Recently, IU spoke with media outlets ahead of the release of her upcoming film Dream. The movie, starring IU, Park Seo Joon, and Honey Lee, tells the story of a former footballer and a passion-less producer who work to turn a rag-tag group of football players around.

On this day, IU revealed the reason why she chose to take on her role in the movie.

Four years ago, because I played so many dark characters, I was thirsty to play a character that didn’t have a sad story. I think that’s why I wanted to play Somin (character in movie). When I received the script, I read through it quickly, and I thought that the director portrayed Somin’s character well.

Also, I liked the message in the movie and agreed with it. Since this was my first movie, the biggest reason I chose the movie was that I could be with many sunbae actors. I thought I just needed to faithfully carry out my role while watching and learning from my sunbaes.

One noteworthy fact about Dream is that, according to reports, Lee Jong Suk was actually offered a role in the movie.

When asked what Lee Jong Suk thought about his girlfriend appearing in a movie that he was once offered, IU stated that she didn’t know.

I just found out (that Lee Jong Suk was offered a role) by you asking the question. There is nothing I can tell you because I haven’t heard anything (about Lee Jong Suk being offered a role).
