'Korean Wave' celebrity couple to split, fans mourn

'Korean Wave' celebrity couple to split, fans mourn”

Following the marriage, however, the couple has been facing nagging rumors of separation, and some Chinese media outlets tried to verify it by publishing photos of the actress Song without her wedding band on in early 2019.

Joong-ki and Hye-kyo tied the knot in October 2017 after starring in hit television series "Descendants of the Sun".

"I chose to start a court mediation procedure for my divorce from Song Hye-kyo", the actor said through Blossom Entertainment, his management agency.

The 33-year-old actor offered an apology to his fans because he had to deliver "not good news", according to the Seoul-based Lee & Ko law firm.

When asked about Song Joong Ki's personal schedule, the agency replied, "Because it's the actor's personal life, we can not go into details".

On Thursday (June 27), Song Hye-kyo's label UAA Korea blamed personality differences for the breakdown in her marriage. He added it's hard to share the details of his personal life but promised to repay fans' support through great productions in the future.

After only a little over two years, the fairytale-like marriage between the two top stars of Descendants of the Sun is over.

Hello. This is Song Joong-ki. It seems that such rumors were fabricated as Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum recently worked on a production together.

In a statement released by her management agency, Song Hye-kyo cited "differences in personality" for the breakdown in their relationship without going into further details.

Back then Song Joong-ki's label Blossom Entertainment had already denied the rumours.

He continued, "I ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that it is hard to discuss the details of my personal life". "After careful consideration, actress Song Hye Kyo and her husband are taking the first steps toward a divorce".

We apologise for fuelling worries.

Another asked: "So they just got married because of temporary emotion?"

However, last month, Joong-ki - with wedding ring clearly visible - thanked his wife for being very supportive during a press conference for his latest drama Arthdal Chronicles, now streaming on Netflix.
