed regret that the stories released in articles have been exaggerated. They also added that they believed that the truth would be revealed soon and are assisting whole-heartedly in the ongoing investigations.
