Kim Hyun Joong revealed his ex-girlfriend for the first time and said he was under pressure and fear in public and phone ringing!
On the latest episode of ‘Ask Us Anything Fortune Teller’, actor Kim Hyun Joong shared the pressures he faces and how his life has changed after the scandal involving his ex-girlfriend.
Faced with questions from two hosts Lee Soo Geun and Seo Jang Hoon. What responses did Kim Hyun Joong have?
Seo Jang Hoon commented that a lot of things happened for Kim Hyun Joong and asked when those incidents had occurred. This was in reference to the lawsuit Kim Hyun Joong was wrapped up in starting in 2014 involving his previous girlfriend. To Seo Jang Hoon’s question, he answered, “It was when I was 29, 30 years old. Five years ago.” Although his case was resolved last November, he has yet to return to the drama scene. His last drama was KBS W’s 2018 piece “When Time Stopped.”
Kim Hyun Joong went on to say, “Of course, I can’t say that I’m in the right. But I have the same dream every day. I get a little comfortable in front of family, but feel dispirited whenever I meet someone new. I feel like that person will judge me. I couldn’t bring myself to reach out to fellow celebrities. I felt like my existence in itself was a nuisance. I thought that there would be no good in them getting close to me.”
Last August, the actor was in the news for saving a man’s life with first aid. He told the story from his point of view by saying, “While I was taking a break from work, I got into skin scuba diving. Because of that, I learned lifesaving skills. One day, I was on my way out from a restaurant with an acquaintance when I heard a loud thud from inside the restaurant. A man was on the floor, lying stiff. I performed CPR for three minutes, but there was no response. To be honest, I was so scared. I wondered if I had gotten myself involved in something I shouldn’t have. Because the man didn’t regain consciousness for such a long time, I even thought that I would be in trouble if something were to happen to him. It was a very selfish thought.”
He went on to say, “Luckily, the man woke up. I felt a little ashamed of myself, so I hurriedly left the scene. I was reached out to later on, but I tend to panic when I get calls one after another. So, I drank and went to bed. The next day, I woke up and saw my name on the list of most searched items. I couldn’t even bring myself to click on it. My company reached out to me and explained that the man had contacted a reporter.”
After ending the show, the two Mc tried to encourage Kim Hyun Joong.
Seo Jang Hoon lastly advised, “You can’t erase your past and start anew. These things don’t get perfectly fixed. You just live with it.”
In the end, Kim Hyun Joong stated, “You said that there’s no complete cure to my hurt, but I think I was looking for a complete cure. Now, I think that I need to carry the hurt with me. This has been a small consolation.”
