With rumors that he and IU had bad relations on SBS’ Inkigayo, Lee Jong Seok appeared on SBS’ Incarnation to explain himself.

On June 4, Lee Jong Seok was directly asked about rumors saying that he and IU’s relationship was so bad that they did not talk at all in the MC’s waiting room of Inkigayo.

Lee Jong Seok laughed, explaining that they never talked about anything personal to each other, but they still communicated.

“And there was this other thing. Inkigayo is a program watched by a young audience, so there’s a lot of costume wearing and one-dimensional lines,” said Lee Jong Seok, explaining that he didn’t necessarily like the forced cheeriness or the cheesiness of it all.

Lee Jong Seok added that IU kept pitching ideas for the MCs to wear costumes, like Peter Pan and Leon and Mathilda from Leon, The Professional.

Although he knew IU was only working hard to make their program pop, Lee Jong Seok added that he was a bit annoyed because for the most part, he was embarrassed of dressing up.

“Because she was such a lovable national sister that everyone liked her, but I was annoyed with her,” said Lee Jong Seok. “But by the time I was to leave the show, I was a bit upset, maybe because by then, I grew some affection towards her.”

When asked if he no longer talk to IU, Lee Jong Seok said they still do. They eventually talked out all of their complaints about each other and became close friends.
