End for ‘Song-Song couple’ as South Korean TV stars seek divorce

A military romance, The Descendants of the Sun garnered billions of views on video-streaming sites in China and captivated audiences from Hong Kong to Hanoi with its simple but heart-rendering storyline.

In a statement released by her management agency, Song Hye-kyo cited "differences in personality" for the breakdown in their relationship without going into further details. An online survey of fans showed that fans had wanted the couple to become actual lovers in the real world.

Fans mourned the end to the high-profile love story. They announced their engagement in July and tied the knot in October the following year. But the sun seems to have set on the relationship.

According to several Chinese websites, a source has confirmed that the Song-Song couple's marriage was on the rocks because Song Joong-ki allegedly had an affair with Song Hye-kyo's best friend as well as stylist.

Meanwhile, Song Hye-kyo's label UAA Korea also released a statement announcing the reasons for the split.

"The reason is a personality difference, and the two sides inevitably made this decision, unable to overcome their differences", the agency said. The decision came because the pair could not overcome the difference.

UAA Korea added that it can not reveal more details of the celebrities' personal matters. We ask for your understanding about this. The agency asked for understanding regarding the actress' personal life and for people to refrain from speculative reports. We apologise for fuelling worries.

Nonetheless, we wish the two good luck on whatever individual endeavors they end up doing in the near future. Joong Ki also posted that he thanks all his fans for the love and support.

"Rumors about Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-kyo are absolutely not true", the official said. "I hope we can smoothly get through this process rather than shifting blame or picking at each other's faults".

His statement requested the fans to understand the recent development of his life and stand by him. I ask for your understanding that it is hard to tell you about my personal life, and I will recover from this current wound and do my best to repay you with good productions in future.
