Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee, "We are sincerely in love"

2017/03/13 | 943 views | Permalink | Source

Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee admitted their love affair.

The premiere of the movie "On the Beach at Night Alone" was held on March 13. Hong Sang-soo, Kim Min-hee, Seo Young-hwa, Kwon Hae-hyo, Song Seon-mi and Park Ye-joo were present. This is the first time Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee appeared in front of the press since their scandal broke out. The spotlight was on them.

"On the Beach at Night Alone" is the second movie the two have worked on and it's about an actress named Yeong-hee (Kim Min-hee) who suffers from her crush on a married movie directed named Sang-won (Moon Sung-keun).

The film was made after their scandal broke out last year and it presented Kim Min-hee with a trophy at the Berlin International Film Festival. This is a first for a Korean actress. Hong and Kim were in Berlin and they cancelled all official events. They indirectly mentioned their affair by saying they were 'close'.

The reporters asked them to talk about their scandal. Hong Sang-soo looked at Kim Min-hee, smiled and then said, "We are in love. We are sincerely in love and the reason we didn't make an official statement is because there was no need to".

Hong Sang-soo continued, "We thought hard about being public like this today. It was inconvenient for us because of the reports being made about us. Still, we thought it wasn't respectful for the domestic press if we didn't say anything. Personal is personal and this is something we have to be responsible for. We made a movie and that's what we will talk about".

Kim Min-hee also said, "We are serious about our relationship and I am prepared to take in the consequences".

Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee were reported of having an affair last year in June. Hong filed for divorce with his wife but it was declined so now it's going to trial.

"On the Beach at Night Alone" is being released on the 23rd of March.
