'Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha' Star Kim Seon Ho Admits to Allegations and Apologizes
On October 17 through an online community, an article was posted by an anonymous person "A" exposing the reality and subhuman behavior of a rising actor under the name "Actor K."
During the time of their relationship, the said actor reportedly coerced his ex-girlfriend to abort their unborn baby, which was illegal at the time, under the pretense of marriage.
"A" said in their post that the two of them had dated from the beginning of 2020 and became pregnant in July of the same year. After they aborted their baby, said "Actor K" changed and became distant, eventually breaking up with her.
Many speculations were made and hints were clearly pointing at the "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" star and "Good Boy" Kim Seon Ho.
However, Kim Seon Ho's side remained silent until the morning of October 19 when his label, SALT Entertainment, released a statement addressing the matter.
On October 20, the "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" actor finally breaks his silence as he releases an official statement and apology to his ex-girlfriend.
He begins his statement with an apology for his belated personal statement. According to him, he felt overwhelmed and scared and wasn't able to show himself until now.

'Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha' Star Kim Seon Ho's Career Plummets
"Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha," the successful global drama in which actor Kim Seon Ho starred in alongside Shin Min Ah, recently ended blissfully. However, the achievements were tarnished by the issue that circulated around the lead.
Because of this, Kim Seon Ho's career is starting to become opaque. The same day of the allegations, Domino's Pizza Korea pulled out all Kim Seon Ho-related ads and endorsements from their official pages.
Not only that but his personal life greatly affected his upcoming works. His long-time variety show "2 Days & 1 Night" is reportedly set to conclude due to the issue.
He is also set to lead the films "Sad Tropical," "Doog Days," and "2 O'Clock Date," however, the directors of the films expressed a cautious stance on the controversy, saying, "We are carefully monitoring the situation."
"Sad Tropical" is a new film directed by Park Hoon Jung and is set to start filming this November. "Dog Days" is an omnibus film produced by JK Film and "2 O'Clock Date" is director Lee Sang Geun's next film after the box office hit "Exit".
