Fans were left shocked when Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo announced their divorce in 2019, which is roughly two years since they tied the knot. The Descendants of the Sun lead stars cited personality differences as the reason for their split.
Previous reports suggested that Song Hye Kyo was surprised when Song Joong Ki announced their breakup. The 39-year-old K-drama actress, however, chose to remain tight-lipped about the details of their divorce at the time.
More than two years after the infamous Song-Song divorce, new details have spread online. A report claimed that a family member of Song Joong Ki does not support his split from Song Hye Kyo at all.
Who is this close family member? Keep on reading to know more shocking details about Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s divorce.
LoveKpop95 claimed that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s divorce did not sit well with the Arthdal Chronicles lead actor’s mother. The entertainment news outlet stated that Joong Ki’s mom practices Korea’s Confucian tradition, which explains why she does want her son and former daughter-in-law’s marriage to flourish.
It added that Mrs. Song considers the divorce of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo as her biggest regret in life. However, no enough pieces of evidence can prove that these claims are true up to this writing. So, these claims should be taken with a grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
Mr. Song, for his part, reportedly removed all traces of Song Hye Kyo from the home he maintained after learning about the infamous divorce. Reports claimed that Song Joong Ki’s dad was the last one to know about the split after hearing it through the media.
The Song patriarch was, reportedly, shocked by the turn of events that he shut himself off from everyone and did not leave his house for days. A close friend of Song Joong Ki’s father claimed:
“Song Joong Ki’s dad was happy the day before [when we were out drinking]. After the news hit, he won’t pick up his phone.”
Most, if not all, fans are aware that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, reportedly, divided up over $86 million in combined assets. The ex-couple had, allegedly, purchased a luxurious single house in Itaewon just a few months before they officially tied the knot.
It was even claimed that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo moved out of their honeymoon home months before their announcement. However, an unnamed source claimed, at the time, that the former lovebirds never moved into their marital home.
Meanwhile, Sports Chosun revealed, as reported by Koreaboo, that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo had begun living away from each other in September 2018, less than a year since their star-studded wedding. An unidentified source close to the couple said that the Vincenzo actor moved out of the house they were living in when he started working on Arthdal Chronicles.
Newsen, on the other hand, claimed that Song Hye Kyo had lost around 5 kilograms since the beginning of 2019 because of marital stress. The alleged weight loss, reportedly, caused her fingers to become too thin for her wedding band. An informant stated:
“In addition to her weight loss, her face looked darker and made me worry about her health. She is usually taciturn and doesn’t often talk about her inner thoughts but she recently cried while talking about the hardship related to her marriage life and it hurt my heart to see her that way.”
Another source claimed that Song Joong Ki had also experienced hair loss while filming Arthdal Chronicles because of personal stress. Because of that, staff members of the said K-drama speculated that Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were already having troubles at home at the time.
Neither Song Joong Ki nor Song Hye Kyo has addressed these undying rumors up until now. However, it is very palpable that the Descendants of the Sun stars are now in better places as they continue to enjoy their passion for acting and filming television and movie projects.
