Kim Seon Ho Removed From 2 Upcoming Films
Kim Seon Ho will no longer appear in two of the films he was scheduled to act in.
Kim Seon Ho had been in talks to make his big screen debut through director Park Hoon Jung’s “Sad Tropics” (literal title) and then star in director Kim Deok Min’s omnibus film “Dog Days” (literal title). He was also confirmed for the leading role in director Lee Sang Geun’s romantic comedy film “2 O’Clock Date” (literal title) along with Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA. Go Ara is in talks for a role in “Sad Tropics.”
Kim Seon Ho recently came under fire for his alleged behavior towards his ex-girlfriend, who accused him of forcing her to have an abortion on false promise of marriage. Kim Seon Ho released an apology and was announced to be withdrawing from KBS2’s variety show “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4,” which he had been starring in as a fixed cast member.
On October 20, a source from “2 O’Clock Date” production company Filmmaker R&K stated to MyDaily, “We have decided to replace the male lead of ‘2 O’Clock Date.'”
Production company JK Film of “Dog Days” also shared, “It’s a bit burdensome to keep going [with Kim Seon Ho] because it’s the role of a romantic couple. We have spoken with the agency, decided to replace him, and are taking the necessary steps.”
Only “Sad Tropics,” which had been scheduled to begin filming in mid-November, has not reached a decision. A source from the film said, “Nothing has been decided so far regarding actor Kim Seon Ho. We are discussing the matter.”
