Adoring fans of celebrity couples love hearing stories of how those lovers got together but, sadly, 2019 has been nothing but short of heartbreaking moments. As the year comes to an end, we have gathered the most shocking Asian celebrity break-ups this year. Whether the relationship was too short-lived, too dramatic or too peaceful, these goodbyes all took us by surprise. Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo We all love it when a romance goes from the screen to real life, and when the K-drama royal couple, known as “Song-Song” for their matching surnames, got together, they immediately captured our hearts. After all, they were a perfect couple in the television series Descendants of the Sun . The love story was so compelling that Taebaek city, where the series was filmed, even built a related theme park to attract love birds who want a long-lasting romance. Unfortunately, Song-Song proved happily ever after might be wishful thinking, and they announced their divorce in June 2019, just 20 months after their fairy tale-like wedding. Song Hye-kyo shares first Instagram post since divorce Fan Bingbing and Li Chen Before fans could get over the shock of Song-Song’s divorce, on the very same day, June 27, another couple surprised us with their split-up. Chinese stars Li Chen and Fan Bingbing announced their break-up on Weibo after being engaged for almost two years. Their posts went viral on the internet, with the related hashtag reaching millions of views within half an hour. This brought us back to four years ago, when the couple also shocked the public with a picture and a one-word caption, “Us”, announcing the beginning of their relationship. Just four years later, Fan wrote: “We will not be an ‘us’ any more, but we are still us.” Fan Bingbing’s top 5 most iconic film and TV roles Koo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun Despite our heartbreak, it’s nice to see loved ones break up in a peaceful manner, as the previous two couples did. The South Korean stars Koo Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun, however, went a different direction and turned their divorce into a nasty drama. The couple got married in 2016 and became a dream couple when they joined the reality show Newlywed Diary the following year, showing us that life after marriage can be sweet and romantic. As it turns out, though, reality shows are not real life; the couple suddenly announced their divorce and started trash-talking each other on Instagram for weeks . 4 of Song Joong-ki’s greatest screen roles Sean Zhang Liang and Kou Jing Another couple that made us question how real reality shows truly are is Sean Zhang and Kou Jing. Zhang displayed the image of an ideal husband in the 2013 family reality show Where Are We Going, Dad?, a tall and handsome model, a caring and patient dad and a loving husband with amazing cooking skills. Zhang was so desirable the Chinese online community nicknamed his wife of 12 years, the “woman who saved the galaxy in her last life”, indicating how lucky the public thought Jing was to be with such a man. But it seems it takes more than saving the galaxy to make a marriage last, since Zhang announced in November 2019 they had been divorced for two years already. Before Song-Song couple: who were Song Hye-kyo’s other alleged lovers? Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan and Oksana Voevodina When Sultan Muhammad V, ruler of Malaysia’s Kelantan state, gave up his throne for his wife, former Miss Moscow Oksana Voevodina, the unlikely union sounded much like a fairy tale coming true and we were ready to put our faith in royal romance again. Disappointingly, their happily ever after came to a halt, and half a year later the former Malaysian king announced divorce amid circulation of Oksana’s alleged “sex in the pool” video, and even cast doubts on the identity of their newborn son. The fairy tale quickly turned into another royal scandal. 5 things to know about Rihana Oksana Petra, wife of Malaysia’s king Kai and Jennie View this post on Instagram ☁️ Deleting bad comments so don’t even try A post shared by ˗ˏˋ- (@maynip_blackexo) on Dec 8, 2019 at 1:05am PST It is hard enough for fans to accept an idol’s relationship, especially when both parties are K-pop stars. And so the relationship of Kai, member of boy band Exo , and Jennie, member of girl group Blackpink, made fans go wild. As shocking as their romance was, their soon-to-follow break-up was even more surprising – they called it quits after just 25 days. Their coupling was too short to make us truly sad, but the media attention Korean stars had made us wonder if publicity kills celebrity relationships. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
