South Korean actor Kim Seon-ho posted an apology letter on Instagram breaking his silence on social media since the abortion controversy last year.

On May 7, the Hometown Cha-Cha star posted a photo of nature with a backdrop of a blue sky, pinkish clouds and a pale moon.

Accompanying the post were the following words:

“I’m sorry for my lack thereof to put you through a hard time. Thank you for celebrating my birthday this year too much. I will be an actor who will be able to repay your support,” wrote Kim in a letter translated from Korean to English on Instagram.

Kim’s fans donated 10 million won ($7,900) to charity organization Community Chest of Korea on May 8, in honour of his birthday celebration.

The post has so far garnered more than two million likes and counting. Kim’s last post was in October, the same month the 35-year-old actor apologized over the abortion rumours that claimed he forced his ex-girlfriend into having an abortion.

The whole dispute started when a netizen wrote in an online community that an actor had forced her to terminate her pregnancy when they were still dating. In her post she referred to the actor as “Actor K” giving rise to speculation that “Actor K” was Kim.

He addressed the issue admitting that the netizen was his ex-girlfriend.

“I was seeing her with good emotions. In that process, I hurt her due to my carelessness and inconsiderate actions,” he said.

“I apologize to all those who trusted and supported me until the end,” wrote Kim.

He left the South Korean variety show 2 Days & 1 Night shortly after.

In November last year it was announced that Kim would star in Sad Tropics, his first project since the entire incident. Sad Tropics revolves around a Filipino-Korean aspiring boxer who goes to South Korea to look for his father who abandoned him.

The movie will be directed by Park Hoon-jung and possibly starring actress Go Ara.

Kim currently has over eight million followers on Instagram and has starred in South Korean favourites like Start Up and 100 Days, My Prince. He made his debut as a theater actor in the comedy New Boeing Boeing.
