KMazing – I love the appearance of Lee Ji-eun aka IU in the colossal drama Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo. Thanks to her performance as Go Ha-jin / Hae Soo in the drama, the actress and singer who was born on May 16, 1993 received two awards, the Best Couple Award with Lee Joon-gi and Idol Academy Award, Heart-wrenching Award, both from the SBS Drama Awards 2016.
But IU is in no hurry to take on a new acting project despite her popularit. Instead, she chose to focus on her musical career by going on tour to several Asian countries to promote her latest album, Palette. Fans were impatiently waiting for her acting. And recently word got out that IU is considering a role in tvN’s latest drama titled My Man. It was justified by tvN directly quoted by various online media.
The cable TV network on Wednesday (8/11) stated that IU was offered the role of Lee Ji-ahn, a multi-year contract employee with a lot of debt. She had lived with her ailing grandmother since childhood. The story gets more exciting when Lee Ji-ahn meets an older man, played by actor Lee Sun-kyun. Both become close and sharing mutual attention to ward each other.
The staff drama My Man gave a statement, “There has been no decision whether IU will take the role or not. We’re still waiting for the respond. “
If IU did take this role, then this drama will complete the list of filmography that was started with the drama Dream High in 201q. Throughout her career in the entertainment industry, IU has balanced her acting and musical careers which is amazing.
