Kim Hyun-Joong’s fans at court, witness appears
Kim Hyun-joong appeared as witness at his ex-girlfriend’s defamation trial with his fans supporting him. His fans were on site to give him support and things appeared to be profound and mysterious.
Kim Hyun-joong appeared at the Seoul Eastern District Court at 4:40PM on the 1st of May. He stood in trial as a witness.
Kim Hyun-joong appeared expressionless in a black suit.
Fans from Korean and other countries gathered around the court to see him. They quietly held up signs with messages on them and watched him enter the court.
Previously, his ex was charged with fraud and defamation. She made false statements about pregnancy, abuse and miscarriage. She also manipulated text messages between herself and the singer with a reporter. She had denied all these things ever since she was reported guilty.
In May of 2014, the ex claimed she had a miscarriage due to Kim Hyun-joong‘s abuse. She cancelled her charges on him, but a year later she filed a suit for 160 million won from him. Kim Hyun-joong counter-sued her and the court sided with him, telling her to pay Kim 100 million won. She refused and appealed against it.

As I understand the situation right now…
1) the civil suit is pending the outcome of the criminal case. Choi’s demands against HJ were dropped to 700 million won
2) Choi counter filed charges against HJ, which were sent to the military prosecutor as he was in the army at the time. The military prosecutor cleared him of the charges and suggested that Choi was guilty, but as she was a civilian they could not press charges. Subsequently she appealed to the high court and on his discharge (I think!), this was referred back to the civilian court and he was also cleared. At this point it was uncertain whether she would appeal to the Supreme Court, and it appears now to be the case that she won’t
3) The criminal case against Choi is ongoing. One presumes that if the charges against him are cleared this bodes well for the case against Choi as her charges were directly counter to his

Choi was found to have fabricated evidence by deleting portion of the phone messenger conversations. Also Choi was accused of damaging HJ’s reputation for providing manipulated phone messenger conversation to certain media outlet reporter in May 2015.
