According the two celebrities’ agencies, the two have decided to split after ten months of dating.
On Nov. 13, BoA’s agency, SM Entertainment released an official statement regarding the breakup. “It is correct that the two have decided to part ways.”
Actor Joo Won’s agency also acknowledged the break-up, saying, “The two recently broke up. The reason is not known because it is a personal matter.”
The two officially announced that they were dating back in Jan. It was BoA’s first time going public with her dating life, and the two received much attention for their older-woman younger-man relationship.
Joo Won enlisted in the military back in June and will finish his service on Feb 15, 2019. BoA previously appeared on Mnet’s Produce 101 Season 2 as a mentor.
