The story of IU, a singer and actress, continues without end. From confirming gifts from colleagues and juniors after concerts to annual holiday gift stories, IU consistently captures public attention.
On the 31st, the MBC entertainment program 'Radio Star' revealed IU's anecdote in a special segment titled 'It's Spicy Soon.'
Yuna, a member of ITZY, disclosed, "We once attended IU sunbaenim's concert as guests. We all said 'it's an honor' and went into the waiting room, where there was a shopping bag for each of us. With handwritten letters. But each member received a gift from a different bag brand."
She added that the brands included G, B, L, etc. "But what was so touching was that she gave gifts that seemed suitable for each member. I got a B bag," Yuna shared.
Last year, former FIESTAR member Hyemi gained attention on 'Recent Happenings Olympics' by revealing, "When IU received her first settlement, she bought me a luxury bag," and shared that IU also gifted luxury bags to people around her.
IU is known for taking good care of people around her. Park Myungsoo mentioned that IU has been sending holiday gifts for 8 years, saying, "She actually sends them to about 100 people."
Gift confirmations from people around her, such as Yoo Hee-yeol, god, Noh Sa-yeon, Seo Ee-sook, Kang Han-na, etc., have been featured on various broadcasts and personal channels.
In December of last year, there was also a story about IU preparing gifts for all the staff of 'You Have Done Well.' The revelation mentioned expensive headphones worth 700,000 won and appropriately sized shoes among the gifts for drama staff.
Regarding her habit of giving gifts to those around her, IU once said, "I like writing letters and giving gifts to people around me. Someone said, 'IU is good at socializing.' It's a bit sad since I really enjoy giving gifts." The warm-heartedness of IU, with stars actively participating in gift confirmations, brings a heartwarming atmosphere.
