After months of break up rumours, Koyote singer Shinji and her basketball player boyfriend have announced they are calling it quits
Shinji, 31, had been dating Yoo Byung Jae, 28, for 19 months but, says a rep for the singer, "due to issues such as differences in personality, [they] have ended their romantic relationship."
Last month, reports surfaced in Korean media that the couple were on the verge of breaking up. "They disagree on too many things," a source said at the time.
But the rep adds: "There are no ill-feelings. They've decided to return to being comfortable friends. We understand that the two have settled their feelings for one another."
The pair had been dating since May last year, but kept things under wraps until September when Shinji jubilantly wrote on her blog: "I'm not alone! I'm being loved!"
Dance group Koyote returned to the charts in January with the Brave Brothers produced single "Repeat The Same Words" and are said to be returning with a follow-up in 2013.
