Washington D.C. [USA], Aug 3: South Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-duk has been sued for allegedly assaulting an actress during the production of his controversial 2013 incest drama 'Moebius'.

Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office officials confirmed to South Korea's Yonhap news agency that a complaint against Kim had been filed.

The movie director slapped her and forced her to shoot a sex scene, an actress claimed. However, the director said that the reports contain false information, so we are confirming the actual course of events.

Kim is also accused of forcing her to perform a sex scene in a way that wasn't in the script, telling her that it was part of an acting lesson.

According to Hollywood Reporter, local media reported that a South Korean actress filed a complaint accusing the Venice Golden Lion-winning filmmaker of being violent on set.

The movie, "Moebius", a dark and violent story about an estranged family, was released in 2013 after Kim finished filming with a different actress.

He said, "It's hard to understand other allegations, but I'd like to explain the violation part".

"This is not an accurate memory because it was four years ago", Kim wrote.

"In any case, it happened as I focused on efforts to increase the film's reality as a director. and I had no personal feelings", Kim added.
