According to the report, Kim Hyun Joong's alleged girlfriend, being referred to as 'A', pressed charges against Kim Hyun Joong at the Songpa police station.

In July, troubles with women came up again then, and it's said she fractured a rib due to Kim Hyun Joong's assault, requiring 6 weeks for recovery.
'A's friend added, "Women troubles arose, and it turned into assault... The past two months were a repetition of beatings, apologies, and forgiveness. However, the situation got worse, and that's why 'A' decided to report it."
His agency Key East Entertainment rep responded to TV Report, "We found out just now after reading the article. We will have to confirm it."

Grieving father of Sewol Ferry victim hospitalized after 40 days of fasting
Grieving father Kim Young Oh of Sewol Ferry victim Kim Yoo Min was admitted to Dongbu Hospital earlier this morning. He had been fasting for a total of 40 days at the Gwanghwamun Gate in order to call for the government's attention and urge them to pass a special law to investigate into the Sewol Ferry incident. As we reported earlier, Mr. Kim had even requested to meet President Park Geun Hye, but was denied. On August 22, 2:30 AM KST, Mr. Kim's body suddenly caved under his determination to fast.
Mr. Kim reported in a soft voice in the video above: "I was so out of breath, I could've died. My heart was [beating] so quickly. Even when I tried to lift my hands, I had no strength. I also had a throbbing pain in my head. I haven't been able to sleep, and now it's dawn."
Dongbu Hospital revealed that when Mr. Kim was admitted, he had unusually low blood pressure at 80/50 mm Hg (normally should be around 120/80 mm Hg) and a fast heart rate of 99 beats per minute. The director at the hospital believes that this is largely due to dehydration.
In the meantime, Mr. Kim's second daughter, Kim Yoo Na, shared with the press her Kakao messages with her father on the 21st, the day before Mr. Kim went to the hospital.
The messages read:
Kim Yoo Na (KYA): Are you going to make me worried?
Kim Young Oh (KYO): I'm still doing great. Our pretty daughter is eating well, right?
KYA: I want to eat a meal with Daddy soon.
KYO: Okay. Just wait a little more and we will be able to eat together soon. I love you, my beautiful princess.
KYA: I love you, too. Dad, you're laying down right now because you're tired, right? TT
KYO: Nope, I'm walking around [just fine] keke.
Despite Mr. Kim's condition and his daughter's concerns, Mr. Kim is determined to continue his demonstration as he stated: "Thank you to those who are putting in effort and fighting for the enactment of the special law [regarding the Sewol Ferry incident]. Until our country becomes safer, I will not stop fighting until the end, even after being hospitalized. After two or three days of recovery, I will go back to the Gwanghwamun Gate."
Wu Chun: My daughter can only be a celeb if I’m her manager
Four-year-old Wu Xinyi (nicknamed Nei Nei) may have yet to officially step into the glitzy world of showbiz but she already has a manager lined up in the form of her doting father, Wu Chun. The 34-year-old was in Macau to attend the fourth anniversary of water-based show “The House of Dancing Water” on August 14, which was an early treat ahead of Nei Nei’s fourth birthday.
The camera-loving tot waved and blew kisses on the red carpet and declared her birthday wish to be none other than, “Daddy!” The crowd burst into laughter, however, when Nei Nei chose lollipops over her dad immediately after that. Wu Chun then mused that he will not brood over it because his baby girl chose him first.
The Bruneian entertainer let on that he had initially hoped for his entire family of four to attend the celebrations together but his wife objected to it on the basis that their son is still too young to travel.
Sharing that it was the first time he watched the show, he praised it as a world-class show that showcases the performers’ strong wills. He added, “I hope that my daughter can embrace such determination while standing strong on her stage of life, even when she encounters setbacks. Family is the eternal safe haven.”
Questions on Nei Nei’s future in showbiz have also been prompted, especially after her appearance on Chinese reality show Daddy is Back. He shared, “Actually, she gets very nervous. Normally she talks nonstop but she was probably taken aback by the camera flashes just now. If she can get used to it, she will probably have an easier time as a celebrity.”
He added that he has no objections to her joining the entertainment industry, but on one condition: that he will be her manager in order to protect her.
Wu Chun, who shares the same birthday, October 10, with his daughter, revealed that his wife and son share the same birthday on October 11. To celebrate the occasion, he will be hosting a bash for 200 people, which will include Nei Nei’s friends and classmates on the guest list.
On what he is intending to gift his wife, the multi-hyphenate uttered coyly, “I don’t necessarily have to give her everything she likes.”
KARA makes return as a 4-member group with 'Day & Night'
KARA is finally back!

The title song is by Duble Sidekick, and is a fresh dance song with a strong beat. The choreography for the song is also one of the hardest KARA has to date, with flashy hand movements and complicated stage flow.
