The identity of actor Song Joong Ki’s girlfriend is drawing attention as some believed they met when Song was learning Italian for “Vincenzo.”
While Song Joong Ki was reported to be dating a non-celebrity from the UK through an exclusive article on Dec 26th, netizens’ curiosity regarding his girlfriend’s identity is rising. However, all that is officially known is the fact that his girlfriend is from the U.K.
After the exclusive article was posted, Song Joong Ki’s agency, HighZium Studio, immediately acknowledged his dating relationship, saying, “Song Joong Ki is dating, and his relationship is going well. We hope everyone can support his decision.” However, the agency added its cautious stance, saying, “We ask for your understanding that we cannot check any information other than the fact that they are dating.”
Meanwhile, the identity of Song Joong Ki’s girlfriend is the biggest topic online at the moment. Currently, the most persuasive theory online is the suspicion that Song Joong Ki’s lover is Katy Louise Saunders, a former British actress. This theory is based on Song Joong Ki’s acceptance speech after receiving the Daesang for “Vincenzo” at the “APAN Star Awards” held in September, as he is claimed to have mentioned her name, Katie, and the name of Katie’s dogs in his speech.
Katy Louise Saunders, who is believed to be Song Joong Ki’s lover, was born to a British father and a Colombian mother and reportedly spent her childhood in London, England, and Rome, Italy. Born in 1984, she is one year older than Song Joong Ki.
She made her acting debut in 2002 in the film “Un viaggio chiamato amore,” and later starred in films such as “The Lizzie McGuire Movie,” “Los Borgia,” and “Third Person.” Currently, she is said to have quit acting and worked as an English teacher.
In response, Song Joong Ki’s process of learning Italian for the filming of “Vincenzo” is drawing attention again, and some argue that Song Joong Ki may have developed feelings for Katy Louise Saunders after learning Italian from her at the time.
