Meet Katy Louise Saunders, Song Joong-ki’s Girlfriend
Katy Louise Saunders, born in London, England on July 21, 1984, to a British father and Columbian mother, is 38 years old and only a year older than her husband, Song Joong Ki.
Katy Louise Saunders started her acting career in the 2002 Italian film “A Journey Called Love” directed by Michele Placido. The movie, based on a real story, follows the tumultuous relationship between writer Sibilla Aleramo and poet Dino Campana. Saunders played a younger version of Sibilla Aleramo, portrayed by Laura Morante.
The management team for the South Korean singer acknowledged on Monday (Dec. 26) that Song Joong-ki is seeing a non-famous British woman. The Korean media indicates that the couple has been dating for almost a year after meeting through a common friend.
Why Did Song Joong-Ki Divorce His Ex-Wife Song Hye Kyo?
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, affectionately known as the “Song Song pair,” met on the set of their hit drama Descendants of the Sun and went on to have a fairytale romance. After wrapping up filming on their drama, the on-screen couple apparently began dating in real life.
Despite frequent public sightings in cities like New York and Bali, our Song-Song couple maintained their relationship’s secrecy for quite some time. Their respective agencies announced Joong Ki and Hye Kyo’s upcoming October wedding in July 2017.
After a seemingly perfect romance, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo split up citing irreconcilable differences in character. After getting married in October 2017, Song Joong Ki stated in 2019 that he was filing for divorce from Hye Kyo.
Song Hye Kyo later explained the split, via her agency, saying, “the cause [for the divorce] is differences in personality.” The agency further said, “As the two were unable to resolve their issues, they felt they had no choice but to reach this agreement” (the divorce). Out of respect for the two performers’ personal lives, we are unable to provide any additional facts and appeal for your patience in this matter.
