Jiyeon’s agency, MBK Entertainment, confirmed, “the two have broken up in December of last year, they have decided to remain as a senior and junior who support each other.” FNC released a similar statement.
The reason for the breakup was due to busy schedules. Jiyeon had been busy with T-ara’s most recent album activities while Lee Dong Gun had been occupied with filming KBS2’s Laurel Tree Tailors. Both agencies stated, “they were both too busy with schedules to meet each other. So they naturally separated.”
Jiyeon and Lee Dong Gun were first announced to be dating in July of 2015, after meeting on the set of their film Encounter.
