Actor Song Joong Ki (37) found a new love.
Rumors of marriage and pregnancy with British actress Katy Louise Saunders (38) arose, but Song Joong Ki‘s side only acknowledged the fact that he is dating a British woman and insisted that it is “difficult to confirm anything else“.
According to Song Joong Ki’s agency HighZium Studio on Dec 26th, he is dating a British woman named A. They met last year through the introduction of an acquaintance and have been dating for a year. The agency said, “Song Joong Ki is dating a woman with good feelings. We hope you give the two’s romantic relationship a warm gaze. Please understand that we cannot confirm any information other than the dating fact. Please refrain from unconfirmed speculative reports.“
Song Joong Ki attended the media conference of “Reborn Rich” held at Resorts World Sentosa Coliseum, Singapore on Dec 7th. Song Joong Ki was accompanied by A, and he reportedly introduced A to the staff as his lover. It was initially known that A is not in the entertainment industry, but opinions were raised that A is British actress Katy Louise Saunders. Song Joong Ki thanked his family after winning the grand prize at “APAN Star Awards” on Sep 29th. He also mentioned, “My beloved Katy, Nalla, Maya and Antes.” Nalla is Song Joong Ki’s dog. In April 2014, Katy posted a photo taken with her dogs Maya and Antes on Facebook.
Rumors of pregnancy and marriage also spread. In response to the post “Song Joong Ki will announce his marriage soon” on an online community, one netizen attracted attention by commenting, “A few days ago, my friend’s brother-in-law said that he saw Song Joong Ki went to a maternity clinic with a foreign actress. I guess it’s true.” Regarding this, the agency HighZium Studio told TV Report, “We have no plans to respond to pregnancy rumors.” Song Joong Ki’s side admitted that he is in a romantic relationship, but asked people to refrain from speculating about other facts.
Katy Louise Saunders was born to an English father and a Colombian mother. She spent her childhood in London, England and Italy. In the past, she worked as an actress and is known for her appearances in films such as “Los Borgia” (2006), “Third Person” (2013) and “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” (2003). However, she is reportedly retired from acting with no new activities in a long while. Song Joong Ki’s side did not disclose his lover’s information, causing various speculations such as “Katy was Song Joong Ki’s English teacher“, “Katy was Song Joong Ki’s Italian teacher during ‘Vincenzo’“… Song Joong Ki learned the local language for the role of an Italian mafia in tvN’s drama “Vincenzo” last year.
Song Joong Ki married actress Song Hye Kyo (41) in 2017 and divorced in June 2019. He left a strong impression on viewers in JTBC’s Fri-Sat-Sun drama “Reborn Rich“, which ended the previous day. He played a double role as Yoon Hyun Woo, a loyal higher-up employee working for chaebol Soonyang Group, and Jin Do Jun, the youngest grandson of the Soonyang family.
