It was only five weeks ago that the relationship between aespa’s Karina and actor Lee Jae Wook was made public and confirmed. Given that they had reportedly only just started dating, it seemed like tough timing to be dealing with all the attention, and now they’ve reportedly broken up, partly due to that attention.

According to an exclusive report from Tenasia, Karina and Lee Jae Wook ended their relationship five weeks after their dating was made public. Tenasia reported that the reason they broke up was due to the mental pain they received from malicious comments directed at them, as well as feeling sorry for their fans.

C-JeS have confirmed they’ve broken up, but cite a more generic focus on work, “Actor Lee Jae Wook decided to end the relationship in order to focus on his work that he is currently filming. The two will remain good colleagues and support one another.”

In a way it’s not surprising as Karina even had to release a handwritten apology to fans for the news, but it’s discouraging that things almost seem to be going backwards in this regard as fans likely feel more empowered than ever to be little controlling psychos over their faves’ dating lives. And international fans can try to hide behind Korean fans, but they are just as bad, they just find a different way to hate every relationship. You know, stuff like finding out the guy pictured above is apparently “ugly”.
