Say it isn’t so! Jihyo (지효) from the girl group TWICE and Kang Daniel (강다니엘) have ended their relationship. :(
Dispatch broke the shocking news earlier today (Tuesday, 10th November). According to the news outlet, the K-pop couple themselves have decided to call it quits after 1 year and 3 months of dating.
The reports also added that the reason for the split was due to the fact that they were “simply too busy to continue seeing each other”. In this case, it was getting harder for Jihyo and Daniel to meet up, especially considering the idols’ hectic schedules.
Additionally, both have become extremely busy with comeback preparations, which has caused them to drift apart. An insider stated, “The two idols both have their clear goals. As they were focused on working on their (respective) albums, they had fewer meetings with each other. It seems like they both thought that work was more important at the current time.”
In response to the circulating reports, Jihyo and the former Wanna One member’s agencies – JYP Entertainment and Konnect Entertainment – later confirmed the news in a statement that reads, “After checking with the artist, it is true that they’ve recently separated.”
For those who don’t know, the pair went public with their relationship in August 2019. Get the full scope here.
