2016/06/21 | 18952 views | Permalink | Source

The entertainment industry is running wild due to rumors regarding Kim Min-hee and Hong Sang-soo's affair. If this rumor is true, what has Hong Sang-soo done to steal Kim Min-hee's heart, who is 22 years his junior.

Kim Min-hee's debuted through the KBS youth drama, 'School 2', 1999. Prior to her debut as an actress, she worked as a model, gracing the covers of many renowned magazines which etched her name onto the list of celebrity trendsetters for women everywhere.

Kim Min-hee's poor performances as an actress had created much controversy. However, she solidified her stance as a serious actress recently through hard work. Stories about her romantic life, as well as her work, have always been a popular topic in the entertainment industry.

"I'm liberal when I date. I'm honest with my emotions. I do not try to hide them" said Kim Min-hee during the press conference for movie 'Very Ordinary Couple', 2013.

Kim Min-hee has dated many famous stars publicly. Actor Lee Jung-jae was her first public celebrity relationship. Afterwards, Kim Min-hee confirmed her relationship with Lee Jung-jae in 2004. The two made public appearances together, displaying affection towards one another in public. At the time, Lee Jung-jae was already a superstar while Kim Min-hee was merely regarded as a popular youth star.

After dating for three years, they broke up. Kim Min-hee started dating model Lee Soo-hyuk in 2008. Lee Soo-hyuk is regularly seen in dramas today, but at the time Lee Soo-hyuk was almost a nameless actor. However, their dating drew much attention despite the status of Lee Soo-hyuk during the time. The couple's style was spread through famous online fashion publications, solidifying the couple's status as industry fashion icons.

Her third boyfriend, after she ended the two year relationship with Lee Soo-hyuk, was Jo In-sung. Due to circulating rumors regarding Jo In-sung and Song Hye-kyo's relationship, who co-starred in 'That Winter, the Wind Blows', 2013, the confirmation of Kim Min-hee and Jo In-sung's relationship was a hot issue. However, Kim Min-hee ended the one year and six month relationship in 2014.

And then another year passed. According to the report that came out, she met Hong Sang-soo in the middle of 2015. Kim Min-hee has dated the greatest stars in each industry at the height of their respective careers. It is safe to say Hong Sang-soo may be the most prominent film director in modern Korean cinema.

Kim Min-hee once mentioned that it was so much fun when she filmed the first take of Hong Sang-soo's "Right Now, Wrong Then". Later, she mentioned several times how thankful she was for Hong Sang-soo's thoughtful consideration while filming. While Kim Min-hee has previously been dating publicly and comfortably, this time things may not unfold so pleasantly.

Hong Sang-soo is a married man! Hong Sang-soo's wife expressed her current emotions in a recent interview with an entertainment news company. While his wife was going through the difficult time due to the rumors about the affair, Kim Min-hee and Hong Sang-soo were filming a new movie in February in Gangneung, Gangwon-do. Neither Kim Min-hee nor Hong Sang-soo have commented on the status of their relationship or the comments of Hong Sang-soo's wife. We are waiting for an official statement from either the actress and/or the director.
