Lee Ji-eun (better known as IU) is a South Korean singer and actress. She is best known for being a good solo singer, and for being the Nation’s LIttle Sister, up until she may or may not have gotten all up close and personal with Eunhyuk.
IU is as cute as button and that has long been her greatest strength and her biggest flaw. The girl can straight up belt it with the best that K-Pop has to offer but the little Disney Princess of K-Pop who can sing any note has long been stuck in one note concepts where she’s released either spunky K-Pop fluff (“Good Day”, “You and I”) or airy ballads and ditties (basically everything on Spring of a Twenty Year Old).
After exhausting the arsenal of different sounds that she could for lead singles (IU has done some really nice sultry jazz stuff like “4 AM”, but never as a single), all that is left for IU to do is expand her range into “dark and sexy” or whatever “Between the Lips” is supposed to mean (cough cough). And based on how things are going so far, it looks like she’ll adapt to singing about what’s between her lips just as easily as she took to being the virginal K-Pop superstar.
It’s about time.
Because this shit:
needed to go awhile ago.
IU is so cute that bunnies want to kill her and be her at the same time.
IU is so beautiful that she causes more traffic accidents than cell phones.
IU’s talent level is so high that it needs to be measured in light years.
IU gets more uncle fans’ blood pumping than Viagra.
IU is such a great singer that whales, dolphins and hummingbirds all flock to her call.
IU’s hotness is bursting forth like a supernova.
