Just as we were rejoicing at the fact that our favourite South Korean stars, Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung were officially dating, recent news have spread that the couple had parted ways. It all started with rumours that the couple was drifting due to their busy schedules. However, YG Entertainment (the management company that they are both under) has made an official statement that the dashing couple have broken up, though they remain very good friends. Instead, they will be having an amicable “sunbae hoobae” (senior-junior) relationship from now on.

The couple had a shortlived public romance as they were only officially dating on 23 April 2017 (though courtship and romance is believed to have started long before, during their costarring days). Naturally, netizens were upset to hear this news, just like the rest of us in BAZAAR. After watching their undeniable chemistry in the K-drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo“, we were shipping the two starlets so hard. Let’s reminisce their cutest couple moments both onscreen and offscreen, because we simply couldn’t help ourselves!

Their adorable behind-the-scenes moments whilst filming.

Remember those heart-melting moments in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo”? Not all of it is scripted. In fact, the most adorable ones are adlib, displaying the genuine chemistry that these two costars had. This BTS video is our favourite because you can clearly see how comfortable they are with each other. It’s almost as if they were just being themselves rather than portraying a cute couple.

When Lee Sung Kyung captioned “See you tonight <3” on this “costar” shot, we knew they were so much more.

Their multiple red carpet appearances always send fans’ hearts aflutter as the couple look so good together, it’s unreal. Plus, their styles compliment each other so well. We love their colour-coordinated appearances the most, such as the one above. Sadly, we won’t be seeing that anymore.

How Lee Sung Kyung clearly called the shots in the relationship.


It seems as if their relationship onscreen has translated into real life and we loved every moment of it.

Can you tell that we can’t get over how perfect they are for each other? They are too cute!! 

Despite the sinking ship, we are sure that fans (just like Jack in Titanic) will “never let go” and secretly hope that there is a chance of these two cuties to get back together in the future.
