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.

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

And it seemed that she has a proper sense of value, while she talked in a clever way. Well, by the way, here's the one who knows about IU's real personality much better than me. It's famous kpop lyric writer Kim Eana.

Producer premieres on May 8 exclusively on DramaFever. Even though nothing has been confirmed, true K-drama fans know there will probably be a love triangle between Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin and IU's characters. Gong Hyo Jin will likely win because IU has the mean girl role.

Despite what happens on-screen, I have compiled some pretty convincing reasons why the former Dream High co-stars should get together in this romantic comedy.

1. When they sing together, it sounds heavenly!

I know I can't be the only one who replayed their Dream High duet "Can't I Love You?" numerous times. It easily surpassed...

Once I saw the title of this article, I knew IU would be featured! allkpop posted "10 Female Idols Who Can Rock Beanies", and included IU, calling her "adorable" and posting THREE different pictures of her in 3 different beanies! Gotta love em!

IU puts the "A" in "Adorable." We already know she has a baby-face, but with a beanie, she goes back in time and returns as her 15-year-old self. Her taste in beanies is just as adorable, ranging from the monster-ear beanie (far right) to the beanie with a huge fluff ball placed on top.
