The star couple of Hallyu actress Choi Ji Woo (36) and actor Lee Jin Wook (30) have separated. Choi Ji Woo’s agency CJW Company said on April 28, “Choi Ji Woo told us that she had broken up with Lee Jin Wook early this year. They ended their relationship with no hostile feelings towards each other, and they reportedly continue to have a good relationship as actors by cheering each others’ activities.”
Lee Jin Wook’s agency HB Entertainment also said, “Lee Jin Wook confirmed that he had broken up with Choi Ji Woo.” Choi Ji Woo and Lee Jin Wook became a couple while they appeared together in the MBC drama “Air City” in 2007. When Choi Ji Woo participated in the press conference held in Japan for the drama “Star’s Lover” on March, 2009, she indirectly admitted the relationship with Lee Jin Wook by saying, “If there comes good news that requires your congratulatory message, I will directly tell you right away.” Their relationship faced obstacles when Lee Jin Wook joined the army in May of the same year, so they reportedly ended up finishing their relationship. Lee Jin Wook completed his military obligation and was discharged from the army last month.
