Song Joong Ki closes the month of January with a bang! The internationally-acclaimed star announced his marriage with British partner, former actress Katy Louise Sanders. Apart from that, the couple is also expecting!
But while the Hallyu scene is thrilled with the news, many avid fans of the actor remained indifferent and here's why.
Wedding bells just rang for Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Sanders!
On January 30, the "Reborn Rich" actor announced that he has finally tied the knot with his British partner, former actress Katy Louise Saunders, much to fans' surprise.
The couple confirmed their romantic relationship in December 2022, which became a hot topic not only in the Hallyu scene but also in the overseas channels.
Song Joong Ki's remarriage brought delight to fans all over the world. His avid supporters congratulated him on his newfound love.
However, some of the fans refuse to put on a happy face for the actor.
These fans have been with Song Joong Ki since his rookie days, and celebrated with him during his romantic tryst with ex-wife Song Hye Kyo.
"My Joong Ki phase has come to an end," one fan wrote, pertaining to how Song Joong Ki allegedly left Song Hye Kyo to be targeted by the media during their divorce in 2019.
Another fan stated their disappointment, saying, "Not to be that person but I cannot watch his dramas anymore after he divorced Song Hye Kyo while she was abroad."

However, some of the fans still defended Song Joong Ki. Some fans also mediated the online commotion as fans would never see the other side of the coin, especially when things as sensitive as marriage and divorce are never fully publicized.
Despite the surprise, fans congratulate Song Joong Ki, and wish happiness to the newly wedded couple.
On the other hand, Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders registered their marriage to the British Embassy in South Korea on January 31.
