Fendi, for starters, was established in Rome in 1925 and has been known for its elegance, craftmanship and creativity since its inception. Today, the brand has a reputation as a fashion house that combines luxury and trend. The addition of Song Hye Kyo to the Fendi family is expected to boost its popularity and widen its market.

Based on her popularity and marketability in 2021, it is safe to say that Song Hye Kyo’s net worth was not affected by her infamous divorce from Song Joong Ki. In fact, Hye Kyo is already a huge star even before she started dating Joong Ki.
