Kim Hyun Joong To Go Ahead With Korea Fan Meeting And Japan Tour Despite DUI Offence

By  | 

The shows must go on for Kim Hyun Joong.

Despite being charged with drunk driving, Korean singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong will push through his scheduled events in Japan.

According to his agency, KeyEast Entertainment, the singer will release a new single on June 6, which coincides with his 30th birthday (31st in Korean age). He is then slated to begin his Japan tour on June 7. Titled as ‘Inner Core’, the Japan tour is scheduled for 16 cities in the country.

Aside from his Japan schedules, the SS501 leader turned solo artist will also hold a fan meeting at Jamsil Olympic Hall in Seoul on April 29. The ‘2017 KIM HYUN JOONG FAN MEETING: ANEMONE‘ will mark his first meet-and-greet in four years.

Kim was caught driving under the influence of alcohol on a street in Seoul’s Songpa Ward around 1:55 a.m. last March 26. The case has since been referred to prosecutors.

    I am still waiting for news of Choi Hye MI’s March 30th criminal proceedings. Everyone went crazy because of KHJ’s present charge. As usual, his life is scrutinized and sensationalised, and the various news outlets obsess over any real or imagined transgression. Good for him to go on tour and keep his obligation to be at his fan meeting.
    So…where is the info about her criminal proceedings? Where is the obsession to pursue the truth about Choi’s transgressions? Where are the apologies for continually calling him a woman beater when it has been proven in civil court that she repeatedly lied about their relationship, and her pregnancies, and tampered with text messages? She was fined one million won. Has she paid her fine? Where are the hyenas from the news? The last reports I can find online are in January.
    Of course he should not drive his car when exhausted and drinking. His license is suspended. He is working constantly as is his habit. Let him get on with his life. He is a human being and made a mistake. At least he has not purposely plotted and lied against anyone like his former girlfriend has.
