Actors Yoon Kye Sang and Lee Hanee have recently decided to call it quits on their seven-year relationship. Yoon has also reportedly left his management agency, Saram Entertainment.

Saram Entertainment revealed on June 11 that “Yoon Kye Sang and Lee Hanee recently ended their romantic relationship and have made the decision to remain as good colleagues.” The agency also asked for the public to “continue showing interest and support for the two actors.”

Yoon has also decided to part ways with Saram Entertainment. A source from the agency stated: “The company and Yoon Kye Sang mutually agreed to terminate the contract. Kye Sang is expected to take a break for the time being. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for Kye Sang, who had been with us for a long time.”

Yoon signed an exclusive contract with Saram Entertainment in 2013, and Lee Hanee signed on with Saram in the following year after being introduced to the agency by Yoon.  

The recently separated couple went public with their relationship in 2013. The two would be seen displaying their affection for one another during public occasions, and was one of the most-loved celebrity couples.

As recently as March, Lee uploaded a picture from a date she went on with Yoon when the two went out to grab dessert, and titled the photo “Mr. Yoon Kye Sang and Ms. Lee Hanee.” Although breakup reports about the star couple would pop up from time to time, they would be resolved as nothing but rumors. Yoon and Lee also raised two dogs together named Gamsa and Haeyo. When combined, the dogs’ names spell out “Gamsahaeyo” (“Thank you” in Korean).
