Song Hye-kyo tries her best in relationships because she has a rosy view on love, she said in a recent interview with a local fashion magazine.
"I devote myself fully to a relationship and never turn back when it is over," she said. "If it doesn't work out, nevertheless (I devoted myself to it), it's just a relationship that will never work."
She said she does not understand how two people who were once a couple can remain good friends, a statement that often comes up after breakups.
"Even if you love your boyfriend so much, when you break up he becomes no better than Mr. Kim next door. Mr. Kim next door can at least come by and help," she said.
The 35-year-old actress also feels pressured to get married, as many people around her have already done so and even have kids.
"It gets harder and harder though," she said. "There are a limited number of people you can meet and you become pickier at judging people. Also, you lose your fantasies about marriage when you hear from those married couples."
The star appeared in KBS' 2016 megahit "Descendants of the Sun," which earned her the Grand Prize at the 2016 KBS Drama Awards.
