Lee Min Ho, Suzy Bae Breakup: Lee Dong Wook’s Girlfriend Was Never Comfortable With ‘Legend Of The Blue Sea’ Actor’s Popularity
Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae’s breakup came as a complete shock since the pair was once dubbed as South Korea’s power couple. In fact, many even believed that wedding bells would soon be ringing for the Legend Of The Blue Sea actor and former miss A singer. Unfortunately, they ended their romance just after two years of dating, and it appears that their split may have something to do with The Heirs star’s popularity.
The 30-year-old South Korean actor and Suzy Bae didn’t elaborate as to why they broke up but cited “personal reasons.” Lee Min Ho and the While You Were Sleeping actress then insisted that they remained friends despite their failed romance.
Previous reports revealed that Suzy Bae had never gotten used to Lee Min Ho’s super popular status that could have affected their relationship. A source shared that although the actress was open to dating men, she was always keen to protect her image and was afraid to get negative publicity, as reported by Koreaboo.
"Suzy also cares for her family so much that she is always careful in her actions that may affect her family," the insider shared, as translated by the site. “Suzy and Lee Min Ho never worked together, so they didn’t have any mutual people in the industry."
Although Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae already made their romance official at the time, the source noted that the Uncontrollably Fond actress was still not comfortable in making their relationship so open to everyone. "Even during their dates, Suzy had a hard time not trying to get exposed to the public," the insider added.
Before Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae’s breakup, rumors were swirling that the Boys Over Flowers actor was ready to secure his future with the former miss A singer by popping the question before heading to his mandatory military service. However, reports revealed that the While You Were Sleeping star was not yet ready to make a big leap to their relationship.
Despite all the wedding speculations, Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae’s breakup became official. The actress is currently dating Goblin star Lee Dong Wook, while the Legend Of The Blue Sea actor is still very single.
