You’ve all been there, right? Sometimes it just doesn’t work out in a relationship or marriage. Maybe the timing didn’t work, the chemistry started to fade, or circumstances changed. Whatever the reason, there are plenty of fish in the sea so remain hopeful in the name of L-O-V-E!
And remember, celebrities are no different from the rest of us. They’ve experienced their share of heartbreak, too! Find out how these famous exes have (or have not) moved on with their current flames.
Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young
While filming “City Hunter” in 2011, they started seeing each other but, alas, it was only for a few months. We think it’s for the better anyway as fans have been rooting for the Lee Min Ho-Park Shin Hye (from “Heirs”) and Ji Chang Wook-Park Min Young (from “Healer”) pairings!
Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee
Jo In Sung (from “That Winter, The Wind Blows”) has ladies swooning over his suave looks and charisma, and things are well in the love department, too! In early 2013, his relationship with actress Kim Min Hee became public news, but it ended 18 months later. She actually has a history with pretty boys, having dated Lee Soo Hyuk (from “Valid Love” and “King of High School”) for two years. These days, the rumor mill is running strong about the “It’s Okay, That’s Love” couple of Jo In Sung-Gong Hyo Jin dating in real life. Fingers crossed!
Han Ji Hye and Lee Dong Gun
Word was always buzzing that these two were headed down the aisle. However, their fairytale romance suddenly crumbled with their highly publicized breakup in 2008 after four years together. In 2009, Lee Dong Gun (from “Marry Him If You Dare”) was seen moving on with actress Cha Ye Ryun (from “She’s So Lovable” and “Golden Rainbow”). Meanwhile, Han Ji Hye (from “The Legendary Witch” and “Beyond the Clouds”) got married in 2010.
Jay Chou and Jolin Tsai
What can go wrong with the joining of two Mandopop mega superstars? Everything. It all came crashing down in 2005 when Jolin found out that Jay (from “Pandamen Heroic Detective”) was “hanging out” with Patty Hou (from “Love Buffet”). The silver lining is that both have happily moved on. Jolin has been dating Singaporean model/actor Vivian Dawson for more than three years and Jay recently married model/actress Hannah Quinlivan (from “Ti Amo Chocolate”) a month ago.
Dingdong Dantes and Karylle Tatlonghari
Before the epic #DongYan relationship, which began after meeting on the set of the teleserye “Marimar” in 2007, Dingdong Dantes (from “Dyesebel”) was actually with Karylle Tatlonghari (from “The Kitchen Musical”) for three years. It’s been speculated that Marian Rivera (from “Amaya” and “Darna”) was the cause for the breakup. What do you think?
Ananda Everingham and Jane Janesuda Parnto
The handsome Australian-Laotian actor and beautiful Thai-English actress were a hot item long ago, but these days Ananda (from “The Library” and “Happy Birthday”) has been seeing on-again, off-again girlfriend, Donut Manasnan Panlertwongskul, over the past few years. Meanwhile, Jane (from “Opas the Series Season 2” and “I.C.U. Ghost of Fine Arts University”) is enjoying single life with her best girlfriends, including Paula Taylor from the “True Love Next Door” series!
Barbie Hsu and Blue Lan
These two had active, high-profile relationships before and after dating each other for four years. Blue Lan (from “Apple in Your Eye”) dated actresses Queenie Tai (from “The Way We Were”) and Jocelyn Wang (from “Easy Fortune Happy Life”) while Barbie Hsu was linked with actor/singer Vic Zhou. Happily-ever-afters came for both when they each finally settled down, him with actress Jade Chou and her with a Chinese entrepreneur.
Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson
Teenage love is so innocent and pure, which was the case for Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson (both from “Two of Us”) who dated from 2006 to 2010. The reason they broke up was a rumored relationship between Gerald and Bea Alonzo (from “Only You”), which Alonzo later admitted was a ‘fling.’ Well, we say forget Gerald and good luck with Xian Lim, Kim!
Yoon Kye Sang and Sung Yu Ri
It used to be unheard of for K-pop idols to openly admit romantic relationships. One exception to the rule was Yoon Kye Sang of g.o.d. (from “Beyond the Clouds,” “The Greatest Love” and “Triple”) and Sung Yu Ri of Fin.K.L (from “Feast of the Gods” and “Romance Town”), who started dating in 1999 for six years. Why did it end? His mandatory military enlistment. For lucky Yoon Kye Sang, he has found happiness again with the gorgeous Honey Lee (from “Shine or Go Crazy” and “Modern Farmer”) since February 2013.
Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo
Everyone could feel the on-screen chemistry between these “World’s Within” costars, and fans cheered when it turned into a real-life romance in 2009. Sadly, it barely lasted two years. We bet you didn’t know that before Lee Byung Hun (from “IRIS”) married Lee Min Jung (from “Cunning Single Lady” and “Smile, You”), he dated Song Hye Kyo in 2003 for about one year!
