That was unexpected! Singer Kim Hyun Joong is reportedly back with his girlfriend and going to become a father.
According to Korea’s Woman Sense magazine, the 28-year-old former SS501 frontman has reconciled with the girlfriend who had pressed charges against him for assault.
Furthermore, the 31-year-old girlfriend — known only by her surname Choi — is supposedly 10-weeks pregnant and expecting a child in September.
But, despite claims, a spokesman for Kim tells IdolWow!: “He was informed about the pregnancy in January but there is no reconciliation to confirm at this point.”
The boy band idol was embroiled in a domestic abuse scandal after Choi publicly pressed charges for multiple counts of abuse and submitted photo evidence of her injuries in August 2014 — two years into their relationship. An apology from Kim followed, both privately and publicly, and Choi subsequently dropped all charges.

Legal woes out of the way, Kim threw a surprise event for his girlfriend’s birthday, followed by a vacation with her to Jeju island for Christmas and New Year’s.
Seoul police have now closed Kim’s assault case with only a small penalty fee due to settle the case. The “Beauty Beauty” returned to Seoul from promoting in Japan on February 21 and plans to enlist in the Korean army later this year.
