Song Hye-kyo's side files complaint against online haters over her divorce


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.

So two adults decide to divorce and of course the woman is the victim of malicious rumors... I wish I was surprised

I wonder if divorce is still considered a taboo in korea so that's why there’s this OTT reaction to the news, and people started to try to find some terrible underlying reason for it because it’s only supposed to be something you do as a last resort? Come to think of it you rarely hear about k-celebrity divorce news. Maybe they try to do it in secret without the public knowing but with the rate of shotgun marriages among korean celebs i’m surprised we don’t hear about divorce news more often

ppl really need to make better use of their time besides hating on ppl they don't even know and will never meet >_>

The thing about YouTube creators though, I agree if they just slander her, but if they’re more of a news channel, would it still count? Like the two dudes who reported on the Burning Sun incident at the beginning and YG threatened them and they ended up apologizing despite it turning out to bre true.

side-eyeing sjk right now. he contributed to the hate she's getting yet he's not stepping in to clarify anything. hope she moves onto someone hotter (which wouldn't be hard since he looks about 12 yrs old)

This ! Also, love how we se her even more stunning rn, being bewitching and nailing her professional life. I hope he is seething because the way he acted during this announcment was everything I needed to know about his character.

I'm glad she is defending herself.

On another note, I never saw her in anything (mainly because I don't really watch dramas anymore) but omg, she is insanely pretty oO.

urg this whole saga just re-enforces how misogynistic their society is. none of us know what went on behind closed doors but she's just been trashed left and right for no reason and his behaviour has also been sub-par during this episode. especially the whole announcing it while she was overseas and leaving vague statements that blame her. also when she's receiving all this heat he says nothing. trash.
i hope she comes back bigger and better and gets with someone hotter and richer. fuck him
