Sorry for the seemingly insensitive title. It’s just a take from the title my SongSong wedding entry, and it’s exactly what happened to them, anyway.
The news of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo calling it quits after only a year and a half of being husband and wife has to be the most shocking K-entertainment news in recent months. Yes, even more shocking than all the scandals being put up lately. Seriously, did anyone expect this to happen? I know there’s been rumors about their marital troubles since the beginning of the year with them not wearing their wedding rings and such, but it really sounded totally ridiculous that nobody took it seriously (well except, maybe, the Chinese press who’s been dishing them out). I mean, who in their right mind would conclude that not wearing wedding rings = divorce is on the way?
Then again, their neighbor based her theory on them not taking out their trash. What do I know.
Anyway… I think I’ve always been upfront that I’m not a SongSong Couple shipper. In fact, I see them as only having sibling vibes when I watched Descendants of the Sun. True confession: I’ve always thought that they look odd as a couple. I don’t see romantic love. But I’ve always chalked that up to me having a personal bias, being #BiKyoForLife and all that. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve moved on from BiKyo and has accepted that they’re nothing more than a once-upon-a-time onscreen couple. I just think that, maybe, it’s the inner BiKyo fan that made me not ride the SongSong train.
Apparently, I wasn’t totally wrong, after all. Agent P senses is still spot on. And I’m not happy about it.
I do pray that the couple will settle things amicably and the public will be more forgiving, especially on Hye Kyo who’s already being judged even if nobody outside of their inner circle knows what really transpired between the two. Because right now? That’s not what’s happening.
