According to the report, Kim is suspected of having committing physical abuse from May to July. His girlfriend recently filed assault charges against him at the Songpa Police Station in southeastern Seoul.
“The two had been a couple since 2012. Since last May, Kim has fought with his girlfriend over his women issues. During their fights, Kim used severe physical violence against her,” an acquaintance of Kim’s girlfriend was quoted as saying.
The violence left the woman with injuries requiring six weeks of medical treatment due to her broken ribs in July. She was also injured in May with bruises on her face, chest, arms and hips, according to the report.
Kim’s girlfriend submitted a doctor’s note about her injuries and data to prove her relationship with Kim to the police.
The singer is to be summoned by the police soon.
