  • Actor Uhm Tae Woong (35) and model Lee Young Jin (28) have broken up after two years of dating. They first met in May of 2007 upon being introduced by a mutual acquaintance. However, things have been shaky since this March and the two decided this month to go their separate ways. According to a source close to both, the biggest cause of their break-up was a difference in personalities.
