Song Seon-mi was on hand to provide her insights about the filming process, confirming that she had a strong emotional reaction to the movie's most iconic scene of her and her co-star Kim Min-hee in front of a huge expanse of beautiful snow.
Son Seong-mi also described the film's odd costume design process. All the clothing in the film was owned by the actors and actresses. They had to show it to Hong Sang-soo for approval, and when it became necessary to change their wardrobes, they had to show a different set of personal clothes to Hong Sang-soo for approval again.
Though "Hotel by the River" is showing at the Busan International Film Festival this year it was filmed in 2018 and released in South Korea domestically back in March. Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee were absent from the guest visit.
