Kim Seon-ho’s life is the same with Chief Hong’s? Sudden change in public opinion after Dispatch’s attack
Public opinion surrounding Kim Seon-ho has turned around after Dispatch publicly exposed his ex-girlfriend Choi Young-ah.
Various online communities are full of hot topics after Dispatch unveiled Kim Seon-ho’s ex-girlfriend Choi Young-ah’s real name and job on Oct 26th and raised 12 questions towards her, saying, “The truth is distorted.”
The controversy continues as many of the shocking disclosures posted by Kim Seon-ho’s ex-girlfriend are claimed to be different from the truth. Nevertheless, regarding Kim Seon-ho, who took responsibility with an apology without refutation or excuses, netizens are giving their response, saying, “Even the false accusation is the same. character Chief Hong also took all of the responsibility alone in the drama ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’.”
On Oct 26th, Dispatch uploaded an article titled, “Mrs Choi Young-ah, we want to ask you about this. Kim Seon-ho, 12 Distorted Truths” where they revealed a timeline from her meeting with Kim Seon-ho to their parting.
Citing acquaintances of the two, the media quoted Kim Seon-ho as saying, “She did not reveal from the beginning that she was a divorced woman, Kim Seon-ho caught her repeatedly lying during their relationship, the abortion did happen but both of them agreed to do it, and he even took care of her by making seaweed soup for two weeks after abortion.”
Choi Young-ah had also secretly taken and stored Kim Seon-ho’s daily life photos and videos. “Kim Seon-ho discovered numerous videos and recording files stored on Choi Young-ah’s computer while checking each other’s KakaoTalk with Choi Young-ah. Isn’t it scary to think about it from a different perspective?” The acquaintance asked, shocking everyone.
Netizens commented, “Am I the only one who thinks he resembles Chief Hong in ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’, who has a panic disorder because he took all the responsibility even for things that were not true?”, “I can see Chief Hong of ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha” in him”, “I hope Kim Seon-ho would come back soon”, “The ex-girlfriend even took videos of him without his consent. Her actions give me goosebumps.”
Moreover, they have also speculated that Dispatch’s report may cause more controversies since it revealed the ex-girlfriend’s personal information, such as her real name and job, although she already hinted to be “taking strict legal actions against excessive defamation of her identity” through her law firm. Regarding Dispatch’s revelation, Kim Seon-ho’s company, Salt Entertainment, stated, “We have nothing to say about the report related to Choi Young-ah. We’re sorry.”
Meanwhile, Kim Seon-ho recently got involved in a scandal related to his private life when his ex-girlfriend exposed him to forcing abortion under the pretense of marriage. Four days later, Kim Seon-ho issued his official position and apologized, “I hurt her with my careless and inconsiderate actions. I wanted to meet her in person and apologized to her first. I haven’t been able to deliver a proper apology since I’m still waiting for that time. I’m sorry for disappointing people who have trusted and supported me until the end.”
Kim Seon-ho’s apology turned the whole situation into something that had already happened and been solved. From being a rising actor, Kim Seon-ho dropped down to become a “loser-actor” who everyone wants to cut ties with in fear of being negatively affected. Brands which Kim Seon-ho was modeling for have either deleted or set private all content related to him. KBS2’s entertainment show “2 Days 1 Night”, which Kim Seon-ho had been a regular member for a long time, also edited him out of their broadcast after he withdrew from the show.
