Mr Kim Seon Ho Controversy: Following the Forced Abortion Row Involving His Ex-Girlfriend, He Returns to Acting and Apologizes to His Followers
Actor Kim Seon-ho was born on May 8, 1986, in Seoul, South Korea. It was on the stage that he began his acting career before making his big screen debut in 2017 with the film Good Manager. Start-Up (2020) and Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha (2021), which were broadcast on tvN and Netflix, were two of his first high-profile roles. He was named Gallup Korea’s Television Actor of the Year in 2021 for his work in the country’s television industry.
Actor Kim Seon-ho, whose ex-girlfriend falsely accused him of having an abortion nine months ago, has apologized in tears. During his first press conference since the scandal broke on Wednesday (July 20), the 36-year-old actor read from a note he had written himself. In Touching The Void, on July 8, he made his reappearance after being out of the public eye since October.
“I’m a little jittery and worried that I might stumble over my words, so I’ve written this down. I sincerely hope you will accept this with open minds, “he stated this at the play’s press conference, where it was announced that the play’s two-month run had already been sold out. Two British mountaineers defied death on Peru’s Siula Grande and the drama is based on their true incident.
“I sincerely apologize for the awful news that has alarmed so many people. Reflecting on my past actions, I’ve come to the conclusion that: “According to a report from Yonhap News Agency in South Korea, he said this while sobbing.
“Countless hours have been put in since the spring to prepare for this production. For the sake of my team, I apologize profusely. I’m going to make an effort to improve myself.” He was wrongfully accused of coercing his ex-girlfriend, Ms. Choi Young-ah, into an abortion, but screenshots of text communications between the two proved otherwise. In May of 2021, they called it quits.
Although he was cleared, the breakout star of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha (2021) suffered a blow to his reputation and was dropped from films and television shows as well as by sponsors, despite being cleared.
In Sad Tropics, one of the few projects that didn’t abandon him after the incident, he’ll make his film debut later this year. Known for his work on the critically acclaimed films V.I.P. (2017) and Night In Paradise (2020), Park Hoon-Jung directs the film in which Kim plays a boxer who returns to his native country to search for his long-lost father.
For his return to the stage was the Jang Jin play Ice, where he played a detective who was seeking to convict one of the young suspects of murdering his mother and brother. While working on “Reason,” Kim was joined by Epitone Project, with whom he had previously worked on the band’s music video for which he sang and co-wrote.
Hometown Cha-cha-cha, a TvN drama that aired in August 2021, featured him as an unemployed but all-around handyman in the beach community of Gongjin. During the airing of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha in September 2021, Kim was once again at the top of the brand reputation ranking index of the Korean Business Research Institute.
At its peak, the series’ audience ratings were 13.322 percent, making it one of the most highly rated cable television shows in Korean history. Gallup Korea’s Television Actor of the Year award was given to him in December of 2021.
2022 Theatre Work
The 9th Best Plays Festival revealed that Kim will return to the stage in May 2022 with the play Touching the Void by David Greig. It’s based on the true account of two British mountaineers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, who made it to the top of El Capitan and back alive.
For the character of Joe, Kim is joined by actors Shin Sung-min and Lee Hwi-jong. Art One Theater 2 in Daehangno will host the Korean premiere, directed by Kim Dong-Yeon, from July 8 to September 9 of 2022.
