Actors Baek Jin-Hee and Yoon Hyun-Min split after 7 years together

Korean actors Baek Jin-Hee and Yoon Hyun-Min have split after dating for 7 years, according to a news report published today. The report quoted a friend of the couple saying that their busy work schedules contributed to their breakup. Rumors of the split first emerged last month, after the couple were noticed to be spending more time apart.

The two actors had been dating since working together on the 2015 MBC production My Daughter, Geum Sa-wol. Their performances resulted in a nomination for Best Couple at that year’s MBS Drama Awards. Shortly afterwards, they were revealed to be dating in real life.

The news was met with sadness by fans. Many had hoped that the two would eventually tie the knot, as they had been together for so long.

According to a friend of the former couple, the two actors were now “rooting for each other as colleagues”. The friend also hoped that fans would continue to support them and offer them words of encouragement.
