Lee and Jung went public with their relationship in 2017 after having worked together the drama My Father Is Strange. The two maintained their relationship throughout Lee’s mandatory military service which he started in October 2017.

Koreaboo reports that their breakup was first revealed by Dispatch which stated: “They spent a lot of time apart. They had a lot of schedules, so they drifted away from each other. They have decided to just focus on their own work now.”
