Kim Seon-ho Might Play a Half-Filipino in an Upcoming Film

Kim Seon-ho – forever our “Good Boy” – is on a roll! He’s currently gracing our Netflix screens every weekend in the über nakakakilig Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha alongside Shin Min-a, but it seems he is also in talks to star in his very first movie! SALT Entertainment has stated that Seon-ho is positively reviewing the casting offer. Wouldn’t you love to see him in a film? I know I would!

As if that wasn’t enough, the role he is allegedly considering is a half-Filipino! We’ve heard him speak a bit of Russian in the first episode of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha; is Filipino next? My hearttttt!

Sad Tropics is said to revolve around a man with a Korean father and Filipino mother, who dreams of becoming a boxer. He then goes to Korea to look for his father who abandoned him, but meets bad guys and finds himself in different situations.

Fingers crossed he takes the role!
