Comedians split after four years


Comedians Yu Sang-moo and Kim Ji-min have confirmed that they’ve split up after a four-year courtship, according to local news outlets.

After news of their break-up surfaced, their respective management companies confirmed that the pair had parted ways this April.

Through telephone interviews with various local media outlets, Kim said that she and Yu had been drifting apart for a while because of their hectic schedules but that the split was amicable.

She added that they still contact each other and are supportive of one another’s activities.

In a telephone interview with Sports Chosun, Yu said that he and Kim remain good friends. He also said that he is worried that this news will affect Kim’s career in a negative way.

The two began dating in 2007 when they were featured as a couple in a segment on KBS 2TV’s “Gag Concert.”

In July 2009, Yu revealed on a morning program that he and Kim were dating.
