Through this broadcast, Hong's wife clarified some of the rumors that had circulated in the media regarding the scandal.
The wife said stated on 'Real Story Eye,' "Kim Min Hee never said to only look after her until her pregnancy. But in interviews, it was made to appear as though I said that. How could they write such a thing. Do people find it believable?"
Hong's wife further stated that the messages she exchanged with Kim Min Hee's family were portrayed and edited in a malicious manner. She said, "After I read the story, I thought, 'They're writing a novel.' I feel like I'm dying."
The wife also added, "I didn't say anything but all these exclusive interviews kept popping up everywhere. It's as if I went around blabbering my personal business. Because it seems like I met all these reporters and sat down for interviews, the public is so scornful of me."
On the articles which claimed that Kim Min Hee and Hong Sang Soo got married secretly in the United States, Hong's wife said, "We don't have green cards. It's been twenty years since we gave [our rights to permanent residence benefits] up. My husband can't obtain a green card again. I don't plan to ever divorce him."
