Girls’ Generation member Yuri and baseball player Oh Seung Hwan of Hanshin Tigers gradually stopped seeing each other because of busy schedules, according to eDaily Korea.

An acquaintance of Yuri and Oh Seung Hwan spoke with eDaily Korea and said that Yuri and Oh Seung Hwan took down the couple pictures and messages for each other from their KakaoTalk profiles.

Girls’ Generation’s agency, SM Entertainment, and Oh Seung Hwan’s representatives both confirmed the breakup in short statements.

Oh Seung Hwan and Yuri confirmed the relationship this April when photos of the couple were released. In the photos, which were taken last Christmas Eve, Oh Seung Hwan and Yuri were walking in a parking lot after a movie. SM Entertainment said at the time, “Yuri and Oh Seung Hwan met through friends at an event near the end of last year and have been dating since.”

Girls’ Generation released their latest album Lion Heart in August, and have been performing actively in Korea. Oh Seung Hwan has been based in Osaka, Japan, where he plays for the Hanshin Tigers. Yuri and Oh Seung Hwan were spotted together in Japan many times throughout this year.
