After almost three years, Korea's most favourite couple Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae have reportedly parted ways. Suzy's agency JYP Entertainment confirmed the news by saying, "It's true that Suzy and Lee Min-ho recently broke up."

The couple started going out in 2015 although they always preferred to keep their private lives under the wraps. Though the split up rumours popped up many a time before, this is the first time their agencies have confirmed the news. However, the representatives denied to reveal the reason behind the split. It has only been reported that coupe has decided to separate mutually and will continue to remain as good colleagues.

Lee Min Ho broke the hearts of millions of fans when he announced his military enlistment plans early this year. The actor is currently serving as a public service worker in southern Seoul. Due to his health injuries, which he sustained during two car accidents in 2006 and 2011, the actor was asked to serve at a social welfare center instead of mandatory military duties.

There is a widespread report that the long-distance relationship has taken a toll on both the actors mentally and the duo decided to split mutually. While a section of gossip columns drag Suzy's growing closeness with her 'While You Were Sleeping' co-star Lee Jong Suk as the reason behind the split.

However, netizens have immediately thrashed the speculations and have criticised the gossip mongerers for circulation of fake news. Well, the amazing onscreen chemistry between Jong Suk and Suzy will make anyone believe that there is something cooking between them in real life too but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

Earlier this week, actor Joo Won, who is currently serving his mandatory military service and singer BoA announced their break up citing personal problems as the reason. Well, it looks like the long-distance relationship is indeed a tough task for celebrities too.
