Netizens speculate the reason behind Yoona and Lee Seung Gi’s breakup

Fans and netizens have come up with a reason that had a big impact on Yoona and Lee Seung Gi’s breakup.

Earlier we reported that Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and Lee Seung Gi have broken up. After initial reports, many netizens showed mixed feelings toward the news only to be followed by SM Entertainment’s official statement regarding the breakup.

With many fans initially loving the news that the two were dating, they also showed much disappointment in light of the split.

However, there are many speculations in why the top star couple has decided to breakup. In South Korea, it is mandatory for all male citizens to enlist in the military for around two years. With Lee Seung Gi almost at age 30, there is not much time for him to push back the enlistment.

With military enlistment being one of the biggest reasons why couples in their 20’s break up in South Korea, many netizens speculate that Lee Seung Gi having to enlist in the army soon had a big impact on their breakup.

Here are some of the top netizen reactions below:
