Actress Kim Min Hee has been fined by a cosmetics company in light of her scandal with director Hong Sang Soo.
Cosmetics company “A” signed Kim Min Hee as a spokesmodel last year, but approximately six months into the one-year contract, news broke of Kim Min Hee’s affair with Hong Sang Soo.
The cosmetics company has demanded that Kim Min Hee pay a penalty for breach of contract, since the company was unable to release its advertisements featuring Kim Min Hee out of concern for the company’s image. A is asking Kim Min Hee to compensate the company for damages caused by the marketing setback.
“We are discussing the penalty fee with Kim Min Hee’s side right now,” A reveals, denying reports that Kim Min Hee has already paid the fee.
