Soong Joong Ki and Song Hye Ko, known to Filipino fans as the ‘Song-Song’ couple from hit Korean drama “Descendants of the Sun”, are headed for a divorce.
A report from South Korean website Soompi this Thursday revealed that Joong Ki has filed for legal separation from his wife after two years of marriage, as confirmed by his lawyer, Attorney Park Jae Hyun.
“Our law firm filed for divorce on behalf of Song Joong Ki at the Seoul Family Court on June 26,” he told.
In his statement, Joong Ki said that he hopes to settle with Hye Kyo in peaceful terms. He also apologized to their fans, stating, “Hello. This is Song Joong Ki. First, I’d like to apologize for delivering this unfortunate news to the many fans who love and care for me. I have begun the process of filing for divorce from Song Hye Kyo.”
“Rather than denouncing one another and arguing over who is to blame, I hope that the divorce process can be wrapped up amicably. I ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that it is difficult to discuss the details of my personal life, and I will recover from my current wounds and do my utmost as an actor to repay you through great productions in the future. Thank you,” he added.
Shortly after, Hye Kyo’s agency United Artists Agency (UAA) Korea confirmed the news by releasing a statement on behalf of the actress.
They told, “We find it unfortunate that we are greeting you with unhappy news. After careful consideration, actress Song Hye Kyo and her husband are taking the first steps toward a divorce.
“The reason [for the divorce] is differences in personality and because the two were unable to overcome their differences, they were forced to come to this decision. We respectfully ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that we cannot confirm any further details out of respect for the two actors’ personal lives. Additionally, we urge you to refrain from making scandalous posts and speculative comments.
Joong Ki and Hye Kyo were married on October 31, 2017.
