It’s Official: Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo Have Split Up

Sad news for Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo, along with their many shippers throughout the world: It seems that the two actors have decided to split ways.  Hyun Bin’s entertainment agency, AM Entertainment, released an official statement regarding his relationship status.  The announcement comes a day after Hyun Bin’s departure for the Marines.  It also comes after some months of public speculation, as Hyun Bin had neglected to mention Song Hye Gyo in his thank you speech during the SBS Drama Awards earlier this year. 

According to AM Entertainment, the handsome couple broke up early this year.  Here is the translation of the official statement:

“Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo have confirmed their separation as of early this year.  The two actors met through the 2008 drama, “The Way They Live”.  They revealed their love to the public and officially became a couple.  However, Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo each had busy schedules with shooting at home and overseas, which caused a natural complication within their relationship.  The overwhelming public attention also caused them pressure, and groundless rumors of their separation (at the time) were also stressful.  The two didn’t have enough time to overcome these problems, and their relationship only got worse.

“So at last, early this year, the ‪two agreed to end their relationship.  The reason they didn’t say anything publicly was because they didn’t want any further public attention and because Hyun Bin didn’t want to disappoint his fans with such an unfortunate message on the day of his enlistment, the last day he could directly communicate with his fans.  That is why we pushed back the announcement to March 8, after Hyun Bin’s enlistment was finalized.  We are sorry for not announcing this in advance and hope you can understand.  The two will do their best in their respective positions.”

We wish these two talented and beautiful actors the best, together or separately.
