Descendants of the Sun lead actor Song Joong-ki has filed divorce from his wife Song Hye-kyo, according to his legal counsel, Thursday, June 27.
“I have begun the process of filing for divorce from Song Hye Kyo,” Joong-ki stated, as announced by Park Jae-hyun, his legal counsel.
He also added, “Rather than denouncing one another and arguing over who is to blame, I hope that the divorce process can be wrapped up amicably.”
The Korean actor apologized to the fans for delivering such unfortunate news.
“I’d like to apologize for delivering this unfortunate news to the many fans who love and care for me,” he said.
Joong-ki also asked for understanding and guaranteed the fans that he will recover soon and give better shows for the fans to watch out.
“I ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that it is difficult to discuss the details of my personal life, and I will recover from my current wounds and do my utmost as an actor to repay you through great productions in the future. Thank you.”
Meanwhile, Song Joong-ki’s lawyer mentioned that its law firm already filed the divorce yesterday on his behalf at the Seoul Family Court.
The SongSong couple married in October 2017 after the hit of their television series “Descendants of the Sun.”
