Seo Taiji, who has recently released a collaboration with IU entitled “Sogyeokdong,“ has revealed that his wife, the actress Lee Eun Sung, is a huge fan of singer IU.

At a recent recording of KBS show “Happy Together 3,” the veteran K-pop star spoke in detail about his wife.

Seo Taiji explained that when he was dating Lee Eun Sung, she would often listen to IU songs.

Seo Taiji and IU’s collaboration track, “Sogyeokdong,” is a pre-release track from Seo Taiji’s much-awaited comeback album, and soared straight to the top of several music charts upon its release. Seo Taiji explained that he had not expected the song to be quite as popular as it has been, saying, “I was very surprised that the song hit Number 1 as soon as it was released. I think the fact that IU collaborated on the track is the main reason it has done so well.”

“Happy Together 3,” featuring guest Seo Taiji, will air on October 9 at 11:10 p.m.

[OSEN=Lee Hye Rin] It was expected that it would be unique, but it was more than expected.

IU’s version of Seo Taiji’s new song ‘Seogyeokdong’ which was released on 2nd, 12 am was not an easy song to understand at once. Even though it was the first time for him to release a pre-release song and notice his comeback with a song which a junior singer sang alone, the song itself was unique than anything else.

The most ear-catching thing is the slow unique music with the electronic source at the main. It is yet an uncommon combination in domestic music charts. Although electronic music has been a trend ‘boringly’ for the past years, it was uncommon to see combination of electronic source and clear ballad.

Seo Taiji’s unique sensibility is in the melody. It has easy melody which one could hum shortly, pretty words in respect forms, and nice and clear feeling overall.

The song which IU sang is fresh mismatching delicately. It could be awkward for the ‘latest’ Korea’s little sister to sing lyrics such as ‘eaves icicle under the lamp and sparrow sound’, but it is more unique due to that. It feels sadder since she...

We've already talked about the tragic second leads, but what about the secondary/side romances that happen between the other characters in the drama? It's always a good thing to see the hero get the girl, but it's just as satisfying to see, say, the hero or heroine's best friend happy and in love, as well. To that end, here are a few characters who found love despite not being the main characters.

Bo Na and Chan Young(Heirs)
Amid all the chaebol meanness, some of these spoiled kids rise above it. Bo Na and Chan Young were such a couple. They went to school together and grew to be in love. While the main couple in 'Heirs' was kind of annoying at times (he gets close, she runs away, repeat), Bo Na and Chan Young were sweetness personified.

Ga Eul and Yi Jung(Boys over Flowers)
Dashing, spoiled chaebol Yi Jung found Ga Eul when she was sad about a cheating boyfriend and then comforted her, making her feel special. He was looking for perfection; she believed there was a perfect someone out there for everyone. Somehow, they found they were perfect for each other, even getting together after years on different continents.

While the newly released single of Seo Taiji and IU is getting much love from everyone, it is also bringing suspicions of plagiarism.
On September 2nd, Seo Taiji and IU released their collaboration track, “Sogyeokdong,” bringing love and joy to the fans of both IU and Seo Taiji. Even now the song is sweeping through various Korean charts, topping in all of them.

Seo Taiji’s comeback is highly anticipated in Korea as it is his first return in five years.

But even in the midst of its high popularity, it was almost inevitable that the song would face plagiarism suspicions. Some netizens are suspecting that Seo Taiji plagiarized from Scottish duo Chvrches, and now the debate is heating up on the internet.

In many cases of Synth-Pop bands like Chvrches, synthesizers take a huge part in the genre itself, and this might have brought the suspicion of Seo Taiji’s plagiarism.

Seo Taiji’s company responded to the suspicion by asking the audience to listen Seo Taiji’s version of “Sogyeokdong,” due to its significant difference from that of IU’s.

When life gets too stressful, it's always nice to have a best friend who just gets you. The K-Pop world is definitely stress-inducing; and in the midst of paparazzi, rumors, crazy sasaeng fans, harsh netizen comments, and public misconceptions, some idols are lucky to have someone whom they can always count on to be on their side.

Suzy and IU: Watermelon Sisters
Suzy and IU were not always close. Although the two were co-stars on the famous idol drama 'Dream High', they were known to be pretty awkward around each other. That is until one fateful night, Suzy first approached her fellow K-Pop cutie by calling her and singing her happy birthday at 4AM. Now these girls are practically sisters, sealing their best-friendship with matching watermelon seed moles and frequent butt-spankings.

A recent incident concerning IU has been reported after a male fan found his way onstage while she was performing on stage.

The popular female soloist recently attended the “2014 Misari 7080 Festival” at Hanam Union Park in Gyeonggi-do on September 27th, performing several tracks including “The Meaning of You,” performed at the request of her fans.

As her performance was nearing its end, a male fan was suddenly seen running onstage and approaching IU, cell phone in hand. The male fan was immediately restrained and taken off stage. While IU calmly finished her performance despite the intrusion, it is clear by fan cams that she was shocked at the sudden appearance.

Following the end of her performance, IU gave an embarrassed smile and thanked her audience for listening.

This event was not found mentioned on any of IU’s fan sites, and has instead, been revealed through various video sites.

IU finished her remaining performances for the festival without any further similar incidents.

It was a very good day for the nation’s little sister, who reached an incredible milestone in her career on September 18— her 6th anniversary! And to celebrate the many achievements in her prosperous career, let us grab our own pairs of red shoes, and journey through 10 of IU’s songs you absolutely must listen to— 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

1. Mia
Because it is her anniversary, the very first song on our journey is her debut song ‘Mia’. This tends to be the song that shocks everyone upon discovery— how did a 16-year-old manage to handle such a ballad? Unfortunately, her first album was not very well received, but Mia is truly a diamond in the rough and has proven over and over that it is a debut song that only our leading lady possesses the capability of pulling off.

2. L’amant
‘L’amant’ is one of IU’s more experimental songs. With its jazzy element that is accentuated by the simplicity in the instrumental combination consisting mainly of cymbals, trumpet and piano, it creates almost an imitation of a Louis Armstrong track. The softness of the background accompaniment directs most of the attention to IU’s mellow...

Although we would not be getting a comeback until next year, get ready because IU will be releasing a duet with Yoon Hyun Sang! I know I am pretty excited already!

Singer IU will be releasing a duet song with Yoon Hyun Sang, a former contestant on SBS 'K-Pop Star' who is now signed under the same label as IU.

IU recently revealed during her 6th year anniversary fan meeting and also on her fan cafe that she will be releasing a duet song with the rookie singer by the end of this year.

She posted, "I personally like the song very much." IU also added, "Honestly, it was supposed to be Hyun Sang's solo song but I told the company that I wanted to do a duet. There are two possible songs and I really am pleased with both but we will be choosing one and preparing it for the second-half of the year."

Yoon Hyun Sang appeared in 'K-Pop Star' back in 2012 and placed in the Top 7 on the show with his moving performances and soothing vocals. Since then, he signed under Loen Entertainment and is preparing for his formal debut.

Who wouldn't expect IU to land on Koreaboo's "13 Ridiculously Cute Female K-Pop Idols Who Melt Your Heart"? I clicked on the article knowing IU would be on it, and sure enough, she landed the #1 spot!

Let’s take a break from the sexy and go to the classic: absolutely adorably cute. Some K-Pop idols were just meant to be fawned over and adored at how cute they are. From the popular IU to Taeyeon, sometimes idols just look way more cute than sexy.

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.

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.

I can not believe that angel is exist xD haha...who am I to know what or who is exist in this world right!?

Following the Top 8 Mukbang Online Streamers on Afreeca TV feature on allkpop buzz, we found 9 popular mukbang (eating broadcast) idols and groups who are known for the way they deliciously gulp down their food. Disregarding their agency's warnings to maintain the stereotypical idol image, these idols are not afraid to chow down and basically lose their rationality when it comes to food.

IU sheds her innocent and cute image by gulping down meat on 'Weekly Idol.' She continues to eat even as the MCs are doing their best to make her laugh and distract her throughout her feast. For seven minutes straight, IU munches on juicy 'chuk flap tail.'

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.

KBS 2TV's 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook' had a Jeju Acoustic Festival (JAF) special on September 13, featuring singers John Park and IU, who saw each other again for the first time in a long time!

IU said, "I like acoustic music with its simple composition. I think there's a high level of concentration," and performed an acoustic song with her soothing vocals. When asked if there was anything that came to mind in relation to Jeju Island, IU said, "I like Jeju Island's hallabong the best (a type of clementine). Its sweet taste is the best."

This cued John Park to appear holding a Jeju Island hallabong. He said, "It has been a while since I saw IU since a guest appearance at a concert. Today, she gives off a mature and womanly feel."

It is a three-way battle on this 'Who Wore It Better.' Three K-pop darlings—IU, miss A's Suzy, and A Pink's Eunji—were spotted wearing the same Check Ruffle 'Steve J and Yoni P' dress.

The dress is a red and navy plaid dress with a box top and ruffled bottom; it perfectly matches the girl-next-door charms all three ladies are loved for. IU wore the dress during her performance at the '2013 Korean Popular Culture Arts Awards,' Suzy in her September 2013 'Cosmopolitan' spread, and lastly Eunji at the VIP premiere of her film, 'Saving Santa' in December of last year. Seeing as these were all very different occasions, it's no surprise that they all styled their dress in their own unique fashion.

IU opted for a cute look—she paired the dress with black ankle boots and a statement necklace. Her short hair, in particular, made her look even younger. Suzy went for a minimal, natural look. She ditched the accessories and opted for high gray socks and black platform booties. Eunji went in a different direction, going for an edgy vibe. She wore the dress with a black leather jacket and black nylons, going for a winter-chic look.

There are those days when you are staring at your computer wallpaper image of your favorite K-Pop idol bias and you tilt your head towards the nearest mirror and *sigh*. You will go back-and-forth from your screen to the mirror and let out another, *sigh*. And then there are these people who don't have to worry about sucha thing!

Here are some non-celebrity doppelgangers who resemble our favorite idols!

Go Eun Bi, famously known for her Instagram account, has already garnered more than 3k followers because of her irrefutable similarities with the popular singer, IU. Some similar features include the straight eyebrows, circular-shaped eyes accented with natural-looking double eyelids, cheeks with just a smidgen of baby fat, and plump lips.
