Lee Dong Wook, the actor who can dive into other-worldly characters like it’s his second personality, has left viewers swooning over his acting. From portraying grim reaper in Goblin to playing nine-tailed fox in Tale of the Nine-Tailed, the actor has been aceing these non-human roles.

Fans of Lee Dong Wook can take some notes as he shared that his ideal type of partner is someone he can rely on and who will comfort him when he is having a difficult time. In the past, he has dated Suzy, a prominent Korean actress and singer. It is the only relationship he has confirmed with the public.

Ideal Type Is Someone Who Comforts Him 

The actor has mentioned that when it comes to his ideal type, rather than the person’s appearance, he prefers someone with whom he can communicate easily and has the same sense of humor as him. 

In one of the episodes of his talk show Because I Want To Talk, he revealed he seeks someone who is motherly.

He said, “I want someone I can lean on and someone I can talk to while facing a difficult time.” Lee Dong Wook further shared that he is attracted to comforting women.

Has Dated ‘The Nation’s First Love’ Bae Suzy 

Lee Dong Wook has worked with many famous and beautiful actresses, and it has brought about many rumors of girlfriends. But so far, he has only confirmed one relationship publicly. The Goblin actor revealed he was dating Bae Suzy, a prominent Korean actress and singer, in 2018.

In 2012, Suzy made appearances in Strong Heart, a talk show in which Lee was one of the hosts. She was asked about her ideal type at that time, and she mentioned Lee as her choice. It was clear that she fancied Lee, but the two wouldn’t begin dating until much later in March of 2018.

The relationship created some controversy as Lee Dong Wook was 13 years older than Bae Suzy. They broke up after just four months into the relationship. According to their agencies, the reason for their split was their busy schedules, which led them to naturally drift apart.

Undeniable On-Screen Chemistry with Co-Star Yoo In Na

Lee and Yoo In Na first starred together in the drama Goblin as each other’s love interest. They reunited once again when both of them starred in another drama, Touch Your Heart, once again as a couple.

The actress had nothing but praises for Lee as he was familiar and gave her a sense of assurance.

In an interview for tvN’s Touch Your Heart, Lee mentioned that his co-star Yoo In Na played a role in his decision to join the drama.

He said, “One of the reasons why I chose this drama is because of my comfort and trust in working with Yoo In Na.”

The actor assured us that they would be showing a different kind of chemistry in their new drama.
