Actress Park Si-yeon files for divorce after 5 yrs

SEOUL, May 17 (Yonhap) -- Actress Park Si-yeon is seeking to divorce her husband with whom she has been married for five years, her talent agency said Tuesday.

"It is regrettable because she tried to reach an agreement without taking matters to court," MYSTIC Entertainment said.

The 37-year-old has two daughters with a businessman who is four years her senior. She married the man, who works in a trading business, in 2011.

Park was named Miss Seoul in the 2000 Miss Korea pageant and has appeared in popular TV series, such as "La Dolce Vita," "The Slingshot" and "The Innocent Man." In the last one, she played the lead woman, alongside star actor Song Joong-ki.

Park was last mired in controversy when she received a suspended sentence for drug use in 2013. A local court sentenced her to eight months in prison with a two-year stay of execution for abusing propofol, an anesthetic.

She took a one-year break from acting afterward and returned with a cable TV series in September.

The agency advised the media against writing speculative stories or spreading false rumors about her lawsuit.
