Netizens often accuse idols of copying others when it comes to style and fashion. However, netizens recently accused solo singer IU of copying something a little harder to imitate.

According to a netizen on Instiz, IU’s smile is so similar to former f(x) member Sulli‘s smile that a post was created to show how similar the two look. The post compared several gifs and images of IU and Sulli, concluding that the two singers both share a unique open-mouth, teeth-baring smile. However, because the two are very close friends, having a similar smile doesn’t necessarily mean IU is conscious copying...

It’s the Battle of the Burberry Coats!

Two coats, five people. Who wore it best?

Let’s start with the Burberry Brit down-filled coat ($1,395 USD), which comes with a detachable hood with removable fox-fur trim.

IU wore the coat in black last week in Tokyo. The singer posed for a Marie Claire photoshoot and accessorized (naturally) with a Burberry scarf and bag. Black ankle peeptoe boots finished her casual look.

One netizen uploaded a post on an online community portal explaining what s/he considers to be problematic with IU's album concept, which apparently revolves around a 'lolita' theme.

IU herself had explained the concept behind "Zeze," the song on her new album which drew criticism from listeners, "'My Sweet Orange Tree's Zeze is a character with flaws. In a certain light, he is described as an 'angelic child' and a 'child with a shining heart,' but in...

The bassist posted on November 2 a picture of IU's new album, 'CHAT-SHIRE,' and wrote, "Kiha gave me this saying, 'It's a present.' When I saw this, I felt against my better judgment that it was worthwhile to do music."

While we’re all excited (or not) that IU and Jang Ki Ha are dating, an interesting bit of what IU and actress Min Hyo Rin said in the past has been dug up by Korean netizens.

Any IU fan knows that IU has named BIGBANG‘s Taeyang as her ideal type for a boyfriend for years. But as we all know, Taeyang is currently dating the actress Min Hyo Rin.

Interestingly enough, it turns out that Min Hyo Rin named Jang Ki Ha as her favorite celebrity in the past, as well. There is a Korean saying that says, “Life is so complicated that it’s hard to look even three centimeters ahead.” In this case, the Koreans seem to have been absolutely correct!

Sometimes idols look the most gorgeous when they’re plain faced or wearing little to no makeup. While the rumors are often that idols look awful without makeup, I think we can all agree that these artists look gorgeous!!

IU looks just the same when she’s wearing makeup and without.. it’s no reason she’s known for her beauty <3.
In the latest trailer for tvN’s upcoming drama “Hotel del Luna,” Yeo Jin Goo dishes on IU and all the ways they clash, but also why he’s intrigued by her.

Korean and international netizens have labelled IU a pedophilia-obsessed sociopath after reading the lyrics to “Zeze” and a quasi-analysis of the lolita concept on Pann by a supposed photographer.

No, seriously, that’s basically what is happening.

Etc.

I’ve honestly not been much of a fan of IU’s cutesy, quasi-ballad concepts in the past, so I certainly don’t have much of a vested interest in defending her almost daily for no reason, but I find some of the stuff put out there about her so odd to me.

Here are the lyrics to her song, “Zeze”.
