If you remember, the beloved star Kim Seon Ho became a household sensation overnight! However, his popularity came crashing down once the messages from this actor’s manipulative ex-girlfriend were shared on message boards!
Back in October of 2021, Kim Seon Ho, who is best recognized for his lead acting role in ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’ was cancelled after messages of his abuse to his girlfriend and alleged enforced abortions went public. Despite it being completely the opposite and far from the truth, the damage was already done and in a flash, Kim Seon Ho was completely canceled. From losing his advertisement deals, and endorsements to even appearances on TV shows being rejected, his face blurred on previously recorded shows and future contracted acting roles being terminated, the star faced a plethora of problems you can see here.
After being wrongly canceled, the actor faced so much hardship, blame, and was completely abandoned by the industry he grew to connect with. Due to the incessant trend of cancel culture ruining K-Pop idol’s lives, Kim Seon Ho received trauma and has shown just how negatively impacted he has been since this issue.
Recently, it has come to the attention of the media and the Korean entertainment industry that Kim Seon Ho will not be involved in any future acting, modeling, appearances and other similar activities for all of 2022. Aside from the major lead role he had contracted, lost, and reinstated again with ‘Sad Tropics,’ the actor and his agency stated that Kim Seon Ho has declined multiple opportunities and will not be taking on any new projects outside of the promotions and work of the film produced by Park Hoon Jung, who is famous for other films such as ‘New World‘ and ‘The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion‘ and more.
Kim Seon Ho revealed that the loss of a lead role in a major film would create a string of problems for the production and staff, so he maintained his position and will make it his only appearance for 2022. It seems after the industry completely pulled a 180* and turned their backs on the actor, Kim Seon Ho feels unsafe, uncomfortable and uneasy continuing this line of work. Now fans worry if more and more stars who faced this sort of issue will react the same way?
Sadly, it seems cancel culture, an unhealthy bandwagon act that can often ruin the livelihood of many innocent people, has taken away the chance of seeing this talented actor on the stage and our TVs. As more and more Korean celebrities that are cancelled continues to grow, we can only worry how this will damage the entertainment industry.
