|"Uncle? I didn't see you get hit with the tongue."|
|— Zuko calling out Iroh for laying with June.|
This ship entirely stems from the episode Bato of the Water Tribe. June ended up appearing again but was never seen interacting with Iroh again. Zuko was immediately pissed at June for damaging his ship but Iroh held no grudge and tried to apologize on Zuko's behalf when he was (understandably) rude. When she refused to work for Zuko for free in order to compensate for the damage to his ship, Iroh readily offered a lot of gold in exchange for her services. Then there was that infamous when Iroh pretended to be hit by Nyla's tongue so that he could lay with June and shushed Zuko when he tried to point this out.
I do kind of ship Junroh but I also see the squick that comes from their age difference. We don't know how old June is but I'm pretty sure that she's an adult and is probably at least in her 20's. Still, she didn't really seem to be interested in him. Iroh kind of was a flirt as he was also seen flirting with a ticket master in book 2. It can be assumed that his wife (Lu Ten's mother) is out of of the picture. However, a lot of people like to pair Iroh with older women such as Lo or Li and I kind of agree with that. I just don't see June liking Iroh.
- Iroh definitely showed interest in June.
- June did not show any interest in Iroh.
- While Iroh was mostly kind to June, he did take advantage of her being paralyzed in order to lay with her. Granted, that's all he did.
