Song Hye-kyo on divorce: 'Differences in personality'

MANILA, Philippines – Korean actress Song Hye-kyo on Thursday, June 27, cited "differences in personality" for her mutual decision with husband fellow actor Song Joong-ki to part ways. 

"We find it unfortunate that we are greeting you with unhappy news. After careful consideration, actress Song Hye Kyo and her husband are taking the first steps toward a divorce," Song Hye-kyo said in a statement released through her agency United Artists Agency (UAA) Korea. 

"Because the two were unable to overcome their differences, they were forced to come to this decision. We respectfully ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that we cannot confirm any further details out of respect for the two actors’ personal lives. Additionally, we urge you to refrain from making scandalous posts and speculative comments," the statement added. 

Song Joong-ki, through his lawyers, filed for divorce from Song Hye-kyo on Wednesday, June 26. 

The Song-Song couple married in 2017 following the wildly successful Descendants of the Sun. –
