The 'Descendants of the Sun' stars have filed for divorce after two years of marriage

One of South Korea's fairytale celebrity romances has come to an unfortunate end, much to the heartbreak of fans around the world. Song Joong-Ki has officially filed for divorce from Song Hye-Kyo on 26 June after two years of marriage. The stars of Descendants of the Sun, the 2016 hit South Korean television drama, have both released their statements on the sad news.



Song Joong-Ki said that he "hopes that the divorce process can be wrapped up amicably, rather than denouncing one another and arguing over who is to blame". As for Song Hye-Kyo, she said through her management company, United Artists Agency, that "the reason is differences in personality, and because the two were unable to overcome their differences, they were forced to come to this decision". In any union, it is important to have personalities that match. #TakeItSlow.


News such as this are rare in the South Korean entertainment industry and therefore, this divorce can be surprising to many. Fans will have to wait to see what happens next. You are (not) my everything after all.
