Song Joong Ki expresses strong love for his new wife and netizens respond: “Hypocrisy, he said the same thing to Song Hye Kyo before.”
Netizens everywhere have not reacted positively to Song Joong Ki’s recent sharing about his wife, Katy, because it is related to his ex-wife Song Hye Kyo.
On the morning of February 23, Song Joong Ki caused a stir with an interview with GQ magazine when he first spoke out about the rumors surrounding his wife Katy Louise Saunders. Accordingly, The Youngest Son of the Chaebol strongly denied rumors that Katy had been married and had a child. He said, “At first, I didn’t think much of those rumors. For people like us, that’s part of life. And no matter what, my love for Katy doesn’t change. But then the ridiculous rumors kept coming and it made me very angry.”
Song Joong Ki said that it was Katy who helped him balance his emotions: “Katy told me, ‘You don’t need to be angry with those people.’ It’s hard to describe in full, but she helped me see things more positively and helped me balance my emotions.”
As soon as the interview was published, Song Joong Ki’s sharing about his wife Katy received negative reactions from netizens everywhere. Many people think the actor is too “fake” when he speaks like that because in the past, he said similar things when referring to Song Hye Kyo when the two were still married. Some noteworthy comments from netizens on Weibo and Nate include: “He says the same thing to his current partner, and besides, hasn’t he already been married twice?” “Song Joong Ki is not respectable at all, he wears a innocent face but is fake,” “Everyone says that, it’s too fake” or “He said the same thing to Song Hye Kyo back then, and now we know.”
Netizens everywhere are annoyed with Song Joong Ki’s sharing about his new wife because they think he said the same thing when his ex-wife, Song Hye Kyo, was involved in unpleasant rumors in the past.
In the past, when Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were rumored to be getting divorced multiple times, the Song couple’s leading man did not hesitate to defend her: “Song Hye Kyo congratulated me on my new role, and she quietly encouraged me despite the rumors surrounding us. I am still concentrating on my work to complete the best performance.”
On another occasion, when Song Hye Kyo was implicated in rumors of having an affair with her junior, Park Bo Gum, Song Joong Ki strongly responded, “There have been many rumors affecting me and Song Hye Kyo recently. However, I can confirm that the rumors about Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum are false. If there are any further rumors like this, we will take strong legal action to cope with and protect those around us.” He also emphasized his unwavering love for his wife.
Despite the negative reactions from netizens, Song Joong Ki has continued to express his love for his wife Katy. In a recent appearance on the TV show “Youn’s Kitchen 3,” he revealed that he had taken on more domestic duties since getting married and expressed his appreciation for Katy’s support in his career.
He said, “I used to be quite carefree, but since getting married, I’ve realized the importance of taking responsibility and doing my part in the household. Katy has been a huge help in that regard, and I’m grateful to have her by my side.”
However, some netizens remain skeptical of Song Joong Ki’s sincerity, especially given his past statements about his ex-wife. They accuse him of being “two-faced” and “insincere,” and many are still critical of his relationship with Katy.
It remains to be seen how Song Joong Ki will continue to navigate his public image in the face of such criticism. However, it’s clear that his love for Katy is unwavering, and he seems determined to make their marriage work.
