While starring in the MBC K-Drama Big Mouth, Girls’ Generation‘s Yoona and actor Lee Jong Suk formed a close friendship that won viewers over.
So it was only natural for the two to recently win an award for Best Couple at the 2022 MBC Drama Awards. And that’s where Lee Jong Suk made an adorable mistake that proved how close the two actors are.
When mentioning Yoona in his acceptance speech, Lee Jong Suk was so flustered that he accidentally called her his wife, like his on-screen character would.
Using her flowers as cover, Yoona couldn’t help laughing at Lee Jong Suk’s mistake. Their characters’ wedding photo in the background might’ve also played a part in making the moment funnier.
Of course, fans of the actors and the K-Drama didn’t miss Lee Jong Suk’s adorable mistake and uploaded multiple clips as it went viral.

Since Yoona was his on-screen wife for Big Mouth and such a close friend, it’s understandable why Lee Jong Suk would make such a funny mistake.
