It seems that Song Joong Ki is moving on pretty well from his divorce with Song Hye Kyo 3 years ago.
Around 3 years ago, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo suddenly parted ways to the shock of the entire Asia. With their divorce, the Song-Song couple “happily ever after” lasted a meager 2 years.
The union between Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo used to be dubbed “the wedding of the century”, only to end abruptly.
Following this divorce, netizens started to watch every move of the couple, and reached a mutual conclusion: the break up hasn’t done a dime to the popularity of both celebrities.
These netizens also commented that while Song Hye Kyo keeps most of her post-divorce life private, Song Joong Ki is enjoying a perfectly happy single life.
Rising career and wealth
Alongside taking on new projects, the now-single Song Joong Ki also receives invitations to various events. His career is also on the rise, with a staggering high net worth to boot.
In 2021, Song Joong Ki officially surpassed his ex-wife to become the 4th highest earner of the year in the entertainment industry. This is a complete change from when the actor was fresh out of his divorce, where he mostly stayed silent and was mocked for living more miserable compared to Song Hye Kyo.
In addition to his new projects, Song Joong Ki also becomes a favorite face for many luxury brands. He also branches out to Japan, and finally creates an Instagram account to improve his influence and interact with fans.
For the first time since his acting debut, Song Joong Ki started using Instagram.
Numerous dating rumors
According to netizens, Song Joong Ki’s love life also seems to be flourishing alongside his career, as proven by various dating rumors. While all of them remain unconfirmed, Song Joong Ki’s close relationships with female co-stars are evidence that he’s leading a good life.
First, there were gossips about Song Joong Ki with Kim Ok Bin – his acting partner in “Arthdal Chronicles”. As this broke out soon after the actor’s divorce, actress Kim Ok Bin actually got quite the ire from netizens of the time.
When Song Joong Ki starred in “Vincenzo”, suspicions around him and female co-star Jeon Yeo Bin also started to rise. This stemmed from their chummy interactions in behind the scenes videos, as well as from super attentive gestures on Song Joong Ki’s half.
Netizens also got excited when the actor appeared at the Busan International Film Festival, where he was spotted looking and Jeon Yeo Bin tenderly. At the Blue Dragon Film Awards of the same year, the two also freely talked to each other, unminding the public’s eyes. This is a drastic change compared to the reserved Joong Ki of the past.
Most recently though, Song Joong Ki publicly expressed his affection for actress Kim Tae Ri, despite their collaboration “Space Sweepers” having ended ages ago. His actor raised doubts among fans and netizens alike.
In particular, the actor posted on Instagram a photo of him watching Kim Tae Ri’s first vlog, along with the caption: “Please support ‘geogiga yeoginga’ (Kim Tae Ri’s vlog name). #Victory.” This cute gesture was soon followed by dating rumors, as this was Song Joong Ki’s first time posting about an actress that he’s not currently working with.
While all are just gossip from fans, it seems that Song Joong Ki is getting as many dating rumors as his ex-wife in her past.
