Oh no, another Hallyu couple has called it quits!
After 3 months of dating, former After School member UEE (유이) and Japanese-Korean Singer Kangnam have broken up.
In a statement, Kangnam’s label RD Entertainment said, “It is confirmed that the 2 have ended their relationship after checking with them. Due to their personal schedules, their relationship naturally drifted apart. They will continue to support each other and continue to be friends. They both wish that people support them on their own individual paths.”
Meanwhile, UEE’s agency Yuleum Entertainment stated, “Kangnam and UEE recently broke up. They each focused on their work and naturally separated. They’ve decided to remain as colleagues who will cheer each other on.”
UEE (real name Kim Yu Jin) and Kangnam (real name Yasuo Namekawa) met on the set of reality-documentary show “Law of the Jungle” in May. The idol-turned actress, who is currently filming KBS2 Wednesday-Thursday drama “Man Hole”, first took to Instagram to deny their relationship. However, their respective labels later confirmed the rumours after dispatch released photos.
Prior to dating Kangnam, UEE was romantically linked to K-Drama actor Lee Sang Yoon.
