The 33-year-old actor’s attorney confirmed the news on Thursday (June 27) in South Korea.
“Our law firm filed for divorce on behalf of Song Joong Ki at the Seoul Family Court on June 26. Additionally, we would like to convey Song Joong Ki’s official statement,” the lawyer announced.
The statement reads as follows: “Hello. This is Song Joong Ki. First, I’d like to apologize for delivering this unfortunate news to the many fans who love and care for me,” he wrote.
I have begun the process of filing for divorce from Song Hye Kyo. Rather than denouncing one another and arguing over who is to blame, I hope that the divorce process can be wrapped up amicably. I ask for your understanding in regards to the fact that it is difficult to discuss the details of my personal life, and I will recover from my current wounds and do my utmost as an actor to repay you through great productions in the future. Thank you.”
The two got married in October of 2017 after co-starring in their 2016 South Korean television series Descendants of the Sun.
