On October 19, actor Kim Seon Ho's label SALT Entertainment released a new statement in response to the ongoing rumours surrounding 'Actor K'. The agency began by apologising for failing to deliver a prompt statement and confirmed that they are currently verifying facts with Kim Seon Ho regarding the viral controversy. They further requested fans to exercise restraint until the matter is resolved and wait for further updates.

Trigger Warning- Trauma 

For those unversed, an anonymous netizen who claimed that she was the ex-girlfriend of 'Actor K' alleged that this actor persuaded her to get an abortion while they were dating, then dumped her shortly afterwards. The netizen claimed that the real-life persona of 'Actor K' is totally opposite to his on-screen image. When the anonymous post went viral via online communities, numerous netizens speculated that the 'Actor K' mentioned in the post was Kim Seon Ho. 

A popular pizza brand endorsed by Kim Seon Ho made his recent advertisement go private on their official social media networks after the controversy caught fire online. The talented actor who gained worldwide popularity with the hit 2020 drama 'Start Up', concluded the recently successful romantic-comedy-drama 'Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha' opposite Shin Min Ah on October 17.

This is NOT a Korean problem; this is a power problem where mainly powerful men (and sometimes women too) but mostly powerful men, think they can do and treat anyone' however they feel like treating them, regardless of consent because they think they are too powerful and important to face any consequences. So please stop making this an issue of Nationality or race. You could pretty much pick any country around the world and the same accusations and scandals would be present. This is more to do with a culture of toxic masculinity than anything else

Anonymous : I think she is an opportunist to make this accusation now, when he is very successful, why not when it happened (if it happened)? I very much doubt so and if she once got pregnant and did not want to have an abortion nobody would have forced her to do so. I cannot write what I really think of this lady.
