Ha Jung Woo and Gu Eun Ae Acknowledge Breakup
Ha Jung Woo and Gu Eun Ae have confirmed their breakup.
“The two broke up sometime around Lunar New Year in January. I believe they drifted apart because they were both so busy with their schedules. They’ve made the decision to cheer each other on as colleagues,” an official from Ha Jung Woo’s agency said on March 6.
The couple boasted close ties, even showing up at the Cannes International Film Festival together, but since the end of last year they’ve been involved in continuous breakup rumors.
The two denied it at the time, but after Gong Hyo Jin and Ha Jung Woo, the stars of Love Fiction, were rumored to be in a relationship, more stories sparked up yet again.
“They hadn’t broken up at the time. The two suffered because of the rumors with Gong Hyo Jin. They broke up because of personal differences and their busy schedules. Please don’t jump to any conclusions,” a source close to Ha Jung Woo said.
Ha Jung Woo and Gu Eun Ae had to come forth to acknowledge their breakup because of press releases recently issued by SBS’ One Night of TV Entertainment.
On March 6, the One Night team released articles that ‘Ha Jung Woo announced he had plans to get married to Gu Eun Ae’, bringing Ha Jung Woo out to explain himself through his agency. “I wasn’t talking about plans for marriage with Gu Eun Ae. I just meant that I wanted to get married sometime around age 38.”
An official from Ha Jung Woo’s agency said, “Gu Eun Ae appeared on SBS’ Strong Heart on January 24 and talked about her relationship with Ha Jung Woo. It was filmed in December 2011, but Ha Jung Woo suffered because it aired after the two had already broken up. He didn’t touch on the separation even during promotions for his film in consideration for Gu Eun Ae. But so many stories started popping up from unexpected sources, leading the two to reveal they had broken up.”
Gu Eun Ae also hinted at their separation when she deleted all posts and pictures she took with Ha Jung Woo on her mini homepage. Gu Eun Ae is showing a determination to be active in many different areas including hosting and acting.
Ha Jung Woo is currently trying to overcome the aftermath of his breakup while concentrating on promotion for his film Love Fiction, and will start shooting the film Berlin from March 26.
