When rumours of former U-Kiss member Dongho and his wife possibly getting a divorce started spreading, nobody could believe it. But many things pointed to the couple possibly not being on good terms anymore such as the missus deleting all pictures of the ex-idol from her social media.
Unfortunately, as lousy as it is to hear such a split, the rumours are indeed true.
The couple has officially shared the shocking news.
“I apologise for worrying many people with today’s news. I was planning to keep our decision quiet for the sake of my son and his mother but news eventually broke out.
“Although I do not have much to explain, we have made the decision to go through with the divorce due to a difference in personality and all the necessary paperwork has already been processed.
“The decision was made after much discussion and contemplation and we did not break up on bad terms so we will do our best to take responsibility as the parents of a child despite the fact that our marriage has come to an end.
“Finally, although I am already very much exposed to the media, I humbly ask that everyone could help my son grow without getting anymore hurt.
Even Dongho’s father, Shin Sung Cheol, had to step in and explain what was going on.
“It happened because they had different personalities and just weren’t a good match for each other.
“I’m not happy about it but what can you do…It’s too bad but I think there may be more changes (to get back together) in the future.
“Because they have a child, they didn’t break up on bad terms. Even recently, we wanted to see our grandchild so we watched him for awhile.
“In terms of raising the child, both parents must take responsibility. We thought it would be best if the mother raises the child so that’s what we’ve decided on.”
Meanwhile, netizens noted that they’ve been having problems for quite a while now. The soon-to-be ex-wife often wrote captions which hinted on Dongho being absent from the family picture quite often.
Some of these captions include,
“It’s so hard because of you, but I gain strength because of you. #RaisingChildAlone”
“My son is the best. It’s really difficult for a mum to raise her child alone.”
“My Asher finally turned two. I wanted to create a wonderful memory for Asher, so I walked around Coex for 3 hours while carrying him alone. I thought I was going to die, but I was able to have a good birthday party after recruiting some of my friends.”
Hopefully Asher and his mum can live on well.
