“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 divorce.

“The reason [for the divorce] is differences in personality and 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 couple met while playing leads in the hit drama “Descendant of The Sun”  in 2016.

They tied the knot in a high-profile wedding on October 31, 2017 in Seoul after previously denying rumors that they were in a relationship in real life.
