On Thursday (January 18), the Seoul Prosecutor’s Office has announced that Ms. Choi, Kim Hyun Joong‘s (김현중) ex-girlfriend, will be charged for fraud, libel, and evidence manipulation.

According to South Korean media outlet OSEN via Koreaboo, the prosecutor’s office has revealed that she was never pregnant when she claimed she had a miscarriage due to Kim’s abuse back in May 2014.

They also added that the evidences she submitted, including Kakao Talk conversations and pregnancy tests, were false. It was reported that Ms. Choi committed fraud on purpose to defame the SS501 member in order to get a large monetary compensation.

The drama has been ongoing since 2014. It all began with a domestic/physical abuse controversy, which then led to an open apology/confession from the star. After that, Ms. Choi gave birth to a baby that was confirmed to be Kim’s child following a paternity test that was conducted last December.

In April 2016, the “Boys Over Flower” actor was granted joint custodial rights over his child with his former lover.
