By  | 

2018 seemed like it was a good year for love for the K-Pop world. Lee Dong Wook and Suzy, Park Shin Hye and Choi Tae Joon, Oh Yeon-seo and Kim Bum — all of those South Korean couples announced their relationship over the course of the past few weeks. Unfortunately, the relationship train ends now.

Earlier today, it was reported that Jang Hyunseung and Shin Soo Ji have decided to end their relationship after seven months of dating. “Jang Hyunseung and Shin Soo Ji have chosen to break up,” an industry rep stated. “Jang Hyunseung decided to focus more on his music, while Shin Soo Ji decided to focus on her bowling practice.”

The 28-year-old musician, who is often credited as Hyunseung, and the 27-year-old former rhythmic gymnast and bowler, confirmed their relationship in January of this year.

Hyunseung hit the K-Pop scene as a member of the boy group Beast, which won the award for Artist of the Year at the Melon Music Awards in 2011. That same year, he embarked on a separate journey, as part of the duo Trouble Maker with Cube Entertainment labelmate Hyuna, releasing the “Trouble Maker” single. It wasn’t until April 19, 2016, that he announced his official departure from Beast to continue as a solo act.
