The actress says Kim slapped her and forced her to shoot a sex scene that was not in the script while working on Kim’s 2013 film “Moebius.”
She eventually quit, and Lee Eun-woo replaced her in the female lead role.

Kim’s representative said that while it is true that the director struck the actress across the face, it had been part of coaching a scene. “We never forced a sex scene that wasn’t in the scenario,” the representative added.
“Moebius” was screened at the 70th Venice International Film Festival.
The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office is investigating the case.
