Lee Jong Suk has recently made headlines for sporting a hat from his girlfriend IU’s merchandise.
On April 16th, a post titled “Lee Jong Suk Using IU’s Collectibles to the Fullest” was shared on various online communities.
The post included a photo of Lee Jong Suk donning a cap from IU’s merchandise. The hat in question was sold at IU’s solo concert The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun last year and is currently out of stock. Interestingly, IU was previously seen wearing the same hat on her YouTube channel.
Lee Jong Suk was recently spotted using another IU merchandise – a bunny phone grip – which was released by her agency, EDAM Entertainment, to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit in 2023.
The phone grips were only available for a limited time in January. Netizens who noticed Jong Suk using IU’s merchandise expressed their support for their rumored relationship, commenting that “he’s cute” and “he’s showing his romantic side.”
Some even compared him to IU’s fandom for his dedication to collecting her goods. Others said that seeing him use IU’s merchandise in his everyday life shows how much he cares for her.
