Kim Seon Ho Confirmed To Star In Upcoming Movie He Was In Talks For
Kim Seon Ho’s casting in the film “Sad Tropics” (literal title) will remain unchanged.
Production company NEW shared, “After much deliberation, the producers of ‘Sad Tropics’ have decided to film the movie this year with actor Kim Seon Ho.”
This confirms that Kim Seon Ho will be making his big screen debut through “Sad Tropics.”
Last month, Kim Seon Ho was involved in a controversy after his ex-girlfriend uploaded an anonymous post stating that her unnamed actor ex-boyfriend had manipulated her into getting an abortion under false pretenses. Kim Seon Ho admitted that he was the actor mentioned in the post and released an official apology.
Following the controversy, Kim Seon Ho was removed from two films he had been confirmed to star in: director Kim Deok Min’s omnibus film “Dog Days” (literal title) and director Lee Sang Geun’s romantic comedy film “2 O’Clock Date” (literal title). At the time, the producers “Sad Tropics” stated that they were discussing their course of action in light of the situation.
“Sad Tropics” is a story about a man who has a Korean father and a Filipino mother. He dreams of becoming a boxer and comes to Korea to find his father who abandoned him. The film will be directed by producing director (PD) Park Hoon Jung, who produced hit films like “New World,” “V.I.P,” and “The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion.” Go Ara is in talks to also star in the film.
According to Star News, while the film was originally scheduled to go into filming in mid-November, they now plan to begin shooting in December.
