Honey Lee and Yoon Kye Sang call it quits, here's a look at their seven-year relationship
After denying the break-up rumors for a good amount of time, the South Korean celebrity couple Honey Lee and Yoon Kye Sang have finally ended their relationship. A representative of Sara Entertainment revealed on June 11, "Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee have recently ended their romantic relationship and have decided to remain as good colleagues. We ask for your continued interest and support for the two actors." The agency also issued a statement saying the g.o.d actor has terminated his contract with Sara Entertainment. However, their breakup hasn’t come across as a shock as the couple was speculated to be going through a bit of a rough patch in their relationship for a while now.
News about their breakup first started making rounds on the internet after Lee shared a throwback picture with her puppy on Instagram last September and captioned it: "#BecauseEverythingChanges." Her caption further read, "Even if we’re always together, then and now, you and I have changed, and change is definite but I miss those days badly. The days that won’t come back. Like Today.#AllYouCanDoIsDevoteToEachDay."
Although fans were quick to sense some trouble between the duo, Lee brushed the speculations aside as rumors. Addressing the reports claiming she had broken up with Sang, the actress said in an interview, "We’re dating well. I was so shocked by the sudden break-up rumors. I didn’t understand where the rumors came from. It made me think that I need to be careful." Meanwhile, Lee and Sang are yet to comment on their recent split. Sang and Lee first met during the Busan International Film Festival and started dating in 2013. They were photographed together on multiple occasions, but neither they nor their agencies confirmed that they were dating until 2016 when a photo of them vacationing together in Jeju Island went viral, exposing their secret romance.
Despite going public with their relationship, marriage was never on the card for this couple, or at least for Sang. When asked about his plans to marry long-term girlfriend Lee during an interview, Sang said, "Nothing has changed from last year or the year before that, so I don’t have anything to say. We’re happily dating." Fans of both the actors took to Twitter to react to the Lee and Sang breakup, with one stating in shock, "I never thought Honey Lee and Yoon Kye Sang would break up!! It's quite shocking for me!!" While another added, "YOON KYE SANG AND HONEY LEE BROKE UP!?! OMGGGG. NOOOOOO."
