Director Hong Sang-soo and actress Kim Min-hee mentioned their scandal in a French paper.

One of France's 3 major papers had an interview with Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee who are in Cannes with the movies "Claire's Camera" and "The Day After - 2017".

The paper introduced the two in the first sentence saying, "They disregarded the scandal by making the affair they have with each other official". The paper focused more on their relationship than the movies.

Hong Sang-soo was asked, "Your life and the movie are alike in many ways. However, why do you claim that the movie is not a biography?" and he answered, "I don't pick an element from my life to make a movie. I use the details that come from my heart to refine and combine them to make a story. This movie is made up of details and a squiggly line goes through the movie".
