Song Joong Ki

  • Name: Song Joong Ki
  • Native name: 송중기
  • Given name: Song Joong Ki
  • Also Known as: Song Joong Gi, Song Jung Ki
  • Nationality: South Korean

  • Age: 34
Song Joong Ki is a South Korean actor, who rose to fame in the historical drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" and the variety show "Running Man" as one of the original cast members when it premiered in 2010. Song played his first TV leading role in the melodrama "The Innocent Man". He has also starred in feature films, notably as the title character in the box office hit "A Werewolf Boy".

After completing his mandatory military service, Song took on the lead role in the pan-Asia hit drama "Descendants of the Sun" which cemented his status as a top Hallyu star. He placed seventh in Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list in 2013 and ranked second in 2017.

The second of three siblings, Song was raised in the rural outskirts of Daejeon. He competed in short track speed skating and represented his home city of Daejeon at the national level (he would go on to portray a national speed skater in the TV series Triple). Unfortunately, an injury forced him to give up the sport during his first year of high school. He excelled in his studies all through high school and scored 380 points out of 400 on his national college entrance test, gaining admission to Sungkyunkwan University. While in Seoul preparing for the entrance test, he was scouted on the subway by an agent but did not immediately enter the entertainment industry as he was still ambivalent about his career path, and because his father had initially been against him becoming an actor. He continued to study part-time after deciding to enter the entertainment industry full-time during his third year of university, eventually graduating with a degree in Business Administration (minor in broadcasting) in 2012.
Song first appeared in a TV show as a contestant on KBS's Quiz Korea, substituting for a senior who was sick. Song eventually won second place. This brought him significant attention, and he became a cover model for the university magazine College.

On July 5, 2017, Song and Descendants of the Sun co-star, Song Hye Kyo, announced through their respective agencies that they were engaged. They married in a private ceremony on October 31, 2017.
On June 26, 2019, Song Joong Ki filed for divorce from Song Hye Kyo.
