Singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong said he will take responsibility if reports of his ex-girlfriend's pregnancy are true, according to his agency KeyEast on Monday.
The agency released a statement after a local magazine on Sunday reported that Kim was reunited with his girlfriend, identified as Choi, who is pregnant. Choi filed an assault charge against Kim last year, but dropped it when they reached a settlement.
"They actually met up a few times after that but agreed to go their separate ways at the end of last year," the agency said.
"In early January, Choi told Kim that she was pregnant. Kim and his parents called Choi and her parents several times, asking her to meet him in person and see a doctor for pregnancy test," it said. "But she refused and has not been in touch since."
The agency dismissed marriage rumors but said Kim is willing to take full responsibility for any child.
