Song Joong Ki clarifies his comment about choosing to take his role in 'Space Sweepers' during a time when he felt he'd personally 'given up'


Last weekend, in light of the premiere of the blockbuster sci-fi film 'Space Sweepers' on Netflix, the production's lead cast members took part in an online press conference to discuss their experiences working on the project. 

During the press conference, actor Song Joong Ki garnered attention by describing his character, Tae Ho, as, "When I first thought of Tae Ho, I thought that he was a person who'd given up on himself. Tae Ho reminded me of the Song Joong Ki of back then." 

After the press conference aired, various media outlets suspected that Song Joong Ki was referring to his life immediately after his divorce with Song Hye Jyo. Filming for 'Space Sweepers' actually took place in the latter half of 2019. 


Now, Song Joong Ki's side has stepped up to clarify the various speculations around his comment. On February 9, Song Joong Ki relayed, "It's true. At that time, I felt that Tae Ho was in a similar place as me. Exactly that phrase, 'given up'."

He then continued, "I would like to go into more detail, but it is a personal, private matter for me also, and so I will leave it as a canvas with a lot of white space." 

Finally, Song Joong Ki also relayed, "If there are talks of a sequel to 'Space Sweepers', I would very much like to participate. If any such plans are being formulated, please get in touch with me."

I'm glad that he's better now, mentally.

On a side note,

I was so annoyed while watching space sweepers. My family and I decided on movie night and my dad picked the movie. I honestly fell in love while watching it, but literally half way my parents and brother kept complaining that the movie was boring which ruined it for me. I honestly kept telling them that I wanted to watch it in peace, but they kept running their mouths. It kinda put me in a sour mood..

Sorry, this got really off topic..

Given Song Hye Kyo’s very prolific dating history, one can only surmise what happened.

Song Joong Ki these days looks like a man who has lost the spark in his eyes (remember how bright and hopeful he used to be?), but the upside is he’s capable of taking the morose roles now.
