South Korean actor and singer Kim Hyun Joong, 29, is still fighting for custody of the child he had with an ex-girlfriend, surnamed Choi.
On Monday, lawyers representing Hyun Joong said that at the family court earlier that day, the singer and Ms Choi had agreed that they were the child’s parents. (Last December, he underwent a paternity test, which confirmed he was Ms Choi’s child’s father.)
According to South Korean media, both parties are unwilling to back down, which means the case will be drawn out further, with litigation set to determine which parent will gain legal custody.
In addition, Hyun Joong and Ms Choi are in the midst of sorting out claims seeking damages and compensation, and the first witnesses for this case will be summoned in June.
