Lee Joon Ki and IU are just former co-workers.

Following news of IU and Jang Ki Ha's break-up, the Scarlet Heart: Ryeo actors became swept up in dating rumors. I assume their electric on-screen chemistry helped add fuel to the flames, but our pretend couple will forever stay in our dreams. The 34 year-old star set the record straight with an official statement from his agency today. Namoo Actors assured everyone that Lee is not the reason for IU's break-up. 

“It seems [Lee Joon Gi and IU] had really great chemistry in the drama. It is not true that they are dating," they explained.

Namoo added, "They became quite close while working together, and it seems that’s why the rumors began, but all the cast members of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo are close. We hope there are no further misunderstandings.”

Diehard Scarlet Heart: Ryeo fans must be incredibly disappointed by this confirmation. Even though I'm rooting for her to possibly get back together with her beau, you can't deny the sparks these actors created on-screen. It was almost impossible to separate reality from fiction at times! That was some superior acting on their part.

Are you upset that Lee Joon Ki and IU aren't a couple in real life? Were there any other princes in Scarlet Heart:Ryeo you were secretly shipping her with?
