Director Hong Sang Soo (56), who caused an uproar in the film industry after his affair with actress Kim Min Hee came to light this past June, has filed for divorce arbitration with his wife of 31 years.

According to reports, Hong Sang Soo filed for divorce arbitration with his wife Mrs. Jo on November 9 at the Seoul Family Court. Divorce Arbitration is a process in which a husband and wife decide to negotiate the terms of a divorce, with an arbitrator who will act as a neutral, 3rd party when it comes to non-negotiable decisions. 


Supposedly, Director Hong Sang Soo has already made several attempts to file for divorce by mutual consent with his wife, but Mrs. Jo continued to refuse, which led to a divorce arbitration. 


One lawyer noted that if Hong Sang Soo admits to his affair with Kim Min Hee, he becomes "a husband and and spouse with a liability toward his family, and may logically lose his right to request for a divorce. How the court determines whether or not Mrs. Jo had a part in the resulted affair, or whether or not Hong Sang Soo is responsible for a marriage failure, will be very important."

    Just to get to the jist of Korean divorce law; are you telling me that Korean courts can force a person to STAY MARRIED? If the guy admitted adultery, which he did... the wife would get a very sizable alimony at the end, but forcing him to stay seems like a lose-lose scenario. Who's to say he won't find another girl to cheat on her... Its obvious he no longer has feelings for her so why make him stay. Take his money and find someone who will appreciate you.

    Adultery doesn't guarantee anything for the wife in a Korean court.

    Ok ! I agree that director Hong sang soo is not the only horny man craving for young pussies, before him we have seen the pervert Tony Ahn who tear up the virginity of innocent Hyeri, or the big dick Choiza who deflowered Sulli, but Kim Min Hee is an adult and I was expecting from her more maturity !! She needs to understand that her relationship with this old man is not going to last and she is destroying a family. She is doing something wrong for her career and the life of this old dud, the Korean society will never forgive her for what she has done !

    This comment would have been incomplete without the deflowering and virginity talk, because it was the first time with these innocent girls !

    I would like your comment more without the first part when you dragged others into the topic but rather than that its true she ruined herself and people will look at her as a mistress and a whore

    KIM is Age 34 to HONG's Age 56. So, Ms. KIM is was likely NOT 'sexually inexperienced' when she entered into this relationship with HONG.

    The way you speak is just gross. That is what I am just astonished about. I am not going to make a comment wether I side with anybody in this article. you are the kind of person that is ignorant and don't listen to others opinions unless they side with you. My point was to talk about your language. I was shocked and noticed that you speak like that a lot in other comment sections. So....I guess it's pointless to tell you this. But for that reason I say it's you, that is gross. BYE THEN!

    Yes, I did figure that you *personally* knew their ages. However, the AKP here only lists HONG's age, and *not* Ms. KIM's age. So, that was why I did list it in my comment. Others do WONDER about the ages, but do not want to be 'bothered' trying to figure it out. It is NOT like Ms. KIM is Age 20. Also, the legal age of SEXUAL CONSENT in S.KOREA is AGE 13 too (as it is in JAPAN too). Although, a S.KOREAN female can NOT participate in a PORNO MOVIE until Age 18. The EARNING MONEY aspect of a PORNO Movie is what makes it illegal until Age 18.

    What do they mean if he admits to his affair? Has he not already confessed to it? For her own sake she should leave him but i can understand why she hasn't. Why give that bastard the satisfaction? Why give that homewrecking bitch the satisfaction? Pffft.

    Talk about being one sided. Being force to be with someone under law should not be a thing. People deserve to be happy after all we are all selfish individuals to start with. Forcing him to stay is being selfish as well. In the end she will only suffer longer if she lets him stay.

    I think they meant that if he admits it in court.

    His wife is obviously not happy. She has personal life plastered all over the news.

    I clearly said she should leave him for her own sake.
