She is my current favorite Korean singer, so it is only natural for me to make a thread for her, no?

I met her the first time when I watched Dream High, a musical Korean drama. I completely fell in love with her and the character she acted out, it was awesome and lovely. Then I went to check her songs. I like her singles in general, like Good Day and the latest You & I.
I've just heard today that her fans are (unofficially) called "Mellow" or "Mallow". I think it should be "Mallow", though, as it's strange calling yourself "Mellow" in this context. :P

As an actress I only know of her performance in Dream High. Does she star in any other new drama or movie lately?
Her newest album which name I forget is not that impressive compared to REAL or IU..IM unfortunately. What do you think?
Nice thread Phio! However image doesnt work for me.Yup I also got to know her from the DH.However also she is known for her magnificent covers. SHe just adds something new and unique to already a great song

Thanks for letting me know, lawlett! Picture updated.
I really like IU. I think she is currently my favorite female Korean singer. Her voice is calm but can be strong as well. And she is still very young. She can play guitar. Few days ago I saw her singing cover Super Junior's Sorry Sorry, acoustic, with her dear guitar, and it was awesome. She is so talented!
Too bad her new songs didn't impress me that much. But I still like her!

Phio-chan also have you heard this one:
Ah, yes, I've listened to them previously. I think it's quite a cool combination. IU has a great English too! So proud of her.
Well, a celebrity's love life is always interesting, no? Recently there is a scandal about IU going around because of her photo with one of SuJu's members, Eunhyuk. I'm not following that far but.. I don't know, kinda disappointed? LOLOL~ I always support her and Woo Young since watching Dream High, mwahahahahahahah~
She's done in a few covers before, one of my favourites was for a music show, where she did covers of SNSD's Gee, Big Bang's Lies and Super Junior's Sorry Sorry, so so good. It was really funny as well, because the host kept staring at her, he was just that amazed by her, I'll post up the video later, but good stuff!
cant we talk about Iu-Eunhyuk lil scandal
Look forward to your videos!
I'm really curious, has there been any sign of these two previously? My friends showed me one or two articles, seems like they indeed have something going on.
i can't say i am too supportive of this.. Not a huge fan of eunhyuk plus i was shipping ThnderIU for quite some time.Her "nations lil sister" image is destroyed now i wonder how long this relationship will last
IU is sooooo great, I love her... Her voice is very beatiful and she's so sweet <33333 haha She's a very good actress as well, I loved her as Pil Sook in DH... I must say that she was one of the few reasons that I kept watching DH (though I still have to finish watching it), I really didn't like the lead roles... and I've just realized that WooYoung is Jason in DH, dunno why I didn't realize it before, they were a lovely couple ^^
I hadn't heard about IU-Eunhyuk before, I'm so misinformed (lol), she could date WooYoung, they were such a good couple in DH
Oh, and I loved her video with YongHwa, I like both of them and the music is pretty good!
