The YouTube channel Clean Zone uploaded a video about “the shocking current status of couple Kim Min-hee & Hong Sang-soo”, sparking heated debate among netizens.
On Oct 13th, Clean Zone shared their thoughts on the two with a video titled “Shocking current status, Kim Min-hee becoming similar to Hong Sang-soo! Her decisive misjudgment”.
In the video, Clean Zone said “Kim Min-hee recently shocked the public with her rapidly aging appearance” and analyzed the cause of Kim Min-hee’s aging. First of all, they claimed, “Kim Min-hee seems to be under stress due to inner struggle (because of her affair). It must have been hard to hide like a criminal.”
They revealed, “It’ll be difficult to manage as before because she doesn’t have a lot of income. That’s why aging seems to have progressed relatively quickly.” In addition, they said that Kim Min-hee must have been physically and mentally exhausted from taking care of 63-year-old director Hong Sang-soo while working as production manager for director Hong Sang-soo. They even compared Hong Sang-soo’s appearance with his peers Lee Kyung-kyu and Cheon Ho-jin, “Interestingly, Hong Sang-soo also looks like a grandfather in his 70s even though he’s 63 years old.”
Regarding Kim Min-hee and Hong Sang-soo, Clean Zone surprised everyone by saying, “According to what I heard from a person in charge of Korean Film Council’s overseas parts, there is a view that Kim Min-hee was upgraded after dating Hong Sang-soo.” Clean Zone continued, “This official believes that Kim Min-hee is loved at overseas film festivals and swept awards ceremonies because she’s Hong Sang-soo’s muse. People don’t care much about their affair abroad.”
Some in the film industry still feel sorry for Kim Min-hee’s talent. Clean Zone went on to say, “It’s regrettable that she has the acting ability that can be recognized at overseas film festivals. What would have happened if she had been active after ‘The Handmaiden’? There are many people who regret the loss of actress Kim Min-hee.”
Netizens are arguing about this video. Netizens expressed various opinions such as “If there’s a lot of age difference, the older person will get younger and the younger one will become more mature”, “Isn’t it because there’s no reason to dress up nicely? Clean Zone’s video is too much”, “Love is not a crime”…
