This actor swung his fist at his brother-in-law which resulted in a monetary penalty

Actor Kim Dong-hyun (48), who played supporting roles in various dramas and movies, was fined for swinging his fist at his brother-in-law. 

According to the legal community, Kim Dong-hyun was briefly fined 2 million won in December last year for injuries, after hitting A (45), who is his brother-in-law, on the head and neck several times after visiting his home, threatening that he “gotta teach A a lesson.”

Kim Dong-hyun objected to the ruling and requested a formal trial, but withdrew his request for one only three days before the first trial on the Mar 11th.

When A protested against the construction carried out by the interior company Kim introduced, Kim Dong-hyun has made abusive and threatening remarks on the phone, saying, “I will go to your neighborhood and beat you up,” He was then accused of hitting A on the head and neck several times at 9 p.m. on August 19 last year.

In this case, A was diagnosed with injuries such as cerebral hemorrhage, nasal fracture, and cervical sprain at the hospital. In addition, A is known to be receiving psychiatric treatment after he complained of having post-traumatic stress disorders such as depression and anxiety due to the shock caused by the assault incident. In addition to the allegations of injury, A further sued Kim Dong-hyun for intimidation and invasion of housing, and the police have sent the case to the prosecution in January.

A representative from A‘s side appealed, “Although the victim is a male, Kim knew that it was not easy for A to counterattack the assault because the victim suffered severe systemic arthritis due to a severe immune disease. Kim has committed merciless injury to the extent that A suffered from mental disorder right in front of his mother-in-law. A is having a hard time with anxiety and aftereffects of injury, worrying that Kim Dong-hyun may come to his house someday and attack him in retaliation. Nevertheless, Kim Dong-hyun is making it even more difficult for A as he does not reflect on himself, let alone apologize.”
