‘SKY Castle’ stars Kim Bo-ra, Jo Byung-gyu confirm breakup

Couple and SKY Castle co-stars Kim Bo-ra and Jo Byung-gyu have split up after being together for a year and a half, their agencies confirmed.

On August 3, reports circulated that the two have ended their relationship. In response, Kim Bo-ra’s agency Moment Global Entertainment confirmed the news and said that the actors have naturally grown apart from each other but have returned to being good acquaintances. Jo Byung-gyu’s agency HB Entertainment also verified the reports, citing the busy schedules of both stars as the reason for the breakup.

Kim and Jo revealed that they were in a relationship in February of last year, following the success of their then project SKY Castle, where the romance between the actors reportedly developed.

After SKY Castle, Jo Byung-gyu was cast in other popular series last year, such as He Is Psychometric and Arthdal Chronicles. He also took part in the Baeksang Arts Awardee for Best Drama Stove League (2019–2020). He is set to star as lead in OCN’s upcoming drama Amazing Rumor, which is slated to air in November.

Meanwhile, Kim Bo-ra recently starred in Her Private Life (2019) and Touch (2020). She was also cast in one of MBC’s upcoming SF8 episodes, SF8: Astronaut Joan.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
