Song Joong-ki got married to his lady love Song Hye-kyo, this past October 31, in a private ceremony. Fans were obviously ecstatic that their favourite Hallyu couple had become real-life husband and wife. However, it seems the social media is not reflecting the happiness as many have expressed disppointment about Song joong-ki. Some are of the opinion that the 'Descendants of the Sun' actor looks unwell following his marriage.
As noted by website Allkpop, Song Joong-ki arrived in Hong Kong on November 30. He will be acting as a host for the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), on December 1. Song Hye-kyo has decided to stay back in South Korea.
Members of the press became quite shutter-happy, obviously quite a few photos of Song Joong-ki waving to the crowd were snapped and shared across social media. In the photos Song Joong-ki was seen wearing glasses. He had a gray outer coat on above his casual clothes. He was also sporting his wedding ring.
Such things attracted the interests of Chinese media outlets as well as diehard fans of the actor and the Song-Song couple. "Song Joong-ki used a secret passageway at the airport around 11:53 a.m. His wedding ring was clearly visible on site, drawing much attention. The actor also seems to be enjoying his newlywed life as he appeared to have gained weight. He was kind enough to wave towards the camera," reported Chinese media outlets.
It was alright so far. However, Netizens spotted something very odd and intriguing about Song Joong-ki's appearance in Hong Kong, in those photos. They commented: "He suddenly looks like an old man after getting married??? Did something happen on his honeymoon?"
Another said: "He became uglier since getting married." One more wryly remarked: "He just looks like an average person without any makeup on," while another added:"Just how much energy was sucked out of him, feed him some healthy food." Numerous other remarks have been flooding the social media.
Song Joong-ki's fans sound very worried over his post-marriage health, looks and nutrition. The actor would naturally look drained following his marriage as such ceremonies are quite exhausting. But to think something wrong occurred during his honeymoon with Song Hye-kyo, which ended up making him look uglier and old even, is perhaps a bit too much. However, it is also understandable why some fans would be upset by Song Joong-ki looking like an average man, when he is expected to always look like a well decked-up celebrity.
It is much easier to accept that Song Joong-ki actually looks healthier; he seems to have put on some weight following marriage. The exhausted appearance can be attributed to nothing more than just a bit of jet lag. Some of the aforementioned photos can be seen here.
Otherwise, Song Joong-ki's hosting of the 2017 MAMA will reportedly be his first public appearance after his wedding to Hallyu star Song Hye-kyo. While Song Joong-ki hosts the Hong Kong ceremony, Park Bo-hum will be hosting the Japan ceremony of the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA).
