Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki reportedly only took 5 minutes to complete their divorce mediation. Within those 5 minutes, they were officially declared legally divorced.
Judge Jang Jin Young from the Seoul Family Court presided over the mediation. Both lawyers had already come prepared with a completed agreement of the divorce settlement. Thus, the whole mediation was completed in only 5 minutes.
Song Hye Kyo’s agency revealed that there were “no alimony or division of property” in the divorce settlement.
Divorce lawyers claimed that the amount of time it took for their divorce mediation was “unusually faster than [they] thought.” They explained that despite the fact that they were wealthy top stars in the public eye, their divorce procedure took much faster than even those who aren’t famous and have less to discuss over.
Industry insiders claim both parties wanted to complete the procedure as soon as possible, considering how their divorce became a widely discussed topic all over the world. They also claimed that the former couple wished to have the procedure done and over with before the court took an official break in the last week of July.
Unless it’s a very important case, the court does not preside over cases during the break. Although the Song-Song couple’s divorce is a widely discussed issue, it does not qualify as an important case.
If they did not finish the procedure quickly, it would have been delayed for weeks. That’s probably why they wanted to get it done as soon as possible.
