K-actor Kim Sun Ho to Make First Acting Return in Summer 2022 Theater Production of Documentary Survival Tale Touching the Void

This is such a smart move and one that I really believed he should take if he wanted to slowly return to acting. K-actor Kim Sun Ho has been cast in the upcoming July 2022 Seoul theater stage production of 2003 documentary movie Touching the Void. It’s based on a true story of two friends Simon Yates and Joe Simpson who survived a mountaineering disaster in the Andes. Kim Sun Ho debuted in theater and it’s comparatively low key venue for him to return to acting with less spotlight from the K-media and K-netizens. He joins the cast of mostly theater regulars including Lee Hwi Jong playing Joe Simpson and Jung Hwan as Simon Yates. I say this is Kim Sun Ho’s first return since his October 2021 scandal because the movie he just finished filming Sad Tropics is not yet scheduled for a release so this theater play will definitely come out before that.

  1. It is a confirmed casting, as reported in several news this morning. Seon Ho along with shin sung minn lee hwi jong will act as joe simpson. Simon yates will be acted by oh jun taek n jung hwan. Not surprising, even when Seon Ho started acting in drama, he was also doing treatre play. Other countries had done this play before n it is so cool that SK is having this play. Super happy for Seon Ho n the whole team n the director.

    • He usually does at least 1 theatre role a year, so I’m glad he’s continuing that. I feel like he’ll be cast in a drama by the end of the year, especially if Sad Tropics does well. Maybe not a rom-com, but luckily there are more genre options these days.

      • So true, thank you n thank you to all who post positive supporting comments.

  2. Just can’t look at him the same way after his scandal. He’s lucky he has a lot of ahjumma fans that will stay with him no matter what, he reminds me of Park Yoochun now.

    • I mean, I understand if you don’t like him, but to compare him to an actual r*pist? Don’t you think that’s too much?

      • Nah.. he’s worse than a rapist. He’s a murderer. He murdered his own unborn child.

      • @Bb09 In my opinion, if it’s a mutual decision on both parties, then it’s none of my business, as it’s a personal matter. but then again, abortion is a very sensitive topic with many nuances to it, so I understand if other people have different opinions about it. For that reason, I’m not going to get into an argument about that, so let’s just agree to disagree. Have a good day!

    • I am not a die- hard fan but as an ” ahjumma ” I would say ” he had sex. He got the girl pregnant. It was a helluva mess especially since he is a celebrity where celebrities are held to a different moral standard. ”

      Did you think everyone in SK was chaste? Haven’t you read about single mothers in SK?

      If being older means that knowing that premarital sex exists then yeah I am an ahjumma. That messy relationships exist then yeah.

      Park YC’s illegal- in SK- drug use and his sexual habits are a whole different kettle of fish.

      I wonder what moral standard or high ground you’re comparing yourself and those 2 males on.

        It’s funny how y’all have gone from β€˜he’s a virgin so she’s lying’ (as if you peabrains had a tracker on his d!ck to know where it’s been) to β€˜he had sex so what?’

        That sloppy mf had unprotected sex and manipulated her into getting an abortion while playing β€˜good boy’ to the public. He admitted to it.

        And if it’s his personal life like y’all keep saying, why did he bother apologizing? Why not tell the public to eff off, it’s his personal life? Why? Because he needs the public to support his career and the public won’t support a two-faced, cowardly POS who gaslit his gf into having an abortion and went to buy seaweed soup while she was going through the process.

        Unless they’re horny ajumma types like you, of course.

    • IDK, I feel like ajummas actually sympathize more with the ex girlfriend, from what I’ve seen. His fans are mostly younger millennials and gen z-ers who saw him in start up and hometown chachacha and love doing tiktok edits of him lol

    • @Bi The other stuff on there also didn’t add much to his character. His ex wrote scathing stuff on his big ego and controlling manipulative ways. He bankrupted a former after-school. I side eye him, he wants to make $$ which is why he came back sooner than intended. He will never be able to reach the heights that his career/fame was guaranteed to go.

    • You do realise it was the girlfriend who wanted an abortion and used the *my body my decisions *trick on him and tried to make him look like the culprit
      Even if he wanted the child I’m sure she would have still aborted the baby without his knowledge
      Are you even sure the baby was his to begin with
      Take your hate somewhere else
      And no he doesn’t have a
      a lot of ahjumma fans I’m 19 and I’ll always support him, stop being so much of a hater and focus on your own life

  3. He has also just been announced as the new brand ambassador of Globe, one of the biggest telecom companies in my country 😍
    He’s back and I’m so happy for him.
    Congrats Sun Ho!

  4. I figured even if he never acted in another drama again (which I think he will) that he would return to theatre. It’s what he really seemed to love, and he had a devoted following even before he started on television. As far as scandals go, his was one that I don’t feel like is any of my business.

      Because he’s a phony. And his dumb stans like the one below are still buying into the whole β€˜good boy’ sham. It still cracks me up how they swore heaven and earth that he was a virgin to counter his ex’s allegations. πŸ˜‚ And also said β€˜the poor guy’ didn’t want fame and just wanted to act. As if he didn’t leave his nuguworld of theatre to do dramas because he wanted fame. Let’s wait till he tries to leave his agency. Then they’ll release all the tea they’ve buried for him. And it’s the same Dispatch they’ll use to destroy him. Oh boy, his cult wouldn’t be able to handle it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    INB4 the miserable KSH ha*ters whining about β€œrabid fans” when they’re the ones who are more intense with their hate for a celebrity who doesn’t know they exist πŸ˜‚
    The one above me is even stealing a username lmao
    Anyways, come back stronger KSH! What the ha*ters say will literally not affect his career whatsoever so they all can whine and cry all they want, nothing will change and I’ll just read their whiny-ass comments while sipping tea, lol rabid ha*ters are so entertaining 😎

    • And there she is! LOL. I was wondering how long it would take until you showed up. The wimp who claims she’s not his fan but ALWAYS comments angry essays under ALL his posts to defend him like she’s on his payroll. Right back atcha, kid. He doesn’t know YOU exist either. He doesn’t care about you. And he won’t bone you out of gratitude for defending him like you’re hoping. So keep jerking yourself off to his pictures like the pathetic idiot you are. That’s the closest you’ll ever get to him anyway. 😘

  6. KSH article comment section is always toxic af, everyone’s so extreme in their worship or hate of this dude lol
    as for me, I’m just happy that him, SYJ, and KJH are coming back. they’re all talented and I’ve enjoyed their performances even though I’m not an avid fan of theirs in terms of not really following their careers closely. celebrities shouldn’t be cancelled because of having less than perfect personal lives.
    but as for yoochun, park shi hoo, seungri, jung joon hyung or whatever his name is, and the likes, they all can rot in hell for all I care lol

    • Also, if I recall correctly, SYJ’s recent movie did well, so really curious on how sad tropics will do domestically.

  7. Just going through the comments section makes me feel people can be so sick when it comes to gossip and making judgements as if they are saints. His personal life is non of your fucking business. He is a brilliant actor and has every right to act.A jealous bitch who couldn’t use him tried to ruin him just like any other jealous ex. But at the end truth prevails

  8. Exactly. Glad that the Korea Times reported evidence proves that the ex allegations are false and cheers for the touching the void play. Been a fan of Seon Ho way before start up, so happy, the truth prevails.
