Make way for our new movie actor: Kim Seon Ho is confirmed to star in the Korean film, Sad Tropics!

In October, Seon Ho has been caught in a controversy involving his ex-girlfriend which was soon followed by an apology letter from him. Not long after, Korean media outlet Dispatch released two reports where they shared how his ex has reportedly distorted the truth. Although there were some brands who pulled out his photos on their SNS and he was removed from his two other films, it looks like Seon Ho has survived South Korea's cancel cultureand his casting in Sad Tropics is proof.
