Actor Park Bo-gum “is not responsible” for Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo’s broken marriage, his agency said on Thursday, in a move to quell rumours circulating online that his “inappropriate relationship” with actress Song led to the couple filing for divorce.

Blossom Entertainment said it would take legal action against rumour mongers.

“Rumours are totally groundless,” an official said. “We won’t tolerate those spreading such malicious rumours.”

The official said the fact that Park recently starred in the Korean television drama Encounter with Song Hye-kyo, and their widely known friendship seems to have provided cause for such rumours.


The official said Park – who is a long-time friend of Song Joong-ki – was also “shocked” and “disappointed” by news of the break-up.

Earlier, Song Hye-kyo said “a difference in personalities” was the major cause of the split, while Song Joong-ki said he had sought a divorce settlement to ensure “peaceful termination of the marriage while avoiding a blame game against each other”.

Both sides did not provide further details.
