On March 8th, the agencies of actor Hyun Bin and actress Song Hye Kyo officially announced that they had broken up in January.
The two agencies released a joint statement, that reads as follows:
“We would like to inform the public that Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo decided to part ways earlier this year.
The two met in 2008 through the drama, ‘The World They Live In‘, and carefully acknowledged their love soon after to the public.
However, due to their busy drama, movie, and overseas schedules, they naturally weren’t able to pay as much attention as the other needed. The excessive amount of attention from those around them was pressuring, as well as the stress they received regarding unfounded rumors detailing their break-up. They did not have the time or freedom to overcome such obstacles, leading to an inevitable gap in their relationship.
Eventually, the two agreed to part ways earlier this year. Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo did not release an official statement because they did not want the public’s attention to be taken away from their respective works. Hyun Bin also did not want to bring up such a personal matter while greeting the public for the final time before his enlistment. Such is the reason why we postponed the release of this information until the 8th.
We would like to apologize for not informing you of this information earlier. The two will work to show their best in their own respective positions.”
