As quick as their wedding announcement, came another announcement that had fans shookt: Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo have reportedly filed for a divorce on June 26, putting an end to their fairytale romance.
Joong Ki has since released a statement apologizing to his heartbroken fans and asking them to understand that it is “difficult at the moment to discuss the personal details of his life”. Hye Kyo for her part released a statement through her agency that the reason behind the split is because of “differences in personality” that the ex-couple “could not overcome.”

When the pair got married back on October 31, 2017, it was like the conclusion to a happily-ever-after movie, or in their case, a TV series. They starred in the 2016 hit K-Drama Descendants of the Sun and shortly after, announced that they were getting married. Fans of the series were overjoyed, rarely did it happen that the two lead stars in a drama got together in real life and actually end up getting married.
But with recent developments, maybe it’s time we heed Summer Finn’s (from 500 Days of Summer) words: “There’s no such thing as love, it’s a fantasy.”
Here are the most heartbreaking reactions from the internet:
Reminder: people change
never forget when song joong ki said:
“i care about my popularity so i decided not to get married not until song hye kyo came into my life & changed everything.”

Song-Song baby no more!
Love is more than what we see on the outside

We loved the Song-Song couple because more than the fact that we think they have chemistry, they actually look great together. A power couple that could turn heads out on the red carpet. But they broke up for personal irreconcilable differences meaning throughout the course of their marriage they probably discovered characteristics that annoyed the heck out of both of them. It’s what’s on the inside that counts most, kids.
Nuggets of wisdom from Twitter
Maybe its because of the hype, they are so overwhelmed that they take the plunge but then marriage is real life not something to play around.

Song Hye Kho also released an official statement. She stated that the Reason of their Divorce is due to their personality differences.

Because at least in the world of Descendants of the Sun, they’re still together.
The end of an era
#SongSongCouple you two are the reasons why i believed that on screen couple could be possible irl. your relationship, your engagement, your wedding, your vows and all the efforts will now become just a memory.
a once upon a time, without a happy ending.

Well that’s that. We can mope for days but at the end of everything, it’s still this couple’s life and not ours. Let’s just find another couple to ship, Shin Min Ah and Kim Woo Bin’s 4-year strong relationship for example:
After reading the news about Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s divorce, I don’t believe in forever anymore. #SongSongCouple broke my heart big time.
I just hope that Min Ah and Woo Bin wouldn’t break up. They’re my strongest couple. But if they split… alright, I’M DONE! pic.twitter.com/Uy0yEcuRvi
