After her agency confirmed that the singer and Jang Ki Ha are dating, IU herself reached out to her fans.
IU wrote on her fancafe website (Uaena):
“It’s been almost two years since we’ve dated. I fell for him immediately after meeting him for the first time through a radio show. He is a boyfriend whom I have a lot to learn from and I am thankful for that. We are dating like any other couple, having good times, fighting, getting disappointed, and feeling thankful.”
“I was thinking about what would be a good way to tell everyone about this but my turn was taken from me. Haha, it’s sudden, but I think I’ve got to start a public relationship. Even if we pretend not to notice, this space [referring to the fancafe] will be a little awkward for a while, right? I am sorry for making this happy, bustling, and cute space that way. I am so thankful to our Uaena who worried about me first despite that. I am thankful and sorry for all the worries, support, and disappointment.”
“Although I’ve played this out in my head thousands of times, I don’t know what to do. First, I will just keeping going about my work bravely. I hope your day is not hard today because of me, and I will come back here soon.”
IU is currently preparing for her comeback and Jang Ki Ha is prearing for a nationwide tour beginning next month.
IU sounds really happy in her post! We wish Jang Ki Ha and IU the best.
