MC Choi Yeo Jin relayed her strong opinion on the scandal, calling out Director Hong Sang Soo with, "I don't think Hong Sang Soo is able to differentiate reality from movies. He's self-centered."
The 'I Heard a Rumor Show' panel summed up the scandal that has blown up in the media, mentioning that Hong Sang Soo had taken it upon himself to leave his family and sever communication with them altogether. Hong Sang Soo's family was forced to ask around for Kim Min Hee's contact info just to get in touch with him. When Hong Sang Soo's wife allegedly visited Kim Min Hee last October to confront her husband, Kim Min Hee reportedly, brazenly told the wife, "You should have taken better care of your husband."
The female guests on 'I Heard a Rumor Show' declared in unison, "My pride would have been hurt." Choi Yeo Jin in particular flared up, replying, "You think I would have just stood there? I would murder [Kim Min Hee]." Stephanie chimed in, "I would have blown my lid."
Kwak Jung Eun said, "It's the kind of scenario you'd see in a third-rate film. I don't know what we should believe. Because the back and forth between [the parties involved] are so typical. Did they really say those things?"
A reporter who was present on the show said, "Journalists can't report on every little bits of a story. You can't believe everything [that is reported] but at the same time, you definitely can't say that it's false." Kim Ji Min added, "All Kim Min Hee has to do is explain herself but since she doesn't, all these speculations keep bubbling up."
Stephanie also said, "If I were in the daughter's shoes, I would request my mother to divorce my father. I would wish my mother would be loved, not abandoned, and find happiness." Kwak Jung Eun relayed that she would seek vendetta using the law, saying, "If the person doesn't need me anymore then I will divorce him. Though the prohibitions on adultery is gone, the civil suit part still remains so I would suck him dry [of his possessions]."
Choi Yeo Jin and Kim Ji Min were more or less on the same boat as Kwak Jung Eun, revealing that they would divorce the man and certainly not go easy on him.
