Ahn Jaehyun had ever said that the reason he got married early (in korean age) is because he just love Goo Hyesun so much. But now he asked for a divorce while she doesn’t even want that.
I’m the one that’s broken heart. Shit like this got me too insecure about the world 😞

Despite the sad news, there are still many celebrity couples whose relationships are going strong after many years. Here are a few who make us believe in love again:
1. Big Bang’s Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin
To start off the list is of course, Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin whose love story sounds like it came straight from a movie.
The two are said to have fallen in love when Min Hyo Rin starred in the music video of Taeyang’s song “1AM.”
Min Hyo Rin is famously known to be Taeyang’s first and only girlfriend. They are still in close contact despite Taeyang serving in the military for his mandatory service.
2. FT Island’s Choi Minhwan and Yulhee
This is a relatively new couple consisting of FT Island’s drummer Choi Minhwan and LABOUM’s former member Yulhee.
The two first met when Yulhee and her group gave their album to FT Island, with Minhwan sitting uninterested in the corner. Yulhee couldn’t keep her eyes off him even then. They eventually went on a blind date together after two years, where Minhwan famously said:
Chubby, do you want to be mine?
— Choi Minhwan
The two are well known for their interactions with their son, Jaeyul, in KBS‘s Mr. House Husband. Now the couple have also welcomed twins, for a total of three children.
3. S.E.S’ Eugene and Ki Tae Yong
Legendary K-Pop female idol, Eugene, married her co-star Ki Tae Yong from the drama Creating Destiny.
He revealed what made Eugene stand out from the others, saying that she never participated in gossip with the staff during breaks.
For the last nine years with her, I haven’t heard her talk [badly] about others. I thought that was a bit special, and afterwards we communicated well so we started dating.”
— Ki Taeyong
The two got married on July 23, 2011. They welcomed their daughter, Rohee, in 2015 who appeared in KBS’ The Return of Superman, and another daughter Rorin in 2018.
4. H.O.T’s Moon Heejun and Crayon Pop’s Soyul
First generation idol Moon Heejun and Crayon Pop’s Soyul surprised everyone with their wedding announcement back in 2016.
Two two met in a music show during Heejun’s 2013 comeback stage. He initially thought she was a fan and not a singer since she was wearing a school uniform. They eventually started dating and he soon fell in love.
I fell in love with her when I was struggling with my diet. She went out of her way to bring this heavy box to me that was filled with ten 1.5-liter bottles of burdock tea, which she had brewed and prepared herself.
— Moon Heejun
Soyul, meanwhile, explained more about their relationship during KBS’s The Return of Superman.
When we were dating, I wanted to eat these walnut cookies so badly for about a month. As soon as I told him I wanted to eat them, Heejun bought some and brought them to me. That’s when I told him I wanted to marry him.
The two have a child together, Jamjam, who stole hearts around the world on The Return of Superman.
5. HaHa and Byul
Next on the list is another surprise couple. Fans of Running Man and Infinite Challenge know HaHa as one of their best comedians and a committed family man. This wasn’t always so as HaHa and Byul dated for 6 years in secret before they got married in 2012. Despite the secrecy, they were happily accepted as a couple by the public.
On July 2018, HaHa revealed that in the six years he lived with Byul, they rarely fought.
When we quarreled, I realized that my wife was [usually] the right person. I accepted and considered it a suggestion to change my wrong actions, so that a fight would not occur.
The couple welcomed their third child and first daughter, Song, in July 2019 in addition to their two sons Dream and Soul.
6. Sean and Jung Hye Young
Last on this list is the legendary couple Jinusean‘s Sean and actress Jung Hye Young who were married for 17 years since 2004.
Sean revealed on an episode on KBS’s Happy Together that the moment he saw Hye Young, he was able to picture a life together.
I’m going to ask for her number, and I’m going to marry her.

The two are known for their philanthropic ways, donating to various charities throughout the years on behalf of their family of six.
In 2017, Sean romantically wrote various messages on his Instagram for their 6,000 day anniversary, including a note for other couples.
It takes two to make things go right. Two become one.
