Netizens call Kim Hyun Joong a ‘psychopath’ after assault scandal
Korean netizens have labelled Kim Hyun Joong a ‘psychopath’ after photo evidence of him physical assaulting his ex-girlfriend surfaced online.
On an article on Naver reporting about the actor/singer ‘secretly’ leaving for a Chinese concert, netizens asked Kim to leave Korea forever.
One top comment said: “I can’t believe he’s still looking to make money. I hope he gets egged on stage.”
While others said:
“Just cancel your tour, get investigated, pay the price of your crime, and live your life quietly at the army… That is your solution.”
“Just leave Korea for good tsk tsk”
“The pictures of her bruises shocked me… And they were only pictures of her needing two weeks of treatment;;; Imagine when she needed six weeks, how much more worse it was… Talk about a psychopath, especially with the way he talked about being worried during action scenes in case he hurt the other person”
“Kim Hyun Joong and his agency can’t be in the right state of mind going through with this tour instead of getting investigated right away”
“He’s gotta go make his settlement money somehow”
“Nowadays, you don’t need to apologize for drugs, military scandals, or assault. Just keep em coming”
“You can beat a woman or do all the drugs you want, talk about celebrities being a dream job for real”
On August 22, reports of Kim Hyun Joong physically assaulting and fracturing his ex-girlfriend’s ribs shocked the K-pop world. His agency later confirmed that the pair were in a relationship for a few months only.
Korean media Dispatch later dispelled the statement made by Key East Entertainment and released evidence of them dating from two years ago. Pictures of his ex-girlfriend’s bruises later surfaced during the week, which further raised concern of the reports being true.
