What a sad day for all Song-Song fans! The golden couple of Korean drama — Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo — is reportedly taking steps towards divorce. It wasn't long ago when the couple tied the knot after developing a romance while filming the hit series Descendants Of The Sun.
Back then, the blossoming romance of the couple was denied by their respective agencies but was eventually revealed to the public. Not everyone was pleased with the surprise announcement (some fans were devastated that their oppa will soon be a married man), but it's safe to say that the majority was ecstatic for the couple.
For a time, it looked like things were going well with Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo and their respective projects. Just last May, Song Joong Ki raved about how his wife is very supportive of him and his work for the new series Arthdal Chronicles.
Little did we know that we'll soon get another surprise from the couple — their split. Earlier this year, rumours of separation surfaced when Chinese tabloids started speculating about why the couple is not seen wearing their wedding rings. What happened? Here's what we know so far.
The reason for the split is due to "differences in their personalities"
In the official statement of Song Hye Kyo's agency regarding the divorce to Soompi, they cited that the differences between the couple's personalities are the reasons for the split and that the two "were not able to overcome their differences." Since both Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo are not seen on reality tv shows as often as some idols, we can't really say for sure what those differences are. Any theories?
