    Green Grin The "IU" Thread

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

    Please welcome, Lee Ji Eun, who is more widely known under the name "IU"!



    Full Name: Lee Ji Eun
    Stage Name: IU
    Birthday: May 16, 1993
    Genre: K-pop, dance, R&B

    Further reading >> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IU_%28singer%29

    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

    Re: The "IU" Thread

    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?

    Re: The "IU" Thread

    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!

    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.

    Re: The "IU" Thread

    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~

    Re: The "IU" Thread

    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!

    IU is awesome, indeed. At first I thought she just studied guitar a bit for starring at Dream High, since I had only known her since watching the drama, but she was awesome with it since long. Definitely cool.

    Look forward to your videos!

    That's what I had just posted up there.

    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.

    Re: The "IU" Thread

    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!
