Meanwhile, on Oct 17th, an article titled “I accuse the dual and shameless real-life personality of a popular actor K” appeared on an online community. A, who posted the post, claimed that she was the ex-girlfriend who had dated K, and that K unilaterally notified her of their breakup after urging her to have an abortion under the pretense of marriage.

Hello, this is Kim Seon-ho.
I sincerely apologize for the delay in my statement.
After the article mentioning my name was released not long ago, I’ve experienced such fear for the first time. Finally, now I was able to write something for you.
I met that person with good feelings. In the process, I hurt her with my carelessness and inconsiderate behaviors.
I wanted to meet her in person and apologize first, but I still cannot deliver a proper apology and I am waiting for the time to do so.
First of all, I would like to sincerely apologize to her through this statement. I am sorry for disappointing everyone who trusted and supported me until the end.
Thanks to people who always supported me, I was able to stand here as an actor named Kim Seon-ho, but I forgot about that.
Due to my shortcomings, I am sorry for causing trouble to the staff and people who have worked with me. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone who has been hurt.
I know that my rambling writing will not fully reach the hearts of many people, but I want to express my sincerity like this. I am really sorry.“Kim Seon Ho, 20.10.2021
