The band's vocalist Jang Gi Ha was asked whether he wrote anything for IU on the album, and he responded, "All the lyrics are fiction. All 10 songs are about love, so it'd be a lie if I said that none of them had to do with my personal life."

Jang Gi Ha continued, "However, rather than having my experience in it, I thought of writing the most average and universal kind of love." He also commented on why he attempted at writing love songs for the first time, saying, "I always thought love songs were cheesy, but I think we can write love songs in our own way now."

DEAN, like many K-Pop fans, revealed himself to be a big fan of IU!

On the June 3 edition of 'Sketchbook', DEAN shamelessly talked about his love towards IU. At MC Yoo Hee Yeol's question on the K-Pop artist he most wants to collaborate with, DEAN answered immediately, as if he was just waiting for that question, "IU." DEAN went on to explain his loyalty for IU with a weird analogy, saying, "When an elephant performs tricks with its trunk, people enjoy it, correct? But that wasn't the elephant's design," drawing a tinkling of confused laughter from the audience with his odd comparison of IU to an elephant.

DEAN added, "I even have a song written for IU," and sent a personal message to her. He said, "I can't show you on TV, so please contact me."

Perhaps we should be looking forward to a DEAN x IU collab some time soon?

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 Sulli.

Singer-songwriter Dean expresses his admiration for and desire to work with fellow singer-songwriter IU.

Known for writing hit songs for EXO, VIXX, John Park, and Lee Hi, Dean talks about juggling songwriting demands with pursuing his own singing career. “Rather than songwriting, I am focusing on my activities as an artist,” Dean says. MC Yoo Hee Yeol responds, “So is that why you rejected my [songwriting] request?”

Dean chooses IU as an artist he hopes to write a song for some day. “You know how people love it when elephants do a trick wit their trunk? Well that’s not what the elephants intended. I think IU is like that,” Dean says, as the audience laughs at the farfetched analogy.

He also sends a video letter to IU saying, “I have a song I have written just for you.”

Meanwhile, this episode of “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” featuring Dean aired on June 4 at 12:20 a.m. KST on KBS 2TV.
