Song Joong-ki files for divorce from Song Hye-gyo

In some shocking news out of Seoul today, Song Joong-ki (Arthdal Chronicles) has announced that he’s filed for divorce from Song Hye-gyo (Boyfriend).

The pair starred in the hit drama Descended From the Sun and dated quietly before marrying in 2017. There have been rumors of marital unrest for a while now, with Song Hye-gyo getting snapped without her wedding ring just a few weeks ago but this still feels like it’s come out of the blue.

Song Joong-ki has released an official statement; shortly afterwards Song Hye-gyo’s entertainment agency, UAA Korea, released their own statement.

Song Joong-ki’s full official statement:

Hello,

Firstly, I would like to apologize, as I have some sad news for my fans and all those who care for me.

I have started divorce proceedings from Ms. Song Hye-gyo.

We hope to finalize the divorce amicably and without attacking or placing blame on each other.

I ask that you respect our privacy at this time, as it’s not possible to explain the entirety of one’s private life. I will recover from the pain of this time, and in the future I will do my best as an actor to put my best face forward and repay your kindness.

Thank you,
Song Joong-ki

 
Song Hye-gyo agency’s full official statement:

Song Hye-gyo and her husband have begun divorce proceedings after serious deliberation.

Differences in personality have become irreconcilable. We cannot elaborate any further out of respect for the privacy of the two parties.

For the sake of both actors, we ask that the media and public refrain from writing sensational or speculative articles and comments. Thank you.

Thank you, @Blazingflame for your hope that they both find strength. I, too, am praying for the same thing. I scrolled down before I wrote this and let me just repeat what they said in their statements: SJK said Respect their privacy while SHK's agency asked that we refrain from sensational or speculative actions. We can be sad for them without invading their privacy!

No kids. Based on her statement that could have been one of their 'differences in personality'.

Just this rollout feels like a media outlet had the lowdown on them and they are just trying to get out ahead of it.

I admit I always have biased for SHK because Full House is my k-drama ever. During that 12 years of k-drama hiatus I still bought Laneige just because I saw her face on a huge billboard in our local shopping mall here.
Reading comments on naver translated by netizenbuzz really makes me sad. Why k-public have to imply that SHK is the wrong party?? She's been in public eyes twice longer than her soon to be ex husband. Of course who she dated are well known more than her soon to be ex-husband. Don't be a prude lah!
I have some theory and speculation about why they divorce. It has nothing to do with rumour from Chinese websites. If you watch news and read article leading to their wedding it's not a surprise that this marriage will not last unless there are mutual efforts from both SJK-SHK to make it works. They are international celebrities, the pressure are different from plebs like us.
Knowing how serious k-celebs maintain their image, I'm just surprised SJK handle it this way. He's like trying to incite he's been wronged and that's what k-public perceived. Not cool SJK.

It is neutral. You aren’t speculating wildly based on your personal emotions.

The most interesting thing I’ve read is that usually, in Korea, the aggrieved/wronged party is the one who filed for the divorce, so people started speculating about that, and dragged poor PBG - who is SJK’s buddy - into it, just because of that badly cast, badly written, badly directed boring drama he was in with SHJ. His agency even had to put out a statement saying would sue the hell out of anyone who even dared to hint about something that stupid.

“Netizens” seem to think that their idols have no lives, and that they are actually the characters they play, rather than real people who are acting.

Yeah, I'm not particularly a fan of either of them, but even if he was the aggrieved party, I think professional courtesy dictates that statements like this are worded neutrally.

Not to put blame on anyone, but I'm not surprised that SJK is the one to break this news and I genuinely feel bad for Song Hye Kyo over this. SJK's stakes in this marriage were not as high as SHK's considering he is male and much younger. SHK made it clear before they started dating that she was too old to date without intent to marry and considering that she's already 37 I doubt she'd be eager to get a divorce at this point. SJK has plenty of time for the rumors to subside, continue to build up his career, and meet and date someone new, but SHK's biological clock is not on her side and if she rushes into a new relationship just so that she can have kids in time then the public will probably roast her for changing men too quickly. I'm disappointed that these two couldn't find a way to reconcile their relationship (it's not even been 2 years yet!), but on the bright side at least they're getting this out of the way before a child is in the picture.

I was wondering about this too. If she wants children how this effects that with her job. In S. Korea could she (if she wanted to) decide to get pregnant and have a child on her own and it not effect her career?

Isn't it strange that he is the one controlling the narrative? He never had that kind of influence before. He has painted himself as the aggrieved party completely.

It could mean that he may have an upper hand here....aka the aggrieved party in terms of law of South Korea.....or he is just angry and being petulant for no reason....we will never know unless this goes full on ugly

They could have filed for divorce jointly. I'm surprised he filled for divorce. It goes against his public image and he sounded angry.

Exactly. I have never been a fan of SJK but he has been very careful with his image and boy got good head on his shoulder. With him making the first move and not to mention, he was the one still wearing the wedding ring long after she took it off, he must have been too pissed to decide on this route. He seems to be the one more into the relationship than her, so to have him act with less consideration for her is really weird. Something big must have happened.

I read on Koreaboo that he went to watch a musical on the same day after submitting his divorce petition that morning. It's like, "Fine, let's get this done once and for all. This has to end now."

I agree. Divorce is always going to be messy but this one seems a bit more out of character/narrative for a top celebrity couple.

The fact that it was not a joint divorce, the statement, the timing during his airing drama. I do feel like a lot of these actions are driven out of emotion and a little sudden spur of the moment rather than calculated or drawn out divorce. Especially since he had mentioned her and their marriage only a month ago in a positive light.

I do understand the speculation around their divorce though it is a shame. I'm not sure if he's being too overt about any potential wrongdoing. If that was intentional, I understand why people are critical. But on the other hand, they are still people and can hurt just the same as normal people.

5

he was also not wearing his ring. But just before his drama was going to air, he started to use the ring again, to not make the marriage rumors steal the drama spotlight

2

They are citing irreconcilable differences.. .it could very well be that they are too emotionally distant and in pain to issue a joint statement....they are humans...it is fine for one or both sides feel angry, they have the right to be so.......we don't know what happened....I think the message was pretty honest...he is hurt and he said so....doesn't mean Song Hye Kyo did this to him...he could be hurting because of his own actions....they got married in honeymoon phase of their relationship it seems....first few blows of strong wind was too much....bottom line don't marry on a momentary feeling of bliss....committment takes more than love without the added pressure of maintaining a saintly celebrity image

What, they don’t have their own lives or get to make their own decisions?

I practice family law. Believe me, there was nothing uncivil or nasty about either statement. Divorces are sometimes super ugly, especially when one party wants the divorce and the other doesn’t.

This was an extremely short relationship and an extremely short marriage. Sounds like they both realized pretty quickly that it was a big mistake, and now just want to separate their personal and business affairs with as little fuss as possible.

But that is exactly what he is doing imo. There is a line in that statement makes me gives him a major side eye tbh. Really? The fact that he is the ones who file and making a statement about it is enough to send hate flying to SHK.

To those saying SJK and PBG are not best friends - I certainly hope they are, or else, what was all that crying about on SJK's part when PBG received his acting award? If they're not the closest of friends then something is very, very, VERY weird. (It was weird on any level but if they're not close friends...)

@ramonathepest They are friends, no doubt. However anyone paying close attention to their spheres know they are not best friends. You can always name a bunch of closer friends, for either of them.

I wouldn't deny that they are close friends and PBG respects him heavily as an 'older brother' and senior figure, but I don't think they are best friends.... Park Bo Gum just seems like he is everyone's best friend because he's such a sweetheart :)

Of course we don't know if it's true, but I always thought doing a romantic drama with your spouses best friend was a bad idea. I knew there would be cheating rumors even if it wasn't true.

Right now both fans starts churning out cheating/affair rumors. But even without it, SHK will definitely get hit harder since... well... she is a woman. Let me just say it outright. Just look all the comments mud slinging at her already.

he isn't a best friend.. kwang soo is best friend, in sung is best friend..

PBG is a junior in the same company and both garnered stardom at same time.. he is still a junior.. not a best friend

@alasecond why isn't he a best friend? SJK himself has said PBG is a best friend.

There are cheating rumors for both sides, apparently rumors out of the China were that he was cheating with her friend while current rumors in Korea is she cheated with PBG. Regardless if any of the rumors are true or not, SHK will get the bigger image hit because because korean women always do but also because she has a history of dating her costars repeatedly so that dating history is being used to mudsling at her right now. It doesn't help that SJK is SK's golden boy with a clean record image wise and has the upper hand because he released and non-descript statement first.

I don't believe one of them or both of them cheated on each other. I think it's the case of "my job is more important/bigger than yours" "you should act as my spouse" etc. Basically ego, pride and different expectations.
SJK probably expected SHK would take Kim Tae-hee route, semi retired from entertainment business. SHK has been working since she was 16 y/o doesn't want to slow down and she's rightly so.
Both families probably also involved in their separation.
Cheating is very risky with dispatch in every corner trying to catch your wrongdoing. So, no, I don't buy it.

5

Though the C-media is proven right for starting the divorce speculation, I highly doubt on SJK's cheating rumour.

All because in SK, the guilty party cannot ask to terminate a marriage (referring to recent divorce petition by Hong Sang Soo who's having an affair with Kim Min Hee). If SJK is really the cheater and proven guilty here, SHK can easily just everything on her part but refusing the divorce with evidence that he is the guilty party. Hence, save her image, easy.

So, no, not likely he is that stupid to file for a divorce knowing that his image could be tarnished (if he really cheated on her). Regarding her cheating rumours with PBG, that's basically baseless.

They are simply not compatible to begin with. The romance and marriage was a surprise, the divorce isn't a shock at all.

If you looked into her past romances, he's clearly not her type. Everything so whirlwind between her and SJK.

5

@mano and @Jackie I completely agree, I personally don't think anyone cheated. I think it was two people that both have big careers ad egos and wanted different things for the future. Probably couldn't agree on when to have children (or to have children at all) or how to balance both their careers. Also their constant distance from each other probably didn't help matters. There were probably a lot of things they just simply couldn't be on the same page about that are fundamental for a marriage working.

5

Koreans seem to be painting her as the Korean Jennifer Aniston. I feel for her

0

Hmmm.... to think that he is daring enough to articulate his pain and that he is hurting in his official statement, he must have had his reason to do so. And to think that the statement could be taken as reckless and uncool, means he doesn't care about image anymore. He just wants out. Seems out of his character but he did it, so again, there must be a reason to be that pissed.

And please, pardon him for being angry. Divorce is a big thing esp the involved parties. He could be reckless, could be clouded by his emotion or what. Who cares about being cool by then. SHK happened to be the veteran one in the industry, thus has better approach in handling this, I guess.

He wanted to paint her as the antagonist and he has successfully managed to do that. They were barely married how do they even have enough shared property for there to be a contested divorce? This should have been a clear and simple uncontested divorce but he dragged it right out there. Something else has to be the reason for him doing so.

I admit I know nothing about celebrities and what their schedules are like and how that affects a marriage but I would've thought that as newlyweds whose schedules keep them apart for months at a time that they wouldn't have had enough time to get on each other's nerves so badly yet to result in irreconcilable differences.

I don't think SJK has nothing to lose. Korea seems very conservative about marriage. Look at how Seo Jang-hoon, for instance, is treated with respect to a marriage that ended over half a decade ago. Song Joong-ki and Seo Jang-hoon are not the same person, but I don't imagine it will necessarily be easy for him either.

None of this is to deny that SHK will experience way worse than SJK though.

They never had children, the best decision they've ever made since they are divorcing because they do not share common goals.
So the rumours were truth after all. Since February there were rumours about them in Weibo and at some point these rumours started to be spread in South Korea. The noise was too loud, their agencies denied and claimed to be lies at that time.
I imagine rumours of cheating coming up.

I also consider they married way too fast and mostly because of SK pressure after outing them dating,the obvious pressure that dating meant soon to marry(and obviously out of question living a time together to really know themselves better)...They didn't have enough time to know themselves better and this clashed on them...In the end people will speculate and rumors will fly but only they know what happened and what didn't work...I personally think that even if they loved each other they didn't match personality,living style etc.,expectations for the future...It's sad for them and hope bot overcome it and people stop pointing fingers at each of them and do the guilty one game...In the end it's their private life and if they don't wanna share more it's their right...Lesson: Life isin't a kdrama...

Hmm didn't expect this news to be covered here at DB since you don't usually report on tabloids/scandals/gossip outside of drama-related news/projects.

But this definitely was sudden news, especially because they have not been married for THAT long and SJK has a currently airing drama and PR tends to want to keep these things under wraps until projects are over. Oh wells, I hope they both get the time and space to get over the situation.

The first thing that came to my mind was that I don't trust this industry anymore. And idk why and I am angry that this was the first thing I thought because divorce is such a personal matter and most likely not related to the industry at all. But recently there were rumors of Kim Nam joo and her husband not having a good relationship either and just putting a positive face for the public. Whatsoever, I wish them both well. I'd be a little biased and say that I hope SHK gathers a lot more strength because women and specially her get criticized more in such cases.

The least we can do as Beanies is do exactly what they asked. Respecting their privacy and not speculating a THING. They might or not have been a perfect match. They purposefully or accidentally made careless desicions with statements. They might or might not have stopped to think about how this is going to affect their and each others' careers.
Whatever mayhave driven them to their decisions, since it's not anything deserving of public outrage like abuse or stuff, we'll leave it to them. PLUS, it's YET to see whether either one's career is gonna tank because of this, we fans don't need to accuse the other's party. It's stupid if people are gonna combine this with their job and stop supporting them, leading to a war between fans; "My celebrity suffered because of the other! " .
Anyway we can't stop others, we Beanies will continue supporting them, two proffesional actors. My liking and disliking would solely be based on their acting performance.
Stay strong!

SJK statement was really in bad taste, speak about adding fuel to a fire. SHK already was a target of hate because she is a few yrs older and was not lilly white virgin before their marriage and now there is more hate and slander throw toward her, not cool SJK, not cool.

SJK has a clean scandal-less career and wouldn't drag someone under the bus for no reason. And look at SHK's past history with men and tell me that it isn't likely to be her fault.

I’m disappointed in the discourse of the comments on this article. Particularly when we have no real insight into their relationship and why it has failed. But to lay the blame at the woman’s feet because she dares to have had relationships in the past? Yeah, take that elsewhere please.

Relationships fail ever day. And honestly, none of this is any of my business, and I hope they are both doing well despite what must be a difficult time for both.

She dated before and so is he, it's not enough to put the blame on anyone for marriage failure.

I don't freakin' understand why Song Joong-ki's statement is considered as being in bad taste. I mean, I read their statements, both were civil, nothing disrespectful and rude.

Frankly, I found Joong-ki's statement as honest and polite. Are there hidden words that I am not seeing? And why do people say he's got nothing to lose from this matter? What the fucking hell? Just because he's a guy and he's younger? Does that make him more or less of a human? He is part of that relationship, he is also hurt. BOTH of them are suffering.

I haven't noticed from the statement but people are saying he's angry. WHAT THE HECK is the problem if he is? should he be happy then? He is getting a divorce, for Pete's sake.

Their situation is sad and heartbreaking. I don't know the details, I don't know the whys and the hows of their relationship. I don't know what exactly went wrong. And I don't have a right to judge who is at fault between them. And neither do you. Unless you know everything that has happened through their journey. So please, let them live.

This. I saw few comments that say he threw her under bus, I was like bitch where? I literally had to read his statement thrice to see what they are reading that I cannot. At this moment, they both are under various speculation and reading too much in small thing will make it dirtier. Hope they are given privacy. Stop painting any of them as responsible for their failed marriage.

Yes, because netizens always know what's up. *eyeroll* COME ON. For real. Marriages are hard WITHOUT all the interference from outside parties. The pressure on these two was immense...far more than I think I've EVER seen on a couple in S. Korea (and that is saying something).

How many Korean idols have committed suicide in the last few years because of pressure from deranged, obsessed “Netizens”?

I personally would HATE to be a Korean idol. The fans are insane. Literally. I followed Koreaboo on twitter, not knowing it was just a stupid gossip rag, and the insane, over the top obsessiveness of the commenters is disturbing and downright scary.

Sorry to break it to you but not all articles are considered factual. And for the sake of the argument, let's say he went ahead, you know what? It's none of my business. I don't effin know the whole story so who am I to find faults at anyone? For goodness sake, just let them deal with it. And please people, stop being a know-it-all.

If it is none of your business you should not have made the initial comment in the first place to defend him. Celebrities owe their entire career to fans and public so when things go south they owe their fans an explanation. They would not exist without us spending our time and money on them. If you choose to live in the public eye you have to suffer the cost of fame
No one forced the. to be a celebrity and profit from it. It is very much our business since their future careers depends on our support.

Totally agree that Netizens are trash. I haven’t meant to keep following this story, but my various drama notifications have been full of it. My favorite rumor now is about how SJK is allegedly going bald - either over stress from the divorce or from karmic retribution! Hahahahaha! Evidence is a 2013 selfie photo taken with a friend, in which he has messy hair. (I see no evidence that his hair is any different than it’s ever been - he’s always worn it short, and doesn’t appear to have ever had the super thick hair that the “flower boy” crowd has had. I’ve never seen it long, but also never noticed signs of pattern baldness that is hereditary).

Don’t care who is “at fault.” I live in a no fault state, and often have to explain to clients that here, it doesn’t matter if spouse cheated or abandoned - no law will force a person who wants out of a marriage to stay married, or question the reasons they want out. I will say, however, that after reading SHK has previously had only two publicized relationships, both with her male co-stars in romantic dramas, I am even more reminded of those old Hollywood flash marriages, where the actors (mostly the women) “fall in love” with their drama partner during filming, and then sober up to reality soon after the film ends, or more likely, until they film another romance and fall for their next romantic partner. Sad when actors - like dumb fans - can’t separate reality from fiction.

YES! I agree with you,@cozylurker. I read both SJK and SHK statements and BOTH were civil, nothing disrespectful or rude, just honest. I don't understand why people are saying that SJK statement is "pissed off" or how he "threw her under the bus".
I feel terrible for both of them, so sad. I was shocked because they haven't been married for that long.

Irreconcilable differences can mean many different things, but it is the easiest way in order to get a divorce granted by a court. It was not an agreed divorce because there is a dispute about property issues. Advertising industry reports indicate that many endorsement sponsors of SHG are dropping her so there is a financial and reputation damage to each celebrity when there is a divorce.

This story is another reason why shippers of co-stars in dramas should get married in real life need to take a deep breath. It probably adds more pressure on celebrity couples having their relationship under a public microscope.

So much speculation, so little time.

PEOPLE. Divorces happen. Especially with celebrities!!! Marriage is hard under the best of circumstances, and we can all agree that being married as a celebrity is automatically not the best circumstance. "He seemed angry"...well, yeah. I'm guessing he is. Everyone going through a divorce goes through periods of anger. As a fully formed adult, I realize that placing blame and taking sides...even if there IS blame to go around...is a massive waste of time and energy.

Also, I saw someone mention that DB doesn't usually post gossip/scandals...this isn't that. This actually is news. Statements were put out. This falls in line with what DB usually posts. They aren't speculating on what happened, simply reporting the news. Don't criticize them...they are one of the best media outlets I've come across!

TBH, I'm glad to see this news here at DB. Hopefully it means that DB won't be operating in a vacuum anymore. I'll never forget that when Dramafever site totally shut down (huge news story for the KDrama fan community) there was total news blackout here-not one official article from DB about it. Only comments from beanies at Open Thread. I was totally shocked and disappointed by that, so I'm glad to see DB do more reporting on the industry and fan concerns and not just K Drama show press conferences.

I remember that, too, but my guess is that it happened right when they were dealing with their own personnel crisis (remember when they decided to hire a new person?). Also, they may not have known more than we did at the time...there wasn't much information available, frankly. But I agree, I'm glad they're covering it (so there is some respectful dialogue for those of us who care).

👏👏👏👏👏
If we get a divorce, would we like it if our families and friends and colleagues speculate and whisper theories about why it happened? And we are not celebrities. Doesn't mean celebrities don't feel the same!
It's terribly intrusive and disrespectful to disregard what the both parties kindly requested of us. After all, who are we to guess what had been going in another person's life, celebrity or not? We haven't even SEEN in them in RL!
Funny, the lesson was nailed and driven in to me by none other than a kdrama(Dear My Friends). So...I dunno. There's nothing more to say.

There is a fine but important line between being curious and being overboard. It's okay to wonder what happened...yes, THAT much is human. But I'm seeing people making assumptions and taking sides in a divorce that has literally NOTHING to do with them. I, for one, always WANT to know, but the truth generally lies in the middle. One person alone is rarely solely to blame.

The fact they got married so quickly without knowing each others warts and all may have been a part of it. You can know a person for years and never really know how they gel with your life. This is really sad to hear.

I have never been a fan of her however I don't know why I m feeling so sad for her.Its like someone close to me going through these horrible moments. It can be both of their fault or either one of them.Regardless, somehow I feel her stacks are very high.I can't do anything for her,that's why thought at least can post a comment to let her know,I somehow understand your pain and truly wish that u can overcome this and find happiness in life.That's what matters.Fighting Unni.

FYI, I don't have anything against SJK.He might be a good guy.
