After Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha's success, an online community assumed that Kim Seon Ho was Actor K, an internet user recently slammed.
Despite the success of his Netflix series, Kim Seon Ho immediately became the subject of an accusation that he once forced one of his ex-girlfriends to have an abortion. Although he remained silent after the report first went viral, his removal from ads and the new statement from the agency seemingly proved that the rumor on the South Korean online community was true.
Kim Seon Ho Is Actor K: What His Alleged Ex-Girlfriend Exposed
The internet went wild when a post of a Korean female claiming to be Actor K's ex-girlfriend revealed how the actor forced her to have an abortion.
On Pann Nate's website, the female hinted that Actor K recently rose to fame. However, she outed that the actor forced her to abort their child before taking advantage of her.
Actor K's ex-girlfriend said they broke up four months ago after getting pregnant following single unprotected intercourse. While the doctor told her she was too young and weak to carry the baby, she expressed her desire to continue her motherhood with hopes of receiving support from the actor.
Instead of fathering the child, Actor K reportedly told her he did not have the money yet and asked her to abort the child instead.
Part of the statement, as translated by AllKpop, said:
"He sent me 2 million KRW for abortion procedures. I thought I would share I have been in and out of the hospital so I sent him pictures of receipts and showed how I spent that money. He then flipped out like a mad man saying if I was trying to make him feel guilty. He also started to make a big deal out of something minimal and threaten me."
The ex-girlfriend described the actor as someone cruel and cold who targeted his co-workers behind their backs. He also broke up with her over the phone as he could not lose his fame and career because of her.
Korean citizens asked for proof of her claims, to which she confidently replied she still has pictures with Actor K. However, she could not release them as of the moment due to legal issues.
Kim Seon Ho's Fans Threaten To Take Legal Action Against Alleged Ex-Girlfriend
Although the user did not mention Kim Seon Ho's name, Sports Kyunghyang uploaded pixelated photos of the actor on its site. Fans immediately recognized that Kim Seon Ho is indeed Actor K based on the images.
A Twitter user also said that a reporter already confirmed it was Kim Seon Ho based on the reports going around in South Korea since September 2020.
In response, a fan shared a warning on DC Inside, saying they would take all possible legal measures to stop the reports from coming. They also warned everyone not to damage the actor's reputation by creating groundless rumors.
Even without confirmation, this rumor could end Kim Seon Ho's career immediately, and it would surely sadden all fans who loved him during his Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha stint.
