Just hours after Kim Seon Ho's hit romantic-comedy drama "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" ended, an anonymous informant "A" made a post that claims something about the supposed private life of an actor, which they named "Actor K," through an online community.

"A" claimed that she and "Actor K" had been dating from the beginning of last year until four months ago, and after getting pregnant, she was forced to have an abortion.
