On an episode of MBC ‘Section TV Entertainment News’, which was aired on Feb 19th, Lee Seung Gi revealed that the branded bracelet he gifted IU awhile back, “might have caused Teen Top members to be disappointed”, raising questions as to why that may be so.
It was revealed on a recent variety show, that IU received an expensive bracelet from Lee Seung Gi, which became a hot topic. It

Lee Seung Gi revealed another behind story today, saying, “Initially, I was going to pay for the presents for the guest performers out of my own pocket, but the total amount stays the same. Therefore, since IU is a solo singer and by herself, she might have felt it was rather expensive, whereas the 6 Teen Top members were probably disappointed.”
