He was too pretty for her?

Am a big fan of Korean film and tv. Never got around to watching this one, but will look for it. Doesn't seem to be on Netflix.

Reality set in and asserted itself as qualitatively different from a Hallyu romantic drama.

Well at least they could recognize it and will avoid living a lie.

Isn't it considered bad luck or taboo in Korea to marry someone with the same surname? Maybe that somehow led to their breakup.

No, it's all right as long as it can be determined that the bride and groom don't come from the same ancestral village. There are probably millions of couples in which both husband and wife are surnamed Kim, but it's not considered a taboo for the reason stated.

How is this even news?

Meh.  another ridiculous short celeb marriage.  We have seen so may here in Japan also.  "Song Song" my a##.

If (and that's a big if) I were a fan I would be happy about this.  Time for some weird stalker (s) to track them down.

Who?

They both look like teenagers. She cannot be 37 unless she has

had many sessions with the plastic surgeons.

@zichi Oh Zichi-san, you are completely out of touch with youth culture! Even here in Japan, there will be young Japanese crying ove this. Especially over in the Shinokubo Koreatown. (Personally, I don't particularly like K-Pop that much, but I love the food in Koreatown.)

There's just so much more important events happening across the globe. Maybe this post should be on a youth oriented rag then! Even when I was a youth these stories never got my attention.

Considering how many people have the same surname in Korea, that would be a pretty unreasonably restriction.

Marry in haste repent at leisure. This kind of news may mean their downfall as new 'cleaner image stars 'replace them. It's a fickle world out there

South Korea might be the plastic surgery capital of the world BUT Asian women have a well earned reputation in keeping their looks a lot longer than women of other nationalities.

Probably married under contract as a publicity stunt.

She too beautiful for pretty boy!

She needs to be in the arm of manly guy but it's hard to find in S. Korea unless she doesn't care about looks, like Song Kang Ho and Choi Min-Sik.
