On July 2, a representative of Song Joong Ki's agency HiStory D&C stepped up to respond to reports that the actor is currently facing conflict with his Itaewon neighbors, caused by renovations taking place on his property.
According to reports, residents living in the neighborhood in Itaewon filed complaints with the city of Yongsan after a public road bordering Song Joong Ki's property was repaved. The residents found the repaving work problematic due to the fact that the road's elevation was raised higher than before.
In response, a representative of HiStory D&C relayed, "We are doing our best to resolve the issue."
The rep continued, "After discovering that movement on this road was difficult, renovators decided to repave the road. However, the elevation of the road was unintentionally raised during this process. In the case that a repaving procedures changes the elevation of a road, it must be reported to the city; but because the situation was unintended, the report was not filed initially. The city has since ordered the renovators to correct the mistake."
Finally, Song Joong Ki's side explained, "We are currently seeking the best resolution while taking various matters into account. It's taking a while to settle on a resolution, which is why the process is being delayed. It's not true that we were not doing anything to resolve the conflict. Currently, we have explained the situation to the residents in the vicinity, and have also filed a report regarding the pavement plans."
Meanwhile, back in February of 2020, Song Joong Ki began construction on his property in Itaewon-dong to build a private, luxury home.
