On April 11th, 2PM's Wooyoung guested on SBS's "Night by Night" and shared some stories about himself and his "Dream High" co-star, IU. Wooyoung began, "At the time of 'Dream High', I worked really hard to get closer with IU. People said that she was shy, so before the drama began, I asked Seulong, who's close with IU, to send a text message to her for me. However, IU sent a text back to Seulong saying, 'I probably won't get close with Wooyoung even until the last episode.' I was really hurt at the time." Afterwards, the two eventually met away from the film set in order to get closer. Wooyoung revealed, "For our first meal, we sat at separate tables and just concentrated on eating because we weren't that close at the time. For our second meal, we went to eat rib eye, which as you know, is very expensive. I suggested that we go eat something else like samgyupsal, but IU insisted on buying." Unfortunately, including the staff members, the total bill came out to $600 USD. "IU told me, 'If oppa pays for this while I go to the bathroom, you'll be an amazing person to me.' I felt that I had finally gotten close with her, and maybe this was my chance to be that 'amazing person.' I was a bit worried, though, because it was so expensive." While IU went to the bathroom, Wooyoung continued, "My manager poked me and said that this was too much for her to foot, and for us to just pay for her. I said no, let's just let her pay. I said, 'Hyung, you should respect the person's decision if they want to pay!' Eventually, we ended up splitting the bill between the agency and me, which IU had no idea about. IU later told me that she was actually joking about that statement and that she hadn't meant it. Wooyoung concluded, "I later received 10 texts from IU after that, all of which said, 'Unfair, unfair, unfair, unfair, unfair! I was going to pay the bill!'" With a laugh, he added, "I felt like I had been played! But through that, we became a lot closer and were able to conclude the drama on a friendly note."

It was a mistake to delete the first article instead of simply updating it. Again, do not blame the first writer for a mistranslation or allkpop for a mistranslation, as that is patently false. Thank you and sorry for the confusion.
