Korean couple Ahn Jae-hyun, 32, and Ku Hye-sun, 34, are headed for divorce just a little over three years after getting married.
Their plan became public after Ku Hye-sun posted on Instagram that her husband wanted to divorce her and she’s against it, contrary to a statement by their agency that the two mutually agreed to split.
“My husband has changed and wants to divorce but I want to protect this family. He said that he would announce the divorce news next week and I’d like to inform everyone that none of it is true. Hope the truth will be exposed,” the actress and director wrote, according to MyDaily and V Live.
She also uploaded screenshots of their conversation which revealed that they both agreed to divorce.
“I have talked to New Journey to the West’s side that I would publish the divorce agreement which you gave me three days ago with the press release next week,” Ahn Jae-hyun wrote in a text message to Ku Hye-sun, referring to the travel show wherein he is a regular cast member.
The actress replied, “Not next week, check on my mother before you do it. For me, she is more important than ‘New Journey to the West.'”
But the actor told her that “everything has been settled, now only the papers left to be resolved. The meeting is also meaningless so I will follow the plan. Then I’ll meet her later, I’ve called her already.”
She told him that “please be responsible and talk with mother about the divorce like you did when you asked for permission to marry me. Do you think work is more important than my mother? This is ridiculous.”
HB Entertainment, the couple’s agency, said, “After a serious conversation, they agreed to get a divorce,” according to 10 Asia and V Live.
”Recently, Ku Hye-sun appointed a lawyer to draft a divorce settlement and sent it to Ahn Jae-hyun while asking Ahn Jae-hyun to quickly designate a lawyer to handle the procedure. Ku Hy-sun said she wanted to file divorce mediation to the court in mid-August to finish the divorce around September.”
But the company noted that the actor and the agency were surprised about Ku Hye-sun’s Instagram post as she “had omitted the divorce settlement process which was conducted after the two’s serious discussion.”
Ku Hye-sun’s acting credits include “Boys over Flowers,” “Blood” and “Strongest Chil-woo” while Ahn Jae-hyun’s include “My Love from Another Star,” “The Beauty Inside” and also “Blood.”
They fell in love while filming “Blood” and got married on May 21, 2016.
