Actor Kim Seon-ho’s agency only responded with a “Please wait a little bit longer” two days after he was pointed out as “actor K” who is accused of forcing his ex-girlfriend to have an abortion.
The agency has canceled the interview for tvN drama “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”, which was scheduled for Oct 20th, but only said it was due to “internal circumstances.” Many fans and netizens seem to be losing hope after seeing the difference in how the agency responsed to malicious rumors in the past.
Salt Entertainment, Kim Seon-ho‘s agency, has not endured malicious rumors regarding its celebrities. Earlier this year, it revealed that the company has filed a complaint to the prosecution regarding a malicious post about its actress Park Shin-hye, saying, “We are taking regular legal action.”. “We will take legal action against malicious posts such as malicious slander, dissemination of false information, sexual harassment, defamation, and invasion of privacy against our actors, and we clearly say that there will be no consultation or leniency,” the agency stressed.
Kim Seon-ho has also pressed “Like” on the Instagram posts of that announcement in the past. Even when the disclosure about “Actor K,” who people had no choice but to think of Kim Seon-ho, was posted on the online community on the 17th, there are still comments saying, “The agency will soon take strong action against this.”
However, despite the shocking content of forced abortion and marriage pretense, the agency’s position still remained as “checking for authenticity” because no proper evidence was presented two days after the article was posted. As of 12:30 p.m. on the 19th, the article titled “I accuse the dual and shameless real-life personality of a popular actor K” posted on the online community Nate edition has exceeded 2,935,482 views, with as many as 13,418 comments.
In addition, the advertising industry, which seemed to favor Kim Seon-ho in the past, is showing a “break-off” movement by switching Kim-Seon-ho-related contents to private from the previous day. Amidst this situation, Kim Seon-ho‘s fans are sitting on fire.
