It was a big day for Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young fans, as rumors of the couple’s separation popped up and were initially received with mixed reactions among the stars’ agencies.

A media outlet reported on January 25 that the two weren’t in a relationship anymore. Such a thing happens to every public couple out there, but the agencies were the ones that made their fans confused by first coming out with different stances, then, in about an hour, confirming that the two were indeed, no longer together.

At first, an official for Lee Min Ho said about the news that the two are “still in a good relationship,” while an official from Park Min Young’s side drew the line and said “the two are good seniors and juniors.”

Something similar happened when the couple’s relationship first became known in August 2011; Lee’s side said “it’s hard to call it a love relationship,” but Park’s side said “they have good feelings for each other.”

Lee’s agency seemed to find it hard to acknowledge the relationship in the first place, and then couldn’t really confirm whether the two had broken up. On the other hand, Park’s side quickly admitted to the relationship and announced the end of the relationship faster. Where did this difference in attitudes come from?

Acquaintances of the two stated, “From the beginning, because the press was too eager to decide and say that the two are in a public love relationship, they were in an ambiguous situation.”

They meant that the couple was just starting to build on their relationship after the end of City Hunter, but because it was revealed too early, it became burdensome and awkward for them to continue seeing each other. Because they weren’t really in a relationship, nor out of it, the agencies couldn’t decide how to react.

An acquaintance stated, “It is true that even after the drama ended, they kept in touch and supported each other. But because Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young were busy and didn’t get to see each other as often, the relationship never became serious. They were just good juniors and seniors from the start, but because they were pushed to reveal their relationship through the news reports, they had been forced to become a public couple. It is true, however, that they’re still supportive of each other. Just interpret it this way.”

The acquaintance added, “Please keep your eyes on Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young so that they can overcome the various things that happened to them after City Hunter and mature to better actors.”
