Subject: Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Jang Woo have broken up?
Sports Seoul states that a source close to the actress revealed, “Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Jang Woo have broken up. Although they couldn’t continue as girlfriend and boyfriend, they will continue to have a good sunbae-hoobae relationship.”
The close friend also revealed a possible reason for their breakup sharing, “Oh Yeon Seo admitted to the dating scandal. But Lee Jang Woo’s camp took on a passive attitude and cut off contact with the press. It seems Lee Jang Woo’s passive attitude towards the scandal served as the trigger to their break up.”
A staff member of the two’s drama ‘Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming‘ allegedly stated, “Because the two of them normally got along well, I would’ve never guessed that they would break up. When I see Oh Yeon Seo getting past her pain from the breakup and continuing to focus on acting, I applaud her as a good actress.”
This latest report by Sports Seoul brings about confusion as they seem to ignore all the other statements released by Oh Yeon Seo’s agency after their initial confirmation, leaving netizens to ask, “They admitted they were dating..?”, and others to propose that perhaps it was the lack of response from Lee Jang Woo’s side that led Oh Yeon Seo’s agency to change their position.
To recap on this whole ordeal, Oh Yeon Seo’s agency first confirmed the dating rumors, then they slightly modified their position to say that although the two have been seeing each other, it’s too early to call them a couple, and then did a complete 180 when they denied the rumors completely, saying that the two were no more than sunbae-hoobae. Lee Jang Woo’s side never offered a statement on this issue, leaving things to die down on their own.
The dating scandal also brought about controversy due to Oh Yeon Seo’s onscreen marriage with MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon on ‘We Got Married‘ at the time. Through a tearful episode of the faux-marriage program, Oh Yeon Seo also told Lee Joon stated that she and Lee Jang Woo weren’t dating. However, Lee Joon then left a mysterious post, which fans wondered was pointing at his ‘marriage’ with the actress, and soon after the two pulled out of the show due to scheduling issues.
In response to this latest ‘break up’ report, Oh Yeon Seo’s agency has once again spoken up, stating, “We are a bit shocked since a break up report has come about when the two haven’t dated… The two were swept up in a dating scandal back in January, but they weren’t a couple. They’ve always been just good sunbae-hoobae.”
Lee Jang Woo’s side has once again decided to remain quiet on the issue.
Whatever happened between the two in the past, it seems Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Jang Woo’s romance only exists onscreen now, at least until the 17th, when their daily drama is scheduled to end.
