I can't believe we missed this (did we? I'm not sure haha), but Koreaboo posted an article a couple weeks ago (yes, weeks T-T) titled "9 K-Pop Idols Who Look Way Too Beautiful in Uniforms", and of course, our always-too-beautiful IU was featured in it! Doesn't she look good too beautiful wearing anything tho?

K-Pop idols wear uniforms all the time, ranging from their performance outfits to like Girls’ Generation to the army uniform all men must wear for 2 years.

As one of those fans, I also started thinking about how different this role is for IU, which, perhaps unsurprisingly, led me to thinking about my favorite role of hers to date: Our Woman Crush Wednesday this week, Lee Soon Shin from “You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin.”

The drama itself certainly had its flaws, but, for me, it never diminished the happiness I felt at watching our leading lady grow, succeed, and...
