Dating issues are a huge deal for Korean celebrities.
Fans may get overprotective, so as actors and idols alike are very careful when it comes to announcing their relationship with someone. This also means that their breakups are even harder to announce for the fans and the public. Here, I have compiled some of the heartbreaking breakups.
Honey Lee Yoon Kye Sang

They have dated for seven years, so the majority of fans were expecting them to get married very soon.

Im Bora, a famous influencer, ran a YouTube channel and uploaded 'couple vlogs' with Swings. Recently, they even opened a cafe in Hongdae called Rally Point together. However, the public is wondering how they are going to run the cafe if they have separated.
Both Swings and Im Bora posted pictures of each other often, showing off their strong relationship, but as of June 8th, all of the pictures together have been taken down and the public is focusing on their relationship status.
Kai and Jenny's relationship news was Dispatch's very first breaking news for the year of 2019.

She wrote "I'm revealing the text message that was the motif of 'Happy Now'. I am sure you are happy, but I hope you become even happier and hope that you live a fruitful life no matter what seed you plant. I am happy now."
The text message is about apologizing for ghosting and doing something that should have not been done during the relationship. Also, the text message adds that 'I acted nice while doing things worse than average guys. I was always sincere while dating you and I thought a lot about how I wanted you to be happy even though it isn't because of me'.
Currently, Jung Jinwoon is dating Kyungri from Nine Muses.

Photos of their dates in London were released by Dispatch, but it was not long after their relationship was publicized when they broke up in the last quarter of 2017. It was later learned that the couple had been dating since 2015.
It was stated in the news that Lee Min Ho and Suzy decided to go separate ways from not seeing each other as often. Lee Min Ho was more than willing to get married to Suzy, but Suzy wasn't ready. Also, their age gap was eight years, which means that Suzy was only 22 at the time.
In 2016, Dispatch released photos of SeolHyun from AOA and Zico from Block B that proved their romantic relationship.
The photos showed them going on a drive along Hangang and hanging out at Zico's place.
After six months, they released that they were broken up and moving on. Both agencies from SeolHyun and Zico did not mention anything furthermore other than they had separated.
It is unfortunate, but for many romances, separation follows. 😢 We're wishing all of them the best and happiness!
