After the news of their divorce broke on Thursday, Ziyi took to Weibo to ask fans to “respect their choice.”


“Respect their choice, believe it to be the best choice, and hope to see them at their best in the future,” Ziyi wrote, as reported by The Korea Herald.

While Ziyi did not mention names, fans believed she was referring to the so-called “Song-Song” couple.
