It has been reported that Kim Hyun Joong‘s ex-girlfriend has filed a massive lawsuit against netizens for slander.
According to legal representatives of Choi on May 4th from law firm “A,” she had requested the cyber police in Yongsan, Seoul to investigate over 100 netizens for slander and spreading hate comments.
Media who requested a comment from the police did not receive any, with the police saying that they currently “cannot say anything in details,” however, did not deny the fact they have indeed received such a case.
The police have already gone over the data submitted to them, and it is being reported that they will soon gather the subjects of this case for questioning.
Choi is the same ex-girlfriend who had filed a suit on assault on the singer-actor in August 2014, which was later dropped after she received an apology from Kim Hyun Joong. She is also the same ex-girlfriend who then revealed she was pregnant with his child in January 2015. These events, no doubt is the focus of all the hate comments she is receiving online.
She has also made a statement saying, “I’m going to take care of the baby, but there will be no marriage with Kim Hyun Joong.”
According to Korean law, sharing of information publicly to defame someone is subject to up to three years or 30,000,000 won fine. If the information is false or fabricated, the person is accountable from seven to 10 years in prison or 50,000,000 won fine.
