Actress Kim Mn Hee is reportedly dating a married film director, Hong Sang Soo

On June 20, TV Report stated that Kim Min Hee and Hong Sang Soo, who have worked together for a total of 4 movies, have been engaged in an affair since 2015. 

Hong Sang Soo was a husband of 30 years, plus a father of a daughter in college. It is reportedly said that Kim Min Hee was the first one to express interest in Hong Sang Soo, and her continuous advances of love ultimately stole his heart.

As a result, Hong Sang Soo confessed his affair to his family back in September of 2015, and has since moved out of the house. Kim Min Hee's family was evidently also aware of the situation. Her mother reportedly commented, "I hope it will come to a settlement soon." 

Currently, Kim Min Hee works self-managed with a personal manager. Her former label Forest Entertainment told news outlets, "We don't know anything." 

Neither side has responded to the reports so far. Stay tuned for updates.

Why such harsh words for the female in this triangle?  He is 20 years older than she and should have had 20 times more sense and experience.  We also do not know the status/happiness of the marriage.  It is possible he did not live much of the time in the household. It is also possible the wife was very nice; it is also possible she was difficult to live with.The Director chose to move leave for whatever reason and that is his personal right.  The actress may not want to continue to work, he is most probably rich and might have pledged to take care of/ marry her.   Do not know either the wife, the Director or the Actress but they are the only 3 people who really know the truth.  Time will tell the outcome, meanwhile it is none of our business.

Because SHE approached HIM. Knowing he is married. Whether the wife is really cruel behind the scenes is irrelevant, frankly. She cast out her bait, and the director took it. They're both basically guilty of cheating.

le_____de Sunnn Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Actually, none of us knows what really happened in the beginning or who approached whom first. Do not believe everything you read in the tabloids. All factors in a relationship or breakup of the relationship are relevant. In the pure sense of the word, they are both cheaters. Again, the behavior of the wife does have an impact in the relationship; all that glitters is not gold. Men who are happy in relationships do not leave. They may cheat, but they do not leave.

Yeah I can't agree we don't need to know what happend to judge, EXPECIALLY the Director cause if (as you said possibly) the wife was hard to live with, he 1. wouln't have spent 30 years married with her, and 2. could have and should have divorced, also the "but socially divorced is not looked nicely upon" cannot apply when he cheats cause im sure cheating is worse. To end it NO men who are happpy and suddisfied with their relatioship do not cheat on their patner, wheather they stay or not doesn't make the cheating any better or a "mistake" it's never a mistake,unless you where unconcious an then that's another story, that's rape. With the addition of cutting funding for his daughter EXPECIALLY if the alligation are true (most likely) then he deserves every hateful comment look, stare and behaviour against him. Cherry on the cake is if he his career went down the toilet due to this. Then again we live in a world were men like him come out of this things unharmed and as good as new

The "we don't know what happened" is tiresome, trifling and is a comment made by timid children. Here's what we DO know. Kim Min Hee is having an affair with a married man. Hong Sang Soo was married for 30 years, has children. Apparently his penis is the thinking apparatus on his body since an actress paid attention to him and he left his family for her. Now the public knows. They're both incredibly selfish, shallow and narcissistic human beings.

*loud applouds*

abilicious23 Tuesday, June 21, 2016

from the HOT Model'Actor Lee SooHyuk and Top Actor Jo Insung to an old married Director 20+ years your senior? sure age or physical appearance doesn't matter but what the hell being in a relationship with someone who is married? you're wasting your life gal!

monkeyz899 Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Just read an article that she told his wife "you should've managed your husband better." Wow. What a b****. Intentionally going after a married man and ruining his family's relationship is not a humane thing to do. I hardly write hateful comments on allkpop but man, I do not like Kim Min Hee based on her actions here...

alex_grey Tuesday, June 21, 2016

kim min hee, you are going to regret your choice later.... until you die

CCA Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Was she Jo In Sung's gf? I don't like her.

mmaay CCA Tuesday, June 21, 2016

yes she was

kookiexxbts Tuesday, June 21, 2016

i don't understand her seriously. She's a famous actress but she had the guts to have an affair with a married man. What has gotten into her mind, isn't she aware that if she will continue or have an affair with a married man (not just any ordinary man but a film director) she would ruin her career and her image. Dang girl!

MitchTatsuoka kookiexxbts Tuesday, June 21, 2016

That's true. What a waste.

Sunnn kookiexxbts Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Apparently she really doesn't care rofl. She even told his wife when confronted about their affair, "Well, you should've handled your husband better." What a bitchhhhh.

junsukiyoo Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Luckily, she broke up with Jo In Sung ages ago. If not, i swear i will grab her hair. lol

diktiku junsukiyoo Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Wait, what? She used to date Jo In Sung of "It's Okay, That's Love"? Thank God they broke up.

bangeryun94 diktiku Wednesday, June 22, 2016

They broke up while he was filming "It's Okay, It's Love." Everyone was whispering that it was because Jo In Sung had fallen for his leading lady who just happened to be one of Kim Min Hee's best friends. But it was Kim Min Hee who broke up with Jo In Sung for this married man.

junsukiyoo bangeryun94 Thursday, June 23, 2016

Poor Gong Hyo Jin. She took a bullet for her bf's scandal affair. Damn, Jo In Sung was so nice tho.

wewewewewewewew Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Fact of the matter is, having already prior knowledge of the director being married, she still made advances towards him which from my point of view is where the problem started. The blame might have fallen both on them, but we can never disregard the fact that she was the one who initiated first. The way I see it, due to the lack of a better term, she a bitch yo! Ain't no going around that, she seriously broke a family up. Do you know how hard is that on the party affected? yet she still did what she did! Also, I guess viagra does indeed make a difference.

le_____de wewewewewewewew Tuesday, June 21, 2016

How old are you to believe everything you read?----12?

wewewewewewewew le_____de Tuesday, June 21, 2016

I believe things that make actual sense. Even if the director made the initial action to seduce her she still fell for him despite already being a married man, if you can defend such an action, then I'll gladly concede. FYI i'm 20 years old and yeah, I think I can discern what is wrong from right, not sure about you though because I think you don't condone her actions. Is this some form of feminist view? Not saying I am not up not up for women's rights, but their is a fine line between what is feminism and socially acceptable action and if you don't get that then fuck off!

le_____de wewewewewewewew Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Printed papers often lie big time and decide upon the details to print. We really do not know the complete story here. I do not condone any of their behavior; I am just choosing not to judge her as the one who is breaking up his home. If she is guilty, she will have to reap what she has sown. I have lived long enough to acknowledge the most innocent appearing person can be the one who is actually perpetuating the problem. The Director, the actress and the wife are all adults and are certainly in a position to work out their own problems without name-calling from outside viewers who are commenting on this thread.

wewewewewewewew le_____de Wednesday, June 22, 2016

I agree that printed papers often lie, but when the surmounting articles and evidence perceive her as the one who initiated the relationship, the whole argument tends to shift to her as the problem maker. The point I'm making here is that, "she still had an affair with a married man, whether or not she initiated it or not". And by the looks of recent reports it seem that the notion of her being the initiator is likely true. I respect how you wanted to protect her given that the whole story is not yet publicly available but nevertheless my opinion and gut says she is in the wrong here.

bangeryun94 le_____de Wednesday, June 22, 2016

How old are YOU? That's exactly what happened. She has all but confirmed it. And as far as most of us are concerned the OP was being kind by not calling her who she really is --- an adulterous, home wrecking whore

pepper5552 Tuesday, June 21, 2016

fucking disgusting i dont want to even look at that old hag

enzoa Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Any judgment is impossible on this kind of stories and, after all, a judgement is not even required. The reasons behind their choices can be hundreds and span decades. Reasons may be legit or not. There could be no reason at all, because sometimes things simply happen.

Sunnn enzoa Tuesday, June 21, 2016


enzoa Sunnn Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Exactly, you can only say bullshit because you don't know a single thing about those people and their lives. Deal with it.

Sunnn enzoa Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Yeah. Bullshit.

bangeryun94 enzoa Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Here's what we do know. They're having an affair. When confronted by his wife she callously said "you should've managed your husband better." That the wife confronted her says that the wife thought she was in a healthy relationship. He walked out on his family. Her parents are apparently okay with her being an adulterous bitch. Those are things all of us know.

enzoa bangeryun94 Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Basically two facts (the extramarital relationship, he left the house), one gossip (the alleged phrase), one biased opinion (the wife statement), one groundless conclusion (because according to other gossip, her parents are not so happy with the affair and, by the way, she's a full grown woman). I don't think this narrows the enormous number of possibilities that this situation may subtend, in favor of one or the other party.

bangeryun94 enzoa Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Irrelevant. She's having an affair with him. He's left his family to be with her. 2 confirmed facts. Which leads us back around to my original statement.

enzoa bangeryun94 Thursday, June 23, 2016

Good luck with that mindset but, actually, marriage is a social superstructure that had never really prevented or limited any kind of human behavior while, in compensation, has often encouraged deceit, abuse or violence when people tend to consider it as a form of lifelong asset or achievement. What we can or want to see may not correspond to reality, thus no, for me those facts are not enough to judge anyone. Theoretically speaking, if I were HSS, assuming that I married out of love 30 years ago, that my wife is still a loving person, that I still care for my wife, that I have a huge crush on a much younger woman, that this woman is also a nice person and that she reciprocates the feelings, after having placed clear limits in advance I would have secretly and happily lived this beautiful and powerful experience for a while, then I would have returned to my place. But that's me, thinking positive and making too much assumptions. Life can be much more complicated.
