Singer and actress IU has made headlines once again, but this time it’s not for her music or acting skills.
In an interview ahead of the release of her debut feature film, “Dream,” IU revealed that she sometimes turns to her boyfriend, actor Lee Jong Suk, for help with her acting.
The revelation came during a press event for “Dream,” where IU was asked if she confides in her boyfriend about her acting concerns.
IU responded by saying, “Since we are in the same profession, it’s natural for us to talk about acting. When there are times when I really don’t know what to do before filming, I do send an SOS to my boyfriend.”
This is the first time IU has spoken publicly about her relationship with Lee Jong Suk since they announced it on January 1, 2023.
Despite the potential awkwardness of the situation, IU referred to Lee Jong Suk as her “boyfriend” and answered the questions naturally.
IU also revealed that she had invited Lee Jong Suk to the VIP preview screening of “Dream,” which will be held on April 24th.
She said, “Since the movie hasn’t been released yet, I don’t know how people will react to my acting.”
“Dream” is a movie about a former soccer player named Hong Dae (played by Park Seo Joon) and a passionless PD named So Min (played by IU), who challenges an impossible dream with a group of homeless national athletes. The film is set to be released on April 26th.
IU‘s confession has sparked a lot of interest and discussion among netizens. Here are some of their comments:
“I think it’s sweet that IU can rely on her boyfriend for help with her acting. It shows how supportive they are of each other.”
“IU is such a talented actress and singer, but it’s good to know that even she has moments of doubt and needs help sometimes.”
“It’s nice to see IU talking about her relationship with Lee Jong Suk in a natural way. They seem like a great couple.”
“I can’t wait to see ‘Dream‘! IU and Park Seo Joon are both amazing actors, and I’m sure they will do a great job.”
“I think it’s great that IU is making her feature film debut in ‘Dream.’ She’s such a versatile artist, and I’m sure she will excel in this new challenge.”
Overall, IU‘s confession has generated a lot of positive buzz and excitement for her upcoming movie.
Fans are looking forward to seeing her on the big screen and are rooting for her continued success in both music and acting.
