[★TRENDING] IU’s lyrics for “Zezé” gives rise to suspicions of lolicon concept for “CHAT-SHIRE”

IU‘s latest album CHAT-SHIRE has been a hit since its release over a week ago, the title track “Twenty Three” taking over the charts with all-kills under its belt.

With the immense positive reaction that the album has received from the public, criticism has also reached it as netizens discuss IU’s choice of lyrics for her song “Zezé” which are supposedly indecent.

Additionally, a netizen on Pann goes further to point out that a photographer pointed out the hidden concept behind IU’s CHAT-SHIRE jacket albums, a lolicon concept. Lolicon is a Japanese term for a “lolita concept” and usually refers to cartoon of very young looking girls who are displayed in sexual situation or poses.

“To start
IU is under fire for a plagiarism article but more importantly I think you should take a look at her lyrics in “Zeze”

The lyrics.”

(Partial lyrics to “Zezé” by 1theK and Koreaboo)

Look how your lips smile, like this is so interesting
I can tell by that face, you’re a mean one
Ah, even your name is beautiful, I want to keep calling it
What I imagine I can’t say out loud, but so adorable

Stroking sounds with those little fingers
Singing of colors and sights in your ticklish voice, yeah

Zezé, climb up the tree
Kiss the leaves
Don’t fool around
Don’t hurt the tree, bad bad

Zezé, climb up the tree
Take the youngest leaf here
Take the only flower
Climb up me
Climb up me

Like a blooming flower,
Look at the two cheeks becoming rosy
You’re very naive, but obviously cunning
You seem like a transparent child
Something about you is dirty
What’s living inside of you,
There’s no way to know

Above you, there’s a sunshine
But there are faint signs of dark clouds within you oh

Zezé, climb up the tree
Kiss the leaves
Don’t fool around
Don’t hurt the tree, bad bad

Zezé, climb up the tree
Take the youngest leaf here
Take the only flower
Climb up me
Climb up me

I want to touch you once more
I wait for you every day
Come and take it all
I want to call for you
I wait for you every day
Even though you sneak away,
You’ll come see me again tomorrow night

Zezé, climb up the tree
Kiss the leaves
Don’t fool around
Don’t hurt the tree, bad bad

Zezé, climb up the tree
Take the youngest leaf here
Take the only flower
Climb up me
Climb up me

Capture of interview with IU in which she talks about the track “Zezé,” a track inspired by the story My Sweet Orange Tree. He (Zezé) is described as sweet and angelic but at other times cruel. IU says that she finds him both “charming and sexy.” The lyrics for her song is spoken from another character’s view, Minguinho, to Zezé. 

My Sweet Orange Tree is an autobiographical novel written by José Mauro de Vasconcelos about a five-year old Brazilian boy by the name of Zezé who is known to be mischievous when left alone at home while the rest of his family are busy working to support the family. Because of this, his parents and older siblings physically discipline Zezé for his pranks. However, while in school, Zezé is described as an “angel” and with a heart of gold. The teachers love him because he is intelligent. He later finds refuge in a small orange tree in his family’s new home following his father getting laid off from work. Zezé can somehow communicate with this tree named Minguinho.

“Above is a picture of IU’s interview.
If you’ve read ‘My Sweet Orange Tree’ you would know Zeze is not portrayed in the books the way he is portrayed in this song..
And also, there is controversy over the lyrics of ‘Twenty-Three’ and the lolita description in the photos.”

“You see in the back of this photo there are 3 books titled, “Leon”, “Delicate”, “Discipline.” Leon, as everyone knows, has a strong lolita aspect. Delicate in the lolita world means ‘a fragile girl who is easy to seduce sexually.’ Discipline in the lolita is when an adult male sexually disciplines a young girl. Isn’t it obvious what they’re trying to do when 3 most cliche words in the lolita world are in her photos?”

“This angle and setting is obvious to anyone that knows even a bit about photography. It’s so cliche what her white overall and messy hair is portraying. I haven’t seen the music video for ‘Twenty Three’ but I can say these pictures at least are lolita concept.”
