Seoul — Korean actor Gong Yoo has shared that he wants to act alongside IU one day. The star appeared on the latest episode of IU’s YouTube show, IU’s Palette, where he said IU’s singing and acting skills are on par with each other.

Gong Yoo was personally surprised by IU’s acting in the 2018 drama My Mister, according to Allkpop.

The actor said, “This may be a long story, but I think the way you make songs and perform music is similar to the way you act. In My Mister, it was pretty shocking because you were so good at acting.”

He then compared her roles in My Mister and Hotel Del Luna, saying, “I think when you were Ji An in My Mister, you shone bright as a star. On the other hand, Jang Man Wol in Hotel Del Luna was cute and cheerful. She wasn’t as serious, but it was a bit funny.”

Gong Yoo concluded, “Even if it isn’t a music-related movie, I hope we’ll get to work together in a nice movie or drama.” IU replied, “I’d love that. I really would. I really hope that comes true.”

Born on July 10, 1979, Gong Ji-cheol, better known by his stage name Gong Yoo is a South Korean actor.
