The messy pending divorce case of Korean director Hong Sang Soo and his estranged wife took another step in the court of public opinion as his wife has given her first onscreen interview to MBC. When asked about how she is proceeding after Hong Sang Soo’s side attempted for the third time to serve the divorce petition on her, she replied that she had nothing to say on that. Hong Sang Soo’s wife believes that her husband will still come back to her, explaining that she is not considering divorce and believes her husband to be the kind of man that will return to her. She called out Kim Min Hee as putting her through hell, claiming that she had a loving relationship with her husband until he met Kim Min Hee, and now he looks at Kim Min Hee with loving eyes like a man in love for the first time. The wife says she will wait until her husband returns to her.
Kim Min Hee has reportedly lost all her clothing endorsement deals since the fall out of her affair with Hong Sang Soo. South Korea still remains a socially and morally conservative country, and even if Hong Sang Soo is for all intents and purposes legally separated from his wife and pursuing divorce he is still not divorced yet and the public gallivanting around with Kim Min Hee is certainly going to rub people the wrong way.
