The scandal that almost brought the downfall of popular actor Kim Seon-ho is now becoming the motion for his rise back to public sympathy. The entire story has been under extreme scrutiny from fans all thanks to Kim Seon-ho's former girlfriend. The actor's now public love life was taken hostage by Korean news agency Dispatch and it seems the agency has taken upon itself the responsibility to save his maligned reputation by revealing intimate details from the relationship in the form of Kakao Talk screenshots.

On November 1, Dispatch revealed more chats that were exchanged in July, 2020, between the then-couple as they spoke about Kim Seon-ho’s girlfriend having an abortion. In their story, Dispatch revealed how all 'positive' texts from the actor were 'negatively' scrutinized by his then-girlfriend. It was shown how she sent their chats as proof to her acquaintances and bad-mouthed him despite the actor trying to stand with her after her abortion.

After he was shown as the bad guy while his then-girlfriend victimized herself, Kim Seon-ho and his agency Salt Entertainment apologized to the public for causing concerns among fans as Kim Seon-ho was dropped from multiple advertisement campaigns and the post-production and release events for his famous tvN drama ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’ was put on halt. While most brands and labels deleted the actor, some stood true to him and supported him through this crisis.

As Dispatch revealed the details of the relationship showing how Seon-ho's ex-girlfriend was caught cheating on several occasions by the actor, which was the real reason for their break-up, general public and media have started coming out in support of Kim Seon-ho.
