Is this a sign of Kim Seon-ho’s comeback?

Start-Up and Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha actor Kim Seon-ho has penned a heartfelt message to fans on Instagram on May 7, seven months after his abortion controversy with his reported ex-girlfriend. 

Sharing a snap of a pastel-colored sky, Seon-ho apologized to fans for making them “go through difficult times because of my shortcomings.” He also thanked his supporters for greeting him on his 36th birthday on May 8. 

“Thank you for celebrating my birthday this year and sending me more birthday wishes than I deserve. I will remember the precious feelings you’ve expressed to me and I will become an actor who can repay your support and encouragement,” Seon-ho said. 

Of course, fans expressed their love for the Korean actor in the comments. 

“We will always support you. Thank you for coming back after taking some time to heal. We love you so soooo much, happy birthday,” one netizen wrote.

Another fan said she’s happy to see Seonho back on social media. “I’m happy, indeed, to see you here again. Wish all good ones comes to you from now on. always supports,” she added.

“Aaaa Kim Seonho is back,” another netizen said.

Seonho's final post before his Instagram hiatus was a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the hit K-drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha.

In October 2021, Seon-ho was involved in an abortion controversy with his ex-girlfriend who revealed that she was forced to terminate her pregnancy out of “sacrifice.” The actor then apologized for “disappointing” his fans, co-actors, and his staff due to the controversy.

Seon-ho’s ex-girlfriend has since responded to the actor’s statement, admitting there has been a “misunderstanding” between them. She did not explain more about what went down between them. 

Following the controversy, the actor was removed from his many endorsements and projects. He also stepped down from the Korean variety show 2 Days and 1 Night and his upcoming films Dog Days and 2 O’Clock Date.

Since then, Seon-ho has reportedly been turning down endorsement, film, and K-drama offers for 2022.
