Additionally, we would like to convey Song Joong Ki’s official statement,” he said.

First of all, I apologize for bringing bad news to everyone who loves and cares about me. I have arranged for my divorce with Song Hye-kyo. We both hope to settle the divorce process in a smooth manner, rather than attack and blame each other. Please understand that it is difficult to reveal the stories about our personal lives. From now on, I will try my best as an actor to repay everyone with good works.”
Reporting from Koreaboo, Park Jae-hyun said Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo will finalize their divorce through mediation, and the divorce could be finalized in as little as a month. Divorce proceedings are expected to begin this month. Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo will reportedly be dividing up over 100 billion Won ($86 million) in combined assets.

Out actress, Song Hye Kyo, is currently divorcing her husband after careful consideration between the two. The reason was because of their differences in personality. The two were unable to overcome their differences, which led to this decision. We politely ask for your understanding as we cannot confirm more details because it is both of the actors’ private lives. Please refrain from leaving provocative or speculative comments on the matter. We are sorry to cause worry. We will try our best to greet you all with a piece of better news in the future.

Rumor of Park Bo-gum as a Homewrecker
Before it was reported that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo would divorce, Song Hye-kyo starred in a drama titled Encounter with Park Bo-gum. After the drama, starring Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum, was finished, it was not long before the news about Song Joong-ki divorcing Song Hye-kyo surfaced. Of course, some people thought whether the cause of Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo’s divorce was Park Bo-gum?
In the drama, Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-kyo play a couple who are very romantic, even several times they have to do a kissing scene. However, this was denied by Park Bo-gum. Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-kyo are only friends and have no special relationship, therefore Park Bo-gum made a related statement about himself as a homewrecker between Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo.
“Encounter is not a romance between me and my best friend’s wife, but a romance between Kim Jin-hyuk and Cha Soo-hyun. We act and display our characters, so I just focus on describing my character,” he said. He continued, “One of the reasons why everyone praised Song Hye Kyo was because when she acted sad scenes, she spoke with her eyes. When I look into her eyes, I realize what people have been talking about. She really is like CEO Cha Soo-hyun, and because of that I can sink deeper into my role as Kim Jin-hyuk.”
Park Bo-gum will take strict legal action against anyone who accuses Park Bo-gum of being the cause of the divorce between Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo.

Let’s take a look!
Song Joong Ki And Song Hye Kyo To Reportedly Divide Combined Net Assets of Over 100 Billion Won
The surprising divorce of Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo involved the distribution of assets amounting to over 100 billion won. Reporting from Soompi, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo do not need to discuss childcare or custody, meaning that the division of wealth is all that needs to be settled. Channel A reported, “The fact that they applied for divorce mediation, not a divorce agreement, means that they failed to agree on certain details.”
In Song Joong-ki’s case, his value had skyrocketed just before his marriage to Song Hye Kyo, and he generated 40 billion won from filming advertisements alone. He also bought lots of real estate with the profits he made since his debut in the entertainment industry. He purchased a villa in Seorae Village, Seocho District, for 2.5 billion won and bought a 180-pyeong mansion in Itaewon, Yongsan District for 10 billion won. The 100-pyeong house in Itaewon was originally known as a newlywed house, but reports state that the two have never lived in the house.
Song Hye-kyo, who has been a top star for longer than Song Joong-ki, naturally possesses more wealth. She has three properties in the neighborhood of Samseong in Seoul. The home she purchased in 2004 for 5 billion won jumped to around 10 billion won at the current market price, and she purchased an additional luxury villa worth 3 billion won. She also purchased the house previously belonging to Dong-A Pharmaceutical’s former chairman for 9.2 billion won in 2017. Her three houses in the neighborhood of Samseong amount to a property value of 20.6 billion won.
Due to the short marriage period and the large amount of wealth that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo had prior to the marriage, the assets that the couple has jointly accumulated since marriage is expected to account for a small portion. Maeil Business Newspaper, therefore, predicts that they will agree on the division of property without any major conflict.
Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo Are Legally Divorced
In July 2019, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo officially divorced. Song Hye-kyo’s agency UAA released an official statement on the actress’s divorce, “Hello. This is UAA. Actress Song Hye Kyo’s divorce was finalized on July 22nd, 2019, at the Seoul Family Court. We inform you that the arbitration procedure was completed with both sides agreeing on a divorce without alimony or division of property.”
After filing for divorce on June 26th, both Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo released official statements asking for privacy during this time, with the latter stating the reason for the divorce as differences in personality and both hoping for an amicable divorce.
Well, let’s hope the best for Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo and let them live happily. Keep giving a lot of support and love.
