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:
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.
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.
