Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo announced their divorce recently. The lovely South Korean star couple’s announcement regarding the split came out as a shock. For it was definitely in the list of the least expected events that will take place this year. However, the news not only brought the stardom engulfed couple to the spotlight but also highlighted the issue of the division of their assets.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo failed to reach an any-mutual decision regarding their wealth distribution
If certain reports are trusted then their total asset comes out to be around 100 billion won. If we are talking in terms of dollars then it is approximately 86.5 million US dollars. Since the actors do not have to worry about child custody and care, money seems like the only thing that will split between them.

The couple is speculated to have asked for divorce mediation instead of a divorce agreement. Well, it only added more fuel to the already blazing fire of their asset division. It appears like there are areas in which the couple have failed to come to a decision and ergo wants outside assistance. Playing fair and square.
How far will this battle of the South Korean star couple go??
Song Joong Ki as reported by Maeil Business Newspaper had his value catapulted just before his marriage. He is anticipated to have mustered 40 billion won alone from working in advertisements. He had invested his profits in umpteen real estates and even purchased a villa in Seorae Village. It is believed to have cost him 2.5 billion won and is located in Seocho District.
He even brought mansion in Itaewon whose net worth was 10 billion won. It is rumored that the mansion was intended to serve as a newlywed house. However, the couple never moved in to live together there.
Maeil Business Newspaper also revealed the status of Song Hye Kyo. The South Korean actress has been drenched in stardom and fame for a longer period of time than her husband. Ergo she has accumulated much more wealth.

Let’s see if the couple can come to a mutual agreement before things get more heated up.
