Just recently, it was reported that A-list Korean couple, Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo were going through a divorce. The news came as a shock to fans, especially those who really pushed for their relationship after the success of K-drama, Descendants of the Sun.
Representatives for both Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo have now come forward asking people not to write malicious comments and rumors about the split.
However, that hasn’t stopped allegations spreading that Park Bo-Gum is the reason for the Song-Song’s couple’s divorce.
Now Bo-Gum’s agency, which happens to also be Song Joong-Ki’s agency, are taking a legal stand against such comments and rumors.
Song Hye-Kyo’s ‘other’ man
The rumor that Park Bo-Gum was responsible for the split started to spread after it was announced that Song Joong-Ki had filed for divorce from Song Hye-Kyo.
It comes after Bo-Gum played the leading man in Encounter (also known as Boyfriend), Hye-Kyo’s comeback K-drama after her marriage to Joong-Ki.
Though Encounter wasn’t as impactful as Descendants of the Sun, it was overall a major success earning double-digit viewership ratings domestically in South Korea and a lot of international love and appeal on streaming services.
The chemistry between Song Hye-Kyo and Park Bo-Gum was so good, some people started questioning if there was “something going on between the two.” Most however rationalized that both were simply really good at their jobs as actors. With Hye-Kyo’s divorce, however, the rumors started.
Blossom Entertainment takes a stand
Park Bo-Gum has made it known that he had nothing to do with the Song-Song couple’s divorce. However, with the allegations continuing, Blossom Entertainment says it is now taking legal action on the matter.
