At the height of the 2021 Baeksang Arts Awards, the "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" star faces massive criticism regarding bullying and manipulating issues.

The allegation was so intense that it prompted the rising actress not to attend the annual ceremony.

Prior to winning the award, Seo Ye Ji was also criticized by some for leading the polls, pointing out that she did not deserve the recognition.

Despite this, she managed to score the TikTok Popularity Award with a total of 789,170 votes, eclipsing "Mr. Queen" star Shin Hye Sun and River Where the Moon Rises" star Kim So Hyun in second and third place.

Following Kim Seon Ho's controversy, some believe that the said Baeksang Arts category was cursed as both actors ended up in the same scenario.

For weeks, the "Eulachacha Waikiki 2" star faced issues regarding "abortion" and "gaslighting" his ex-girlfriend.

It came after the woman shared her grievance in an online community naming actor K for pressuring her to abort her pregnancy with the false hope of marrying her in the future.

Of course, the post spread like wildfire on social media and identified Kim Seon Ho as 'actor K."

However, he immediately addressed the issue and apologized to the girl, his colleagues and even to fans, who got disappointed over his actions.
