The tabloid also reported that Lee Min Ho and Suzy returned to Korea separately.
They were not working on any drama together and hence the tabloid stated that they had a romantic date in London. At first, their representatives denied the relationship but later they confirmed that the couple is indeed dating. Suzy said at that time:
“Lee Min ho is warm-hearted and full of empathy, so I had a good feeling toward him. I’m confused because I didn’t think making it public so soon. I just want to be supported.”
Fan’s reaction on their separation
The couple’s fans and viewers gave positive reactions and thumbs up to their relationship.
In March 2016 after their one-year anniversary of togetherness, they started wearing matching couple rings. Lee’s ring caught the attention of the fans when he was promoting KyoChon Malaysia on 25 March 2016. Suzy was seen wearing a similar ring during her Nescafe promotion. In April 2017, they held a two-year anniversary party in Seoul for their close friends.
The couple had a busy schedule but managed to have a date at least once a month. On 16 November 2017, news came that the couple has split after almost three years of been together.
An insider told Ilgan Sports:
“Lee Min Ho and Suzy recently broke up. They separated because of personal reasons and remain friends.”
Lee had joined the mandatory military service at the Gangnam City Hall on 12 May 2017 and people speculated that this was the reason for the breakup.
They were seen together again and an insider claimed:
“Lee Min Ho and Suzy have started dating again recently. They are continuing to meet each other in secret.”
But Lee’s agency MYM Entertainment denied the rumor and stated:
“After checking with him, it is not true that he is back together with Suzy. It is also absolutely not true that they went on a date together.”
JYP Entertainment, Bae’s agency also clarified:
“We have checked with her and it is not true that they are dating again.”
Suzy Bae and her current relationships
After her split from Lee, Suzy is dating another handsome South Korean actor called Lee Dong-Wook. There is a wide age difference in the couple’s age with Suzy been 24 and Dong-Wook’s age is 37 years. Lee Min Ho has remained single and is busy with military service.

Lee Min Ho and his past relationships
Lee Min Ho also had his share of relationships in the past. In 2011, he had dated his City Hunter co-star Park Min Young for five months. Park is called the commercial queen in Korea.
Lee’s representative released a statement at that time which read:
“They started to have good feelings toward each other through ‘City Hunter.’ It seems like they’re at a stage of getting to know each other right now, but I’m not sure how much those feelings developed so far.”
Park’s agency also made a statement:
“It is true the two have good, mutual feelings for each other. I think she’s (Park Min Young) trying to get to know the human-side of Lee Min Ho, not the actor Lee Min Ho. But you always have to be careful with these relationships, and the agency doesn’t know everything about the celebrity’s private life.”
Busy schedules were the reason for their separation according to their reps.
In the same year, Lee had also dated an ordinary girl for 6 months. She was two years younger to him and the breakup was due to personality incompatibility.
