Kang Kyung-Joon Retains Legal Counsel Amid Allegations

Actor Kang Kyung-Joon, recently embroiled in allegations of an extramarital affair and facing an alimony lawsuit, has officially hired an attorney. The Sunday Newspaper reported this development on January 19, marking a significant turn in the ongoing legal drama.

Affair Allegations and Alimony Lawsuit

Kang Kyung-Joon is accused of having an affair with Ms. A, a married employee at a real estate agency. Ms. A’s husband, Mr. B, filed a lawsuit on December 26, demanding 50 million KRW (37,500 USD) in alimony from Kang Kyung Joon. The actor has responded by securing legal representation.

Actor’s Silence and Legal Strategy

Despite the public sharing of details, Kang Kyung Joon has remained silent. However, his decision to hire a lawyer, as reported by the Sunday Newspaper, indicates he is taking the allegations seriously. The delay in formally announcing his legal counsel might be due to administrative reasons.

Speculation Over Settlement Talks

Media speculation is rife about Kang Kyung Joon’s motives for hiring a lawyer. It’s suggested that he might be seeking legal advice to negotiate a settlement with Mr. B, rather than preparing for a court battle.

Mr. B’s Lawyer on Potential Agreement

Responding to inquiries about a possible settlement, Mr. B’s lawyer stated, “We cannot confirm it.” This response subtly hints that Kang Kyung Joon’s team may have initiated discussions for an agreement.

Implications of Seeking an Agreement

Kang Kyung Joon’s active pursuit of an agreement suggests an acknowledgement of potential wrongdoing. Even if a settlement is reached, the details are likely to remain confidential. A Seocho-dong lawyer explained that confidentiality clauses are common in celebrity lawsuits involving extramarital affairs and alimony, making it challenging for such details to become public.
