Kim Seon-ho’s ex-girlfriend to take legal action against malicious comments
Kim Seon-ho’s ex-girlfriend, who recently claimed the actor pressured her into getting an abortion, said she will be taking legal measures against those who post malicious comments and news related to her.
Law firm Bestway, who is representing Kim's ex, released a statement Thursday claiming that she is “suffering mentally to the extent that it is difficult for her to carry on with her daily life.”
She posted claims about Kim anonymously online but various news media outlets and online communities have been circulating her identity and she’s since been receiving countless threats.
The attorney asked the public “to refrain from overboard speculations and defamation so that [the client] does not face further damage.”
The ex-girlfriend uploaded the anonymous post online on Oct. 17, writing that she was involved in a relationship with a rising star who she labeled as “actor K.” The post said that the actor pressured her to get an abortion in July 2020. On Wednesday, Kim released an apology through his agency Salt Entertainment admitting to his faults.
Kim, who has been initially more active in theater, rose to stardom through tvN drama series “Start-Up” in 2020 and most recently through tvN drama series “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” which ended last week. After he admitted the allegations were true, he was immediately dropped from KBS variety show “1 Night, 2 Days” and two upcoming film projects “Date at 2 O’Clock” and “Dog Days.”
On Wednesday evening, the ex-girlfriend updated her previous post saying that she received a direct apology from Kim and there have been “some misunderstandings” between them.
“I am sorry that my post unintentionally caused trouble to so many people,” she wrote. “There was a time when him and I both sincerely loved each other, and I don’t feel good seeing him crumble due to my aggressive post.”
