IU and Lee Joon Gi are not dating. The two had starred together in the drama, Scarlet Heart: Goryeo.
Joon Gi's agency Namoo Actors has rubbished the relationship reports. The label said: "It seems [Lee Joon Gi and IU] had really great chemistry in the drama. It is not true that they are dating. They became quite close while working together, and it seems that's why the rumors began, but all the cast members of Scarlet Heart: Goryeo are close. We hope there are no further misunderstandings."
This comes after it was revealed that IU and Kiha Chang have officially split. The two ended their relationship after dating for four years.
Chang's agency confirmed that they are no longer in a relationship. The label stated: "The two recently broke up and have decided to remain in a good senior-junior relationship."
The two met for the first time in 2013, and started seeing each other shortly. Their relationship came out in 2015, and raised concern as the couple had an 11-year age gap.
IU had gushed about Chang when the Korean media outlet Dispatch published photos of the couple together. She said at that time: "You must be shocked but thank you all for asking if I am okay."
"I was thinking of a good way to tell my fans about my relationship, but Dispatch caught the ball before it bounced. I fell for him immediately after meeting him for the first time through a radio show. He is a boyfriend whom I have a lot to learn from and I am thankful for that. We are dating like any other couple, having good times, fighting, getting disappointed, and feeling thankful," she added.
