Even though she might have had some regrets.
And impressed her costar, Lee Joo Young, by sharing a room with her in France.
In a recent behind-the-scenes vlog, IU only further proved her effortless charm…
And showed just how humble she is.
Although IU is one of the most popular K-Pop idols, even internationally, she was continually perplexed that she had so many fans who came to see her in France. She first expressed her surprise that so many fans came to greet her at the airport.
After I landed at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport in France, I saw a huge number of fans waiting at the airport. So that felt really amazing.
IU was surprised that any of her fans, known as Uaena, lived in France. And endearingly gave them the nickname of “Cannes Uaena.”
How can Uaena be in France? Should I call them Cannes Uaena? How does Cannes Uaena exist? It was so amazing. I was exhausted but I felt really happy.
But even once IU realized that her global impact extends to France, she was still surprised by the fans cheering her on at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. In fact, IU was so surprised that she felt like her fans’ cheers were actually a prank.
My fans were crying ‘IU IU’ at Cannes and I thought it was a prank cam. How do I have fans in France? I think that was more… more than the red carpet, I think that was quite impressive.
So many fans came to support her that IU managed to take time to talk with them, take photos, and sign autographs.
It was so hectic but a lot of fans came so I gave them my autograph. I tried to get as close as I can and talk to them. It’s too bad I couldn’t meet all of them.
Even though IU may be too humble to recognize how many fans she has, she showed her love for them as she expressed that their happiness at her 2022 Cannes Film Festival invitation was the “biggest reward” she could receive.
But it is a special day for me, for my personal life, so I turned on the camera to record it. I checked out my fans’ reactions, Uaena seemed so delighted so I’m also happy. I think they are very proud of the fact that I got invited to Cannes. Also my fans were quite satisfied with the dress, make-up, hairstyle I wore today. It’s the best for me if my fans like it. So I think that’s the biggest reward I got today.
