South Korean celebrity couple Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Hye-sun split recently after an intense and heated exchange of words between the two that went on for weeks.
Following that, there was a deafening silence from both the screen stars over the last few days which may have left fans wondering what happened.
The reason is a supposed ‘gag order’ that was put in place following the intervention of their respective lawyers and friends.
Allkpop, a Korean pop culture website quoted an insider saying that the couple “do not want to be talked about anymore”.
The media tried to contact the couple’s lawyers to reveal details of the couple’s divorce process but there was no response.
“We cannot make any comments on this matter. We are sorry,” was the only statement issued.
While it is unsure who are the parties involved in the mediation and what were the terms of the ‘gag order’ itself, the lack of comment even from their friends and close acquaintances have been taken by many as proof of the directive.
Goo is about to release her book I’m Your Companion Animal while Ahn is in the midst of filming a Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) drama, People with Flaws.
Goo had previously posted and subsequently deleted two Instagram posts with images of screenshots of her conversation with Ahn, where her husband had asked for a divorce.
She had last accused Ahn of having an affair with fellow actress Oh Yeon-seo.
Since the divorce of South Korean actress Goo Hye-sun and actor Ahn Jae-hyun, fans of Goo Hye-sun are up in arms against Ahn Jae-hyun despite him finally opening up with his side of the story.
Goo’s revelation that Ahn had a change of heart over their marriage and witnessing him calling other women in reply to his explanation led to roasting of the actor on social media and increasing calls for him to quit their favourite shows.
Fans asked him to quit his role in the New Journey to the West television series which is now entering its seventh season and they demanded he withdraw from another series schedule to be aired in November. -/TISG
