Say it isn’t so, another celebrity couple has decided to call it quits! Earlier today, it was reported that singer Kim Gun Mo (김건모) and his wife, pianist Jang Ji Yeon (장지연) have decided to go their separate ways.
According to reports, the South Korean singer is currently undergoing divorce with his soon-to-be former spouse, ending their two years and eight months of marriage.
Gun Mo’s agency issued a brief statement in response to the circulating news. They stated, “It is true that Kim Gun Mo is moving forward with the divorce procedures.” Meanwhile, there have been no statements released from Ji Yeon’s side so far.
For those who don’t know, the duo tied the knot in October of 2019, after dating for approximately a year. Initially, the couple planned to hold a wedding ceremony in 2020. However, that same year, the veteran star unfortunately found himself getting embroiled in sexual assault allegations.
Following the controversy, Gun Mo halted all of his entertainment activities, and the couple’s wedding ceremony never took place. However, in November 2021, it was revealed that the 54-year-old had been acquitted from all charges, and the case was closed.
On top of that, they were also widely remembered for their appearance in the SBS variety show “My Little Old Boy”, capturing the viewers’ attention with their sweet love story.
