Song Joong-ki's new wife used to be his Italian teacher, according to a South Korean media report.

On Monday, Dispatch revealed that the 37-year-old South Korean actor met his British wife, Katy Louise Saunders, in Italy a few years ago.

In his hit K-drama series “Vincenzo,” released in 2021, Song plays a Korean Italian mafia lawyer named Vincenzo Cassano who “gives a conglomerate a taste of its own medicine with a side of justice.” For his role as Vincenzo, Song needed to speak Italian in several of the show’s scenes.

However, Dispatch reported that he only started learning Italian from Saunders after wrapping up filming for “Vincenzo.”

Song and Saunders made headlines recently following the announcement of their first child.

On Monday, Song announced on his official fan cafe that he and Saunders are married and will become parents.

Song was formerly married to his “Descendants of the Sun” co-star Song Hye-kyo for two years before they divorced in 2019.
