Actor Song Joong-ki has filed for divorce from Song Hye-kyo after about two years of starry marriage.
In a press release, Song Joong-ki said Thursday morning that he submitted the paperwork to the Seoul Family Court the previous day.
"I would like to extend my sincere apologies for the unpleasant news to the fans who have supported me all along the way. I have decided to seek divorce from Song Hye-kyo," he said.
"Instead of pointing fingers… we both wish to complete the legal proceedings in an amicable way," he said. "I'd also like to ask for your understanding that I can't provide much detail since it is a private matter."
Shortly afterward, Song Hye-kyo also said through her management agency that they are parting ways due to "irreconcilable differences."
Rumors have been swirling about their impending divorce for some time after Chinese media noticed that Song Hye-kyo did not wear her wedding ring to a couple of press events.
The couple tied the knot in October 2017 after co-starring in the 2016 mega-hit series "Descendants of the Sun."
