Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's divorce brings an unexpected victim?

AKP STAFF

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's divorce has brought an unexpected victim of sorts.

In 2017, Taebaek city spent 270 million KRW (approximately 230,000 USD) into building a 'Descendants of the Sun' theme park. A part of the attraction included a statue of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's characters sharing a kiss, and the park had brought a lot of Chinese and Taiwanese tourists.

However, with the divorce, many of the tourists have already stopped visiting the park, cutting into the park's profits. 

Sadly, not many seem to be sympathizing with the park as netizens are pointing out that they probably shouldn't have used Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo for profit in the first place.

What do you think?

I don't think it's wrong to use the TV series for the theme of a park. They've done it for shows such as Star Wars (although of course Star Wars has a much larger fanbase). It actually seems pretty cool. But I'm sure the people who started it up have made their money. It's a shame for those who are employed there of course.

But it's their character not them so I dont see the problem. Also the drama was amazing and beautiful so why stop going thats unfortunate. :( I hope it's just a reaction to the sudden news and after a little while it picks up again.
