Choi Young Ah, a KBS reporter and ex-girlfriend of South Korean actor Kim Seon Ho, accused her former partner of allegedly forcing her an abortion. The news came as a shock for many South Korean drama fans. Recently Hometown Cha Cha Cha actor apologized for his action.
The South Korean actor came to prominence to a worldwide audience through his latest stint on the tvN series Hometown Cha Cha. Kim Seon-Ho portrayed the character of Hong Du Sik, aka Chief Hong.
Following the allegations, the 35-year-old actor issued a statement with an apology for his careless and inconsiderate actions towards his ex-girlfriend, Choi Young Ah. In the statement, the actor said,
"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 met 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," the actor added.
The actor further apologized to his co-stars for causing trouble and "sincerely" apologized to everyone who was hurt. However, his statement couldn't save him from exiting the shows he was recently involved in. The 35-year-old actor was dropped from the KBS2 series, "2 Days & 1 Night Season 4."
The network released a statement, which stated that Kim Seon-Ho will be edited out from the already filmed footage to "reduce discomfort felt by viewers." Moreover, the actor also lost several brand endorsements following the controversy.
