After dating for seven years, celebrity couple Yoon Kye-sang and Lee Ha-nee are no longer an item.
The couple’s agency Saram Entertainment confirmed their split on Thursday.
“The two actors have recently decided to end their relationship but will remain good colleagues,” the agency reported.
Yoon and Lee met in 2012 at the Busan International Film Festival before going public with their relationship in 2013. The iconic couple was beloved by fans.
Yoon debuted as part of star boy band g.o.d in 1999 and successfully transitioned his career to acting. Yoon's been praised for his performances in drama series such as “Last” (2015) on JTBC, “Good Wife” (2016) on tvN, and films such as “Minority Opinion” (2015) and “The Outlaws” (2017).
Lee was crowned as Miss Korea in 2006 and also starred in drama series such as “Shine or Go Crazy” (2015) and “The Rebel” (2017) on MBC and “Come Back Mister” (2016) and “The Fiery Priest” (2019) on SBS. She also featured in films like “Tazza: The Hidden Card” (2014), “Extreme Job” (2019) and recently in “Black Money” (2019).
Saram Entertainment announced that Yoon has left the agency, Thursday afternoon.
"After much deliberation, both sides have reached an agreement to terminate our contract,” the agency reported. “Yoon will be taking a break for a while and we express our heartfelt gratitude to him for being with us for so long.”
According to an Ilgan Sports report, an industry insider told the press that Yoon is looking for a new agency after he broke up with Lee earlier this year. Yoon signed with Saram Entertainment in 2013 and Lee soon followed.
