It seems like the dream is over for Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki, also known as the “Song-Song couple”. On Thursday (June 26), Joong-ki’s attonery Park Jae-hyun gave a statement to the press, announcing that the actor has filed for divorce on June 25.
Joong Ki, 33, who is currently starring in the Netflix K-drama series Arthdal Chronicles, gave a statement through his agency Blossom Entertainment, saying: “Rather than criticizing one another and arguing over who is to blame, both of us hope that the divorce process can be wrapped up smoothly. I ask for your understanding that it is difficult to go into details of my personal life. I will try to recover from the wounds and do my best to repay you through good productions as an actor.”
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old actress revealed via her agency that the reason for the divorce is due to “differences in personality”. “Because the two were unable to overcome their differences, they were forced to come to this decision,” her agency states.
Rumours of a divorce started in February this year, when Hye Kyo was spotted not wearing her wedding ring at the airport. The couple first met on the set of their hit TV series Descendants Of The Sun in 2015 and got married in Seoul in October 2017.
