Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha star, 35-year-old actor Kim Seon Ho, is seeing his career crashing down after his ex-girlfriend, Choi Young Ah, accused him of forcing her to get an abortion and then breaking up. Although Seon Ho was initially hammered, South Korea’s Dispatch latest expose cite three mutual friends’ testimonies which claim that Young Ah had lied.

She accepted his apology, and stated that she did not mean to cause such a fuss. She felt guilty, and admitted that some parts of the story were exaggerated. However, the damage was done and Seon Ho’s image took took a nosedive with many of his endorsements and filming offers cancelled.
She Was Dishonest from the Beginning
After Seon Ho’s ex-girlfriend was revealed to be former weather broadcaster, 37-year-old divorcee Choi Young Ah, further details about their relationship were also spilled.
Meeting at a friend’s gathering at the end of 2019, they started dating in March of 2020. However, Young Ah only disclosed that she was divorced after they started dating. Seon Ho confided in a friend that he genuinely liked her, and decided to continue dating her despite his parents’ worries.
She Had Cheated On Him?
Previously, Young Ah claimed that Seon Ho tried to hide their relationship and they could not even hold hands in public. However, Dispatch published photos showing the pair on a date with their beloved dog at a restaurant. They were also seen on dates at a zoo and an amusement park.
To further prove that Young Ah was unreliable, Dispatch published a text message that was shared by a mutual friend. It turns out that Young Ah was lying and meeting other men behind Seon Ho. He found out on July 7, and turned to a friend for support. She sent a text message apologizing, and Seon Ho decided to forgive her.
Seon Ho Was Initially Happy Over Pregnancy
Young Ah had also accused Seon Ho of promising to marry in two years, but urged her to get an abortion otherwise he would have to pay enormous fees for violating endorsement contract terms. She said his attitude changed after she got an abortion.
A mutual friend referred to as B, who is a musical actor and Seon Ho’s junior, said otherwise. He stated that Young Ah learned that she was pregnant on July 24, and Seon Ho was initially happy over the pregnancy. “At first, he thought it was happy news, but of course he was also a little scared. They deliberated for a long time, and unfortunately both decided on an abortion.”
B stated that he accompanied Young Ah on July 27 for the abortion, while Seon Ho went to buy groceries to boil seaweed soup for his girlfriend. Seon Ho then brought Young Ah to his parents. As she had also spent the night in their home before, this contradicted her claims that she was never introduced to his family.
In Young Ah’s post, she stated that Seon Ho was stingy and had only paid approximately $1,700 US dollars in medical expenses after her abortion. A friend disclosed that Young Ah liked buying luxury items, and these were mostly paid by Seon Ho.
Another friend also found many secretly recorded videos and audio clips of Seon Ho on Young Ah’s computer, and questioned her motives.
B stated that Seon Ho’s apology in regards to the abortion was true. Seon Ho tried to understand from her point of view, as he had once truly loved her but did not want their dirty laundry continue to be aired in public.
Based on their knowledge, the three mutual friends felt Seon Ho and Young Ah’s breakup was due to an accumulation of events rather than just the abortion issue.
In regards to the rumors, Seon Ho’s agency S.A.L.T expressed that they had no comments. Many fans felt very sorry that the actor’s career took such a hard hit, and hope that he will be able to make a comeback soon.
