DBSG"s Young Woong Jae Joong, who has recently been involved in a paternity test case, has revealed his side of the story through SM Entertainment.
On the 22nd, SM Entertainment released a statement, "Like the media has already reported about this case, it is true that Young Woong Jae Joong was brought up by his current adoptive parents. A few years ago, Young Woong Jae Joong and SM Entertainment were informed about the relationship between Jae Joong’s adoptive parents and biological mother. However, we did not reveal this information because this was his private life and we saw no reason as to why this should be public. After finding out about his situation, Young Woong Jae Joong has kept a very nice relationship with both his adoptive parents and biological mother."
Also, "Young Woong Jae Joong is the same person he was before this news was made public, and as a member of Dong Bang Shin Gi, he will continue to be his best."
Young Woong Jae Joong stated, "I don’t remember the specifics because it was all in the past, but a few years ago I was told that I had biological parents who left me with the name of Han Jae Joong. My parents have raised me to this very day and they have kept a close relationship with my biological mother, so I don’t know what exactly brought my biological father to file a claim. But I believe that the present is more important than the past.
I want to be and always will be Kim Jae Joong. That’s how I’m going to live for the rest of my life. I hope that both my adoptive parents and biological parents will be able to keep a close, loving relationship like one family."
Last January, Mr. Han filed paperwork trying to reclaim Young Woong Jae Joong as his own son.
At the court, Mr. Han stated, "When I was divorcing my ex-wife, I turned over all custodial rights to my son. But what caused me to file this claim was that she turned over custodial rights to a third-party couple."
