Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee Reportedly To Have Broken Up [Confirmed]

Photo Credit: Daily Sports News

A news report has just been published, stating that Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee have broken up after dating for 1 year and 6 months. This is currently just speculation, so if it is confirmed, this article will be updated with more information.

Source: Daily Sports News

[update]

Both agencies have confirmed that Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee have indeed broken up.

“Both Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee’s agencies, IOK Company andManagement Soop, have confirmed the news of the couple’s break up.

The agencies said that the two have been busy with their own schedules and slowly grew apart, naturally resulting in a break up. They expressed their regret concerning the false rumors that have accompanied the break up news, and asked that media refrain from releasing unconfirmed reports, as they are prepared to take action.”

OMG what a roller coaster ride tonight has been with contradictory reports being released left and right. IOK initially stated that Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee were still dating but hours later, released the above statement, confirming the break up. My hunch is that Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee had broken up a while back, but due to the “coincidental” break-up announcement of Gong Hyo Jin, the agency thought it best to postpone Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee’s break-up announcement as to avoid a scandal and any dating rumors between Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung that might arise.

Of course, I feel terrible that this adorable couple, in there own right, have broken up, but I have to admit that my delulu shipper heart is mighty excited about this news. Here’s hoping my ship sails…maybe not anytime soon, but eventually! 😀

      Right?! I’m holding my breath until one of the two agencies confirm this news….

      For now, enjoy some pictures from a group date that some members of the IOIL cast (including JIS and GHJ) went on. They were actually at JIS’ brother’s cafe. It’s adorable and JIS looks gorgeous as always. The title of the article is also quite fitting: “It’s Okay, It’s Friendship

        Cute!!! Heheh I love how we see so many pics of JIS and GHJ in public with the cast (and each other) as opposed to when they’re dating other people or acted in other shows where we didn’t get to see much of them in public. I love that everyone’s so close and going on outings (to family cafes!!) 😀 I hope everyone becomes even closer~~ their friendship is so adorable~

        Mte :p I guess with the theme of the drama it’s to be expected that the level of affections between each of them would run deep. Everyone probably did some sort of personal sharing with each other so as to gain more insight into each character and it probably helped to strengthen the bond between the cast. Remember LKS saying he used to have a mild disorder similar to Tourette’s? That was what I meant when I said personal sharing ^^ and seeing that the cast nodded their heads to his statement my guess is that they all already knew about it, so perhaps they really shared many things with each other, which explains why they’re so close~ it’s not uncommon to have a past experience of depression, conduct disorder, trust issue etc. after all.

        That said, even if JIS did break-up with KMH and he didn’t get together with GHJ, I’ll still be satisfied 😀 because they all have such a beautiful relationship with one another and I’m happy seeing everyone so close! I hope the crew and cast all get together to do another fantastic drama again in the future; the chemistry will be DAEBAK ❤

    So when Dispatch released the photos of them hanging out in JIS bro’s coffee shop, they already knew IT will come out soon…

In that pic, GHJ seem to look away somewhere else, but in my opinion all her ears (and awareness) were following the conversation that happen between JIS and LSK.

        And a less rushed response to everyone freaking out about LSK. There have been no signs to suggest a possibility that JIS and LSK are an “item”. Even if that one picture might have showed some hand/arm grabbing, there is no romantic vibe between them whatsoever. Instead, focus on the way JIS looks at GHJ and the body cues–it actually looks like JIS was trying to grab onto GHJ…If anyone should be rumored with LSK, it would be LKS! See them on that Thailand trip? 😀

        Agreed. For our lovely delulu companions, please don’t misunderstand! LSK probably was just being her bubbly excited self and was grabbing JIS’s arm because he seemed to be walking ahead, and based on GHJ’s body language idk, she seemed to be waiting or looking for someone? Maybe their fans or someone else from the cast/crew. I do hope people don’t start attacking LSK with hostility because of our delusions lol, she’s such a sweetheart! ❤ and anyway, she looks really cute with LKS so I'm secretly rooting for them heheh.

        The thing I find particularly puzzling is the fact that this is even a factor/worry at all. I have no idea how this theory came about since there’s like zero foundational basis for it. It was completely random, and now, all these people continue to propagate it like it’s a legitimate concern…

    Love both compilation especially the first one. The highlight was Drunken Jae Yol kisses Hae Soo. Aww..one of the best kisses in the whole series. The funniest part of this scene was when Hae-soo help Jae Yol up the staircase and saying: Hana..dul..na dul…haha it was hillarious!!

    Best of the best kiss in MY VERSION is when Jae Yol came out of the water after his midnight swim on the beach in Okinawa. Got everything I want from a HOT kiss: HOT guy, good timing, and perfect surrounding. I can perfectly feel the looooonging YET a bit of ‘sexual’ tension between the two hahah! IMHO, it was actually Jae Yol and Hae-soo who has PORTRAYING our JIS and GHJ (not the other way around 😉 The kiss look so real 😀 😀

    My second best kiss is came after that: the making love scene kiss.

      “On Sep 25, according to a report by Sportsseoul, JIS&GHJ spent time with acquaintances (director Kim Kyu Tae, author No Hee Kyung, Sung Dong Il, Lee Kwang Soo, D.O.) not being conscious of the eyes of others. Although their relationship were reported, JIS&GHJ finished an interview for itsokthatslove DVD talking and joking. Acquaintances walked on eggshells around JIS&GHJ but rather JIS&GHJ led happy atmosphere and had dinner with them~”

        This is exactly the reason why I feel that if they were to get together, they could actually make it work and last long~ JIS and GHJ seem to share similar personalities (especially regarding work and relationship issues). They strike me as people who aren’t afraid to go for what they want, and though aware of public scrutiny, would not allow the media or public to control their own affairs. Remember GHJ warning the reporter about the rumour with her ex-boyfriend? And it seems they won’t let their agencies control the status of their relationships either. As they’re already in their thirties, I think they’re ready to handle their personal relations more openly but at the same time, refuse to give in to pressure from the media and fans and their demands. If they want to get along well in public, they certainly will do so. And you know what? IT MAKES US SHIPPERS HAPPY LOL 😀

We outsiders have no right to judge them for whatever decision they decide to make, especially when it comes to the desires of the heart (I’m specifically thinking of the ‘morality police’…)

        I actually find it rather peculiar that we haven’t heard anything from GHJ specifically rebutting these rumors since I feel like she has been rather quick to do so in previous instances (I might be wrong here, so if you know more about her, do share 😀 )….

        Hahaha I’m still not very familiar with her past, but based on reading her news and seeing her talk about herself, I concluded that she probably isn’t a pushover when it comes to the media. If JIS and GHJ have no intentions of dispelling rumours regarding them dating, it’s either they’ve already discussed about this issue within themselves and have come to a common agreement to ignore the press, or that they may have interest in each other and instead of denying any rumours about being potential partners, they’ll let the public slowly get comfortable with their closeness and perhaps take their relationship further in the future.

        Let’s hope it’s the latter 😛

        About GHJ – I have a feeling she ended her relationship a long time ago too, even before or around the time of her accident. This is just what I think based on the weird statement Lee Jin Wook’s company gave regarding her accident (and him jokingly asking the audience to validate his good kisser reputation in a recent tv segment). Pretty sure GHJ has been single for a while now too.

        Yep, I’m 99% sure they’ve both been single for months now.

        WARNING: Delusional Theory Alert!

        I actually think that GHJ’s accident might have been the catalyst for the break-up. My theory is that LJW’s response to the gravity of situation wasn’t sufficient. He might not have been there for her when she needed him most and it proved to be a real test to there love. BUT knowing how close the IOIL family is, I have an inkling that the cast and crew were there for her and perhaps, JIS in particular. An accident like that has to change a person’s outlook on life. It makes one realize how ephemeral life really is so why not live and love to the fullest?

        Too delusional? (Although they are divorced now, think Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey…)

I have seen this happen so many times before – people think they are bad in “relationships” but they are not – they just haven’t been in a relationship with the “right” person and/or their type (cliche but true!).

        And may I also say that seeing (from a number of his projects and BTS) how kind and thoughtful he always is towards his female co-stars I reckon he has “us” women already half worked out anyway lol… :).

        Incidentally, it was amazing that he opened up about his relationship in the first place because he is very private about his personal life. For the record – the fact that he is SO private is something that makes me like him even more and I totally respect him for it – especially in this day and age of celebrities “over-sharing”…

    My goodness! This is the best blog, best discussion and sharing of IOIL. Haha.. glad that i am not alone in this delulu journey.
    Many scenes in this drama convinced me that both are “too close” to be just acting.
    Do you agree?
    And yes, I also suspect both already broke off with their partners before the drama ended, perhaps after the Okinawa trip?!? Oops, was that my imagination run wild? Perhaps, Really something REalLy happened while filming that beach scene when both realized they could feel something about each other? Didn’t he say “if you give me your tongue, I will give mine?”.. Only they knows if this really happened. 🙂
    On the final episode, when both kissed so passionately and JHS lifted her leg and crossed it on JJY, and when both pressed their bodies closed and hard on each other, isn’t this physical intimacy? If they were just acting, they will still be a ‘distance’ and seems like both of them have no boundary.
    In the same episode, when JJS was sopping on his hospital bed after finding his true self, JHS entered and consoled him. She could have chosen to sit down by his side and hugged him or he stand up to hug her, but JJS was standing and let him rest his head on her chest. This is intimate in my opinion and haha, it’s no boundary too. If I am her boyfriend, I can’t accept this kind of acting which is not acting.
    Also, in the films making, I found both are really closed and totally enjoying each other.
    I do hope these “scandals” are real and they are going announce their relationship soon when know that:
    JIS cares & loves GHY (and not JHS)
    GHJ cares & loves JIS (and not JJY)
    Anyway, both are in their 30s, old and experienced enough to understand what is love all about. Hopefully, it is fate that tie them together after this IOIL drama, to let them meet, work together, understand and appreciate each other and most importantly, the power of LoVe. 😀

      I agree! Dramapenchant is the best! I do feel a little bit sorry we’re dominating her lovely blog with delulu thoughts.
      As much as I like to think that they improvised all their bodily movements out of genuine affection, I think those acts (like him resting his head on her tummy) were specifically written in the script. You can see similar gestures and almost identical scenes in NHK’s old dramas too. I was sad seeing that too but I understand that writers like to recycle stuff they like.
      But there are a lot of other things that definitely seem less scripted. When they lovingly caress each other’s hair, face, neck, and ears – these acts definitely seem like they were naturally improvised by our two lovely actors. That kiss at the supermarket seemed unscripted too, seriously. The wrapping the leg around him was probably all Gong Hyo Jin too.
      I think if they developed feelings for each other and I bet they did, it would have during their last month of filming when they did all those emotional scenes. Maybe after her break-up was announced, he felt it was okay to go ahead with his feelings, or maybe it allowed him to recognize that she had also developed feelings for him. That’s my wishful thinking anyway. To think that just this morning, I mentally congratulated myself for finally breaking free from my IOTL addiction.
      Oh yeah, there’s an article somewhere where she admits to having feelings for her co-stars but that it goes away weeks after a drama ends. Since they were known to continue meeting up after filming, it would be harder to get rid of those feelings, right?
      Haha. Sorry dramapenchant. As much as you love shipping, i’m sure you also want your blog back to normal. 🙂

        Awww thanks @Jill and @luvKdrama!

        I seriously don’t mind at all! Feel free to delulu ship as much as you want! 🙂 it makes Delulu Land less lonely! I’ll pobably create a thread specifically for shipping soon since I can’t get sungjin out of my head!

        I have to agree with @Jill that a lot of those gestures were probably scripted but some were potential adlibbs like the supermarket kiss, the dimple-touches, hs playing with jy’s shirt buttons, the head kisses, etc. I’d love it if they told us which gestures were improvised!

        Lol I’ll bet on the developed feelings as well. It would be hard to not develop real feelings for each other after spending such a long time filming so intimately with each other. However, seeing their personalities I think this isn’t temporary and that they are seasoned enough to know what is real and what is reel.

        That’s why I think the Thai trip was so strange because it seemed like jis gave ghj some space so she can work out her feelings for him….and she accepted! ^^

        imo, i feel that for an actress as good as GHJ, it is entirely possible to become one with your character and fall in love with your intended in the show. real actors/actresses invest feelings into their characters and they BECOME their characters, that’s why i believe there’ll always be a part of JHS in GHJ and a part of GHJ in JHS. however, i also believe GHJ can differentiate between her true self and being a fictional character, that’s why she’s always able to break away from those feelings sooner or later once a drama ends.

        in this case though, i feel like there’s a true connection between GHJ and JIS mainly because of their personalities and the sense of realism in the drama. it is a lot easier imagining your lover developing a mental illness and caring for them like in IOIL, than imagining your lover as a prince/millionaire’s son who fell in love with a poor girl lol. when you invest yourself into a fictional person who becomes “real” in a drama that portrays “real” life (or as close to real life anyway) i think it becomes possible to think of the show as a “what if” situation. maybe JIS or GHJ can see themselves dealing with an issue like this 20 years down the road; maybe they have a close friend/relative who is currently dealing with mental illness, i don’t know. but then when you have a show like this with themes that are so HUMAN, so UNDERSTANDABLE, it’s very likely that JIS and GHJ have already formed a deep, emotional and intimate bond with their own characters, each other’s characters AND with each other. this theory is probably the reason fuelling my engine to this ship haha! 😀

    I was just re-watching Ep16 yesterday and this time when I watched the scene of JY and HS lighting a candle for “all the lonely people out there” – I watched it with a different heart – because I kind of thought that in a way “art was imitating life” in that, THAT candle and prayers now also belong and apply to JIS and GHJ in real life as they are alone now…. (hey, we’ll never know but they could’ve been really “praying” and not just acting during those scenes :)…

    It made me feel sad for them both so I hope they will find someone to “come home to” (in whatever “combination” :). Although, I am also a very firm believer that it is better to be “happy and alone” rather than “miserable but in a relationship”.

    Many thanks to dramapenchant for allowing us to delulu ship here. 🙂
    All your posts are so well written and I totally agree with you folks!
    I am pretty much certain that a very strong and close bond between the main leads was already formed.
    In some of the interviews, do you feel that GHJ was trying to avoid too much eye contact with JIS?
    Much to my disappointment regarding the THA trip, I feel that they intentionally stayed apart from public eyes. Well, I prefer to believe if they are hidding, there must be sonething up the sleeve. Otherwise, why the need to avoid and hide.
    I know this is evil but I still hope dispatch will share more photos of them soon.. 🙂

    whew, i actually read ALL the comments ^^ i very much appreciate this space and the level-headed comments (although we are all joined in our shipping). thank you!
    I noticed the eye contact too. she was totally doing it on purpose.
    Made me realize that JIS acted more affectionate, and had more aegyo for her. My bestfriend and I were discussing some of the moments when JIS would be all cute and GHJ would just look at him with a fond bemused smile. That was one of the things that pinged our RRR (reel-real radar).
    If there was nothing at all, why the need for this? Why not just be like her cute grabby TMS self?
    I have a feeling that she was trying not to be drawn in by his charms lol or that she was keeping a respectable distance to avoid any misunderstanding by fans especially because of his relationship status. Maybe she was also in a great deal of pain/discomfort from her injuries during those times. Nonetheless, there was something going on there. Oh, to be the fly on the wall~
    I love the way he always anticipates whenever people need to move or shift and he’s quick to assist her. The others didn’t even have that many chances to help her, he was always there. I’ve seen almost (if not) all of the interviews and appearances and I don’t even listen to what’s happening, I just stare at JIS’s body language– the way he was always turned towards her direction– it’s almost imperceptible but it’s there. Really awesome. (i’m not delusional, my work is related to this lol. I am so raring to give my lengthy two cents about the Dispatch pap photos but I’m scared I will be banned from spamming your comment section.)
    There was a time when the BTSs were not that known yet to the forumers and my friends and I were already going DAEBAK upon seeing Making of 8 where JIS cupped GHJ face to whisper to her. What’s up with that? (rhet) Even the director implied the same thing and the camera guy laughed. GHJ who played it cool at first, burst out laughing when JIS was called out on it.
    Alas, I fear that even if there is affection between those two, the more annoying shippers could even jinx the whole thing. JIS, GHJ fighting!
