Dispatch reported that IU and Jong-suk had been together for four months before the statements were made. They claim that the actor and singer met 10 years ago on the set of Inkigayo’s music show. Their friendship grew into love over time.

Dispatch also quoted sources close to the couple who told the site that both their families have been made aware of their relationship. IU sang a celebratory song earlier this year at Jong-suk’s younger brother’s wedding.
