The Kim Hyun-joong saga continues — according to his attorney, the K-pop star gave a settlement of about $547,000 (600 million won) after an alleged miscarriage to his pregnant former girlfriend, only identified as Choi, last year.

Kim’s attorney told Star News Monday that Choi received the settlement after telling Kim she miscarried after being physically assaulted by him.

Choi, who is currently pregnant with Kim’s child, filed a lawsuit in the sum of $1.48 million against the star in April citing mental damages from their relations.

She accused Kim of physical assault — three instances in which she had to be treated for a broken rib and bruising — last year, but dropped charges in September.

According to local media, sources say there is no evidence of Choi’s miscarriage aside from text messages.

News of Choi’s miscarriage last year broke in a KBS morning news program Monday.

Last year in September, Kim wrote a message on his official website after Choi dropped charges against him.

“I’m really sorry to have inflicted mental and physical pain on a person with whom I shared love and trust for two years,” Kim wrote. “I’m embarrassed of myself for behaving in a way a man should not have behaved.”

Kim was fined about $4,550 in January by prosecutors for those charges in a summary indictment.

Kim is expected to enlist in his 21-month mandatory military service, after two delays, Tuesday.

    You idiot fan girls would believe anything smh KHJ is an abusive man and he needs to pay for his actions! Can you call yourself a woman while defending an abusive man?! You girls must be 13 or 14 years old because you sound brainwashed and immature. I just hope you never get into an abusive relationship while ppl are saying you’re lying, You bunch of koreaboo losers! Pics of bruising (purple and discolored) have surfaced of this woman yet yall call her a liar? You should be ashamed!

      You actually don’t know what happened so you sound really stupid I’m sorry. We don’t know what happened and you don’t either so stop pretending that you know what your talking about. He apologized and he gave her a huge sum of money what more can she ask for? Also how do you know that’s her? Your saying we’re losers for going on based on the facts we have and you sound immature calling us losers. Yes he should pay for his actions but how do you know he is going to be an “abusive man” forever ? Have you met him personally ? No I’m assuming you haven’t so please before you claim that were immature idiots get your facts straight. Therefore before you say we’re “Brainwashed” we’re just protecting the person we idolize and before you say crap like your idol is a horrible role model or whatever he apologized. I’m sorry if I came off rude.
