Kim Seon Ho’s ex-girlfriend A, who recently revealed that the actor made her have an abortion, announced legal actions against death threats and personal attacks.
On the 21st, A’s legal representative issued an official statement regarding the ongoing “victim-blaming”. They wrote, “Right at this moment, personal information about “A” is being recklessly revealed through certain media outlets, social media, and online communities.”
“A is currently suffering from severe psychological stress to the point where it is difficult for her to even go about her everyday life,” they continued. “Please refrain from over-the-top speculation and defamation to prevent A, a non-celebrity, from suffering additional damage.”
Earlier on the 17th, A claimed that actor K tricked her into thinking that he would marry her and even encouraged her to get an abortion. Her revelation also included claims like K bad-mouthing his co-stars and dumping her after she got an abortion.
Soon, Kim Seon Ho was presumed to be actor K, stirring up the industry. After staying silent for three days, Kim Seon Ho released an apology statement through his agency. “I dated her with good intentions. But during the relationship, I hurt her due to my negligence and carelessness,” he wrote. “I would also like to apologize to those who believed in me and supported me.”
Later that same day, A wrote an additional statement in her original post. “There was a time when he and I were truly in love, so I feel bad seeing him collapse in an instant due to my writing, part of which was quite excessive. I have received an apology from that person, and I think some parts were a misunderstanding,” she wrote.
A continued, “I don’t want things that are different from the truth to be spread, and I don’t want our story to be exaggerated anymore. My heart is heavy because I feel like this incident has caused a lot of damage to many people.”
