IU and Lee Jong Suk are reportedly in a relationship!
On December 31, Dispatch reported that the two stars have been dating for approximately four months. According to Dispatch, the two met on “Inkigayo” 10 years ago, and over time, their friendship evolved into romance.
Dispatch claimed that IU and Lee Jong Suk spent Christmas together in Nagoya, Japan, where they enjoyed a quiet three-day vacation together at a luxury resort. The vacation was said to have been personally planned by Lee Jong Suk, who reportedly flew IU and her younger brother out to Japan first and even prepared a pick-up service for them at the airport, then joined them later on.
According to anonymous sources quoted in the report, the couple’s families are already aware of the relationship. IU famously sang the celebratory song at Lee Jong Suk’s younger brother’s wedding earlier this year, and Lee Jong Suk personally invited IU’s younger brother along on their Christmas vacation.
Dispatch also published photos of IU and Lee Jong Suk at the airport on their way to and back from Nagoya.
Lee Jong Suk’s agency HighZium Studio has since responded to the report by stating, “We are currently in the midst of checking whether it’s true.”
The previous night, Lee Jong Suk was swept up in dating rumors due to his acceptance speech at the 2022 MBC Drama Awards.
