Recently, a clip from Lee Jong Suk’s fan meeting in Korea is going viral after he had an unexpected interaction with an IU fan. During the fan meeting, a member of the audience was called up to play a game with the actor.

After coming up, the MC asked why he came to the event that day.

Adorably, the fan asked if they could be honest, with the MC adding, “Yes you can, Lee Jae Suk is a very honest person too.”

The fan then shyly explained, “To be honest, because of Jieun noona,” which was referring to IU by her real name.

It seemed like Lee Jong Suk didn’t hear at first and walked towards the fan to hear him properly as the crowds erupted into “Aaaws.”

Yet, it was Lee Jong Suk’s reaction that had fans excited. Although it wasn’t over the top, the actor had a smile on his face as he walked back to his side of the stage and continued to listen to what the fan had to say.

When the video was shared, it quickly gained attention from netizens online.

When the video was posted, netizens couldn’t get over the adorable reaction. Although they joked the fan was checking on the person IU was dating, others loved that they were supporting him and the fact he was dating their favorite idol.


Yet, while international fans loved the interactions, it seemed like some IU fans and Korean netizens weren’t as happy. The video was posted on Twitter, gaining so much attention, but was later deleted by the fan. International fans came to their defense, sharing that IU and Lee Jong Suk had been public with their relationship, and they were just enjoying the crumbs.

Considering how the dating news is public and they’ve mentioned each other, it’s not surprising that fans love the crumbs between the two. While some fans might not have been happy with the interaction, others loved that IU fans were supportive of his relationship with her.
