Another k-drama couple has broken up. This time it's Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum, the actors who met on the set of "Goddess of Fire: Jeonji."
Kim Bum's agency King Kong Entertainment told OSEN that the couple has ended their relationship.
"They ended on good terms," said the King Kong representative. "And they still support each other."
Moon Geun Young's agency Namoo Actors also confirmed the news.
"We confirmed with Moon Geun Young that they have indeed broken up. They will maintain their relationship as colleagues."
No reason was given as to why the couple ended their six-month relationship.
It was Namoo Actors that originally released the statement saying the two were dating, saying they grew fond of each other when she played Yoo Jung, Korea's first female ceramic artist and he played her lifelong friend and protector. Although his character did not win hers in the drama, the two began dating in real life. While the crew of "Goddess of Fire: Jeonji" noted how protective Kim Bum was of his co-star on set, there were no rumors circulating about them dating. Still, as soon as they did decide to date, Moon Geun Young wanted to be honest about their relationship. They made an announcement about their relationship before traveling to Europe together. The trip was a vacation to celebrate the drama's completion in October.
Their European vacation lasted a month and they were photographed enjoying the sights and holding hands in Prague. Passers by saw them at a market eating street vendor food. They were wearing matching khaki jackets and sneakers.
After that fans did not see much of the couple together. Now that the six-month relationship has ended, both are considering new projects.
Neither star ever went public with a relationship before. Past rumors linked Moon Geun Young with her "Mary Stayed Out All Night" co-star Jang Geun Suk and later her "Cheomdamdong Alice" co-star, Park Shi Hoo, but all parties involved denied the rumors. Kim Bum was rumored to be seeing his "Boys Over Flowers" co-star Kim So Eun, but those rumors turned out to be baseless.
Moon Geun Young is currently considering the role of Lady Hyegeyong in the upcoming film "Prince Sado. Yoo Ah In is considering the role of her husband Prince Sado.
Kim Bum, who was last previously seen in the dramas "That Winter The Wind Blows" and "Padam Padam," can also be seen in the Chinese film "Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon."
One reason that many stars avoid going public with a relationship is that they will be in the news again when they break up. At such a time they may well want some privacy.
