Custody battle
On November 21, 2006, a man with the surname Han filed a lawsuit against Hero’s guardians. Han claimed he was Hero’s biological father, and thus wanted parental rights.

Han cited the reason for the lawsuit against Hero’s legal guardians as “for not going through the proper procedures before registering [Hero] in [the legal guardians’] custody.” He divorced Hero’s biological mother in late 1980s, and gave up his custody over his child, leaving him under Mrs. Han’s custody. However, he had found out some years ago Hero had been raised by a third party, not his biological mother. A DNA test was to be performed in order to prove validity of Han’s claim. Many legal consultants comment that since the adoption had taken place correctly according to the corresponding law, no legal change will be involved regardless of the outcome.

The first hearing was to be held in Hero’s hometown, Gongju, on November 29, 2006. But on November 22, Han dropped the charges against Hero’s legal guardians. Han said that he originally intended to resolve his biological son’s military duty conflicts after being informed of dual citizenship by Ministry of Military Affairs, which involved verifying the fact that he is the biological father. He did not expect his intention to lead to such a scandal, and states that he was scarred by speculations that he wanted to take advantage of Hero’s fame.

In reaction to the matter, Hero uploaded a journal entry on his official fan club website, and said that he was informed of the existence of separate biological parents by his mother two or three years ago, and it had been quite a shock to him. With his current mother’s support, his biological mother has been able to keep in touch with him, and to meet occasionally, but whereabouts of his father had been unknown.

He vigorously expressed his will to live by the name of “Kim Jaejoong,” not by his birth name Han Jaejoon (한재준), and promised to be loyal to all four of his parents. He also said he did not want his family history exposed to the public due to this incident.

Jong Ki has adorable smile, cute face, and handsome boy. I love his act in SSC as playboy, Ku Yong Ha. He always smile even when he feels hurt and trapped in bad condition. “Ku Yong Ha imnida”, I guess it’s one of his favorite words in this drama ( SSC ). Love see him use traditional clothes like that. So adorable and cute ^^

Recently, TOP has successfully finished filming his role as the school’s top fighter in a Korean drama called, I Am Sam. His character’s name in the drama was Chae Mu Shin and his talent as an actor has impressed the fans and the viewers as well. Even though BIG BANG is listed as his debut, TOP has been rapping since middle school under the name Tempo.
