IU’s transition from K-Pop Disney Princess to Mature Pop Force That You Should Take Seriously is in full swing with her latest video teaser for “Everybody Has Secrets”, where IU gets all close and personal with Ga-In.
This is ,at once, the hype-est comeback and the most orderly one in IU’s career as well. Every pop star, especially solo artists who debut as young adults, eventually have to transition to be more “serious” and “artistic” or some shit that presumes that these pop stars mature in a way that can be reflected in their company’s music release schedule.
But, for all the reasons that there are to be dubious about these inevitable transitions, IU is off to fantastic start with her comeback as demonstrated by her music video teaser for “Everybody Has Secrets”:
IU still looks a little like a girl playing dress up, but there’s no lie in the fact that bringing Ga-In along for the ride ups the sex level dramatically. There’s no one quite like Ga-In who can just show up to a stage and suddenly make the whole room ooze with sensuality, even when being teamed up with the equivalent of Korea’s Snow White. I for one welcome the burgeoning brave new age of “IU, a Woman Who Feels Things. Sexually.”
