June is a month associated with weddings and romance, so it’s a good time to look back at the couples who got one step closer to the altar and those that called it quits. So far it has been a good year for celebrity couples and sadly also a year for a few break-ups. In fact the number of couples who announced they were dating and are still dating is equal to the number who broke up.
It was barely New Year’s Day when we learned that Girls Generation’s Yoona was dating actor Lee Seung Gi. He expressed his admiration of her in public a few times and yet it still came as a surprise that the Yoona, who starred in “The Prime Minister and I” was dating Lee Seung Gi, who now appears in “You Are All Surrounded.” She was the first member of Girls Generation to publicly date.
Fans shipped him with Suzy Bae in “Gu Family Book,” but he preferred Yoona.
Barely a few days later it was revealed that fellow Girls Generation member Choi Soo Young was also dating an actor. She was dating actor Jung Kyung Ho, who was seen in “Cruel City,” “Smile” and “Time Between Wolf and Dog.” The two became friendly because they went to the same university and the same church. She had her first leading roles as an actress in “The Third Hospital” and “Dating Agency: Cyrano.”
Recently fans learned that actress Gong Hyo Jin was dating actor Lee Jin Wook. The actors had been dating for a few months when they were photographed out on a date together. Fans had shipped her with her “Master’s Sun” co-star So Ji Sub but she chose Lee Jin Wook who was seen in “Nine” and will play a prince in “The Three Musketeers.”
She will next be seen in “That’s Okay It’s Love” with Jo In Sung. Both actors previously dated fellow actors. She dated Ryu Seung Bum and he dated Choi Ji Woo.
It was also a year for break-ups. One of last year’s favorite couples, Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum split up. The two met on the set of “Goddess of Fire: Jeonji” and publicly announced their relationship before backpacking around Europe. The relationship lasted six months.
Yoo In Na, who was seen in “You Who Came From The Stars” has dated her “Queen Inhyun’s Man” co-star Ji Hyun Woo since they filmed the drama together. He enlisted and fans expected them to reconnect when he left military duty. The couple announced their breakup shortly after his discharge. He will soon be seen in the drama “Trot Lovers.”
It was only last September that Kim Woo Bin, who appeared in “The Heirs,” announced publicly that he was dating model Yoo Ji Ahn. And although the couple had dated for years, since they worked together as models, he broke up with her shortly after the end of “The Heirs.” No reason was given for the breakup but rumors said their increasingly busy schedules kept them apart.
With six months to go in 2014, which couples do you think will declare their love and which will break up?
