It hasn’t been two months since news broke that Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki were getting divorced, and another breakup is rocking the K-drama scene.
Yesterday, HB Entertainment, the agency of Korean actors Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun, announced that the two are splitting up.
Here’s an excerpt of HB Entertainment’s statement: “Despite the encouragement and expectations of many, the two actors recently reached a point where they felt they could no longer maintain their marriage due to various issues. And after a serious conversation, they both agreed to get a divorce.”
Ku Hye Sun, on her end, wrote on her Instagram account (translated by Soompi), “Though we were in the process of talking about a divorce, we had not signed or agreed on a final decision yet. The official statement was made without consulting me.”
She also posted a screenshot of messages she’s sent Ahn Jae Hyun. Translated, they read in part, "I don’t think it’s right for the agency to handle our divorce. And they stated that if I want it, they will terminate my contract, and I think it’s right for me to leave the agency. [But] I know that once I leave, rumors about a divorce would begin so I’m willing to get a divorce immediately, as you wanted. But if I leave the agency and we get a divorce, I will have no work so please send me the balance of our Yongin house. And let’s write down these promises with our lawyers and go through revisions on the divorce process. The reasons are the same as before. Your change of heart. Damage of trust. And I will accept that fact. Speak the truth. Send me the balance."
Fan account @goohyesun_84 posted translations of Ku Hye Sun’s other messy exchange with Ahn Jae Hyun. In their conversation, it looks like Ahn Jae Hyun is just waiting for her to sign the divorce papers. Meanwhile, Ku Hye Sun wants him to talk to her mom about their split, saying, “Meet [with] her and apologize to her for not keeping all of your vows during our marriage.”
Ahn Jae Hyun is prioritizing work over seeing his mother-in-law, making Ku Hye Sun call him a “jerk.”
Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun married in 2016, after a year of dating. They met on the set of Blood, a medical-fantasy drama that highlighted their chemistry, which won fans over.
