On February 19, a topic titled “IU and Lee Hyori have cut contact?” was published on the Korean forum Pann Nate, drawing about 200,000 views and hundreds of comments.

In addition, IU and Lee Hyori don’t follow each other on Instagram, despite IU being known to follow all the people close to her, even staff members. 

IU is making a comeback, yet she did not appear on “Lee Hyori’s Red Carpet” for promotion, the author also added, raising speculation about IU and Lee Hyori’s friendship having soured over time. 


Upon seeing this topic, Korean netizens are showing their agreement, with some even analyzing the two’s personality to explain why they don’t click enough to be long-term friends. 

Below are some comments from netizens: 

  • Anyone can see that IU is the type of person who thinks a lot before she speaks, while Lee Hyori just says things directly without thinking, so of course they didn’t click. All in all, they are just colleagues, nothing more. After all, there’s no law requiring celebrities to be close after filming together. Just think about it, are you close with your colleagues or are you cursing at them in your head?
  • Such a childish way of thinking… Just because they don’t contact in public, it doesn’t mean they are no longer friends 
  • One glance and anyone can tell that IU and Hyori are not a good match. They also have a large age gap 
  • Are IU and Lee Hyori elementary school students? Cutting Contact? More like they are both busy people. Even if they are close, they are not required to show it 
  • Lee Hyori doesn’t follow anyone, while IU follows everyone, from the employees at the beauty salon to Park Myung-soo and MC Dingdong… The fact that she doesn’t follow Lee Hyori speaks louder than words.
