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.

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.
