IU has a hard time making friends or keeping friends because of her famous celebrity status.
She revealed on JTBC’s Hyori’s Bed and Breakfast that she only has two friends from her middle school days.
“I have two friends from middle school, but I’m not comfortable enough to go traveling with them.”
Lee Hyori agreed that she wished she could have a regular close friendship like everyone else.
“I want a very drunk friend to call me at 2 in the morning, saying ‘Come pick me up’. But I can’t do that.”
— Lee Hyori
It’s difficult for them, because friends can’t see them without the veil of a superstar celebrity.
Celebrities also have to watch where they go, what they do and will always have restrictions that a normal friend wouldn’t.
Thankfully, IU was able to get close with the girls who came to stay at Lee Hyori’s house!
“I wish you guys can stay for a longer time. I have a hard time opening up to people, but you were so comfortable.”
And either way, IU and Lee Hyori will always have each other!
