Is K-pop star Kim Hyun Joong back with his girlfriend and becoming a dad?

SEOUL (THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong has reportedly reunited with his ex-girlfriend, who is expecting a child in September.

According to the local magazine Woman Sense, "the two have successfully mended their relationship" and "Choi is now into her 10th week of pregnancy".

The news surprised many, as Kim had been convicted in January of beating Choi.

Kim's agency, however, did not confirm the report, saying it would talk to him to check whether the story was true.
