PostSubject: IU clears up rumors that she’s ‘arrogant and rude’   Tue Apr 05, 2011 2:55 am

IU clears up rumors that she’s ‘arrogant and rude’



IU recently clarified some rumors surrounding herself.

The idol appeared on SBS’s “Night After Night” on April 4th, and explained the rumor that she was ‘arrogant even at a young age’.

“When I sing, my voice is thin and high but my normal voice is deep and low. So people think I talk to them as if I’m mad. I have been asked before if I have been looking down on them,” she said.

She continued to clarify, “I’m very shy and I was chubby after I debuted, so no one knew I was a celebrity. Even a security guard at a broadcasting station tried to force me out. There were many seniors who wouldn’t receive my greeting, so I used to bow to them and run away.”

Singer Kan Mi Youn revealed that she was one of the seniors who thought IU was arrogant and rude. She jokingly confessed, “A few years ago, I saw IU for the first time. She just bowed her head and went away. Newbies normally bow 90 degrees, and I wouldn’t have forgiven her if she couldn’t even sing well.”

IU’s 1Q Digital Sales Revenue Highest in Korea



IU recorded the highest digital sales revenue in Korea over the last three months, local media reported Wednesday citing a sales revenue report by SK Telecom’s Music License Bank, one of Korea’s largest online music distributors. According to the report, IU’s mini album “Real” and repackaged album “Real Plus” generated over 60 million won (5.5 million USD) in sales revenue in the first quarter of this year, which is the highest among all Korean singers. IU’s digital sales revenue beat out other popular idol groups such as TVXQ and Big Bang during the same period, reflecting her explosive popularity in Korea. IU topped various Korean music charts in the first quarter with her consecutive hit singles, “Good Day” and “The Story Only I Didn’t Know.” Her other singles “This is Awkward” and “Someday” from the KBS drama “Dream High” OST also were massive hits in that period, earning her the nickname “Trendy IU.” IU currently serves as the main MC of SBS “Inkigayo.”

PostSubject: IU “I Had an Inferiority Complex about My Look”   Fri Apr 08, 2011 1:12 am

IU “I Had an Inferiority Complex about My Look”




IU surprised many, revealing that she had an inferiority complex about her look.

IU, appearing on “Goldfish – Radio star” aired on the 6th, played the guitar and sang “Video Killed the Radio Star” a song by the Buggles.

IU explained that “this is the song that I sang as Pil-Suk in Dream High, the soap opera I recently appeared in. In the play, Pil-Suk sings well but could not really dream about becoming a singer because of her inferiority complex about her look. This is the song she sang as she was on her diet.”

She continued, “as I sang this song, I thought that I would rather remain as a radio star even though that might mean I will be less popular.”

When MC Kim Gu Ra asked whether she had negatively thought of her appearance, she revealed that “to be honest, I felt inferior while I went about auditioning.”

On the other hand, the singer Lee Jung and Park Wan Gyu also appeared on ‘Radio Star’ while on ‘Murupak Dosa’, Kim Tae Won from the band ‘Bu-Hwal’ told his life stories full of ups and downs, continuing from last week.

IU and Park Shin Yang to appear as guests on 'Sweet Hometown Trip'



On April 18th, SBS variety programme ‘Sweet Hometown Trip’ revealed its filming studio during recording.

This show challenges top stars to send gifts to back to their good friends or important people from their hometown or alma mater. In order for guests participating in the show to meet up with their friends, instead of having them make visits personally, using state-of-the art technology and a large LED screen, they can carry out conversations in real time between Seoul and their hometown.

IU received the chance to meet her juniors at her alma mater, Gwangjin Middle School, as well as her friend and elder cousin who sought to meet up with her live. Her elder cousin also expressed their grandmother’s wish to receive a television as a present, which drew laughter from everyone.

The show is scheduled to begin its first broadcast on April 22nd, featuring not the guests from this recording, but pre-recorded footage of TVXQ Yunho and Lee Young Ah who made guest appearances earlier on.

Details unrelated to IU were left out of this translation.

“I Am A Singer” producer is considering IU & Yang Hee Eun



The new head of MBC’s “I Am A Singer”, producer Shin Jung Soo, has listed the names of singers he is trying to recruit to the show.

“I’ve contacted IU and Yang Hee Eun,” said producer Shin at the show’s press conference which was held on the 29th at the MBC studio in Seoul.

‘I Am a Singer’ does not have a policy on who can appear on the show. “I don’t count out idols,” said Shin.

However, he also added that he will not bother someone who disagrees with the survival aspect of the show. “I don’t see the need to force a singer who disagrees with the survival notion,” said Producer Shin. He added, “We ask them if they agree with our system at the interview.”

He also mentioned, “No singer on the show is perfect and anyone can appear as long as he/she agrees with the survival aspect.”

In addition to IU and Yang Hee Eun, Shin is also currently recruiting an indie band. “I can’t say who. For every ten people we contact, six of them show interest but four say the show doesn’t meet their professional goal.”

‘I’m a Singer’ currently features the original singers, Lee So Ra, Park Jung Hyun, Kim Bum Soo and Yoon Do Hyun, and the new contestants, Kim Yeon Woo, Im Jae Bum and BMK. The new episode airs on May 1st.

PostSubject: KBS 'At Your Command', IU appears on show without makeup and jumps rope with Lee Soo Geun   Sat Apr 30, 2011 11:48 pm

KBS 'At Your Command', IU appears on show without makeup and jumps rope with Lee Soo Geun







On the KBS 2TV show 'At Your Command', a startled IU jumped rope as a couple with Lee Soo Geun and appeared on the show without any makeup on.

Singer IU showed great professional spirit when she had to make a sudden appearance on the show which was broadcasted on April 30th. During the recent recording of the show, Lee Soo Geun received the mission to "jump rope as a couple for 10 times with an entertainer of the opposite gender". While looking for his heroine, he discovered IU who happened to be at the broadcasting station for a radio recording without any makeup on and hastily casted her into the show.

Looking around the KBS Radio Open Studio and seeing that IU was just in time to appear as a guest, Lee Soo Geun stealthily carried out his attack. IU who was 100% free of makeup and wearing spectacles was completely caught off guard by the attack.

However, she casted aside the fact that she had no makeup on and showcased great teamwork with Lee Soo Geun to complete the mission successfully, creating a cordial atmosphere.

Meanwhile, viewers commented, "IU looks really pretty", "Other idols would probably escape from the situation. If I had no makeup on, I would be running away", "Lee Soo Geun caught a big fish keke", "Even without makeup she is of goddess status. IU is the best", and other warm responses, not hesitating to compliment IU for her behaviour.

PostSubject: IU gives strength to Suwon FC to help put an end to their consecutive defeats   Sun May 01, 2011 9:24 am

IU gives strength to Suwon FC to help put an end to their consecutive defeats


Suwon Samsung Football Club, which has suffered two consecutive losses, has enlisted the help of IU to give their team strength.

On May 7th, IU will be performing during the Hyundai Oilbank 2011 K-League 9th round match held at the Suwon World Cup Stadium, between Suwon Samsung Bluewings and Chunnam Dragons.

On this day, IU will be wearing Suwon's sapphire blue uniform. During the half-time performance, she will be making an appearance with these sapphire blue "wings" (representing the Samsung Bluewings team) and singing her widely popular songs, 'Good Day' and 'Marshmallow'.

To build rapport with the Suwon FC fans, she will also be leading them in singing the Beatles' song "Yellow Submarine" to wish for their team's victory. Last year, Suwon FC also invited Uee, Kim Yuna, Han Hyo Joo, Han Ga In, Kara, and other female sports stars and entertainers to get closer to their fans.

Among them, girl group Kara performed twice and brought good luck for the Suwon team to help them emerge victorious. Kara was hereafter dubbed as 'goddesses of victory'. This year, Suwon is silently wishing that IU will become their 'goddess of victory'.

Last month, on April 24th, during a video interview played during their match against Gyeongnam FC, IU motivated the team with the message, "Bluewings oppas way to go! If '3-level high note' IU comes, you should have no problems getting 3 goals right? Aja aja aja!! Goal! Goal! Goal! Bluewings fighting!"

On the latest episode of SBS’s “Heroes”, singer IU was absolutely ecstatic when she found out her ideal man, Big Bang’s Taeyang, had chosen her as his favorite “Heroes” member.

In the popularity survey, for which 100 male idol stars took part in, each participant were required to write down their three favorite “Heroes” member in ranking.

PostSubject: IU increases Mexicana sales, up more than 30% from last year   Mon May 02, 2011 4:13 am

IU increases Mexicana sales, up more than 30% from last year



The power of idol groups is sweeping across the franchise fried chicken industry. For the chicken brand market, it’s difficult to find anyone as appealing as an ‘idol’ to teenage or family consumers.

With all the top brands, such as Mexicana, Goobne, MasDay Chicken, BBQ, BHC and HotSun Chicken employing idols as their company sponsors, the fierce battle within the chicken industry has begun.

Mexicana chose IU as their 2011 model, using such fierce marketing tactics such as diaries and bromides. IU is an idol who is loved by the entire generation. Not only through singing but acting as well, her strong point lies in her friendly image as the ‘Nation’s Little Sister.’ A PR representative stated “Last month’s sales are up 30% from the same period as the previous year, meaning the ‘IU Effect’ is clearly visible.”

PostSubject: IU and Shin Bong Sun revealed as guests on 'Running Man' through twitter spoilers    Tue May 03, 2011 1:51 am

IU and Shin Bong Sun revealed as guests on 'Running Man' through twitter spoilers



Singer IU and gagwoman Shin Bong Sun participated as guests in the recording of SBS 'Running Man'.

On May 2nd, according to sources from 'Running Man', IU and Shin Bong Sun were involved in the filming session at Daegu Stadium since morning.

The filming concept follows a format which is that members on the show have to search for hidden guests amidst the crowds, while members of the production crew are careful to hide the identity of the guests.

However, the residents who witnessed the filming tweeted, "Today's 'Running Man' guests are IU and Shin Bong Sun'", resulting in the identities of the guests being exposed.

In the show 'Heroes', which ended on May 1st, IU and Shin Bong Sun showed great teamwork and drew much attention for their similarity in physical attributes, thus their appearance on 'Running Man' is highly anticipated. Hopefully, being able to watch them on this show after 'Heroes' will appease frustrated fans.

IU is practicing hard whenever she can find spare time between her schedules



'The nation's little sister' IU is hooked on figure skating practice.

A spokesperson from IU's agency met with reporters on the 4th and expressed, "IU can't set aside specific times to practice, but whenever she can find spare time between her schedules, she is really practicing hard."

On May 3rd, IU, together with other celebrities, had their first profile shoot for the SBS Program, "Kim Yuna's Kiss and Cry". Currently undergoing intensive training in ice skating, they are now able to put on their skates and adopt natural poses and give mature impressions. In particular, on this day, IU put on her skates and adopted a relaxed pose while balancing on one foot.

The production crew also revealed, "Initially, IU absolutely could not ice skate, but now her skill has improved so much that she can even balance on one foot." They also added, "She herself is putting in a considerable amount of effort and making quick progress as a result."

It was previously revealed that Kim Yuna, being a fan of IU, also recommended her for the show. According to the PD of the program, Kim Yuna enjoys listening to and singing IU's songs. On an episode of the SBS program 'Kim Jung Eun's Chocolate' broadcasted last year, when Kim Yuna appeared on the show, she sang IU's "Riding on a Train" and considers herself to be an 'IU fan'.

During the shoot on May 3rd, Kim Yuna and IU met for the first time as mentor and mentee. On this day, one of the studios at the Ilsan SBS Production Centre was remodeled into a skating rink to record interviews with the members on the show. It is also rumoured that Kim Yuna showcased her vocal skills by singing IU's "Riding on a Train" again during their first meeting, which lightened the mood during filming. The production crew stated, "Although it was their first meeting, it felt like they had known each other for a long time. There was no awkwardness at all as and filming went smoothly" and "Kim Yuna was quite satisfied with what she saw of the skills everyone had mastered so far."

The singer revealed that she online chats often with her fans, and shared, “During a chat, one fan shocked me when he asked, ‘Noona, how much was the piece of the straw mat you wore yesterday ?’ I was shocked and told my fans that I will show them what a real celebrity is.

She continued, “I was going back to Korea from Japan the next day so I went shopping. I was intimidated by the number of fans at the airport, but walked confidently.”

Juniel who has been dubbed as the “2nd IU” insisted during her interview that she was “not worthy enough to even be compared with IU“.

However, she did reveal her somewhat close relationship with IU. Juniel stated, “During my days as a trainee I personally met IU three times. A close older colleague of mine from elementary school was in the same entertainment as IU at that time. One day when I had free time and decided to meet up with that colleague, she had told me there was a “dongseng” she wanted to introduce me to. That person was IU.”

She continued with, “The first time we met we went to go see a musical together. The second time we met, we went to a karaoke room and had a blast. We also went to a café afterwards and talked for a really long time. Because we are both the same age, IU and I were able to speak comfortably and easily relate to one another pretty quickly.”

When Juniel was asked the question, “Do you two still hang out?” she shook her head and stated, “After we met about three times, I got rid of my phone to concentrate on training and rehearsing. That is when we stopped contacting each other and soon afterwards she had made her debut under the name IU. I’m not even sure if she remembers me. I haven’t had the chance to see her yet. ”

As for her title as the “2nd IU” Juniel stated, “I am extremely thankful of this title. However, I want to become a singer known for my own musical color and want to write legendary music. It has been four years since IU’s debut, but it has only been a week for me. I feel like I have received such a title because I have not had enough time to show everyone the kind of artist that I am. As time goes by and I have am more able to show everyone my own style of music, I believe that title will disappear. My goal is to showcase my own unique colors and become the best singer-song writer.”

Juniel, who was already widely known in Japan, made her debut in Korea on June 7th with her title song “Illa Illa“.
