SK T-Store CF

It's out!! It's out!!!

The two sang a duet of Jo Young Nam’s own hit track, “Perianth Marketplace“, as the advertisement’s main theme song, only there was a slight change in the lyrics:  “Come and check it out~ The place where customers come~ Application marketplace~ There is nothing that you can’t find~ T-Store.”
The CF was also created in celebration of the T-Store hitting 170 million in downloads.

In order to express the diversity of their T-Store, IU and Jo Young Nam made various transformations into DJs, reggae singers, Chinese restaurant chefs, beautiful ladies, and 20 other roles.

IU even used her famous ‘three high notes’ in the song, showing off her impressive vocals once more under the support and direction of senior Jo Young Nam.

IU VS Kate Hudson

Korea’s singing sensation IU and Hollywood star Kate Hudson have been compared because they wore the same floral dress made by the famous New York designer Marc Jacobs for his 2011 Resort Collection on a different time and place.

IU wore the said dress during the MBC‘s Gayo Daejun while Kate Hudson used it for the November issue of U.S’ ELLE magazine where in she was the cover.

For fast facts about the dress, the price for the dress is 5.53 million won or equivalent to almost 5,000 U.S. dollars. It is a one piece dress with two colors, ivory from the shoulders down to the waist and a pink skirt. The design is mainly composed of flower petals that is connected one by one.

So who do you all think wore better? IU of course lol!

Daum yozm interview (warning long post)

IU, the idol who stole the hearts of fans and received a flood of popularity with her appearance and performances of "Good Day", "The Story Only I Didn't Know" and "Cruel Fairytale". This new face and talent that appeared as an actress in a recent drama is showing up through various activities.

During the time we spent with her, seeing the image of IU telling us her plans calmly and steadily, she doesn't give us the feeling of a young 18 year old girl but of 'singer IU' instead.

Looking forward even more to her future activities, let's go straight into IU's interview!

Interview with Shin Dong Ah

IU's fansite traded for Shin Bong Sun's for April Fool

Dang! I really wanted to do that too! Why must I be bogged down with work =(

IU has recently been ‘terrorized’ as part of an April Fool’s joke.

On April 1st, IU fans got the shock of their lives after they saw that IU’s picture was swapped for Shin Bong Sun’s on one of the IU fansites.

It was reported that a fan played the joke because they are frequently compared to one another.

Netizens commented, “IU has experienced the April Fool’s terror”, “Because of IU, Shin Bong Sun got herself a fan page”, and “This is IU terror. Replace the picture!“.

Other fan pages experienced similar changes, which provided big laughs for many netizens. (but not ours...sorry *sad* )

"IU was my student at acting school.. I was surprised when she debuted as a singer" , Go Yoon Hoo

Another celebrity full of praises for IU! =)

For a long period of time, Go Yoon Hoo (Running, Queen Seon Deok, East of Eden) was acting and doing a part-time job at the same time. In the midst of that, he was also a teacher at a private acting school. Upon graduating from university in 2007, he taught his juniors at the acting school and among his students, some are now celebrities who are thriving in the entertainment industry. An example would be today's trend, IU.

IU looks cute wearing Cho Youngnam's Black horn-rimmed glasses

Posted Image

IU was seen wearing Cho Youngnam’s signature black horn-rimmed glasses.

MBC ‘Section TV Entertainment Report’, airing on the 27th, met with IU and Cho Youngnam on the set of their latest CF shoot.

For this recording, IU sang while playing the guitar. What stood out was that she was wearing the same black horn-rimmed glasses as Cho Youngnam. However, far from looking dull, she made them look fresh and lively.

Meanwhile, Cho Youngnam shocked many by dressing in drag. To this he responded, “Even to me, it’s quite shocking.” Having enjoyed working with IU, they promised to share a stage sometime in the future.
