South Korean actor Kim Hyun Joong and his ex-girlfriend Ms Choi once again failed to settle their dispute after the fourth round of court hearing, which was held at the Seoul Central District Court recently.

Before entering the court, the legal representatives of both the parties met media personnel and blamed their rivals. While Choi's defence attorney Sun Jong Moon informed the reporters that they have new evidence against the actor, Hyun Joong's lawyer Lee Jae Man claimed that Ms Choi is not sure about his client's blood group and that's why she is not revealing the information about her new born baby.

Meanwhile, lawyer Jong Moon revealed that his client and her baby are doing well. "It seems we'll be ready for the final argument today. Ms. Choi is doing well after giving birth. The child is also growing well," Allkpop quoted as saying.

Although the South Korean actor, his former lover and their legal representatives were tight-lipped after the court hearing, reports suggest that Ms Choi had plans to settle the dispute with Hyun Joong. She contacted his lawyer and informed him that it's a baby boy. "You've not yet seen the baby, but I have a photo. The baby looks just like Kim Hyun Joong. Shall I send you the photo?" she added.

However, the 29-year-old actor's father declined the offer. He revealed that they wish to receive the new born's DNA test results and confirm his fatherhood before seeing the baby, according to Soompi.

The legal dispute between Joong and his former lover Choi began in May 2014, after she filed an assault case against him and also cited emotional distress.
