Translation Credit: ·
The following translation is only part of the official notice…
사실 확인 결과, 두 사람은 2012년부터 알고 지낸 사이는 맞으나 교제가 이루어진 것은 최근 몇 달 간의 일임을 알려드립니다.
Please be advised after confirming facts, it came to be known that they have known each other since 2012; however, the relationship only recently developed in the past couple of months.
그러던 중 두 사람 간의 심한 말 다툼이 있었고, 그 과정 가운데 감정이 격해져 서로 몸싸움이 있었던 것은 사실이지만, 언론 보도를 통해 나온 것처럼 2개월 간 상습적인 폭행이나 수 차례에 걸친 구타가 있었다는 것은 사실이 아닙니다.
Meanwhile there was a heated argument between them, and it is true that in the process, emotions escalated and there happened to be a fight somewhat physical. However it is far from what has been reported that this is anything like a repeated incident nor did it happened multiple times.
서로간의 몸싸움 또한 한 번 있었던 일이며, 갈비뼈 골절 부분에 대해서도 이번 몸싸움 중 일어난 일이 아닌 예전 서로 장난을 치던 과정 가운데 다친 것으로, 그 다음날 지인들과 함께 어울리며 활동하는 가운데 이상이 없어 다친 것을 인지하지 못했던 상황입니다.
The physical struggle only happened once, and the rib fracture was caused by a playful activity from before. The very next day they hung out together along with their friends from which no one noticed her injury since everything appeared to be as usual.
이에 당사는 고소인의 일방적인 내용만이 언론에 보도되고, 정황이 사실과 달리 확대, 과장되고 있는 점에 대해 매우 안타깝게 생각하고 있습니다.
As of now only the complaining party’s one-sided story is being reported which is blown up and exaggerated, unlike what actually happened. He finds this very regrettable.
BREAKING: Kim Hyunjoong releases official statement regarding alleged assault
Through his agency, KeyEast, Kim Hyunjoong 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.

Kim Hyun Joong’s agency releases official statement concerning assault charge by girlfriend
Kim Hyun Joong‘s agency KeyEast Entertainment has released an official statement concerning the accusations of assault made against the actor and singer.
On August 23, KeyEast Entertainment presented Kim Hyun Joong’s side of what occurred, casting doubt on the alleged “repeated attacks” suffered by his girlfriend as well as other reported facts.
The agency stated, “After confirming [with Kim Hyun Joong], we found that it’s true the two parties have known each other since 2012, but they didn’t start dating until a few months ago… In the middle of their relationship, the two had an intense exchange of words. Though it’s true that in their heightened emotional state things got physical, it’s not true that there was continual physical assaults or that she’s been battered and beaten over the past two months like what was reported.”
In terms of the reports that the woman in question suffered fractured ribs, KeyEast said,“Their physical fight was a one time occurrence, and her fractured ribs didn’t occur due to their recent argument. Her ribs were injured when they were playing around previously, and the next day, they met with acquaintances. As there didn’t seem to be anything abnormal, her injury wasn’t recognized.”
The label made it clear that the earlier reports were one-sided, “We’re very disappointed about the one-sided reports from the accuser making headlines and that the truth is being exaggerated.” KeyEast added that Kim Hyun Joong will be willingly complying with police investigations in order to reveal the truth. The statement further mentioned that he plans to continue to fulfill the current commitments in his schedule, and afterwards, he will be focusing on resolving the case against him.
The official statement concluded that the agency took a day to figure out the situation clearly before addressing yesterday’s reports
