IU, “If I Don’t Text Back to Yoon Sang, He Gets Sad”

Singer IU revealed the prudent side of singer Yoon Sang.

IU came out on MBC’s “Come to Play” and said “I usually call him ‘dad’. He also sends me a lot of text messages on how I did on variety shows. However, there is one thing bad about this. He gets sad and mad at me if I don’t text him back.”

IU said “One day, I met him at a radio show and he asked me ‘why do you ignore texts from your dad?’” and got mad at me. Yoon Sang said embarrassingly, “I have this personality where everything has to be done quickly and efficiently or I get mad. So whenever a reply is late, I get nervous, mad, and sad at the same time.”
Also on the show was jazz pianist Kim Gwang Min, and guitarist Lee Byung Woo.

Note: This episode of "Come to Play" is not IU's episode. IU only appeared for a short while.

IU looks further into her acting career

IU will be looking to further her acting career.

IU recently debuted as an actress in the drama “Dream High.” She took the role of Pilsook, who transformed from obese teenager to IU with only her love for Jason. She came out as a cute and lovely character, creating nicknames such as “Pilsook-mon” “milk couple.”

Since then, other works that want IU as a cast are flowing in. Her management company said “since Dream High, scripts and scenarios continue to come in. IU has felt that acting is fun so she is looking forward to choosing one of the scenarios. She hasn’t decided yet since she was really busy with ‘Good Day’ and other songs that followed and doesn’t want to overwork herself. But if a scenario really interests her and she really wants to do it, we won’t be stopping her.”

IU is also working as an MC of “Inkigayo.”

Glad that things are going well for her. GO IU!!!! =)

Dara and IU's apple hairstyle faces off

2NE1’s Sandara Park and the solo singer IU were both recently seen with similar “apple” hairstyles, causing excitement and conflict between fans. The hairstyle is notable for its charming way of showing off one’s forehead by tying the fringe with a hair tie.

A few months ago, Sandara posted a photo of herself sporting the apple hairstyle on her me2day account. Both male and females fans left enthusiastic comments. IU’s similar appearance on the third season of the KBS2TV program “Happy Together” also caught the attention of viewers.

The cute and youthful looks of both singers has created divided opinions between fans. IU’s fans have written responses like “As expected, IU is a cute trendsetter with an apple hairstyle” and “IU’s cute charm makes even ajusshi fans fall for her.” Sandara’s fans, on the other hand, have remarked, “Sandara Park’s apple hair is the best” and “No one can beat Sandara Park’s charm with her apple hairstyle.”

Whose hairstyle do you like better?
