    This might be the second South Korean celebrity couple to part ways this year.

    "Blood" TV series co-stars Ku Hye-sun and Ahn Jae-hyun are planning to divorce after 3 years of marriage, Yonhap news agency reports. The pair fell in love during shooting and got married in 2016; their love story and married life was showcased in the reality show called Newlywed Diary in 2017.

    On 17 August, Ku Hye-sun uploaded a post to Instagram that was later deleted, depicting a chat with her husband. According to the screenshots, they discussed how to tell the actress' mother that the couple were getting divorced.

    ​The actors' agency released a statement later in the day, confirming the reports: "Despite encouragement and anticipation from many people, the two actors have recently reached a point where they can no longer continue their married life due to various problems and decided to part ways after serious discussions", HB Entertainment said as cited by Yonhap. "As their management agency, the company respects the two people's decision that came after several months of serious discussions and hopes they will live more happily apart". 

    The news appeared amid plans to launch a new season of the popular travel reality show New Journey to the West where Ahn Jae-hyun is one of the co-hosts, but now the cast might be in question as fans are disappointed with the news.

    ​Following publication of the news about the impending divorce, the show and the couple trended in the Top-10 list of the South Korean segment of Twitter.

    ​The news about the pair's divorce appeared like a bombshell to their fans shortly after another top-celebrity couple separated from each other earlier in the summer. Co-stars on the famous TV series "Defendants of the Sun" Song Joon-ki and Song Hey-kyo finalised their divorce on 22 July.
