Kim Seon Ho seems to be losing the trust of fans after recently issuing an apology towards his ex-girlfriend following accusations that he forced her to have an abortion and made false promises of marrying her. The accusations have also led to him losing out on the professional front and it's been reported that he is no longer a part of two upcoming films. The K-drama actor was going to make a transition to the big screen through director Park Hoon Jung's 'Sad Tropics' and was also going to star in director Kim Deok Min's film 'Dog Days'. He was also going confirmed to star as the lead in director Lee Sang Geun's romantic comedy movie '2 o'clock Date' for which he was going to star alongside Girls Generation's YoonA.

On October 18, an anonymous post leveled accusations against Kim Seon Ho for forcing his former girlfriend to have an abortion. The post which came amid the successful ending of hit K-drama 'Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha' did not mention the actor's name directly but people speculated that it was about Kim Seon Ho. On October 19, his agency Salt Entertainment stated that they are aware of the posts and were in the midst of fact-checking. A day later, the agency released a statement on behalf of the actor. "This is Kim Seon Ho. I sincerely apologize for the belated statement. I experienced a fear that felt for the first time after the article with the mention of my name was released a while ago, and that is why I am writing this now. I was seeing her with good emotions. In that process, I hurt her due to my carelessness and inconsiderate actions.
"I wanted to meet and apologize to her directly, but I am not able to properly convey the apology now and am waiting for that time to come. For now, I would like to genuinely apologize to her through this statement. I apologize for also disappointing all of those who trusted and supported me until the end. It was all thanks to those who supported me that I was able to become the actor Kim Seon Ho, but I had forgotten that. I apologize for causing trouble to my co-stars and all of the related staff who worked with me due to my flaws. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone who was hurt.I am aware that this rambling statement will not fully reach your hearts, but I am still attempting to convey my sincere thoughts. I am very sorry," the statement read.
