Oh no! Another Hallyu couple has called it quits :(
According to Soompi, actors Lee Joon Gi (이준기) and Jeon Hye Bin (전혜빈) have broken up. An insider said that the pair became distant because of their busy schedules, adding that the former lovers will continue to support one another as colleagues.
In a statement, their labels – Namoo Actors – said, “Lee Joon Gi and Jeon Hye Bin have ended their relationship due to their busy schedules. Their relationship faded away naturally due to this factor.”
The sudden news comes as a shock to many fans. The 34-year-old “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” star and the 33-year-old actress, who were co-stars in KBS2’s “Gunman in Joseon” 3 years ago, confirmed their relationship in April 2017.
Just a couple of months ago, Jeon gushed about her ex-boyfriend on “Happy Together 3”. She shared, “I thought he was polite at first, but the more I got to know him, the more I came to realise that he was a good person. At some point, he started leaving a lot of comments on my social media as well. We naturally developed into a dating relationship.”
Lee Joon Gi is currently starring in the Korean remake of “Criminal Minds” while Jeon Hye Bin plays the female lead in SBS’ “Distorted.”
