This is a photo of her with a fellow actor and actress from her current drama, Secret Mother, where she played a psychiatrist who had a husband and a son. The boy in this picture is the actor who portrayed the son, Kim Ye-joon.

Aside from giving updates about her current project, Song Yoon-ah also liked to post about her daily life, including her activities with her fellow actress friends. In the pictures above, Song Yoon-ah had a great time mingling with Lee Jung-hyun, Song Hye-kyo, Choi Ji-woo, Son Ye-jin, and many more. Indeed, our eyes have been blessed just by seeing these pictures!

Song Yoon-ah’s Wedding

Song Yoon-ah married her husband,  actor Sol Kyung-gu, in 2009. They held a private wedding, and there haven’t been a lot of pictures from the event made available. Since both of them are actors, it’s no surprise that they invited a number of fellow actors and actresses on their wedding.  Some of the guests were Jung Hye-young, Kim Hyo-jin & Yoo Jin-tae, Kim Tae-hee, Lee Soo-kyung, Gong Hyo-jin, Ryu Seung-beom, Cha Tae-hyun and his family, and many more. The guests dressed so nicely and most of them were waring black dresses and suits!


Married Life and Affair Rumor

Song Yoon-ah and her husband didn’t start getting closer until after working on the movie  Lost in Love, even though they had worked together on the drama Jail Breaker back in 2002. She once talked about her first impressions of her husband on an interview, saying that her husband looked scary and was never friendly towards her.

Regarding their married life, Song often got malicious comments from haters, saying that she is an adulteress and was the reason why Sol Kyung-gu and his previous wife divorced. The rumor started spreading for the first time just when their relationship was going public, and netizens assumed the couple had started their relationship when Sol Kyung-gu was still with his previous wife.

On September 7th, 2016, she replied the bad comments with a long caption on Instagram, “Sometimes I think (about) this. As they know… As they say… If I had been a woman who really lived this life, what would I be living by now? I want you to stop by now,” she wrote. She also said on the caption that she never talked about the rumor, nor claimed that it was true or not, because she believed that everything in life happened for a reason, and she did not ask everyone to understand.

Despite all of that, they had a little cute son who was born on August 3rd, 2010, named Sol Seung-yoon. She rarely posts about her son in public, maybe because she wants to preserve her son’s privacy. This picture that posted in 2016 was about her helping her son with his homework on Sunday.
