While his career is soaring, Kim Seon Ho’s personal life has taken a sour turn.
On October 18, a woman uploaded an anonymous post to an online community to accuse an actor she dated of forcing her to have an abortion on a false promise of marriage. The post did not state the name of the actor, but several onlookers speculated that the actor in question was Kim Seon Ho. The next day, Kim Seon Ho’s agency Salt Entertainment stated that they were checking the facts, and on October 20, Kim Seon Ho shared an apology letter through his agency.
Read Kim Seon Ho’s apology below:
This is Kim Seon Ho. I sincerely apologize for the belated statement. I experienced a fear that felt for the first time after the article with the mention of my name was released a while ago, and that is why I am writing this now.
I was seeing her with good emotions. In that process, I hurt her due to my carelessness and inconsiderate actions.
I wanted to meet and apologize to her directly, but I am not able to properly convey the apology now and am waiting for that time to come. For now, I would like to genuinely apologize to her through this statement.
I apologize for also disappointing all of those who trusted and supported me until the end. It was all thanks to those who supported me that I was able to become the actor Kim Seon Ho, but I had forgotten that. I apologize for causing trouble to my co-stars and all of the related staff who worked with me due to my flaws. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone who was hurt.
I am aware that this rambling statement will not fully reach your hearts, but I am still attempting to convey my sincere thoughts. I am very sorry.
Salt Entertainment also shared a separate statement of apology:
Hello. This is Salt Entertainment. We apologize for for causing concern to many with actor Kim Seon Ho’s personal matters. We would like to apologize to all those who were disappointed and troubled by this issue. Once again, we apologize for worrying you with an unpleasant matter.
