Korean actor, Lee Joon-gi, mentioned IU’s acting at the press conference for K-drama, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.
Lee Joon-gi said, “I was initially worried about IU’s acting as the main character of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.”
He added, “Of course, IU has proven her acting skills in previous dramas. But, in Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, she takes the lead role, which requires a higher level of acting skill. I was exited to see her acting but at the same time, was worried because she might push herself too much.”
“But I could build up the trust as the shooting went. IU was truly getting into in her role, which made me lean on her as an actress. Thanks to her, I could solely focus on acting out my character.”
The first episode of Scarlet Heart:Ryeo is scheduled to be aired on August 29.
