The final special episode of JTBC's reality show 'Hyori's Homestay' is only a week away and it is an emotional time in the Lee household at the beautiful Jeju Island. IU, who has been very close to the couple for the entire duration of her stay, talked about her friend and 'Goblin' actress Yoo In-na. She also commented on the marriage of Lee Hyori and Lee Sang-soon.
As noted by website Soompi, on the September 17 broadcast of 'Hyori's Homestay,' on a car ride with Lee Hyori and her husband Lee Sang-soon, IU was asked about her current home. She said, "I live in the same apartment complex as Yoo In-na." However, she added, "We are neighbors. We both like to have alone time, so we don't live together." IU and Yoo In-na spent this past Valentine's Day together and are the best of friends.
There was another surprising revelation for Lee Hyori and Lee Sang-soon; one regarding Yoo In-na's age. When Hyori asked IU about the 'Goblin' actress's age, IU revealed she was 36-years-old. To this, Lee Hyori said, "I only know what she looks like, but she doesn't look that age." IU agreed with her fellow K-pop artist saying she does look incredibly young for her age. Lee Hyori and her husband then both asked IU to tell her friend that they are both her fans.
In the same episode, as noted by Allkpop, IU also complimented Lee Hyori and Lee Sang-soon's married life, which many find ideal. In a clip from the penultimate episode, released by JTBC Entertainment, Lee Hyori and her guitarist husband are seen laying a blanket each, on the beach, facing each other and practising various Yoga poses.
Watching them, one of the guests said, "Wow it looks like a picture (an art); they look like they're in a movie scene," while the other guest commented, "If you can have a marriage life like that, I think it would definitely be worth it." IU revealed her own thoughts on Lee Hyori and Lee Sang-soon's marriage and said, "It's like a dream. After seeing and spending time with them up close for the past two weeks, I understand what it means to meet your match (true partner)." Watch the clip below.
Meanwhile, 'Hyori's Homestay' also became the first JTBC show to send its staff on a reward vacation, Soompi notes. "The staff of 'Hyori's Homestay' will receive a reward vacation and a monetary reward as well for breaking the record for the highest viewership ratings for a JTBC variety show. This is the first time we're sending the staff of a variety show on a reward vacation," the chief producer of the show, Yoon Hyun-joon said.
