Singer/actress BoA and actor Joo Won have confirmed rumors of their breakup.

BoA’s entertainment agency, SM Entertainment, and Joo Won’s agency, Huayi Brothers, told Ten Asia on the 13th that “it is true that the two have decided to go their separate ways.”

One media source reported earlier that BoA and Joo Won had decided to remain as colleagues instead of continuing on with their romantic relationship.

News of the two stars’ relationship broke in January of this year. The two confirmed their romance when they opened up to the public about their relationship.

Joo Won enlisted in the military this past June. BoA has been busy with her duties as an MC on Mnet’s Produce 101 Season 2.
