Actress Song Hye-kyo said Thursday she has filed a lawsuit against those who allegedly defamed her and spread false information about her divorce from actor Song Joong-ki.
UAA, her agent, released a statement saying it has taken legal action with Bundang Police Station in Gyeonggi Province.
"After collecting evidence, we filed a complaint against rumormongers who made false accusations and malicious slander against Song Hye-kyo," it said. "We will also sue all YouTube creators and online users when securing the evidence."
Kim & Chang, Korea's largest and the most prominent law firm, is representing Hye-kyo.
"The groundless rumors and malicious comments have inflicted unbearable pain on Hye-kyo," UAA said.
Meanwhile, the Seoul Family Court approved the divorce settlement for Hye-kyo and Joong-ki on July 22, 25 days after Joong-ki sought it.
The pair met through the pan-Asian TV series "Descendants of the Sun" in 2016 and tied the knot in October 2017.
