Actress Kim Hye-soo has broken up with her boyfriend Yu Hae-jin, their agencies confirmed Monday.
The romantic relationship between the 41-year-old stars was revealed last January when they were spotted on a secret date at night.
The agencies said the two actors are no longer in a relationship, but didn’t elaborate on when and why they ended it.

“As news reports on the stars’ breakup poured in this morning, I was told by Kim Hye-soo that she broke up with Yu. But I don’t know the details as it is a private matter,” said Kim’s agent Kim Nam-hyung.
The two stars are reported to have first met while filming the 2001 comedy “Kick the Moon” and their relationship blossomed after co-starring in the 2006 gambling flick “Tazza: The High Rollers.”
When the relationship was made public last year, Kim and Yu were called “beauty and the beast.”
Recently, Yu did not show up at the wedding ceremony of Kim’s younger brother, sparking speculation about their relationship.
Kim starred in the MBC TV drama “Home Sweet Home,” which ended in December, and Yu’s recent film credits include “Moss.”
