“Why now?”, the correlation between Kim Seon-ho’s scandal timing and “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” ending

Amid suspicions that actor Kim Seon-ho forced his ex-lover A to have an abortion under the pretense of marriage, people are questioning the timing of A’s disclosure.

On Oct 17th, A posted an article titled “I’m here to accuse the dual and shameless real personality of a popular actor, K.” A, who said she was the ex-girlfriend of actor K, exposed, “He demanded a one-sided sacrifice from me, using the excuses that he was sensitive due to his filming schedule and that he had become a star now. He fooled me under the guise of marriage and forced me to get rid of my precious baby”. A claimed that he started dating K early last year and was pregnant in July of the same year. However, K asked A to terminate her pregnancy for reasons such as the penalties he might need to pay for. In the process, K conciliated A, saying he would speed up the marriage with A.

However, A said that K’s attitude changed after the abortion. In addition, K broke off his relationship with A, saying their relationship had been noticed by an entertainment media outlet. A, who is suffering from the aftereffects of the separation, confessed, “If I didn’t write it out like this, I wouldn’t be able to live a proper life in the shadow of the pain he gave me for the rest of my life.”

A did not reveal K‘s real name in the post. Instead, she placed clues throughout the article for people to guess the identity of K. K‘s only friend was the stage play actor he mentioned on broadcast, he has been on the rise since the end of last year, the title of his recent drama was changed, his controversy after raising his voice on a show, he signed for fans while going out with his friend at a department store, all of these are facts that have been posted and verified on a community site.

Accordingly, netizens pointed out K as actor Kim Seon-ho at once. In the meantime, the controversy triggered by A‘s revelation ignited even more. Not only was Kim Seon-ho a “trendy actor” who has been loved for his three consecutive TV hits, including “2 Days & 1 Night”, “Start-Up” and “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”, but the contrary between his existing good, sincere image and the mentioned actor K also shocked the audience.

In particular, A‘s revelation drew more attention as it was posted on the same day as the last episode of “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”, which is currently known as Kim Seon-ho‘s lifetime work. “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” started at 6.8% (provided by Nielsen Korea) and successfully wrapped up with its highest rating of 12.7%. Accordingly, the industry believes that the controversy related to Kim Seon-ho has unintentionally helped “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” become hotter and increase its impact.

Some netizens responded that A may have been waiting for the end of “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”. As the drama is going viral, Kim Seon-ho‘s position has also been solidified day by day. Therefore, it is speculated that A tried to destroy Kim Seon-ho‘s image by revealing his personality on the day he would have received the most attention as an actor.

On the other hand, there is an opinion that A put aside her personal feelings towards Kim Seon-ho and postponed the post in respect of people involved in “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”. In this regard, an entertainment official said, “In the past, there were cases where dramas and other cast members suffered a lot of damage due to the issue of a specific actor. I think A‘s action was a kind of consideration.”

A has not made any particular position since she hinted a further revelation by saying she has evidence. Therefore, it is not clear why A posted the revelation in time for the end of “Hometown Cha Cha Cha”. What is certain is that many fans have already been let down by Kim Seon-ho‘s scandal, and the controversy surrounding him is difficult to explain.

On the morning of Oct 19th, Kim Seon-ho’s agency finally announced their official position after remaining silent for 2 days, “We are currently investigating the facts related to the anonymous post. Since nothing has yet to be confirmed, we earnestly ask for your patience.” Currently, the public is focusing on how Kim Seon-ho, who is commonly acknowledged as a “trending actor”, will overcome the biggest crisis since his debut.
