Song Joong Ki‘s legal counsel has confirmed that he and Song Hye Kyo have agreed on how the divorce shall proceed, and will not head towards a lawsuit that many other divorcing couples go through.
His lawyer stated that the couple will finalize their divorce through mediation, and the divorce could be finalized in as little as a month.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo have agreed on a divorce by themselves. This will not lead to a divorce lawsuit.
The framework of the divorce has been agreed upon, but they do have some differences in some of the smaller details about the divorce process.
As Song Joong Ki has already said, rather than accusing each other of doing rights and wrongs, they have already agreed on a divorce.

Because the divorce application was recently submitted, it will take some time for the application to be filed. Generally, a divorce settlement application takes about 1 month to file, but because the divorcees are such high-profile celebrities, the process is expected to take longer.
Song Joong Ki has finished filming for his drama, Arthdal Chronicles and tvN has stated that the news of the divorce will not affect how the drama is broadcast. Song Hye Kyo was rumored to have been in discussions for the upcoming drama Hyena, but it was revealed she denied a role in the drama a long time ago.
