On November 8, the reports of a 55-year-old popular director being involved in an extra-marital affair with a much younger actress left netizens stunned.
Taiwanese director Tsai Yueh Hsun has been embroiled in a scandal with 27-year-old actress Sang Na after the local media outlet 8World reported about their alleged affair. According to the outlet’s source, who claims to be an industry insider, this relationship is an open secret among insiders.
Tsai married actress Hsiao Hui Yu in 2000. The couple has two sons and two daughters. But in recent years, the veteran director is said to be struggling with debt issues, and his marriage has also taken a hit. He reportedly lives separately from his wife.
According to reports, Tsai met Sang Na during the filming of the drama Seven. While Tsai was the director, she had a small role in the project. It is speculated that the relationship between the two is the reason why Tsai’s marriage is in trouble currently.
Sang Na, the 27-year-old actress, has been steadily rising in her career with appearances in hit shows like Insect Mahjong Museum (2017) and Cry Me A River of Stars (2021). Before kicking off her career, she graduated from the prestigious Central Academy of Drama.
Meanwhile, Tsai Yueh Hsun is a globally revered director, and some of his milestone projects include Metal Garden (2001), Black & White (2009), and Black & White Episode 1: The Dawn of Assault (2012).
