Goo Hye Sun: a broken marriage and a not-so-successful career

Goo Hye Sun rose to fame owing to “Boys Over Flowers”, but her career has stagnated after 11 years.

Changed her life thanks to “Boys Over Flowers” but after more than 10 years still living off the money made from this drama

Goo Hye Sun (born 1984) is a South Korean actress, singer, songwriter, director, and painter. She first made an impression on the audience through the dramas Pure In Heart, The King And I, but it was not until 2009 when she played Boys Over Flowers that she became a famous star.

After the success of “Boys Over Flowers”, Goo Hye Sun continued to take on the main roles in “The Music”, then “Take Care of Us”, “Captain”, “Absolute Boyfriend”,… However, none of her works were as successful as “Boys Over Flowers”. She was even criticized for her bad acting and still lived under her own shadow. Even so, Goo Hye Sun doesn’t seem to care much as more than 10 years later, she can still live on the money earned from “Boys Over Flowers”.

The short marriage and the journey to turn the ex-husband into the guilty

Goo Hye Sun stated on March 11, 2016, that she had been dating actor Ahn Jae Hyun, her co-star in the drama “Blood,” since April 2015. The audience applauded their marriage, especially since Goo Hye Sun has never openly loved or dated anyone else in her whole career. The couple received even more blessings when they announced that instead of organizing a marriage ceremony, they would contribute money to Severance Hospital’s pediatric department.

Their marriage also ended quickly. On August 18, 2019, Goo Hye Sun posted a photo of a text message between her and her husband, talking about their divorce. After that, she released a series of proof that she was a victim of a deadlocked marriage. She received a lot of sympathy from the audience. But her complaining too much on social media put her in a disadvantageous situation. Gradually, the audience raised doubts that Ahn Jae Hyun was really the “victim” whose image was destroyed by his ex-wife.

After the divorce, she revealed in an Instagram post that she would retire from the entertainment industry. Then, she reappeared exactly 26 days after this statement. Currently, she has not come back as an actress but as a director.
