Could it be that love is truly dead? Back in February, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo fuelled divorce rumours when Chinese media outlets reported that their marriage had been on the rocks, after the actress was spotted without her wedding ring on various occasions. In recent news that shook the whole industry, the K-drama golden couple has finally made their split official.
Barely two years after tying the knot with Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Hye Kyo in October 2017, Song Joong Ki announced that he has officially filed for divorce on 26 June (Wednesday). The actor expressed his stance in a full statement released through his agency, Blossom Entertainment:
“Hello. This is Song Joong Ki. First, I’d like to apologise 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.
Following Song Joong Ki’s announcement, the actress went ahead with her own statement through her agency as well. According to a representative, they cited “differences in personalities” as the main reason for their divorce. The agency continued, “As 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. Please refrain from making scandalous posts and speculative comments.”
Even though Song-Song couple has come to an end, we wish both Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo all the best!
