Kim Seon Ho talked about how he managed to stay humble after his success from the drama Start-Up.
The actor, who skyrocketed to fame after his portrayal of the character Han Ji Pyeong in the tvN drama, is the latest celebrity to grace the cover of Elle Korea.
According to a report by All Kpop, Kim Seon Ho admitted that he enjoyed his new status as a rising star. However, he said he got worried that he might start to see things differently if he got too excited by the new opportunities.
He expressed fear that he would become too consumed by thoughts of whether a certain project would do well when he weighs his options for his next project. This was why he came up with a simple solution to remain grounded. He said that if he received a good offer, he would do it no matter what.
Another thing that has been keeping Kim Seon Ho humble is his participation as a regular cast member of the variety show 2 Days and 1 Night. While the actor has been receiving high praise in the acting field, his co-stars are always teasing him and treating him like a regular guy.
In a recent episode, Kim Seon Ho's father was tasked to choose a cast member to go fishing with his son. However, instead of convincing him that they were the best choice, they outlined why they would be terrible companions.
They made no secret of the fact that they did not want to go on an outing with the actor during the freezing weather. Dindin, who is known on the show as one of Seon Ho's closest friends, even resorted to playfully bribing the actor's dad, so he doesn't get chosen. He recently kept his word and sent Hanwoo, or Korean premium grade beef to Seon Ho's father, Soompi reported.
It has been reported that for Kim Seon Ho's next project, he was offered the lead role in the drama Link. He was offered the role of Eun Gye Hoon, a man who suddenly begins to experience the emotions of a woman named Noh Da Hyun. The lead female role was offered to Moon Ga Young, who previously worked with Kim Seon Ho on the drama Welcome to Waikiki 2, Pink Villa reported.
Kim Seon Ho was also linked to the remake of the drama Mr. Hong where he is rumored to star opposite Hello Venus star Shin Min Ah, Soompi reported.
