However, just a day after Hyun Bin entered the Marines, Hyun Bin and Song Hye Go's handlers released a joint statement confirming rumors that the celebrity couple has broken up since January. In their joint statement, the couple expressed that they did not announce their break-up earlier in order to avoid untoward distraction from their respective work. The statement also stated that Hyun Bin did not want to bring up this personal matter while he is set to greet the public for the final time before his enlistment.
The couple met in 2008 while filming their drama "Worlds Within." They had been very successful in keeping their relationship private. When the break-up rumors started last January, Hyun Bin has been very adamant about not discussing his relationship with the actress. In a press interview last February 10, Hyun Bin expressed that: "There are fans who say they need to know about my private life but personally I do not want to show everyone everything. If I do that, what do I have left to show?" The actor also said that: "I do not know what kind of ending people want, but they will find out naturally when the time is right." With Hyun Bin formally serving his military duties, the best time to announce their break-up has come. We wish both Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo happiness as they go on their separate ways.
