Did you notice? Kim Seon Ho (김선호) was recently spotted making a surprise “cameo appearance” in the new SBS romance TV series “Now, We Are Breaking Up” (지금, 헤어지는 중입니다) – and netizens are going cray-cray about it.
If you’ve been keeping up with the actor’s happenings for the past few months, you’re probably aware about the scandal surrounding him and his former lover, Choi Young Ah. Although the controversy has died down after several revelations about the controversy came to light, the actor is still staying under the radar for now.
During the sixth episode of the aforementioned K-drama, EXO member Sehun (who plays the character Hwang Chi Hyung) made his appearance at the fictional fashion company The One’s office. However, a few eagle-eyed viewers out there were quick to notice an image of Seon Ho being displayed in the background, although it was completely blurred on the screen.
For those who are wondering, the image in question featuring the “Start-Up” star was taken during a photo shoot for the cover spread of Noblesse Men magazine. And to quote Korean entertainment portal KBIZoom, it’s possible that the filming crew of “Now, We Are Breaking Up” had “borrowed” the photo featuring Seon Ho for decoration purposes.
Many fans were naturally ecstatic by Seon Ho’s surprise “appearance”, despite the fact that it has little to no significance in the drama. In addition, some people also assumed that SBS may have worked together with the 35-year-old actor at that time, considering that the drama finished its filming process way before the nasty allegations against him broke out.
On top of that, others also speculated that he will be appearing alongside the main actress Song Hye Kyo in the upcoming episodes. Here are some of the highlighted comments left by the netizens:
- “Jang Ki Yong enlisted at the end of August. So, this scene must have been filmed in either July or August. At that time, Kim Seon Ho had not been caught in the scandal. Maybe he did make a cameo appearance in this drama, playing a famous star, so that’s why his photo was displayed in the office like that.”
- “Putting Kim Seon Ho’s poster aside, (I think) Sehun’s image is exactly the same as Seon Ho in ‘Start-Up’.”
- “If Kim Seon Ho really appeared (in ‘Now We Are Breaking Up”), I will love SBS for life.”
So far, the K-drama heartthrob is set to make his comeback in the script reading for his debut film “Sad Tropics”. More on that here.
