What is Woody Allen's relationship with Soon Yee's children? Father? Step-father? Grandfather? Step-grandfather? Half-grandfather? All of the above? None of the above. Divorce and remarriage makes family *** difficult enough to keep track of (I understand half-siblings and step-siblings, but never really understood how it would apply to grandparents, cousins, uncles & aunts, etc); but once incest is thrown in, things get really sloppy.
IS Woody Allen's relationship with Soon Yee really incest in the first place? If so, how does that change their relation to each other? For incest in general, exactly what is it called if you have sex with your mother and it produces a child? Are you the baby's father, half-brother, brother, or what? How does it all work once incest is involved?
Also, I guess even more common, some people have kids with a first or 2nd cousin, which isn't illegal, so would your child be your son/daughter, or would it be some type of cousin? How does all this work!
Another thing: what would MIA FARROW be considered. I think she's Soon Yee's step-mother and just Woody Allen's "wife" (or is there a more specific term?), right? So, what is she to Soon Yee's children: grandmother, step-grandmother, step-mother, mother, or what? Finally, who are Soon Yee's children's four grandparents?
One last question: does anyone think Soon Yee is actually Bun Mui in disguise?

Mia Farrow is her actual (non-biological, adoptive) mother, isn't she?
No way!
Incest is sexual intercourse between individuals related in certain prohibited degrees of kinship.
Was there any kinship between Woody and Soon Yee when they got married?
(Kinship is a biological and/or familial relationship between two parties.)

Who was Woody for Soon Yee? The ex-boyfriend of her adoptive mother.

Does boyfriend-girlfriend relationship creates kinship? Perhaps an emotional type of kinship while the relationship lasts.
Had Woody married Soon Yee while Mia was still his girlfriend, he might have committed an emotional incest, something like having sex with your best friend after 20 years of sexless friendship.
But he didn't.

Right, which makes her Woody's mother in law.

Wait...now I'm even MORE confused than ever. Woody MARRIED Soon Yee?! That's sick! And wasn't he married to Farrow at the time when he impregnanted Yee? If so, that would be a form of "emotional incest" as you put it.

I don't think that Allen and Farrow were ever married.

"Boyfriend-girlfriend" makes it sound as though they went to the movies a few times. Woody Allen and Mia Farrow had a household that they shared for nearly ten years; they had children together (one biological; two adopted). The children of Mia Farrow's former marriages also lived with them.
I think that amounts to something rather different from "sexless friendship", and makes Woody Allen something other than a "best friend".

Wait...I'm still trying to piece this together. So, Mia Farrow had had adopted kids from a previous marriage. So, Farrow had NO kids of her own when she started hanging out with Woody? And Soo Yee was one of THOSE children. But, then, Mia and Woody started living together, and they adopted two more children, plus had one. So, technically Woody AND Farrow both only had one kid, but had TONS of adopted kids? Am I right?
Now, while they were all living together, Woody and Soon Yee started having sex, and eventually had kids of their own? And then they got married and Farrow broke up with Woody? Is that how it happened?

What I don't get is what were Mia Farrow's adopted children considered to Woody Allen. Were they his step-children? Were they Mia's step-children, since they were adopted and not really her own? How does that work? Once they broke up (Mia and Woody), would Soon Yee STLL be considered Woody's step-daughter?
You mixed up my context, but somehow you're right. Mia and Woody used to be more than girlfriend-boyfriend. Since they had a few children together (biological and adopted), they lived together, etc, their relationship was a common law marriage.
That makes Soon Yee, vis a vis Woody, a step daughter from a common law marriage.
