2019 is indeed a controversial year for Kdrama and Kpop lovers. Shall we say it is the breakup year? After the recent divorce issue of Korean actress Song Hye Kyo and her former husband, Song Joong Ki, the Kdrama fans hope that the other Korean star couples will have a happy ending.
As if the heartache from the Song-Song couple divorce is not enough, Ku Hye Sun revealed another heart-wrenching news last August 18 after confirming that her husband, Ahn Jae Hyun, wanted a divorce.
The Supernatural Medical Drama: Blood
The 2015 South Korean drama Blood paved the way for the stars’ blossoming romance after they starred together in the hit series.
They played the roles of doctors Park Ji Sang (Ahn Jae Hyun) and Yoo Ri Ta (Ku Hye Sun). Here, Jae Hyun was a vampire doctor while Hye Sun was a chaebol’s niece who happened to be the hospital’s chairman.
Though he was a vampire, Jae Hyun believed in the sacredness of human life. To suppress his desire to kill, he took in blood capsules instead to satisfy his thirst for blood. In the end, he fell in love with Ri Ta.
After the series, dating rumors surfaced, and they confirmed the speculation on March 2016, one year after they starred in the blockbuster drama.
The couple has been in a relationship for a year when they confirmed their status. Two months after, on May 21, 2016, the two got married in an intimate wedding ceremony.
Eight months after their marriage, the couple starred in the reality TV series Newlywed Diary that aired from February to March 2017.
This show gave the public a glimpse of their married life. In fact, in one of its episodes, Jae Hyun revealed their first kiss as a couple.
Losing The Spark
In a guesting on the show Talk Nomad last September 21, 2018, Hye Sun expressed her wish to have their child take after her. So, who could have thought that the power couple will suddenly have a divorce?
The deleted Instagram post of Hye Sun stated that their relationship had ‘lost spark’ and that Jae Hyun wanted to divorce her when she did not want it all. She even shared some screenshots of their exchanged messages (now deleted) to add details to the issue.
Hye Sun’s Official Statement
Last August 20, Hye Sun’s legal representative released her first official statement about her divorce. She is represented by lawyer Jung Kyung Suk from the law firm LIWU Law Group.
The following is the official statement that the lawyer released:
As a law firm and Ku Hye Sun’s legal representatives, we are stating Ku Hye Sun’s official position on the issue of her divorce with Ahn Jae Hyun through this press release.
First, we would like to convey Ku Hye Sun’s regret at causing concern and worry to the fans who have watched over her entertainment career and her marriage.
While Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun have “discussed” their divorce, they never fully “agreed” to divorce. Currently, she has no desire to divorce, and we would like to clarify that there are no exterior causes for the marriage breakdown. A draft of the divorce agreement has gone back and forth between the two, but the document has never been signed and sealed.
Just as Ku Hye Sun herself revealed, it is true that she took steps to discuss divorce after receiving stress from Ahn Jae Hyun’s lack of interest in their marriage, his betrayal of her trust, and his frequent and intimate calls with other women while in a state of inebriation. However, after Ku Hye Sun’s mother received a psychological shock and her state of health worsened, and out of a desire to protect her family life, Ku Hye Sun stated clearly on Instagram that she has no desire for divorce. Her current feelings about her mother and her family have not changed.
Therefore, articles about Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun’s divorce being mutually agreed upon are completely false and without basis.
Moreover, Ku Hye Sun is no longer able to trust her agency, who one-sidedly managed their artist’s private life, and has confirmed that she can no longer work with them. We hope to terminate her exclusive contract with them as soon as possible. If her agency does not cooperate, then there will be no choice but to take legal action.
We hope that there will be no more speculative articles without any evidence published about Ku Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun’s divorce.
Ku Hye Sun once again conveys her regret at causing the public concern through her private affairs, and we will work to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
With an impending divorce on hand, what do you think will happen next to the couple? What other revelations do they have in the next days? Let us hold on until the next update.
