Just as Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha was wrapping its finale and catapulted Kim Seon Ho‘s popularity to an all-time high, he was caught in an abortion controversy with his ex-girlfriend, former weather anchor Choi Young Ah. While she initially accused the actor of forcing her to get an abortion and refusing to take responsibility, new evidence emerged to show that Young Ah was actually the first to bring up the abortion.
On November 1, Korean media outlet Dispatch published a 22-page record of 284 text conversations between Seon Ho and Young Ah.
In the screenshots of the conversations, Seon Ho was willing to take responsibility of his ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy and suggested that they get married. Seon Ho repeatedly tried comforting Young Ah, and said they should meet with each other’s parents to plan for marriage. He wrote, “My love, no matter what happens, I’ll take full responsibility.” He even suggested to pull out of movie contracts in order to take care of Young Ah.
In response to Seon Ho’s suggestions, Young Ah expressed that it was not the right time for a child, and stated that she wants to focus on earning money. Not moved by Seon Ho’s words, Choi Young Ah texted, “Getting married solely because of children and responsibility is something that I don’t like.”
Seon Ho was conflicted in choosing abortion, as he was concerned if this would affect her future chances of pregnancy. “Let’s decide after discussing and overcoming the problem together! I have never loved anyone the same way I’ve loved you!”
Although the pair ultimately mutually agreed on the abortion, Seon Ho was not the irresponsible ex-boyfriend that Young Ah claimed. They continued to stay together after the abortion, but their relationship soured this year because of speculations over Young Ah cheating.
Better late than never, it looks like Seon Ho can finally steer free of negative criticisms as the truth continues to unravel. Seon Ho’s advertisements are airing once again, and the actor is said to proceed in filming movie Sad Tropical in November.
