On June 21, DC Inside’s gallery for Kim Min Hee released an announcement regarding the funds that fans gathered in order to purchase a present for the actress. Previously, fans had accumulated around 5 million won (approximately $4,300).
After reports concerning her relationship with Hong Sang Soo came out, some fans have protested and requested a refund.
The official announcement states, “All schedules will be temporarily halted. Refunds and other discussions will be discussed when the gallery comes to a lull.”
It continues, “The sudden situation must be disconcerting, but please wait a little.”
In addition to requests for refunds, the fansite is currently flooded with comments criticising the affair between Kim Min Hee and Hong Sang Soo. Some criticisms include the director not providing financial support for his daughter’s study abroad fees due to providing financial support for Kim Min Hee.
