IU stuns netizens with ladylike appearance

Remember a while ago we reported that IU appeared for a Samsung galaxy event? Photos of her were uploaded onto an online community board on May 27th and had garnered lots of attention from netizens

IU stunned her fans when she stepped out as a lady for the event. She’s seen wearing a fashionable outfit that gives off a mature air, thanks to the chic jacket over a black dress. Her slender figure and gentle expressions are definitely attracting a lot of attention, and there’s no doubt that she’ll grab some high-end CFs soon.

Netizens wrote, “You’re becoming thinner and thinner. I hope you’ll rest now”, “How many schedules do you have… please take care of your health”, and “Obviously, IU is the real thing. You’re too pretty”.

'samsung & u' magazine May/June issue Interview section translated

For the photos and tweet about the interview click HERE

So beautiful =)

I've heard that in order to become a singer, you went for more than 20 auditions, but did not make it through any of them. Didn't you think of giving up halfway?

At that time, I didn't really go for auditions with the mindset, "I have to pass this audition to become a singer". I simply went because I found it fun to go for the auditions themselves, so I wasn't really sad or in despair when I didn't make it through them. I think I enjoyed going for the auditions themselves.

Not a prodigy just been putting in 100% effort

Make that 200% or 300%.

IU's first original composition, "Hold My Hand", was previously reported as receiving a lot of attention for its all-kill on the major online music charts.

The last episode on the 22nd was the first broadcasting after 3 months of practice. Without any special skills, IU took a stand and gave a simple performance. After the broadcast, there were comments that "IU had a busy schedule and was unable to practice very much".

 Don't you all think that this is a very beautiful shot?

A representative from IU's agency told Herald Biz, "IU has been eager to compose her own songs and ever since her debut, she has been studying and practising" and "under the guidance of the composer and arranger in her agency, she composed many songs by herself. There are plans to release them as albums or digital singles in future."
