Couple of the year goes to actor Lee Jong Suk and singer-actress IU. As they quickly became the talk of the town after confirming their relationship from the very start of the year.
While they were known to have been acquaintances for a long while, the two seemingly began dating last year a few months after the ‘Romance is a Bonus Book’ star got discharged from his military service.
‘The Golden Hour’ concert merchandise was already a hot item, even as it was released with many, rushing to buy and the large demand from IU’s fans. However it seems as though her number one fan got his hands on the much coveted merchandise.
In a recent Instagram story update by Taeyong Ko of Beyond Closet, Lee Jong Suk was seen hanging out with his friend. The story was captioned, “Working on collection with Jjongsuk” where the actor was seen making a V sign at the camera.
However, fans with their hawk-eyes noticed another important thing as they spotted ‘The Golden Hour’ cap on Lee JongSuk. Likely to be from IU’s ‘The Golden Hour: Under The Orange Sun’ concerts in September which the actor is known to have attended, many were happy to see Lee Jong Suk lending his support to his girlfriend, even in the tiniest of ways.
Meanwhile, Ko Taeyong, a designer with the brand seems to have been aware and supportive of his friend’s relationship with IU as he was also spotted at Lee Jong Suk’s brother’s wedding where he shared a photo from the singer’s congratulatory performance.
This is the same event, that netizens later spoke about how the two were already dating then but no one suspected anything thanks to their long running friendship.
