Yoona and Lee Seung Gi’s Split: Is It Because Lee is Enlisting For His Military Service?

One of Korea’s most popular couples has broken up, “Girl’s Generation” Yoona and Lee Seung Gi. The couple dated for almost two years before they called it quits. A lot of their fans were devastated with the news and most of them have come up with theories as to why the couple broke up. One of them is because of Lee Seung Gi’s military enlistment. Read on for more details.

South Korea has a mandatory military service and apparently, Lee Seung Gi hasn’t completed his yet. Various forums that talk about the couple’s breakup talk about the star’s return to the military. Most of the fans are talking about him going back to the military now that he’s finally broken up with Yoona.


According to Inquistr, it is S.M. Entertainment that has confirmed the breakup. They did it by releasing an official statement OSEN, “Yoona and Lee Seung Gi have broken up. They have decided to stay on good terms.”

However, Lee Seung Gi hasn’t announced yet if he’s enlisting for the military or not. On the other hand, Yoona plans to focus more on her group instead of her personal matters.

The couple’s busy schedules may be the cause of their breakup as Yoona recently filmed a Chinese period drama “God of War Zhao Yun.” She has moved on to promoting her band’s fifth studio album titled “Lion Heart” while Seung Gi is busy promoting his album and he is currently filming a Korean movie titled “Love Forecast.”

The good thing, though, is that it looks like they are both handling the breakup well by keeping themselves busy. However, it’s still sad that these two are over.
