[Article] Kim Hyun-Joong: Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Welcome! As an entertainment insider I know a lot of secrets. Some are meant to be kept quiet, while others NEED to be shared with the world. I’ve had the honor of working and making many industry friends in America and abroad, especially in South Korea. When the news of Kim Hyun Joong’s scandal was released, I was in shock just like everyone else. But because I’m from America, you’re actually INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. It’s disheartening to learn that by various blogs and news outlets in South Korea that by simply being “accused” of ANYTHING is grounds for public ridicule and shaming.
What’s the point of having friends in high places if you can’t call and ask around to get down to the truth right? Which brings me to today’s blog post. After numerous phone calls, emails, text messages to various sources, I now understand why Kim Hyun Joong went on to continue his already scheduled tour in China. Despite these fictional stories being spread on the internet about him. After speaking to a close confidant of Kim Hyun Joong’s this is what they had to say:
“Kim Hyun Joong is deeply HURT by these false allegations. The only thing he is guilty of is breaking Ms. X’s heart, by choosing NOT to continue a relationship with her. She was so upset that she threatened to spread false rumors about him, UNLESS he gave her a large compensation. KHJ decided to ignore her, unfortunately he had to learn the hard way that there’s nothing more dangerous than a woman scorn.
Kim Hyun Joong is AGAINST domestic violence and thinks that those guilty of it should be brought to Justice. But Ms. X isn’t seeking Justice, just compensation for her lies. KHJ knew he had to take a stand and set the record straight; after reading painful online comments from some of his fans that believed these false allegations. He opened up his heart to a non-celebrity woman but at the end of the day she was just using him for his celebrity status and money. KHJ will happily be cooperating with the authorities to stand by his innocence. Because he knows through their investigation it will prove his innocence and he can finally put this gruesome chapter behind him.
KHJ thanks all of his fans for their continued love and support. He plans on remaining single for a while once this ordeal is behind him and just focusing on his career.”
I know some of you may be asking, well what about the pictures she released? Am I saying that the bruises were fake? No. But I will leave you with food for thought from the movie called A THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE. This is what the main actress does in the film when her boyfriend left her for another woman. She became so enraged and revengeful:
I’m just the messenger. Let’s pray that ALL of the facts in this case are released before making judgments. Kim Hyun Joong shouldn’t be treated any differently than anyone else who is accused of a heinous crime, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
