Mrs. Hong and acquaintances let it all out in an interview with Dispatch, revealing details of her husband and Kim Min Hee's affair as well as her own relationship with the director. The director and his same-aged wife originally met during their studies in America while he attended California College of the Arts, and she, a US citizen, attended UC Berkeley. The married couple have one college-aged daughter, but reportedly, they often said they had two kids, considering their pet dog of 13 years as a son.

According to Dispatch, Mrs. Hong knew when she saw her husband's film 'Right Now, Wrong Then', starring Kim Min Hee, that the story contained his feelings for the actress. However, she's said to have suppressed her suspicions. As previously revealed, she is said to have been devastated when Hong Sang Soo eventually moved out of their home together.

Dispatch revealed Mrs. Hong stated, "We've lived together for 30 years. We were a married couple that everyone envied. Director Hong is a family man. He was caring... I respected him as a director and loved him as a husband." Hong Sang Soo reportedly confessed to his daughter that he was involved with another woman last September and blatantly told his wife, "I want to live with someone else. You date other men too," during the same period. When Mrs. Hong and their daughter tried to hold him back, he reportedly stated he was in love with someone else and wanted to create a family with her instead. It's said Mrs. Hong was also responsible for caring after Director Hong's late mother, who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease until her death. 

When Mrs. Hong confronted Kim Min Hee about the affair, the actress reportedly replied, "That's why you should've managed your husband better." When the actress' mother approached the confrontation, Kim Min Hee is said to have told her not to listen to Mrs. Hong, calling her crazy. However, her mother is said to have been aware of the affair, telling Mrs. Hong, "I'll convince my daughter and Director Hong. I'll return him to your family."

In a recent interview with Star News, Mrs. Hong stated, "I will never divorce him. I'm going to wait for him until I die. I still love my husband, and he loved me too. Everyone around us knows how family-oriented my husband is. I'm being hopeful. My husband will return to me."

It's getting uglier than a K-drama.

I think that people should listen to the other side

kpoptai jpnAyelor Friday, December 2, 2016

The side of the cheating husband or the lurid mistress? They have nothing moraly or intellectually smart they could say to defend themselves. I hope the worst for them. Karma will come for them

Thank God, I am living in France, in my country, if you get married and don't love your husband or wife anymore you have the right to leave, and everybody would respect your decision. I know it would takes time for emerging and third world to reach this level of civilisation... I know now that developped countries are not only rich in materials but we have also a higher degree of freedom, understanding, and living...

What a eurocentric comment. Economic stability or how "developed" a country is doesn't explain for all cultural differences in values or beliefs. Korea is not barbaric or savage, they have different values than France and France is not the pinnacle of moral virtue or excellence. Consider that France wants to ban burkinis... so much for that "higher degree of freedom, understanding and living"... as long as it's heavily controlled under your perfect French moral gaze? /vomit

I feel so bad for the wife, why wait for a piece of shit until you die, let him die with that piece of garbage he likes so much, get the money and enjoy your life, make sure you get every penny out of him, leave him dry and see how fast he will run back when his piece of garbage will see he has no money.Stay strong Mrs Hong

"I want to live with someone else. You date other men too," - How can he say this to his wife of 30 years? And he doesn't have the decency to at least get a divorce to put her out of her pain and misery faster.  They both should manage themselves better. I guess to some, age doesn't matter, but if you're thinking of getting into a relationship with a married man 22 years your senior, then I think you need to reevaluate your life. I would've beaten this fool half dead too. His wife being optimistic is good, but she's wasting her time on her ungrateful husband.

What a mess.

hellokpop95 Wednesday, June 22, 2016

I think the actress bewitched the director. Bloody hell

kpoptai hellokpop95 Wednesday, June 22, 2016

yeah cause the director doesn't have enough brain to make decisions. He bewitched himself, both are pieces of shit

This is such a mess.  For anyone saying that the wife should just drop him quick..that's going to be tough for her.  30 years of stability and memories don't flush down the drain that fast.  It makes sense that she's fighting for her family to stay together.

kpoptai ajimenez Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Why? why fight for a piece of shit who throw your 30 years memory down the drain? even if he comes back it will be a HUGE stain on those 30 years, she will never trust him as she did before and always live in fear of a new Actress coming in. Get yo money and live him dry, he'll die soon either way
