Song - Song Couple Call It Quits as Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo File for Divorce

The day has just gone to the dogs *sob*. After just two years of marriage, the fairy tale has quickly soured for KDrama’s favourite couple. 

Hearts are breaking all over the world as the shocking news that Korea’s golden couple Song Joong Ki and Song Hye kyo are headed for a divorce broke earlier today. In a statement through his lawyer, Song Joong Ki announced that he has filed for divorce from his wife Song Hye Kyo at the Seoul Family Court yesterday, June 26. The actor apologised to his fans and asked for their understanding in these difficult times. Song Joong Ki also expressed his hope for an amicable split in his official statement.

Meanwhile, Song Hye Kyo also confirmed the split separately via a statement through her agency, adding that the reason for the divorce is irreconcilable differences in personality which they could not overcome. Like Joong Ki, the actress requested for people’s understanding and for people to refrain from writing sensationalised reports.

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye kyo met while on the set of their mega hit military drama Descendants of the Sun in 2016. After months of speculation from the public, the couple announced their engagement in July of 2017 and their intent to wed in October of the same year. The couple wed in a star-studded ceremony attended by celebrities and friends that included the couple’s colleagues from Descendants, writer Kim Eun Suk, Joong Ki’s Running Man friends like Lee Kwang Soo and Kim Joong Kook at Seoul’s The Shilla Hotel

Other celebrity guests included Super Junior’s Donghae and Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi who actually had some encouraging words to say about the couple's choice on her social media page, saying that people should respect the couple’s choice as she believes it was probably the best choice for them (under the circumstances). The actress also adds that she’s hopeful to seeing Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki in finer form in the future.

    1. Rain and Kim tae her is expecting their second child. Both of then are very private person. I'm sure they will last for a long time.

      Li Chen and fan Bing Bing have gone their own separate ways. Maybe because due to her tax scandals

    2. Rain and Kim Tae Hee are a little different. They dated while Rain was in military. Neither he nor she is really at the peak of K-entertainment, which is to say they don't have the pressure and push to focus on career. They both seem to be in the same place in life - a place where they are focusing on raising a family. To me, it seems like they have gone through more together as a couple. The relationship is more tested, is what I'm trying to say.

  2. Aww..That is so sad. I was so hoping they would announce a baby soon. The media needs to leave them alone.

  3. Here in New Zealand we are sad to hear about this lovely couples separation. We were so excited to learn of their nuptials just two years ago. Hopefully they will be able to overcome this crisis and carry on with their lives as the outstanding actors that we know and love and the hiatus period will be short as they go into a recovery mode and continue to produce more dramas and movies for all of us to enjoy. We send our good wishes out to to them both. Please don't slip into bouts of depression and overcome this situation in the best possible way. Move forward with the passion and positivity that you a capable of. Sending our love and blessing for an awe-inspiring future. From your die-hard fans in Kaikohe, Bay of Islands,New Zealand
