Song Joong Ki’s Decision to Have His Wife Give Birth to Their Son in the UK Instead of Choosing South Korea
According to QQ, an acquaintance has revealed that actor Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders, his wife, have planned for the birth of their first child. It is said that the couple intends to have the baby in the UK, which is Katy Louise Saunders’ home country, instead of in South Korea.
The reason given is that Song Joong Ki wants to protect his wife and child from the scrutiny of the South Korean media. Song Joong Ki is always aware that his actions will be the focus of the media’s attention, so this is a way for him to protect his wife and son from the media.
According to Koreaboo, Song Joong Ki’s wife is 1.7 meters tall, with a British father and a Colombian mother. She was born in 1984 in London, UK, into a Catholic family. Throughout her childhood, she frequently moved between different regions in the UK and Italy due to her father’s job. She graduated with a degree in business administration from Bocconi University, one of the top private schools. The beauty also studied acting at an expensive art center.
She entered the film industry at the age of 18, with a role in the Italian romantic drama “Un viaggio chiamato amore” (A Journey Called Love) in 2002, directed by Michele Placido. The film is based on a true story, depicting the painful relationship between feminist writer Sibilla Aleramo and poet Dino Campana. She played the young version of the character Sibilla Aleramo.
In 2004, she starred alongside Riccardo Scamarcio in the film “Step in Tre metri sopra il cielo” (Three Steps Over Heaven). The beauty portrayed a social activist who falls in love with a bad boy. The film, directed by Luca Lucini, is based on the novel by Federico Moccia.
In 2007, she won the Student Jury Award for Best New Actress for her role as Giulia Farnese in the film “Los Borgia”. In addition, she has appeared in supporting roles and guest appearances in films such as “The Lizzie McGuire Movie,” “Virgin Territory,” “Law & Order,” and more. In 2011, she showcased her dancing skills by playing an ambitious dancer in the series “Non smettere di sognare” (Follow Your Dreams). Her most recent films include “Conder,” “The Scorpion King: Book of Souls,” and “Welcome Home,” all released in 2018.
Katy Louise Saunders has currently left the entertainment industry and works as a foreign language tutor. She keeps a low profile and rarely updates her life on social media. According to the South Korean media, she was Song Joong Ki’s teacher during the time he filmed “Vincenzo.”
