IU and Lee Jong-suk Confirmed To Be In a Relationship

Today, on December 31, a Korean media news outlet Dispatch revealed that IU, a singer-songwriter, and Lee Jong-suk, an actor, have been dating for 4 months and spent Christmas together in Nagoya, Japan.

Just yesterday, Lee Jong-suk won the Grand Prize at the 2022 MBC Drama Awards for the drama “Big Mouth.” During his acceptance speech, he mentioned and thanked a person who has helped him grow and be a better person. That “someone” is now revealed to be IU.

“…after I finished my military service, when I had a lot of worries, fears, and pain, there was a person who helped me think about good direction and positive thoughts. 

I’m taking this opportunity to tell a story that I really wanted to say. I want to say that I thank you for always being cool and that I liked you a lot for a very long time and that I respect you very much. 

Looking at this friend, I thought a lot about how I should’ve lived harder and that I should’ve been a good person. I’ve reflected on myself, thinking I wish I had done better in my past and were a better person. I will do my best to become a better person. I think I, who wants to be a better person, will be able to work hard for a while as I have received such a big award at this time. I will become a good, hardworking actor.”
