On August 1, Jonghun's agency FNC Entertainment confirmed Jonghun and Son Yeon Jae have broken up, saying, "After speaking with him, it's true they've broken up. It's been 2 weeks. It seems the burden of going public so unexpectedly when they were just getting to know each other was too much. They naturally drifted apart and went their separate ways."
Jonghun and Son Yeon Jae confirmed their relationship this past June after Dispatch released photos of the two together.
