“Given that the conclusion was made in a relative short period of time, I believe both sides reached an agreement on all conditions (for divorce) before actor Song raised the issue,” said a spokeman for the court, reported The Korea Times.

The settlement comes a month after actor Joong-ki filed to end his marriage to actress Hye-kyo. The couple, who met while filming the hit drama series Descendants Of The Sun in 2016, tied the knot in October 2017.

According to actress Hye-kyo’s agency UAA, there will be no division of property or settlement money.
