Kim Seon-ho replaced in 2 films by actors Ahn Bo-hyun and Lee Hyun-woo after scandal
Despite being cleared of the false rumors it looks like K-drama actor Kim Seon-ho is taking his time to return
It looks like despite Kim Seon-ho being cleared of the gaslighting rumors, he is still not ready to return to the industry. In back-to-back reports, it was revealed on December 14 that he has been replaced by actors Ahn Bo-hyun and Lee Hyun-woo in two different films. Earlier in October, Kim Seon-ho was under fire for allegedly manipulating his ex-girlfriend and forcing her to get an abortion. The general public and the industry turned their backs on him, dropping him from projects. Fortunately, the rumors turned out to be false and the actor’s name was cleared.
It was also reported that Kim Seon-ho had returned to acting with the script reading of his first film ‘Sad Tropics’. The promising actor had been the lead in the popular K-drama ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’ and during that time had landed his first three movie projects. Unfortunately, on the day of the finale, the abortion rumors cropped up. A lot of fans banded together when loopholes were found and also helped him win two popularity awards at the 2021 Asia Artist Awards.
Kim Seon-ho replaced in two movies
But it seems that Kim Seon-ho wants to stay away from the spotlight for the time. Despite everything clearing up, he declined to attend the Asia Artist Awards even though it had been reported in advance that he had won two awards. And while there are reports that he has begun filming with the movie ‘Sad Tropics’ he has yet to make a public appearance. Following the aftermath of the scandal, all of the productions reported that they would resume their projects with him. With ‘Sad Tropics’, Kim Seon-ho was also supposed to be in ‘2 O’Clock Date’ and ‘Dog Days’.
Ahn Bo-hyun in ‘2 O’Clock Date’
Unfortunately, it has been reported that Kim Seon-ho’s decision to withdraw from ‘2 O’Clock Date’ and ‘Dog Days’ during the scandal has remained and he has no intention of rejoining the films. On December 14, it was reported that Netflix favorite Ahn Bo-hyun had been cast as the lead in ‘2 O’Clock Date’ alongside Girls’ Generation’s Yoona. He was previously the lead in ‘My Name’ and the antagonist in the 2020 Netflix drama ‘Itaewon Class’. ‘2 O’Clock Date’ is a rom-com about a man who finally meets his downstairs neighbor who is a mysterious woman with a secret.
Lee Hyun-woo in ‘Dog Days’
Kim Seon-ho is also going to be replaced in what would have been his third movie credit, ‘Dog Days’. Lee Hyun-woo is a child actor who is causing a buzz for being cast in the Korean remake of ‘Money Heist’ and playing Rio’s Korean counterpart. A media outlet stated that he had been offered Seon-ho’s role in 'Dog Days' and he had accepted. Hyun-woo is set to play one of the leads in the ensemble movie ‘Dog Days’, a slice-of-life about several people and their lives with their pets. The film has also cast Oscar-winning actress Youn Yeo-jung, movie actor Yoo Hae-jin and Daniel Henney of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ fame.
