Jeon's agency told enews24.net yesterday that the two divorced last month. According to Jeon's agency, the split was amicable.
"Jeon said the divorce was entirely his fault and that the two still remain in contact", the representative said.
The couple met on the set of MBC drama "Saint and a Witch" in 2003 and married in Jeone of the same year. The wedding caused quite a scandal in the industry, as Jeon is nine years younger than his wife.
The marriage is thought to have begun to crumble in 2008 when the two started a makgeolli (rice beer) business called "Glory of the Family" after a drama of the same name in which Jeon had starred. The business eventually went under, and the resulting financial strain is believed to have been a source of trouble between the couple, eventually leading to their divorce.
Kim and Jeon have three children. The arrangements for custody of the children are not yet known.
