The return of K-actor Kim Sun Ho to his entertaining acting career is not a question of if but when, and it appears the first steps are being taken. This week he was snapped by K-ent and with lots of fans waiting for him at Incheon Airport for his return to South Korea after an extended stay in Thailand filming the movie Sad Tropics. Of all his lined up movies, this was the only one to go forward with him still as a cast member after his scandal with his ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy and abortion back in October of 2021. She alleged he was a bad boyfriend, he apologized, then Dispatch went on a tear and released tons of text messages and interviews with her alleged friends and his friends to portray her as conniving and the allegations not what she claimed. In the end his reputation took a hit still as some did not believe the Dispatch counter-attack while others believed that exonerated him. In the case of he said-she said it seems apropos, but what she said about him even if fully true just made him seem focused on his budding career and a bad boyfriend, nothing that should tank his career. So this slow step return feels like it would have happened anyways and now I’m curious to see which direction he takes – it was as romantic leading man before the scandal but he could go the way of a Yoo Ah In and do diverse, indie, or serious fare and eschew the “good boy” vanilla leading man route.
