Yesterday, on July 12, Korean actress Song Hye Kyo was photographed enjoying dinner with award-winning actress and director Natalie Portman and Russian supermodel and philanthropist Natalia Vodianova.
According to W Korea’s Instagram account, the three were in Monaco for an exhibit opening of Chaumet, a luxury French jeweler established in 1780.
Unfortunately, the Encounter actress is being bashed by netizens for attending parties—even if they’re for work. Allkpop.com shared (and translated) posts about her.
“I hope she’ll focus on making herself beautiful on the inside more than [the] outside…” reads one.
Another says, “Divorce isn’t a crime but how can you smile and try to look pretty as if nothing happened. IDK. They may say she’s beautiful on the outside but she doesn’t look beautiful on the inside to me.”
“She looks like she’s crazy for money,” remarked another.
While legal in Korea, divorce is still considered taboo. This could be why critics can’t appreciate that Song Hye Kyo is being professional and could be trying to move on.
Another could be how Song Joong Ki is doing the opposite: He'll be taking a break—and somehow Song Hye Kyo is expected to do the same.
Last week, Song Joong Ki's agency Blossom Entertainment announced, "For the time being, Song Joong Ki will be taking time off for himself without [attending] official events." But he will be filming Lightning Ship, a science fiction movie, this month.
