Bae and boyfriend break up


Actress Bae Doo-na and her actor boyfriend Jim Sturgess have broken up, according to Saetbyeoldang Entertainment, Bae’s agency.

“They are not together anymore. But we can’t give any further details,” The agency said Friday.

“Bae is in Paris now.”

Bae and Sturgess first met each other when the two were cast for the film “Cloud Atlas” (2012), directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski.
In the sci-fi film, the two acted as a fictional couple and later developed a romantic relationship in real life.

Bae publicly addressed Sturgess as her boyfriend last May when she attended Cannes Film Festival.

She was at Cannes because the film she starred in, “A Girl at My Door,” was invited by the festival.

Bae debuted in 1998 as a model on the cover of a fashion magazine and has been pursuing an acting career since then.

She has appeared in films such as “The Host” (2006) and “As One” (2012) in Korea.

Her 2009 film “Air Doll,” in which she takes on the role of a life-sized inflatable sex doll, became a milestone in her career.

After watching her performance in the film, the Wachowskis contacted her. Bae has worked with the Hollywood filmmakers in a couple of projects, including “Cloud Atlas” and the drama series “Sense 8.”
