Girls' Generation's Taeyeon and EXO's Baekhyun reportedly break up
Another celebrity couple has called it quits, as Girls' Generation's Taeyeon and EXO's Baekhyun have reportedly decided to end their one-year relationship.
According to a report from Sports News, multiple music industry insiders have confirmed that the SM power couple is no longer together. The official reason for the breakup is (unsurprisingly) their busy schedules. One source told Sports News that, even though Taeyeon made an effort to support Baekhyun by secretly attending his concert in March, they haven't been able to spend much time together, and they naturally drifted apart.
Taeyeon and Baekhyun were the first in-company couple from SM Entertainment to announce their relationship in June 2014. Even if they're no longer together in a romantic sense, the two will continue to work together with a positive sunbae/hoobae (senior/junior) relationship. SM Entertainment has yet to confirm the news, saying that they are still looking into the truthfulness of the report.
If confirmed, this will mark the third Girls' Generation breakup announcement this year. Tiffany and 2PM's Nichkhun ended their relationship in May, and Yoona and Lee Seung Gi just confirmed their breakup in August. In all three cases, they cited the typical answer of busy work schedules as the reason for the split.
