Rapper Microdot and Korean actress Hong Soo-hyun have broken up, Hong’s agency Content Y confirmed Tuesday.

“We don’t know the details because it is a private issue,” the agency said when asked about the breakup. The official response came after a news report that they had gone their separate ways in December.

It was reported that the rift in their relationship began when Microdot stayed out of public view following a controversial incident involving his parents. Microdot’s parents were reportedly accused of fraud by their acquaintances and fled to New Zealand when he was 5 years old.

Microdot and Hong first met on the Channel A program “City Fisherman” in October 2017. They publicly announced their relationship in July 2018.

Microdot gained attention through seasons four and six of the hip-hop audition program “Show Me the Money.” Hong is well-known for her roles in dramas, including “The Princess’ Man” and “Goodbye Dear Wife.” She currently stars in season two of tvN’s “Seoulmate.”
