Kim Seon Ho (from “Start-up” and “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”) was recently reported to star as a half-Filipino in the upcoming film “Sad Tropics.” In the movie, he will have a Korean father and a Filipino mom.
The film is about a boxer who came to Korea to find his father. The actor’s agency, SALT Entertainment, responded that they are actually reviewing the offer.
If he accepts the offer, this will also be his debut film.
UPDATE: According to a Naver article, Kim Seon Ho might not portray the role of the FIlKor boxer, but is in talks to play one of characters in the film. As there is no confirmation from SALT Entertainment, please take these reports with a grain of salt. (No pun intended.)
