IU was introduced as a highly popular "national young beauty" on a Japanese broadcast programme.

On the 23rd of March, during a Japanese broadcast, IU was introduced as a solo singer who debuted during high school and has found success as a solo singer in a music industry full of idols, receiving high popularity for her cute style and bright songs, as well as frequently appearing on variety shows.

Upon receiving such a high popularity status that there's no one in Korea who doesn't know her, the nation's young beauty has been compared with other Japanese young beauties and stars. The MCs exclaimed, "She's cute!", upon seeing pictures of IU.

There is a great possibility of IU making it big in the Japanese market since the Japanese masses have a preference for stars with cute yet friendly appearances. Also, the female diva achieved success with her singing ability, thus differentiating herself from other idols. In fact, since earlier on this year, when Japan's entertainment production and record companies were directly refused, apparently successive inquiries were made about her entering the Japanese market.

In particular, the recent drama that IU acted in, "Dream High", was broadcasted in Japan since 27th January, through satellite television on SKY PerfecTV!'s DATV channel. This seems to have increased the public's attention towards IU.

Meanwhile, presently within Korea, IU released "The Story Only I Didn't Know" as a follow-up to "Good Day", and upon completing promotions for this album, she is currently appearing on SBS "Inkigayo" as an MC.
