Comparisons are made by netizens to see the uniqueness of the Korean actress and English teacher.
As soon as the news broke out that Song Joong Ki is dating a former English actress Katy Louise Saunders, netizens started to pass around Saunders’ photos, praising the sturdy and attractive image that set herself apart from the actor’s previous partner.
As the discussion went on, Katy Louise Saunders and Song Hye Kyo, Song Joong Ki’s ex-wife, are set on a scale in terms of their height and beauty. Saunders boasts an impressive height of 1.71m (5ft6) that surpassed that of Song Hye Kyo. Nonetheless, when it comes to beauty, Song Hye Kyo has the advantage of a youthful, charming image while in her 40s.
Actor Song’s English girlfriend started acting in 2002 and has stopped her activities to become an English teacher. She appeared in “The Borgia” (2006), “Third Person” (2013), “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” (2003), “Welcome Home” (2018) and “The Scorpion King: Book of Souls” (2018).
Song Hye Kyo is an A-list star in Korea. Her notable works include “Descendants of the Sun”, “Autumn in My Heart” and “Full House”. The actress is very active in promotional activities and filming but has not made a strong impression as she once did.
When Song Joong Ki announced his new relationship, the public turned their attention to his former spouse and her current activities. Coincidentally, the actress’ most recent post was on her 41st birthday where actress Song expressed that she was very happy and healthy thanks to her fans’ love.
Song Joong Ki delegated authority to his management company to speak of his relationship with his current girlfriend, regardless of language and nationality. There was a rumor the couple went to an obstetrics clinic but the company did not verify the information. While the majority remained happy for the new couple, others found it hard to accept how fast Song Joong Ki moved on from his past relationship.
According to the management company, Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders have been together for one year and met through a friend’s acquaintance. Korean news also reported that the actor’s English communicative skills have improved a lot after dating Saunders.
More notably, at the “APAN Star Awards” in September 2022, Song Joong Ki did mention his girlfriend, and her puppies, in his acceptance speech but was not suspected by any one. The speech said: “And my beloved Katy, Nalla, Maya, Antes.”
