The Kim Hyun Joong “soon to become a baby daddy and is getting married to reconciled ex-girlfriend” breaking news from yesterday has morphed into even more stunning developments that leave me shaking my head. This isn’t even about casting blame or supporting one side, I genuinely have no clue what is really going on, or whether the truth even matters whatever it turns out to be. After news broke yesterday that Women’s Sense magazine ran a story about Kim Hyun Joong getting married and having a baby with his ex-girlfriend who accused him of multiple cases of domestic violence last year, his agency KeyEast put a hold on releasing an official response until Kim Hyun Joong could be reached for his side of the story.
Today KeyEast put out an official statement that is not confirmation of “the happy couple are getting married and having a baby”, but more along the lines of throwing the other side under the bus. If there really is a baby coming and these two get married or even just co-parent together down the line, this is probably the lowest starting point in the history of bad relationship evers. KeyEast’s statement claims that Kim Hyun Joong and ex-girlfriend A did get back together after the legal matters were dropped in the summer of 2014 but broke up again by the end of year. Then shortly after the new year A reached out to tell Kim Hyun Joong that she was pregnant and then cut off all contact with him afterwards.
Kim Hyun Joong’s side claims they have still not been able to verify whether she’s pregnant. After A informed him of the pregnancy, the two sides including with the parents spoke on the phone and met in person multiple times to decide on a hospital for prenatal care but Kim Hyun Joong claims A rejected the selection and cut off contact with him. If she indeed is then Kim Hyun Joong will take all suitable responsibility. KeyEast concludes the statement by refuting the news that the couple are currently planning to wed. Since Kim Hyun Joong’s side has not been able to reach A or her parents, the news that the parents from both sides are planning the wedding already are false.
First of all, let this whole sordid mess be a nice public announcement about using protection and checking it twice. Beyond that, some relationships are just bad and no amount of breaking up and getting back together is ever going to fix it magically. Not sure whether A is really pregnant or not but if she is then good luck trying to figure out where to go from there. If this was a drama then it’s a really really uncomfortably bad one that I would have turned off way before now, but sadly for all involved it’s real life and one that’s unfolding in the public eye due to one participant being a public figure.
