[HanCinema’s News] Kim Seon-ho Donates $50,000 to Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation @ HanCinema

On February 14th Salt Entertainment announced that Kim Seon-ho, who is represented by the agency, donated fifty thousand dollars to charity last December, specifically the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation. The donation appears to be a recurring one- Kim Seon-ho also donated one hundred thousand dollars to the Korea Childhood Leukemia Foundation last January.


The decrease in amount appears to have been due to the damage incurred to Kim Seon-ho‘s career last October. At that time, an accusation that Kim Seon-ho Bullied an ex-girlfriend into having an abortion caused him to be removed from several projects. Kim Seon-ho apologized for his actions, and the ex-girlfriend accepted his apology.

Kim Seon-ho is expected to make a comeback with the upcoming film “Sad Tropics” this year. “Sad Tropics” comes from director Park Hoon-jung whose last project was the Netflix noir film “Night in Paradise” last year. Kim Seon-ho was previously the lead in last summer’s popular romance drama “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” which aired worldwide on Netflix.
