When celebrities start dating there are only one of two outcomes – marriage or break up. And even the marriage option can later end with break up. I doubt we’ll be around for the til death do us part to arrive but it is still sad when the break up of two lovely celebs happens on my watch. Gong Hyo Jin and Lee Jin Wook are both busy as all out with recent K-dramas and in the news quite frequently these last few months. It’s easy to assume things are going swimmingly in their four month long dating relationship since the early honeymoon phase isn’t even over with, plus Gong Hyo Jin is known for going the distance in her relationships as her dated her last boyfriend Ryu Seung Bum for over 10 years. Sadly it’s not to be as representatives for both Gong Hyo Jin and Lee Jin Wook have confirmed that the couple quietly broke up recently. It’s actually less sad if considered as a summer fling of sorts with two very attractive and quirky individuals
Relationships take time to nurture and both Gong Hyo Jin and Lee Jin Wook have been filming their respective K-dramas since news broke of their dating. Gong Hyo Jin has been immersed in It’s Okay, It’s Love since early spring and the drama just wrapped filming last week right before the last episode aired. Lee Jin Wook’s current K-drama Three Musketeers is still airing once a week on tvN and is reportedly a three season project. That hardly leaves the couple time to just spend with each other so sadly the break up is likely nothing more salacious than not spending enough time together. Now fans of Gong Hyo Jin can go back to shipping her with her numerous costars, a phenomenon that intrigues me since I can’t for the life of me ever see her falling for a leading man on set through acting as a couple in love. That’s totally not her “style” as to borrow a phrase from her Hae Soo in IOIL. With another couple I like biting the dust, hopefully happy news will come out soon to balance out the drama verse dating karma.
