Since debuting at a young age, K-Pop idol IU has always caught the attention of fans for her stunning vocals, Princess-like visuals, and charming charisma. If she wasn’t perfect enough, it seems like idols and netizens alike never have anything but kind words to say about the idol’s personality.
Recently, it seems as if more positive stories about the idol have resurfaced after the 2021 Melon Music Awards (MMAs), which took place on December 4.
IU was one of the biggest stars to attend this year’s event and won several awards alongside performing. However, it recently seems as if there is more focus on IU’s personality.
One fan recently shared what it was like seeing IU at the awards ceremony. In particular, most of the performances were pre-recorded, including IU’s mashup of her hits. However, they added that when her performance was shown, IU actually came out and did a small dance for fans while it was playing.
They then explained that IU asked the production team to turn them on once the event was over and the staff was starting to pack things away.
She then picked up a microphone and thanked everyone for coming to the event. The fan then explained that her actions made everyone in the venue fall for IU even more.
If that wasn’t enough, when the event had finished, fans waited after to catch a glimpse of their favorite idols. The same fan shared that as IU was leaving the building, she made sure to open her window to greet fans for what was one of the first times since the pandemic.
A close-up image from that moment also shows IU getting very emotional, and it looks like she has tears in her eyes as she waves to fans.
Yet, it isn’t the first time IU’s genuine personality has been revealed to fans. Last year, IU’s drummer Kim Seung Ho explained how amazing IU is and that what you see is what you get.
She’s really the best. She often gets misunderstood due to her shy and quiet personality, but once you get to know her more, you’ll find that she’s really a genuine and honest person.
