It was a big surprise that she told her fans that she is going out with Jang Ki Ha. Why is it a big surprise? IU is the top class Kpop singer and many fans would thought that she would go out a person with her age.
Especially fans all remember that she was hitting on Back Seong Chan (Kim Soo Hyun) in the drama, Producer, just a few months ago. Although they were not the real couple but they looked good on each other than Kim Soo Hyun and Gong Hyo Jin from the screen. It was because of their age gap too. IU and Kim Soo Hyun’s age gap and outlook were more realistic than Gong Hyo Jin’s.
Anyway, the reality is IU has chosen Jang Ki Ha who has 11 years older than hers and she told that she fell in love with him at a first sight about 2 years ago when they were recording a radio program. She also told that she has a lot to learn from Ki Ha and he is a great boyfriend. I think her comment is very appropriate that she might defend him from her radical fans might do some crazy things to him after releasing this news. There might be a possibility that her fans would attack him mentioning his ages if they think that he was the one who approached her first. Whether she really approached him first or not, it looks that they are in love and want to keep that way. It must have been really tough for them to hide their love. Life is short, lovers. Enjoy your moment with the loved ones!!!
