Song Joong Ki files for divorce from Song Hye Kyo

Song Joong Ki files for divorce from Song Hye Kyo

Netizens are speculating why the now dubbed "Song-Song" couple filed for divorce.

Lee & Ko, the law firm representing actor Song Joong-ki, said Thursday it filed for divorce mediation at the Seoul Family Court on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old actor was quoted as saying he's offering an apology to his fans because he had to deliver "not good news".

Speaking through his agency, Song Joong-ki said he hoped the divorce would be amicable.

Some of the rumors involved Park Bo-gum, a 26-year-old actor, whom the actress Song collaborated with in her recent drama series "Encounter". I ask for your understanding that it is hard to tell you about my personal life, and I will recover from this current wound and do my best to repay you with good productions in future.

They were co-stars in hit Korean melodrama serial "Descendents of the sun" in which they played the role of soldier and doctor who fall in love with each other.

CEO Dennis Muilenburg said yesterday he's having "ongoing conversations" with 737 Max customers about potential reimbursements. A near identical aircraft, owned by the Indonesian carrier Lion Air , went down in the sea off Jakarta in October 2018.

Speaking at a news conference on his news drama series, "Arthdal Chronicles", on May 28, he said, "After marriage, I earned stability of mind". "After careful consideration, Song Hye-kyo and her husband have made a decision to take legal steps to end their marriage", the agency said, citing "personality differences" as the main cause of the divorce. Although given this breaking news, we may all have to face the truth that our SongSong couple will now only, forever and always, remain frozen in the world of the first DOTS.

In addition, please refrain from making sensational reports and leaving speculative comments, for the sake of the actors. "After careful consideration, actress Song Hye Kyo and her husband are taking the first steps toward a divorce".

According to sources close to Song Hye-kyo, the two sides have agreed upon most of the terms of the divorce, including the division of assets.

Last year, she even attended a state dinner in Beijing as one of the guests when South Korean President Moon Jae-in visited China. They announced their engagement in July 2017 and got married on October 31, 2017.
