After dating for well over a year and a half and causing disappointingly few netizen meltdowns compared to some other SNSD-related couples, SNSD’s Tiffany and 2 PM’s Nichkhun have decided to call it quits on their relationship.
The news was confirmed by JYP Entertainment and SM Entertainment because that’s the sort of thing that music labels have to do in K-Pop.
A representative of JYP Entertainment explained, “It is true that the two recently broke up. The reason they broke up is a personal matter, so there was no mention of it. Nichkhun is currently in the middle of preparations for 2PM’s comeback.”
A representative of SM Entertainment also shared, “After checking with [Tiffany] herself, it has been confirmed that the two of them broke up.”
The two apparently broke up because, surprise, being an idol is a time-consuming job that leaves little time for such luxuries like “a personal life.”
While this news essentially just functions as a reminder that the two were dating in the first place, the real impact will almost assuredly be felt online where the world’s TaeNy shippers are likely marshaling all their hopes and horrifying fan fictions once again.
