Kim Hyun Joong opened up about the dark times he faced after the legal battle with his ex-girlfriend went public on the November 28th broadcast of MBN’s Passionate Goodbye.
The celebrity began the interview by saying, “I’m doing perfectly fine right now. If I hadn’t gone through all that, I probably wouldn’t have had the time to reflect on myself. I wouldn’t be as happy as I am right now if I were to only blame myself for what has already happened.”
He also said, “I drank, looked at the clock ticking, and repeated them until I received the enlistment notice. Some may think I ran away from the problems, but I couldn’t delay my enlistment any longer.”
He added, “When I was at the training camp, I couldn’t sleep for a week. I was in great fear back then. Luckily, I met a lot of great people there. The administrative manager, who was greatly worried about me, intentionally gave me a lot of simple, repetitive tasks to do so I don’t get caught up in my own thoughts.” The singer then called the army individual his ‘life savior’ and expressed gratitude to him.
Regarding the lawsuit he filed against his ex-girlfriend, he shared, “I thought I should defend myself. I met many specialists to prove my innocence. Although I tried to submit my phone as legal evidence, she claimed she didn’t have hers. Fortunately, her phone was found during a search, and I was able to prove that some of the claims were nothing to do with me.”
Kim Hyun Joong also revealed that he has yet to receive about $750,000 that his friend borrowed from him. He said, “Losing money wasn’t a big deal. Although it’s a lot, I got discharged from the military with the thought that I could get back on my feet if I stayed brave and bold as I used to be.”
