Shindong is back on the singles market. After dating model Kang Shi Nae for over a year, a spokesman for the Super Junior star confirms that the pair have split up.
An SM Entertainment rep first revealed to Korea’s Newsen outlet that they’re no longer dating, stating, “From what we know, Shindong and Kang Shi Nae already broke up.”
It’s not known why the pair decided to end their relationship, but it’s believed that 29-year-old Shindong being away on active duty in the Korean military since March had not helped their relationship.
The couple first announced they were an item after being photographed together on a date at the IFC Mall in Seoul’s Yeouido neighbourhood in April in 2014. Unlike many celebrity couples, Shindong actually confirmed the rumors the same day the photos were released.
