On July 10, Kim Min Joon announced their breakup on his private social media channel. He wrote, “Since the beginning of our relationship was revealed to everyone in a situation without our say, I am writing this because I think I should also reveal the end. Choi Jin Ri and I have decided to go our separate ways.”
He explained, “We got to know each other as man and woman, and we began to notice differences and accepted them. It was a normal relationship, and it was only between the two of us. There are no special incidents or background stories to be curious about. The entire process was my choice, and I will take responsibility for what really happened, but please do not make up stories that aren’t true.”
Sulli and Kim Min Joon were confirmed to be in a relationship in May after dating for two months.
