[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee continue to court controversy by declaring their love at a press conference

2017/03/13 | 1672 views | Permalink

The controversy train rolls on as Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee publicly declare that they're in a relationship at a press conference for their latest movie, "On the Beach at Night Alone".

The declaration came in response to a reporter asking them to clarify their relationship. Hong Sang-soo replied that they were in love, and sincere about their feelings.

Publicity for the movie has taken a back seat to the scandal swirling around Kim Min-hee and the still married Hong Sang-soo, whose wife has allegedly refused to give him a divorce. Last month, at the Berlin International Film Festival, where Kim Min-hee won an award for best actress for "The Handmaiden", the couple was again the focus of much attention and judgement for being publicly affectionate with each other.

The latest declaration set off a fresh round of condemnation from Korean netizens, who alternately criticize Hong Sang-soo for abandoning his wife, and Kim Min-hee for stealing him away. Meanwhile, there doesn't seem to be any news on whether "On the Beach at Night Alone" is any good.
