The divorce of 2 actors Song Hye Kyo – Song Joong Ki has affected the television series industry. The contract for participation in television dramas has now changed.
After the divorce of a couple song, the drama circle observed this sensitive situation and quickly took action. They claimed that it was impossible for a similar incident to recur. A "divorce" clause was added to the dramatic contract. A representative of the drama industry said, "Before Song Joong Ki's divorce was heard – Song Hye Kyo's divorce, in the drama contract compiled by both sides including the producer and the management company, was no disposition for divorce. , after the news of the divorce of the two was released, a divorce was added to the section of "personal reason" of the contract. If the scandals related to divorce arose after the contract was signed affects the work, the artist will have to pay up to 3 times the amount of contractual compensation. "
Before that, Song Joong Ki returned to the small screen after 3 years with the saga-drama drama "Arthdal Chronicles" (tvN). The actor has made a comeback after a period of not appearing in dramas since "Descendants of the Sun". It aroused greater interest among the public when Song Joong Ki reunited with PD Kim Won Suk, who once worked with him on the drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" (KBS 2TV), a huge production with a huge investment of up to 50 billion won. It was spectacular work that was in pre-production until part 3. However, its reach did not seem to match the names of the cast and the movie, as the rating only went between 6 and 7%.
But, the news of Song Joong Ki filing for divorce against Song Hye Kyo was reported on June 27 before episode 9 of "Arthdal Chronicles" was broadcast. Although the couple were getting a heartfelt congratulations, they decided to part ways only after almost 1 year and 8 months due to not being able to overcome personality differences. Both sides began divorces after a smooth agreement. On July 22, their marriage officially ended in divorce.
Incidentally, news of Song Joong Ki's divorce settlement shocked the public because his drama was on the air. "Arthdal Chronicles" has 18 episodes in total and is broadcast so that after the broadcast from the first half to part 2 (since episode 12) in the first half of the year, the rest (part 3) will be broadcast in the second half of the year. However, before the end of Part 2, Song Joong Ki shared his stance on the news of divorce and his personal event expanded throughout Korea. The event did not have a major impact on the audience rating of the on-air drama, but it could not have a positive impact on the play because his personal life was damaged. There is much more to be said about Song Joong Ki making a divorce announcement at a time when work is not yet over.[Ilgan Sports = Reporter Hwang So Young] [email protected]
