Ji Hyun Woo, who stars in the cable drama "Awl," has been granting interviews but that doesn't mean he will answer every question that he's asked. Not if the question is too personal. For example, when he was recently interviewed for the Korean media outlet Sports Hankooki he was asked about his 2014 break-up with actress Yoo In Na.
The couple announced their breakup in May of 2014 shortly after the actor's discharge from his two-year mandatory military duty.
According to the interview in Sports Hankooki, the actor is still not ready to discuss his break up.
"I am the guy first so I can't talk about it first," he reportedly said.
When the couple broke, up, her agency, YG Entertainment, did not give a reason. The agency said that the break-up was the actress' personal business and they did not want to discuss it.
The ongoing interest in the actors' relationship may stem from the fact that they were not shy about announcing that they were dating. They met on the set of "Queen Inhyun's Man," when she played an actress playing Queen In Hyun. He played a time-traveling scholar loyal to the real Queen In Hyun. Although the character unpredictably traveled back and forth in time, his love was strong enough to eventually keep him in the present.
And the two actors became fond of each other in real life.
Ji Hyun Woo publicly declared his feelings for Yoo In Na during an interview. Shortly after that the two were photographed on a late night date. On a radio show she said, "We decided that he will stop being Inhyun's Man and instead, start being Yoo In Na's Man."
He enlisted for his mandatory military service two months after that declaration. Most of the time the couple dated he was serving in the military and they did not have many opportunities to meet. Fans noticed her absence during his discharge ceremony and the couple announced that they broke up shortly after that.
After his discharge from military duty, he appeared in the dramas "Trot Lovers" with Jung Eun Ji and "Angry Mom" with Kim Hee Sun. Yoo In Na recently appeared in "You Who Came From Another Star" with Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun and "My Secret Hotel" with Nam Goong Min.
"Awl" started on October 24 and airs on Saturdays and Sundays. In the drama Ji Hyun Woo plays a store manager who refuses to follow his boss' orders and fire the store's temporary workers. He decides to join the labor union and help the employees fight their unfair dismissal.
