Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young Send Mixed Signals

A media outlet reported on January 25 that the two weren’t in a relationship anymore. Such a thing happens to every public couple out there, but the agencies were the ones that made their fans confused by first coming out with different stances, then, in about an hour, confirming that the two were indeed, no longer together.
At first, an official for Lee Min Ho said about the news that the two are “still in a good relationship,” while an official from Park Min Young’s side drew the line and said “the two are good seniors and juniors.”
Something similar happened when the couple’s relationship first became known in August 2011; Lee’s side said “it’s hard to call it a love relationship,” but Park’s side said “they have good feelings for each other.”
Lee’s agency seemed to find it hard to acknowledge the relationship in the first place, and then couldn’t really confirm whether the two had broken up. On the other hand, Park’s side quickly admitted to the relationship and announced the end of the relationship faster. Where did this difference in attitudes come from?
Acquaintances of the two stated, “From the beginning, because the press was too eager to decide and say that the two are in a public love relationship, they were in an ambiguous situation.”
They meant that the couple was just starting to build on their relationship after the end of City Hunter, but because it was revealed too early, it became burdensome and awkward for them to continue seeing each other. Because they weren’t really in a relationship, nor out of it, the agencies couldn’t decide how to react.
An acquaintance stated, “It is true that even after the drama ended, they kept in touch and supported each other. But because Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young were busy and didn’t get to see each other as often, the relationship never became serious. They were just good juniors and seniors from the start, but because they were pushed to reveal their relationship through the news reports, they had been forced to become a public couple. It is true, however, that they’re still supportive of each other. Just interpret it this way.”
The acquaintance added, “Please keep your eyes on Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young so that they can overcome the various things that happened to them after City Hunter and mature to better actors.”
Park Min Young says, “It’s true that I broke up with Lee Min Ho”
Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young have broken up in six months.
On January 25, The Daily Sports exclusively reported, “It has been found out that Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young, who started dating in July last year, broke up at the end of the year. Although they broke up last year, they’ve had a hard time to let their agencies know about it until now because they both were considerate of their agencies.”
In regards to this, Kingkong Entertainment, Park’s agency said, “It’s true that Park Min Young has broken up with Lee Min Ho.”
A spokesperson for Kingkong Entertainment said, “It’s a little bit hard to say that they have broken up because they were just getting to know each other when they first confessed that they were dating. They tried to get to know each other better, but their relationship didn’t develop any further from that.”
Lee and Park confessed about their relationship as paparazzi captured and released pictures of their date last year. They both appeared in SBS TV’s drama series City Hunter as lovers and surprised a lot of people later by confessing that they were dating for real.
