lee min ho and suzy

After a long-long suspense over their relationship status that even triggered break-up rumours, star couple Lee Min-ho and Bae Suzy have reportedly broken the silence and confirmed that they are still dating each other. But still media speculations about their “breakup” and discussions about the potential causes continue to pour in.

On August 1, the agencies of both the actors released statements debunking all those break-up speculations, according to SoompiBoth the statements released by Lee Min-ho’s agency MYM Entertainment and Bae Suzy’s agency JYP Entertainment read, “The rumor about the couple’s break-up is false.”

But why then was the silence maintained so long on their relationship status despite widespread break-up rumours? Soompi quoted a source from MYM Entertainment, “Due to his busy schedule in K-Con 2016, Lee Min-ho was unable to confirm the truth. We later heard directly from him that they are still meeting well.” JYP Entertainment also made it clear, “Suzy has clarified the truth with us. She says that they are still dating.”

Nevertheless, even on August 1, news reports about their break-up were published. While the Indian edition of IBTimes also confirmed that the couple are still together on Monday, the Singapore edition of the same publication reported on the same day a rumour that the pair has parted ways. It quoted an insider report published on Sports Today which had learned from an anonymous source that “both the stars have agreed to split due to their busy work schedules.” It wondered whether the couple was parting ways due to new found love?

On the same August 1, Morning Ledger also published a report about their break-up. Meanwhile, Yibada termed the break-up news as publicity stunt to promote their respective projects.

Such rumours had been circulating for months now, but the star couple chose to remain silent on the rumours. While curious fans kept on browsing the net for updates on their relationship status, media outlets gave out occasional speculations. One such speculation even dragged Song Joong-ki into this issue, stating that Bae Suzy has been seeing the new star.
