Korean actor Kim Hyun Joong has refuted reports that he will wed his girlfriend, whom he recently reunited with.
The 28-year-old was embroiled in a scandal last year in which his then-ex-girlfriend, only known as A, accused him of habitual abuse, with the court ultimately deciding to fine him for his misdemeanors.
In a curious turn of events, the two were confirmed to have reunited and reports of his girlfriend’s pregnancy subsequently emerged. Korean news outlet Dispatch stated that the two reconciled and A announced her pregnancy prior to the court ruling in January.
In a statement, his agency KeyEast Entertainment stated that Kim Hyun Joong would take responsibility if A was pregnant. However, they stated that the pregnancy has yet to be confirmed as she has avoided his requests of getting an examination at the hospital and has not been in touch with the actor.
They maintained that marriage is not on the cards and asked for media outlets to refrain from speculative articles until the two reached a mutual understanding on the matter.
Kim Hyun Joong is expected to enlist for his mandatory military duty this year.
