Many good things

Once again I am stuck with lots of good stuff but too little to post as a full post. Hence decide to lump it together.

1) First up! A video from ETN

More below!

Lee Ji Soo Praises IU!

Lee Ji Soo is the music director for “Leafie, A Hen into the Wild” movie OST, which IU participated in (although for some reason, someone else’s version was recorded for the OST album).

In a recent interview with Osen, Lee Ji Soo expressed, “I was wondering to myself who I could entrust this task to and the people around me recommended IU, so it was thus decided. The tone of her voice seemed to go well with the animation. She managed to sing it well after just a few attempts, so I thought to myself that she picks things up really quickly.”

IU and Luna to perform on Inkigayo!

Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. But Hurray!

Friends are people that support each other in times of hardship, spend time with each other for fun, and are like each other's family. Idol stars' busy schedules prevent many of them from developing a normal life as they would following a typical route of regular school attendance and continuing their education. It is in schools that many young people make most of their friends, for that is an area that people frequent often and therefore socialize the most. Idols, trained and constantly shuttled to and fro to accommodate their busy schedules, often do not attend school, or if they do attend school, are often absent for extensive periods.

Woo Young talks about IU

Woo-U/ Milky fans brace yourself...It's a cruel world =(

On June 21st, the members of 2PM sat down for an interview, and had a chance to talk about girls.

Wooyoung, who had participated in the drama ‘Dream High‘ with IU, said with a sigh, “After people found out that I had taken IU out for dinner, things became uncomfortable between us. When I sent her a text saying, “Do you hate me”, she replied back with, “We’re fine now”, but didn’t text me again after that. When we see each other at a broadcasting station, she’ll just give me a quick smile and run away.

He added, “We’re just friends but I think I’m maybe trying too hard to become better friends with her.

Fwighting IU!!!!! You will be there till the last episode!

A bunch of new videos!

Found a bunch of new videos recently and hence decided to lump it together! Actually they belonged to old posts and I am supposed to update it...but I got lazy *bleahz*

Kiss and Cry Ep 5 Undisclosed cut

Ice Flower has blossomed!

Sorry for the kick ass title but here you go!

According to some representatives, “It normally takes over two hours to record a song, but they managed to finish it in an hour, which surprised all of the staff members.”

Also, profits from the digital single will go towards the development of better training environments for figure skaters. Figure skaters in Korea do not yet have their own exclusive ice-rink and must share with ice hockey players. In an effort to aid the figure skaters that must move ice-rinks late at night after hours, the two have decided to donate their profits towards the cause.

So, support the cause by  purchasing the music!

BTW love the duet =)

IU and Brown Eyed Girls' member Ga-In were seen wearing the same cardigan.

The outfit they chose was a mint colored cardigan that gave off a lively spring feel. 

IU recently wore the cardigan on KBS 2TV 'Immortal Song 2'. She completed the look by wearing a matching comfortable black & white tshirt with the mint colored cardigan and had a casual & light look.

Ga-In on the otherhand wore the cardigan on MBC's daily sitcom, 'All My Love'. She showed off a more feminine look by wearing a sleevelesss floral-patterened V-neck with the cardigan.

Comparing the two pictures side-by-side, netizens commented, "Although the styles are different, they are both very pretty" and "IU looks girly whereas Ga-In gave off a more mature look."

So who do you think wore it better?
