Breaking (up) news! Soo Jin Yang has apparently broken up with her KPGA star boyfriend Sung Hyuk Kim and has recently been spotted in the company of Korean baseball star Hee Kwan Yoo.
Yoo, 29, and the KLPGA fashionista Yang, 24, are setting the internet ablaze with the rumor; she is currently the second most searched topic on one site I went to.
No signs of wedding bells; this is from an old photo shoot!
Yoo plays for the Doosan Bears and was an All-Stars MVP (the article did not say what season, but presumably this year?). Here is a TMZ-like website containing some pix taken of one of their dates. It's cool to look at this site just to see how something like this gets tabloidized in Korea!
Apparently they met three months ago. Yang and Kim, last year's top KPGA player, had been quite the item last year, appearing at awards shows together and doing winter training together. But Kim recently gave an interview where he said he was out dating again, meaning that he and Yang had fizzled.
Another fun selfie from Soo Jin

It's always interesting to see how the Korean media covers stuff like this. I'll let you know if there are any other developments! Meanwhile, congrats and happiness to the new couple!
