Goo Hara (구하라) and Choi have been in the headlines in recent weeks over their public disputes.
The former member from South Korean girl group KARA recently released a series of disturbing photos showing the extent of the physical abuse. Hara claims that it was caused by her ex-boyfriend Choi.
The photos published by Dispatch showed that Hara suffered bruises all over her body. A medical diagnoses from an obstetrician and an orthopedist was also included in the report. The 27-year-old singer had reportedly suffered bleeding on her uterus and vagina from the alleged assault.
In addition, the K-pop star also had multiple injuries that include “cervical sprain”, “facial contusions and sprain”, “lower leg contusions and sprain”, and “right forearm and additional sprains”. Word on the street has it that she was attacked while Choi, who is a hair designer, was drunk.
Meanwhile, AllKpop reported that Choi was brought in to the Gangnam Police Station where he was questioned for 4 hours. When My Daily contacted him, he replied, “It’s upsetting how the relationship with the person I was the closest to has turned bad. It’s unfortunate how the untruthful parts have turned as if they’re the truth.”
Hara maintains that the assault was 2-sided. “C cursed and pushed me, and I pushed C back. The fight got physical as I said, ‘Who are you to push me and curse at me like that?’ C grabbed my hair and pulled me. He pushed me with a whiteboard and threw the air purifier. I also scratched him in that process. We fought severely to the point that my body was bruised,” she revealed.
Despite Hara’s claims, Choi denies that the assault was 2-sided. Fans are understandably confused by the contrasting stories from both parties. Who is telling the truth? Who is lying?
