Following news of Bae Yong Joon‘s (43) relationship with Goo So Hee (29) had come to an end, Dispatch revealed that the businessman and actor had broken up with her on her birthday.
According to the media outlet, an acquaintance shared that the two had been dating for 400 days — 11 months — up until her birthday on November 25th, where Bae Yong Joon broke up with her due to their differences.
The couple had been dating even before it was revealed in December 2013 by Japan’s Nikkan Sports, the couple spending Goo So Hee’s first birthday together. Bae Yong Joon prepared a surprise party during their travel in Japan, which greatly moved her. However, it turns out the two individual’s differences were too great for the relationship to continue.
Goo So Hee is fourteen years younger than Bae Yong Joon and the two also originate from different backgrounds. Goo So Hee is from a very rich family in Korea with her father currently as the CEO of LS Industrial Systems with long line of history. On the other hand, Bae Yong Joon is one of the richest celebrities in Korea.
It was, however, reported that the cause of the breakup between the two was may have been due to Goo So Hee’s parents. Bae Yong Joon tried hard to fit in with his possible father in-law by learning to scuba dive, learning to ride a motorcycle, and other extreme sports as his future father in-law enjoyed them as well. All the efforts Bae Yong Joon seemed to have moved the CEO and had extended the Korean actor an invitation to the dinner event at UN Village.
The real reason for their breakup is unknown but it can be narrowed down to two reasons. Either Bae Yong Joon failed to satisfy the parents in the end or simply the two struggled due to their differences in personality.
Most likely, the reason is that the couple were unable to reconcile was due to the differences in their personalities due to their large gap in age. An acquaintance had reported that they had gone through several breakups throughout the relationship and getting back together numerous times due to this reason.
On her last birthday, Bae Yong Joon had asked Goo So Hee for a breakup and she had agreed to do so. After their breakup, Bae Yong Joon soon apologized and asked to get back together but, Goo So Hee had denied.
It seems an exotic couple is no different from any ordinary public couples in terms of their love life.
