Goo Hye-sun Reveals Shocking News that Ahn Jae-hyun wants to Divorce
The public really loves Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Hye-sun and portrays them as a beautiful couple and as a proof that true love exists since their marriage in May 2016. The two of them have always been lovey-dovey with each other and Ahn Jae-hyun has been so smitten by her. She spoke greatly of him when her latest novel Tears Are Heart-Shaped was released on July 20th, 2019, also thanked him for always supporting her career as a novelist: “I feel thankful for my husband because he’s so calm even though the person he’s married to released a romance novel. Most people wouldn’t like it, so I was really thankful.”
On June 3rd, 2019, Goo Hye-sun even signed with the same agency as Ahn Jae-hyun, HB entertainment, and the public thinks the couple is growing stronger than ever.
So, what went wrong in the short span of time that changed everything?
Early in the morning of August 18th, 2019, Goo Hye-sun went to Instagram to share a message about her marriage. Goo Hye-sun announced that her husband, Ahn Jae-hyun, is seeking a divorce. She wrote:
After we lost our spark, my husband has had a change of heart and wants a divorce, and I want to stay married. (Next week, representatives of my husband will be releasing news reports, and I am informing you that they are completely untrue. I hope that the truth will come to light.)
– Goo Hye-sun
Goo Hye-sun shared a collection of text messages exchanged between her and Ahn Jae-hyun about their imminent divorce. Later that morning, the actress returned to Instagram to post what appears to be a text message discussion between the two spouses. The discussion, which is cut off in part, seems to disclose that Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Hye-sun have already agreed to divorce. Throughout the text messages, Ahn Jae-hyun speaks to Goo Hye-sun in a formal speech, while Goo Hye-sun speaks to Ahn Jae-hyun in an informal speech.
Here’s the conversation that Goo Hye-sun revealed:
A: I informed the employees of the New Journey to the West the day before yesterday that I was going to release the [divorce] agreement and the press release you gave me next week three days earlier, and I’m presently negotiating it with [the employees of the New Journey to the West].
Goo Hye-sun: No, not next week. Depending on how my mom’s doing.
Goo Hye-sun: My mom’s condition is more important to me than New Journey to the West.
A: We have already reached an agreement, and the paperwork is all that remains. It’d be a pointless meeting, I believe. Let’s move on as planned, and I’m going to meet your mom.
A: I called her on the phone, too.
Goo Hye-sun: I heard you were planning to meet. When you meet, contact me.
Goo Hye-sun: Just as when we got married you convinced her, take responsibility and convince her of our divorce. It’s not difficult to do paperwork.
A: … and I don’t believe that sorting out will be simple. I think your mother’s going to be overwhelming, and I’m overwhelmed as well. Let’s continue with stuff as planned, and [another time] I’ll meet her.
Goo Hye-sun: Does work matter more than my mother?
Goo Hye-sun: What a ludicrous talk this is.
A: I’m going to telephone your mom.
A: I personally don’t understand what to say to her.
Goo Hye-sun: But you are still supposed to take accountability. I won’t stand by and watch if you behave callously like this.
Goo Hye-sun: Meet her in person and apologize… because when we got married you couldn’t maintain your commitments.
Goo Hye-sun: Why is work important? If you say that work is more important than my mom, then I’m not really going to hold back.
“My mom got really shocked and is not in excellent health,” the actress added in the caption, “which is why I posted these phrases. I’m sorry.”
What a piece of heartbreaking and shocking news! We always thought they’re such a perfect couple and gonna last, but who would have known this is how they’re gonna end. What do you guys think about it?
Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Hye-sun’s Agency, HB Entertainment, Releases an Official Statement
Goo Hye-sun and the agency HB Entertainment of Ahn Jae-hyun have published an official statement on the marriage status of the couple which reads as follows:
Hi, this is HB Entertainment.
We would like to explain the circumstance between our label artists Goo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun, which was announced today, on August 18th.
Despite the encouragement and expectations of many, the two artists lately reached a point where they thought they could no longer keep their marriage due to different problems, and both decided to get a divorce after a severe discussion.
As the two actors’ agency, we respected the decision they made in the past couple of months after long and sincere talks, and we hoped that in the future they would lead happier lives separately.
Recently, Goo Hye-sun hired an attorney and drafted a divorce agreement, which she then sent to Ahn Jae-hyun, requesting that he also appoint a lawyer quickly and take the required measures. Goo Hye-sun said she wanted to file in August for the divorce and finish the divorce process by September.
And together with the divorce contract, Goo Hye-sun sent a draft statement that she was going to publish to the media.
Earlier today, however, we came across an article that had Goo Hye-sun’s social media post [related to the divorce] and it has taken aback by both Ahn Jae-hyun and our agency.
Since her post omitted the fact that after severe discussions the divorce was based on a mutual agreement and merely indicated that she did not want a divorce, we regrettably feel the need to explain the process despite this being her personal life.
While this is part of their personal lives, we merely wish, as their agency, that this does not harm either side.
We apologize for so many individuals being concerned.
HB Entertainment included a screenshot of the drafted statement that Goo Hye-sun was planning to give to the media after the divorce news was published, along with the formal agreement, and the draft reads as follows:
Hi, this is Goo Hye-sun.
First of all, I am deeply apologizing for bringing bad news to people who loved me and showed support for my newlywed and married life.
Ahn Jae-hyun and I decided to end our marriage and we began the divorce filing process and on August [date left blank], 2019, we presented our divorce request to the Seoul Family Court. We loved each other and were happy with each other. We also discovered, however, that there is a gap between us, and we wanted to finish things more happily before that gap widened, and we believed it would be best to walk our separate routes.
As far as our divorce is concerned, as we each have our own private life and each of us will continue our careers in the future, we ask that it be left as a private matter and we do not wish for unnecessary speculation or misunderstandings.
I’m going to work harder with better future projects and events to repay your love.
From Goo Hye-sun
Goo Hye-sun has shared her stance on her Instagram account since the release of HB Entertainment’s explicit statement. She wrote the caption, “I was in a hurry yesterday to upload what I did because I was expecting today to make formal statements. Although we were discussing divorce, we had not yet signed or agreed on a final decision. Without consulting me, the formal agreement was made. I want to protect my family.”
Another text message she sent to Ahn Jae-hyun is the picture she shared, and the first one reads, “You’re on a call. Call me back.” at 1:40 a.m. KST. Goo Hye-sun sent the following text at 2:02 a.m. KST and the following reads:
It states that at this hour your line is still busy. I met and spoke today with our managing director and I was told you told the managing director that I had read KakaoTalk messages from you and the managing director badmouthing me and that my faith in our marriage and our agency was harmed. I don’t believe that handling our divorce problem is right for the agency. And they said they’re going to end my contract if I want it, and I believe it’s okay for me to leave the agency. I understand that rumors about divorce would start once I leave, so I’m ready to get a divorce right away, as you wanted. But if I leave the agency and we get a divorce, I’m not going to have a job so kindly give me our Yongin house balance.
The post on Instagram was removed at 7 p.m. KST.
HB Entertainment denied rumors that their contract with Goo Hye-sun has been terminated
Sports Donga revealed on August 18th that HB Entertainment had removed from their official website the profile picture of Goo Hye-sun, which meant that the agency was in the process of parting ways with her.
An HB Entertainment source replied to the news and said, “The reports that we have ended our exclusive contract with Goo Hye-sun are not accurate. Our contract is intact. We have not deleted her profile picture and her portal site profile has stayed intact.” They continued to clarify, “Since we last updated our official website, it’s been over a year.”
As Goo Hye-sun signed on with HB Entertainment last June, they had never uploaded her image to the official website to start with, explaining why it wasn’t there, according to the words of the source.
Goo Hye-sun’s legal representative releases an official statement
The legal representative of Goo Hye-sun released her first official statement on her divorce on August 20th, 2019.
As a law firm and legal representative of Goo Hye-sun, through this press release, we state the official position of Goo Hye-sun on the problem of her divorce with Ahn Jae-hyun.
First, we would like to express the regret of Goo Hye-sun to the fans who have watched her entertainment career and her marriage, causing concern and distress.
While their divorce was “debated” by Goo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun, they never fully “agreed” with divorce. She has no intention to divorce at the moment and we would like to make it clear that there are no external causes for the breakdown of the marriage. A draft agreement on divorce went back and forth between the two, but the paper was never signed and sealed.
Just as Goo Hye-sun revealed herself, it is true that she took measures to discuss divorce after being stressed by Ahn Jae-hyun’s lack of interest in her marriage, his betrayal of her trust, and his frequent and intimate calls with other females while in a state of inebriation. However, after the mom of Goo Hye-sun got a psychological shock and deteriorated her state of health, and out of a willingness to safeguard her family life, Goo Hye-sun obviously indicated on Instagram that she had no intention for divorce. Her mom’s and family’s emotions have not altered at the present.
Therefore, articles on the mutually agreed divorce of Goo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun are totally incorrect and unfounded.
In addition, Goo Hye-sun can no longer trust her agency, which has unilaterally managed the personal life of their artist and has confirmed that she can no longer work with them. We hope that her exclusive contract with them will be terminated as quickly as possible. If her agency doesn’t collaborate, there’s no option but to take legal action.
We hope that without any proof released about the divorce of Goo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun, there will be no more speculative articles.
Goo Hye-sun once again expresses her regret that her private affairs have caused public concern, and we’ll work to solve the problem as quickly as possible.
It’s getting messier, what do you guys think about this situation?
