During Channel A's 'Heard It Through the Grapevine', the panel talked about the actress and director's adultery, as well as their recent movie "On the Beach at Night Alone". It has been rumored that the line Kim Min Hee says ("I don't look at men's faces anymore. It's all nothing. Good looking men act the way you'd expect them to act with that face. I've dated many) is a line Hong Sang Soo had directed at Kim Min Hee's past good looking boyfriends.
Hong Suk Chun commented sharply, "That's so petty and sad. I'm not going to be ever in his movies [so I can say this]. If this is true, it's so petty. What a petty revenge."
When one of the reported on the show commented on the actress' success and said, "I think she is a woman who has achieved everything in both love and career. But on the other hand, I also think that there is someone who is hurting a lot seeing all this", Hong Suk Chun again commented, "At that age when she's done all that, her only choices are to maintain it or to fall down."
