Another concern has been raised as more details surrounding the affair between film director Hong Sang Soo and actress Kim Min Hee has been revealed regarding the director’s daughter.
According to Woman Sense on June 22nd, Hong Sang Soo has allegedly cut off all financial support for his college-age daughter, meaning she is no longer getting financed for her education. Due to the affair going public, it was further said that Kim Min Mee had lost CF deals and thus the money, which was originally for the director daughter’s education, is now being used to support the actress.
However, even despite this, his wife has been quoted saying, “I love him, and he loved me. Everyone around us is aware of how family-oriented he is. I still have hope. My husband is going to come back to us,” after revealing to the media she will never get a divorce.
Rumors of Kim Min Hee and Hong Sang Soo’s affair began to spread rapidly in the film industry near the end of 2015, however, was never picked up by the media until it was made public just recently. According to reports, the director left his family for the actress, informing both his wife, whom he’s been married to since 1985, and daughter about his affair last September. With her agency finding out about the affair, they chose not to renew her contract and she has been flying solo ever since.
