Actor Kim Seon Ho is ready to meet viewers and audiences a year after his “private life controversy”
2021 is the year that gave Kim Seon Ho both the best and the worst. On October 17, 2021, when the tvN drama “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” ended with ratings peaking at 12.7%, Kim Seon Ho drew attention and gained massive popularity for his role of Hong Du Sik. However, as the controversy over his private life, where an ex-girlfriend accused Kim Seon Ho of forcing her to have an abortion, arose at the end of the drama, the actor had to go into an indefinite hiatus.
The door to Kim Seon Ho’s comeback was opened when the truth about his controversy finally came out, but by then, the actor had already experienced all of his worst moments. First, the actor had to leave the cast of “2 Days & 1 Night”, a TV program that received a lot of love, then gave up on other projects that he was planning to appear in and those under discussion as well.
In the end, throughout his hiatus, Kim Seon Ho focused on the filming for the movie “Sad Tropical”, and although he was named as the winner at various awards ceremonies, he did not appear in public and spent time on “self-reflection”. Now, about a year after his private life controversy, Kim Seon Ho is getting ready to meet his fans again and taking steps.
Kim Seon Ho, who took a step back and appeared in “Touching the Void”, which ended in September, will be included in the 2022 Asian Artist Awards lineup in December and step on the red carpet. This will be the first time Kim Seon Ho attends an awards ceremony since the controversy, followed by a fan meeting in Korea.
After “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”, Kim Seon Ho is also preparing to return to the small screen. He has received an offer for the romantic historical drama “The New Row of Hashes” (literal translation) and is positively reviewing the role.
“The New Row of Hashes”, which takes place during the “Joseon Renaissance”, revolves around the life of Crown Prince Lee Hyang, a scientist who loved the stars, and the mysterial woman Hae Ru, who sees the future. Yoon Yi Soo, the original author of “Love in the Moonlight”, is in charge of writing, and the male lead is expected to be Kim Seon Ho, who has shown a sweet romantic chemistry through “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”.
In addition, Kim Seon Ho is also scheduled to appear in director Park Hoon Jung’s new movie “Tyrant”, who worked with him in “Sad Tropical”. It is known that actor Cha Seung Won is also positively considering to appear in “Tyrant”.
Kim Seon Ho filled his schedule for fans who waited for him and took steps to return. Having fallen from the top spot due to a sudden controversy, the actor is expected to come back as more mature, and the public is paying keen attention to what image Kim Seon Ho will show in the future.
