Song Joong Ki To Take Short Break From Activities Following Divorce Announcement

Joong-ki first released a statement in which he apologizes to his fans.

"Blossom Entertainment reportedly said: "Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo have come to this decision to end their marriage after a serious discussion, and they are undergoing the legal procedures for divorce after an amicable settlement".

Rumors have been swirling about a rift between the couple, . after Chinese media reported that Song Hye-kyo had been spotted in public without her wedding ring on. Song Hye Kyo posted that they just can't seem to match their thinking.

On Thursday (June 27), Song Hye-kyo's label UAA Korea blamed personality differences for the breakdown in her marriage.

As the story sparked rampant rumors and gossips, UAA took a defensive attitude, urging media outlets to refrain from "provocative reports and speculative comments" on matters related to the privacy of the Song-Song couple.

"Both of us hope to settle the divorce process in a smooth manner, rather than debating wrongdoing and blaming each other", he added.

"I ask for your understanding for the difficulties in elaborating on private affairs, but I will repay everyone with good (acting) projects by breaking out of this wound and doing my best in acting", he also said.

The reason for divorce is a difference in personality. "Hyena" was simply one of the several scripts she was considering, and it was a drama that she had already turned down", the agency stated. Another disappointed fan tweeted, "Because of you I used to believe in forever".

The 33-year-old actor tied the knot with his 37-year-old partner in October 2017 after appearing together as leading actors in the sensational 2016 drama series "Descendants of the Sun". Right now, Song Joong-Ki is starring in an epic fantasy K-drama exclusive on Netflix, Arthdal Chronicles. Song Joong Ki was previously confirmed to star in "Lightning Ship", a science fiction film set in the backdrop of the universe. "I feel like all married people would understand this feeling".
