South Korean actress Park Si Yeon is filing for a divorce after 5 years of marriage. According to Mystic Entertainment on May 17, "They tried to come to a fair agreement, but failed to do so, which led to a divorce. Please understand that we cannot say much more in detail since it is her private life. Also, please consider Park Si Yeon's young children and do not create or spread rumors. We will take strict action against them."
Park Si Yeon is a South Korean actress. She joined the Miss Korea pageant in 2000, and using that as a springboard to an acting career, she made her acting debut in China in 2004, appearing in minor roles in several CCTV dramas. In 2005 Park was cast in her first starring role in the Korean drama My Girl, though at the time she was more known for dating actor-singer Eric Mun. As she built her filmography in the following years, Park overcame early criticism of her acting skills and eventually gained respect as an actress in TV series such as La Dolce Vita, Coffee House and The Innocent Man, as well as the films The Fox Family, A Love, and The Scent.
On November 19, 2011 at the Seoul Hyatt Hotel, Park married Park Sang-hun, an office worker at a small company. She gave birth to their first child, a daughter, on September 24, 2013. Their second child, also a daughter, was born on November 14, 2015. In early 2013, Park was among the celebrities investigated then indicted for illegal use of propofol; Park's agency denied the allegations, saying she took the drug for medical reasons after she injured her back doing action scenes for the films Marine Boy and Dachimawa Lee. During the trial, her doctor testified that she had been taking the drug to treat avascular necrosis at the head of her femur. In October 2013, the Seoul Central District Court found Park guilty of taking propofol 400-500 times over four-and-a-half years (or 8.2 times a month), and she was sentenced to eight months in prison, suspended for two years.
