5 Korean Actors Who Retired Due to Stumbling Scandal

Through a previous article, we have informed that a rising Korean actor, Kim Seon Ho, admitted that he forced his ex-girlfriend to have an abortion in the past.

As a result, Seon Ho’s career is currently under threat. It is possible that if the case gets bigger it will affect the actor’s career. Even worse, Seon Ho’s career will be over.

Before Kim Seon Ho, at least there were several Korean role actors who were forced to retire or their careers faded after being hit by a scandal. Who are they? Dafunda will present it specifically in this article.

The case of Kim Hyun Joong is practically similar to that of Kim Seon Ho. He is in a secret relationship with one of the women who cannot be named. Hyun Joong’s name as an actor was really famous at that time.

In 2012, this scandal became public when his ex, who has a child from a relationship, reported him on charges of forced abortion. Kim Hyun Joong accused his ex trying to bring down his career at that time.


a series of tests and also DNA tests, it was finally known if the child was really the biological child of the actor. A series of insults were received by Hyun Joong after the news went up.

Currently, his career as an actor is still running. But often the projects he starred in were boycotted by fans and Koreans alike. So that his name will never appear again in other big dramas.

Between 2016 and 2017, Park Yoochun received various reports from several women accusing him of sexually assaulting them. Not much information is circulating because Yoochun is also facing other cases.

The police did not sentence the former TVXQ member. They decided that because it was difficult to prove the existence of violence. Instead, two whistleblowers were sentenced to two years in prison on false charges.

3. Joon Joon Young

The scandal of the 27-year-old actor was revealed when he was starring in the drama River

Where The Moon Rises earlier this year.

It is known that the life history of the South Korean-born actor is very bad. In the past, he bullied his classmates and sexually assaulted several women.

There has been no recent news from the actor’s case. But his career can be said to have ended due to the scandal and he lost his lead role in the drama River Where The Moon Rises.

That’s a line of Korean actors who were forced to retire after being involved in a scandal, either sexual harassment or his past life. We hope that an incident like this will not happen again in the future.
