There were rumours of Lee Jong Suk and IU not getting along well during the time when both were MCs for “Inkigayo”
When cameras were off, they refused to talk to each other.
Surprisingly, Lee Jong Suk admitted on variety show “Incarnation” that both of them didn’t really talk to each other other than job related.
He further explained that IU often gave ideas on costumes.
Once IU wanted to have a theme of “Peter Pan”.
… And IU became Tinkerbell while Jong-suk became Peter Pan.
And even as snowmen…
He was a little annoyed by that.
He admitted that he didn’t like IU back then. But ever since Lee Jong Suk stepped down as MC, they grew fondness with each other through quarreling.
Lee Jong Suk asked IU “Why did you do such things? You knew I hate things like that”. IU told him that she just wanted to put up a good show.
They became very close friends ever since.
