Kim Hyun Joong reported to the Songpa Police Station on Sept. 2nd to answer charges that he assaulted his girlfriend.

The girlfriend, known only as "A" filed charges against him on Aug. 22. He was asked to report to the police station by the end of August but he was on a worldwide tour.  As the singer had a concert scheduled in China, the visit was postponed until early September.

A crowd of reporters was present when the singer and actor showed up at the Songpa Police Station. Kim Hyun Joong's lawyer and manager accompanied him and escorted him inside without stopping to answer any questions.

His testimony to the police no doubt refuted the charges against him. "A" claimed that the couple dated for two years. At first Kim Hyun Joong's agency, KeyEast Entertainment, denied the couple had only dated briefly but texts "A" provided disproved this. The texts dated back to 2012.

She also claimed that Kim Hyun Joong assaulted her on two separate occasions. The fights reportedly took place in May and July at the singer's home in Jamsil, Seoul. She claimed that both fights resulted in injuries that required visits to the hospital. KeyEast Entertainment, claims that the couple did indeed have a physical fight in May but that the second incident never took place.

The texts reported by the Dispatch discussed her injuries.

"I have no reason to be beaten," she texted and his response made it seem as if he was repentant.

"I am sorry that you were bruised and hurt," he reportedly texted. "I don't know why I did this to you."

"A" also supplied photographs and medical reports to substantiate injuries. KeyEast continues to claim there was only one incident.

A KeyEast representative told Osen that no one should make any assumptions until the investigation is complete. The police also cautioned that until all the evidence is in it is merely a one-sided allegation.

"We are currently investigating the case," said a police statement. "It is not yet concluded if the defendant is guilty."

If he is found guilty of the charges, Kim Hyun Joong could face a prison term or a fine of about $10,000.

The star of the recent drama "Inspiring Generation" visited Thailand, China, Peru, Mexico and Japan as part of his "Fantasy" tour before returning to Korea to talk to the police.
