Hyun Bin enters marines, splits with Song Hye-gyo

Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Hyun Bin (Secret Garden) entered the marines yesterday-today (That’s what I call Korea’s yesterday, which is our today. Don’t get me started on the tomorrow-today, which is ass backwards and not unlike time travel), to begin his two-year mandatory military service. He was sent off with lots of fans and the accompanying media frenzy, and shed tears of gratitude as he said goodbye and entered the base. And then about eight hours later, news broke that he had split with girlfriend Song Hye-gyo (Full House, The World They Live In).

The two stars met on the 2008 drama The World They Live In, and have been dating for roughly two years. Speculation about their breakup has been circling the media for almost a year, since both of them have spent the better part of 2010 completely entrenched in a myriad of projects, many of which were filmed overseas (Hyun Bin’s Late Autumn in Seattle, Song Hye-gyo’s The Grandmasters in China). But they’ve stayed quiet about the relationship for some time, and it was announced that Song Hye-gyo would not be accompanying Hyun Bin to the marine base.

It turns out that they purposely waited until after he entered the army to make the announcement public, so as to keep the public’s focus on their respective projects rather than their relationship. Personally, I think it’s a smart move. They’ve been dodging breakup speculation for a while, and if this news had broken even one day earlier, Hyun Bin’s entire army sendoff would’ve been about this, and not a tearful-but-happy goodbye.

Statements released indicate a mutual breakup due to busy conflicting schedules, and outside stress and pressure concerning their relationship status. Yeah, I’m gonna go ahead and say that it’s not unwarranted. But hey, you’re Hyun Bin and Song Hye-gyo. Whadduya gonna do?

This doesn’t come as a shocker since everything about their diverging careers screamed we are broken up, and mostly what I’m taking away from all this is that Hyun Bin has got some seriously savvy management. He’s basically done every single thing right, just before his army duty. Hit drama? Check. Massive CF lineup? Check. Big sendoff? Check. Amicable split with girlfriend announced the day after so that every woman turns into a puddle of goo imagining how lonely and heartbroken he is, entering the army? Check.

We’ll miss ya, Binnie. See you in two.

HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY BASH ALL THREE OF THEM (HB, HJW AND SHK) all at once??

Do you have evidence HJW had ANYTHING to do with this?

Why do you have to drag her into this?
This is between HB and SHK...
we'll cross bridges when they come

GOSH!

The signs have been there that it's not a bed of roses on the HB-SHG camp. In fact, many have been expecting the break up to be officially announced.

I am for a HB-HJW relationship.

I am saddened by the news for I thought that they could make it work.

Still hoping that they reconcile after having some down time from work. Being busy can eclipse people's real feelings until they find a quiet time to reflect.

Just my wishful heart talking ....

All celebrities relationships should be kept secret and private, then there will nothing to comment on, no bashing ,no speculation,no antis, not even rumours. Some celebrities manage to do that,and we never hear a peep about their lovelife/relationship. Our need to find out everything about our stars are quite intrusive, to the extend that the relationship is very difficult to nurture ,when time is scarce and public scrutiny is so intense. I guess this is the price of stardom.

No surprise here. This break-up has been pretty much hinted for a long time.

I truly feel for Hye Kyo. Hope that she'll get over it soon. How hard it must be for her to overcome two high-profile but unsuccessful relationships.

The positive thing is, my fantasy for Bi-Kyo couple is revived again in its full glory. True love will find its way back in the end.//end dreaming

...I wish HB and SHG all the best.

It may just be me, but I find its disturbing how fans (even the awesome ones commenting here) confuse the actors with the characters they play.

I hope SHG, HB and HJW each are able to have wonderful, lasting relationships with whomever it is they love, period. Its kinda selfish as fans to want HB and HJW to get together in real life, as if they are really Joo-Won and Ra-Im, who often forget are fictional characters.

Or for us to think its any of our business who any of these actors are dating, 'cause its not.

Exactly. They are still caught up in the moment, which is perfectly normal, considering how sizzling their chemistry was in Secret Garden. However, this biasedness is all because of the Joo Won and Ra In made-up universe that the fans fantasized that has made some nice and not-so-nice comments that bash Song Hye Gyo.

That said, we are only the spectators in their relationship, and it is their business as to what really happened on why they separated.

I am sad, I admit, but that's life. And it's their lives, not mine, to discuss about with others. Gotta admit though, that this is juicy gossip, because, afterall, they're Song Hye Gyo and Hyun Bin. The price they pay to be who they are today.

Wish them all the best in life. And we'll never know what happens in two years. A lot can happen in two years.

Thanks GF for this news.

Sorry to hear about HB and SHG split.

If it is for real, I think it might be actually good for both of them to split at this time considering HB will be in the military, the marines to be exact. Not always easy to keep a relationship when you are physically apart. But I guess they've been physically apart even before the MS came up hence the need to split up officially.

Well, only time will tell. I wish the best for both of them. And if they end up together even after 2 years then it must be true love! We will all celebrate with both of them.

With the schedules they take on it is really hard to maintain a sane relationship. Maybe this time in the marines he will take stock of what are the things in his life that really matter.

As drama-watchers, we are most grateful for the actors' passion and dedication in their craft because we benefit from their hard work when they give of themselves to the roles but this very demanding career also cost them their personal lives if the sacrifices for their time goes unchecked. We hope they will prioritize their own relationships rather than doing a project for the heck of it.

Ultimately, we want a fulfilled and happy HB and SHG (and even HJW) as a person/individuals...to pay them back for all the happy moments they gave us through their work.

Misfortunate news of a celeb breakup, however if I had a beautiful gf like SHG making her rounds while I'm on active duty then I might go crazy [or dead] from all possible frustrations. It's way better and for the best, out of sight out of mind, I suppose, and if destiny really is meant to be then 2 yrs seems a short test of sincere affection.

I'm eager to see if SHG will greet him after HB's 2 yrs service terminates than seeing her send him in-service like this.

Stay in good spirits Hyun Bin, and come back safe.

Take care, be healthy and be safe the whole of your service from the military.

We all be waiting for your safe return!

I was your fan in this relationship HB and SHK.
But what can I say about your breaking up... Hope and pray it's the best decision that you both agreed.
If you both are happy with it then I'll understand.

Goodluck to you both!

Seeing him actually shed tears, IN PUBLIC, of gratitude etc makes me really respect him as a person and not just sex-on-a-stick eye candy who also happens to be a good actor.

I'm not a fans a SHK (doesn't mean I hate her), n I'm not a fans of HB too before (I like him after watch SG), so the break up news is not make me sad or happy, when I read the news I just say "oh, they're break up".. That's it. As same as when they announced that they're dating, I'm saying "oh, they're dating".. :D.
I won't comment about who's better with HB , either SHK or HJW (although I'm a HB-HJW shipper :D), because the article is about HB and SHK, so I won't talk about HJW.

I'm just gonna say,, TRUE LOVE WILL FIND THE WAY.... WHATEVER WILL BE, WILL BE... Always support and hopes for the best for them

What's with the comment about HB being too good for HJW? So shallow!!! No one is too good for someone. Plus, I personally think HJW is very beautiful..inside and out!!!

Anyways, back to HB and SHK. We don't know the inside story...so stop blaming on anyone!! Its not our business! Fans should just support their idols during this hard time..breaking up is never easy!! I may not be a fan of SHK but I sure hope she will get through this....as for Binnie...fighting!! Stay safe!!

he was referring to SHK, i think that episode was filmed jan2011, but they officially announced they called it quits after mar7, right after the military thingy..

but i kinda expected they'll split before the military, that's what men in relationship does when they go military. hope they'll get back together... if not, well, HB and HJW pairing is not that bad though. i seriously think they look so much alike in SG.

Oh whatever , Im just glad to see him gain some weight already and he look much healthier now . Sure a 6 fter will stand out.

And about his relationship with SHK , i dont know much about asian couple , but i have never heard of a couple celebrity like that , I mean both of them try to keep it so private that we keep thinking that they never dated actually.

Maybed they dont have persistent Paparazzi as in USA , i mean they are A-Star in korea their personal life should interest viewers but they never been a picture of both of them in the public , NOT one that make me a bit suspect about the nature of their relationship i m sure they are friend but if they dated or not i m not sure since the broke up just confirm it , it's just too obviously calculated a few hours before he enlisted they broke up.

I don't know much about their personality but it's may be like that , they dated a few months since 2009 , they stayed amical after they got apart for their project oversea , and since it's not convenient anymore and troubelsome for both of them their management announced that they broke up

Anyway , I love them both , i love ha ji won too but since we dont know any of them you can't say what's really going on .

Be healthy !
