Rumours has it that Son Ga-In (손가인) and Joo Ji Hoon (주지훈) are breaking up.
Netizens claimed that the 2 are no longer a couple after the Brown Eyed Girls (브아걸) member called her boyfriend a “former drug addict” in one of her Instagram posts.
Just in case you didn’t know, the “Princess Hours” star was arrested by the Seoul Metropolitan Police on drug charges in 2009 and pleaded guilty to using ecstacy as well as ketamine.
In a series of Instagram posts, Ga-In revealed that she has been suffering from mental illness. Besides that, the singer and actress called out a man named Park Jung Wook, who is a friend of Joo, for offering her marijuana. As at time of writing, the Seoul Police Narcotics Investigation unit has started investigating the case and will summon Ga-In as a witness to the case.
According to X Sports News via Soompi, Joo’s label, Key East Entertainment, has stepped up to address the couple’s alleged break up. The company stated, “It is difficult to confirm at this point whether or not the two have broken up.”
On the other hand, Ga-In’s label, Mystic Entertainment, has yet to comment on the situation as they are currently “assessing how to best handle the current situation regarding Ga-In’s shocking confession and resulting involvement in a police investigation”.
The couple first confirmed their romantic relationship in May 2014, 4 months after they appeared in Ga-In’s steamy and dramatic solo music video, “F**k U”. They were also caught up in a sex photo scandal in April 2016.
