What’s the Relationship Between them?
Lee Joon-gi and IU have both been involved in the production of the drama Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. After that, they have been rumored to be involved in a romantic relationship. Lee Joon-gi then shut the issue down by setting the record straight with an official statement from his agency, Namoo Actors. Namoo Actors assured everyone that Lee is not the reason for IU’s break-up. Namoo added, “They became quite close while working together, and it seems that’s why the rumors began, but all the cast members of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo are close. We hope there are no further misunderstandings.”
At the drama’s press conference, Lee Joon-gi has said that he was impressed by IU’s acting. He has also said that he started having a lot more trust in IU’s acting after filming had started. IU is able to make the role completely her own. He even said that he was able to lean on IU as an actress, which gave him an opportunity to focus on his character while they were working on the 2nd and 3rd episode. He is really thankful for her.
So, it is clear that Lee Joon-gi and IU are nothing more than friends.
