The truth about Song Joong Ki – Song Hye Kyo’s divorce
The Song-Song couple’s split is always a topic netizens are interested in.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo went from on-screen romance to real-life relationship after co-starring in the hit drama Descendants of the Sun. Their marriage used to be considered as surreal as a dream, but unfortunately ended up in a shocking divorce. After the two called it quits, many theories were raised by netizens over their decision to break the marriage. In which, there are many rumors that the cause of divorce is mostly from Song Joong Ki‘s side.
In Korea, not everyone is allowed to file for divorce, especially one who did something “wrong” during the marriage. Therefore, the party filing for divorce first is often considered the “victim” in the story.
Song Joong Ki was the first to inform the public about the divorce decision. This caused many netizens to think Song Hye Kyo must have done something that “enraged” her husband. Therefore, Song Hye Kyo had to receive a lot of criticism after the divorce news broke out. Meanwhile, according to fans of Song Hye Kyo, Song Joong Ki’s actions show that he didn’t care about her reputation.
Many of the duo’s mutual friends were also upset with how Song Joong Ki handled the situation. After the divorce, some screenwriters were even rumored to feel uncomfortable and refuse to offer Song Joong Ki to star in their works.
Song Hye Kyo had to endure the public gossip after Song Joong Ki‘s announcement because the majority of netizens thought the fault was probably on her. Not to mention, Korean netizens still hold grudges against Song Hye Kyo because of her tax evasion controversy. While in fact, it was Song Hye Kyo who filed for divorce.
She did not speak. Only when the divorce was finalized that everything became clear. The press immediately reported the news, sparking a wave of backlash. Many netizens think that it seems that Song Joong Ki tried to take advantage of the public to put pressure on Song Hye Kyo, and at the same time play the victim to preserve his reputation.
Some friends of Song Hye Kyo even revealed that in reality, Song Joong Ki is different from what he shows in public. Song Joong Ki’s decision to tie the knot with Song Hye Kyo is rumored to be because of his career. Therefore, after getting married, the couple’s feelings towards one another no longer stayed the same.
Moreover, while Song Joong Ki was focusing on his activities in Korea, Song Hye Kyo was busy with schedules abroad. Like the saying, “Far from eye, far from heart”, their love story is only beautiful on-screen.
Song Hye Kyo once mentioned her plan of having children, expressing her willingness to go on hiatus for about 2-3 years to take care of her family. However, she was still seen in lots of projects and activities.
Many people thought that was the main reason for the couple’s breakup, but others found out from several sources claiming it was Song Joong-ki‘s disappointing attitudes and actions that led to their divorce.
It seems like Song Hye Kyo was really frustrated when Song Joong-ki raised his voice about their divorce first, so she deleted all photos of the two on her SNS. Song Hye Kyo was the first person to file for the divorce, but she didn’t reveal detailed reasons.
There were also opinions speculating that Song Joong Ki wanted to ruin Song Hye Kyo‘s image to get the advantages in dividing their assets. However, most netizens said it was unreasonable for Song Joong Ki to do so since he is also a top star in his career’s peak.
After their divorce, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo stayed silent. Song Hye Kyo left Korea and only announced her advertising activities on SNS. In addition, her next movie project is scheduled to premiere in 2022. Meanwhile, Song Joong Ki is still devoted to his acting career. The TV series “Vincenzo“, in which he plays the main character, became a hit and recorded high ratings.
Since the two already went on separate paths, fans also had to move on. However, the moments of Song-Song Couple will remain a good memory to K-Drama fans, especially to those who love “Descendants of the Sun“.
