On the other hand, it seems that divorce makes many people sad, including Song's father Joong Ki and Song Yong Gak.
Song Yong Gak reportedly sent a text message to his friends about 8 days after news of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's divorce spread. Quoted from Koreaboo, the message contained his apology and little reason why the divorce took place, in which he blamed himself and his son.
"I apologize for the sudden bad news. Like everything lacks me and Joong Ki. We will end everything well," Yong Gak wrote in his message".
"Please give us a lot of support, guidance and keep an eye on us. Have a healthy and happy day," he added."
Song Yong Gak is known to show his affection for Song Hye Kyo. In addition, he once sent a message to his friends promoting the play played by his former son-in-law.
"Hello! Song Joong Ki's father, Song Yong Gak. Our beautiful daughter-in-law Song Hye Kyo will star in a new drama called Encounter with Park Bo Gum. It premiered on November 28 at 9:30 p.m. on tvN. Predicted to show chemistry where it has never been seen before and has been flattered as Korean drama is great and full of emotional," Yong Gak said in his message.
"Because this was his first project after Descendants of the Sun and his marriage, he devoted himself to drama. Please watch the broadcast and spread the word! I hope my son-in-law's drama goes well and she can become a beloved actress around the world. This is my wish as an in-laws. May always stay healthy and happy. Thank you," he said."
Shortly after the news release of the divorce, it was reported that Song Yong Gak did not know about the divorce until it was reported to the media. But another source reported that he was very likely to have known about it in advance.
Summarized from various sources, Song Yong Gak had been out drinking with his friends before the news of the divorce was released. They stated that he did not talk much and drank more, and behaved differently than usual.
In addition, Song Yong Gak has since locked himself inside his house, not leaving after news of the divorce came out. However, she revealed to the media on July 6 that she was actually in hospital to undergo eye surgery and that was the reason she found it difficult to contact him.
