South Korean celebrities Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo get a divorce after more than one and a half years of marriage.
Song Joong Ki said through his agency that they are hoping to settle divorce proceedings without any issues.
“I have decided to pursue a divorce suit against Ms. Song Hye Kyo and to not to go in depth about the mistakes each of us made,” said Mr. Song. “Rather than blaming and criticizing each other, I wish to end the marriage in an amicable matter.”
Song Hye Kyo’s agency also stated, “The reason for the divorce is differences in personality, and as the two were unable to overcome their differences, they were forced to come to this decision. We cannot reveal the details in question out of respect for our client’s personal life.”
When asked why the couple had not opted for a collaborative divorce if they were in agreement, Mr. Song’s lawyer responded, “The reason that they are not proceeding with an uncontested divorce is because there was a slight difference of opinion about the details of their divorce.”
The Song Song A-list celebs were the co-stars of the 2016 hit television melodrama, “Descendants of the Sun,” which represents an army captain who fell in love with a surgeon in a fictional war-torn nation. The drama catapulted both actors to fame and their fairytale marriage is currently wrapping up.
Last February, Chinese media outlets cited that the two actors may not be getting along well as Song Hye Kyo was spotted not wearing her wedding ring on various occasions, and she had deleted some photos of Song Joong Ki on her social medial account.
The couple’s breakup has made their fans mourn because they were dubbed as the “perfect couple.”
“It’s the end of ‘once’ a beautiful love story, but I will still remain their fan,” said a user online.
Meanwhile, a variety of rumors have been spreading about the reason for the couple’s divorce. Park Bo Gum, who recently starred in the drama with Song Hye Kyo, is unexpectedly mentioned in the rumor. Park Bo Gum’s agency, Blossom Entertainment, released a statement condemning the allegations as false, and that legal action would be taken against the source of rumor.
The agency said, “It is offensive that Park’s name is mentioned in the divorce. The rumors about Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo are absolutely not true.”
Both Park and Song Joong Ki are represented by Blossom Entertainment. The two are reportedly close friends and Park attended Song Joong Ki’s wedding in 2017. The Song Song couple’s wedding was kept private and garnered a high level of interest around the wedding venue.
