Filmmaker Hong Sang-soo is to file for divorce against his wife, a local media outlet reported Monday.

According to the report, Hong has decided to sue for divorce after failing to come to a settlement with his wife, who has so far refused any agreement.

Citing personnel in the film industry close to Hong, the report said Hong is thinking about marrying actress Kim Min-hee. “A divorce is unavoidable. Hong regrets that he has to go through with a suit,” the source said.

Hong has dated Kim, who is not married, for around three years. Kim has starred in numerous films made by the award-winning director, including “Claire’s Camera” and “Hotel by the River.”

The two publically admitted to their relationship at a media event held last year for their film “On the Beach at Night Alone.“
