Blossom Entertainment said on Thursday that it has begun taking legal action against malicious rumors involving artist Park Bo Gum in the controversial split of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, also known as the Song-Song couple.
Following news of their divorce, speculation floated that Park may have had a role in their breakup as he recently co-starred with Hye Kyo in the Korean drama “Encounter”. But the talent agency was quick to deny the rumors, stating earlier that the reports are “ridiculous” and are “completely false”.
In their official statement reported by Korean website Soompi, Blossom Agency, who also happens to be Joong Ki’s agency, called out the spread of false rumors as harmful “not only to the artists [involved] but also their families, agency, and fans.”
They wrote, “Therefore in order to protect the basic rights of our artists, Blossom Entertainment has begun taking legal action.
“We plan to take legal measures without making agreements over former cases of harm as well as defamation later on and additional cases as well.
“In addition, we inform you that we will be taking strong action without lenience or coming to agreement in such cases of harm against our artists. We sincerely thank everyone who loves Blossom Entertainment’s artists, and we ask for your continued support and love. Thank you.”
On Thursday, Joong Ki and Hye Kyo, known to Filipinos for their roles in the hit drama ‘Descendants of the Sun’, announced their decision to file for legal separation after being together for two years, much to the shock of their fans.
In a statement, Hye Kyo’s agency cited “differences in personality” as the cause of the divorce.
Joong Ki and Hye Kyo were married on October 31, 2017.
