More than three years since they tied the knot, fans of famous Hallyu couple Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun were shocked on the recent post of the actress saying that his husband is seeking for a divorce.
In her now-deleted post on Instagram, the 34-year-old actress revealed a series of text messages that she exchanged with Ahn Jae Hyun, which appeared to indicate that the couple has already agreed to a divorce.
“After we lost our spark, my husband has had a change of heart and wants a divorce, and I want to stay married. (Next week, representatives of my husband will be releasing news reports, and I am informing you that they are completely untrue. I hope that the truth will come to light.)” she said in her caption.
On Monday, the couple’s talent agency HB Entertainment confirmed that the couple agreed to get a divorce in an official statement they released in light of the controversy.
“Hello, this is HB Entertainment.
We wish to give an explanation regarding the situation between our label actors Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun that was publicized today on August 18.
Despite the encouragement and expectations of many, the two actors recently reached a point where they felt they could no longer maintain their marriage due to various issues, and after a serious conversation, they both agreed to get a divorce.
As the agency of the two actors, we respected the decision they made after long and sincere talks over the past couple of months, and we hoped that they would lead happier lives separately in the future.
Ku Hye Sun recently appointed a lawyer and drafted a divorce agreement, which she then sent to Ahn Jae Hyun and requested that he also quickly appoint a lawyer and go through the necessary steps. Ku Hye Sun expressed that she wished to file for the divorce in August, and complete the divorce process by September.
And along with the divorce agreement, Ku Hye Sun sent over a draft of the statement she would be distributing to the press.
However, we came across an article earlier today that had Ku Hye Sun’s social media post [regarding the divorce] and both Ahn Jae Hyun and our agency were taken aback by it. As her post omitted the fact that the divorce was based on a mutual agreement after serious conversations, and simply stated that she did not want a divorce, we regrettably feel the need to explain the process despite this being their private life.
Though this is a part of their private life, we simply wish, as their agency, that neither side is hurt by this.
We apologize for causing concern to so many people.”
Along with the official statement, HB Entertainment included a screenshot of the drafted statement that Ku Hye Sun was planning on giving to the press after the news of the divorce was publicized, and the draft reads as follows:
“Hello, this is Ku Hye Sun.
First, I am deeply apologetic for bringing bad news to people who have loved me, and showed their support for my newlywed and married life.
Ahn Jae Hyun and I have agreed to end our marriage and we have started the process of filing for a divorce, and we submitted our request to divorce with the Seoul Family Court on August [date left blank], 2019. We have loved each other and been happy. However, we have also learned that there is a gap between us, and we wished to end things on happier terms before that distance widened, and we thought it would be best to walk our separate paths.
Regarding our divorce, as we each have our own personal lives and we will each continue our acting careers in the future, we ask that it be left as a personal matter and we wish for no baseless speculation or unnecessary misunderstandings.
I will work harder to repay your love with better projects and activities in the future.
From Ku Hye Sun.”
Meanwhile, Jae Hyun has yet to break his silence on the controversial breakup.
The two fell in love with each other at the set of their hit Korean drama ‘Blood.’
In May 2016, Hye Sun and Jae Hyun tied the knot.
