Looks like she’s nonetheless relationship the married movie director.

News reviews on the time revealed that Hong, a married man, and Kim had been collectively since 2015—after Kim “pursued” Hong and Hong “left his wife and daughter behind” to be with Kim.
By March 2017, Hong and Kim admitted and “went public” with their adulterous relationship. Kim—whose rising profession with The Handmaiden obtained demolished by the connection—has been appearing in Hong’s movies since, however the two have typically fallen off the radar of mainstream media.
In 2019, Hong was reported to have filed for divorce to legalize his relationship with Kim.

One of Kim’s most up-to-date official appearances was in Berlin on the 2022 Berlin International Film Festival.
After matching in black outfits on the purple carpet, Hong invited Kim to present an acceptance speech when his 2022 work, The Novelist’s Film, gained the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.
Then, in late November, an nameless Korean school scholar posted an image of the couple after recognizing them on campus at Konkuk University, the place Hong teaches movie.
A sophomore on the college, the coed claimed, “Kim and Hong came out of Hong’s office together.”
I noticed them on campus this May. (My buddy took the photographs, however I can delete them in the event that they’re problematic.) Professor Hong’s workplace is on the second ground of the movie division constructing. And the executive workplace can be on the second ground, so I’m there so much. This day, I noticed the 2 of them come out of the professor’s workplace collectively. I used to be stunned to catch each of them there.
According to the sighting, Hong was hostile towards the buddy who acknowledged the couple and took the photographs.
I froze in time as a result of I used to be caught off guard. Kim Min Hee used the steps to go down. My buddy obtained a bit enthusiastic about the entire thing. Then, the professor observed us and glared at us as he adopted her. We weren’t enthusiastic about him in any respect, although. We have been completely happy to see Kim Min Hee.
The scholar added Kim was driving Hong round.
Anyway, the 2 of them left via the foyer and took off of their automotive. Kim Min Hee was carrying an all black outfit that appeared superb. What baffled me, although, is that Kim Min Hee was the one driving. I heard that senior residents are inspired to surrender their driver licenses. Is Hong Sang Soo that outdated? After this, I noticed them on campus from far-off yet one more time. I haven’t seen Kim Min Hee since.
I see Professor Hong on a regular basis, although. I see him not less than twice or 3 times per week. He teaches right here, so it is sensible. From what I’ve heard, Professor Hong is retiring this 12 months. I don’t know if I must be completely happy about that or not…
Neither Hong Sang Soo nor Kim Min Hee have recognized schedules in Korea as of now.
