The report about director Hong Sang-soo and actress Kim Min-hee’s breakup turned out to be a rumor. Several sources from the movie industry claim the couple is still dating.

On March 9, it was reported that Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee broke up a month ago. This news broke out approximately a year after the couple admitted their relationship.

However, several sources from the movie industry claim that this is not true. People witnessed the couple on a date, followed by pictures of them shopping together. Despite cutting off communication with the world, the couple is still enjoying their lives just like everyone else around them.

The breakup rumor arose when Hong Sang-soo was spotted alone at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival. The movie ‘Grass,’ a 5th collaboration of Hong and Kim was invited for the forum section of the festival. It is assumed that since the movie was not nominated for an award, Hong Sang-soo decided to show up alone. Indeed, the festival does put a spotlight on the director more than the actors.

Meanwhile, Hong Sang-soo is still in the middle of divorce trial with his wife.
