The concept of the shoot is a beautiful summer vacation, and so the two stars are wearing subdued yet colorful outfits and sporting fashionable but practical accessories.
The two are now official models for UNIONBAY and appeared in the brand’s spring photo shoot together earlier this year.
They have also worked together before when they hosted SBS‘s “Inkigayo” together, and when Lee Hyun Woo appeared in IU’s music video for “You and I” back in 2011. The two are close friends, and were even rumored to be dating last year, although both sides denied the rumors.
According to a source on set, “IU and Lee Hyun Woo escaped from the city for the shoot. They felt free and comfortable while they were modelling, and so it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that it really looks like they’re on vacation.”
IU also posted some photos from the shoot on her Instagram. One features Lee Hyun Woo in a hammock looking up at the camera in alarm, with the caption “Did you come here to rest?”
The next shows Lee Hyun Woo wrapped in a blanket overlooking IU from a balcony. “Are you cold?” IU asks in the caption. It seems that although the two were wearing clothing fit for summer for the photos, it was still pretty chilly that day!
She also released a photo of the two of them with the caption “It’s done! Great job!” and included the hashtag “#killersmile.”
Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of this adorable couple in next season’s UNIONBAY ads!
