Infinite’s L recently spoke about the relationship scandal he was involved in last year.
On February 24, L attended the press conference for MBC’s new miniseries “Cunning Single Lady,” and at the round interviews held following the press conference, he talked about the old relationship scandal.
Last September, L was involved in a relationship scandal after being captured on camera shopping for groceries with Kim Do Yeon, the ‘chocolate girl’ who became famous through tvN’s “Martian Virus.” At the time, L’s agency Woollim denied that the two were dating. However, in November of last year, Kim Do Yeon confirmed that the relationship scandal two months prior from September was true, and declared that she would take action against the netizens who were continuously posting malicious comments, throwing the incident back into the spotlight. Her agency revealed that the relationship scandal confirmation was for her protection, after which L’s agency also acknowledged the past relationship, saying that at the time of the scandal in September, the two had been meeting for about 4 months, and that while L had wanted to come out about the relationship, his agency didn’t allow him to do so for protection reasons.
When L was asked about the scandal at the interview, he said, “Through the new drama, I will be creating a much more happy and cheerful image. Because it [the relationship scandal] is a thing of the past, I believe that I just need to work on and show a better and more improved me. If you watch this new drama, you will definitely be able to see that I’m different from before,” adding that he would do his best.
In the drama, L plays the secretary of Cha Jung Woo (played by Joo Sang Wook). L said, “I will be acting as the 23-year-old Kim Myung Soo, not Infinite’s L,” expressing a desire to be seen as a genuine actor, not an idol in the drama.
“Cunning Single Lady,” starring Lee Min Jung and Joo Sang Wook, is a romantic comedy about a woman who, seeing that her ex-husband is now a successful businessman, tries to win him over once again. It will air its first two episodes back-to-back after the end of “Miss Korea” on February 27.
