It’s a well known fact that IU‘s been a fan of Big Bang‘s Taeyang since… forever. Today must’ve been her lucky day, as the darling idol received a heartfelt hug from her favorite star right on stage!
Big Bang joined ‘Inkigayo‘ MCs IU, Nicole, and Hara to talk about their comeback. For their interview, the three girls chose to ask fan questions to create a memorable interview. One of those questions, sent by a fan named ‘A sunflower who only looks at Taeyang‘, asked, “White Day is coming up soon, who will Taeyang gift candy to?”
Coincidentally, IU who was wearing a crown made out of tiny sunflowers, leading her fellow MCs to suspiciously ask, “Was that question really sent by a fan?”
IU denied their suspicion and told them to “be quiet”, hurrying Taeyang for a response. Taeyang chose action over words and pulled her into a cute hug that had all cameras and the envy of fans focused on her!
The nation’s “younger siblings”, IU and Yoo Seung Ho recently reunited for a G by GUESS photoshoot.
The two looked like a trending couple in matching tees and jeans, but it seems as though Yoo Seung Ho may have a small crush on the singer off camera.
Yoo Seung Ho recently participated in a ‘Ideal Woman World Cup‘, where he had to choose between some of today’s top female celebrities such as Kang Sora, After School‘s UEE, Girls’ Generation‘s Seohyun, IU, and more.
The other girls seem to serve as no competition for IU, as Yoo Seung Ho bashfully but consistently chose IU over everyone with little hesitation. He even further confirmed his feelings by admitting that he prefers girls of the same age (IU) over older, and even younger women.
In the Korean entertainment biz, one of the best indicators of your popularity depends on the number of endorsement deals you can score. According to a recent survey, SNSD and Lee Seung Gi were the CF Queens and King for the year 2011!
SNSD and Lee Seung Gi both filmed a total of 27 different commercials in the past 12 months. SNSD filmed and endorsed brands for fried chicken, water purification systems, beauty products, and more. On the other hand, Lee Seung Gi took on commercials for pizza, banking and finance, refrigerator brands and more.
Next on the list were top stars like Won Bin (with 24 commercials), Hyun Bin (with 19), and IU (with 18).

During a recent interview, singer IU talked about her stance on pursuing further education.
She stated, “Up until my junior year of high school, I studied really hard. When I was in elementary and junior high school, I was class president a lot of the time. I really loved leadership. However, when I made my debut at the end of junior high school, my grades started slipping.”
“I don’t know if I really need to concentrate on my studies right now,” said IU. “I didn’t take my college entrance exam this year because I have no plans for college at the moment.”
She then continued, “Of course, some sort of common knowledge and understanding is important, but I don’t feel the need to know math or science. Recently, I’ve been hooked on reading books. When I’m by myself, I usually read or write lyrics.”
On the recent episode of ‘SBS Inkigayo‘, Sulli, one of the show’s MC’s and a member of f(x), made fans laugh with her adorable request.
MC Lee Seung Gi thanked his fans for his comeback by stating, “I will work even harder for the fans who waited patiently for me.”
Then Sulli suddenly stated, “Can you fuss my hair like you did to SNSD‘s YoonA?” in reference to the past episode of ‘Strong Heart‘, in which Lee Seung Gi fussed the young lady’s hair after she revealed that she loved that kind of action.
Taken aback, Lee Seung Gi stated, “Right now?” However he laughed shyly and quickly patted her head. To this, MC IU said, “Now all of the female fans will be jealous. Let’s announce the next artist.”
IU, Yoo Seung Ho, SHINee‘s Taemin, and Kang Seung Yoon have all confirmed that they won’t be attending college this year.
IU revealed earlier on that she didn’t plan on going to college for a while, so it’s no surprise that she won’t be taking the college entrance exam this year. Instead, she’s currently focusing on her comeback preparations.
Actor Yoo Seung Ho has also revealed that he won’t be taking the entrance exam in order to give his undivided attention to acting. His agency stated earlier that if Yoo Seung Ho finds an area that he wants to study, he will start the process of applying to colleges then.
SM Entertainment has announced that SHINee’s Taemin will not be taking the entrance exam as well. Due to his busy overseas schedule, Taemin was unable to prepare fully and therefore would not be submitting his application for the exam.
