IU is beloved by everyone for her incredible talents as an idol and as an actor, as well as her otherworldly beauty and compassionate soul. Nicknamed the “Queen of Fanservice,” these fifteen moments are only the tip of the iceberg of her constant love and desire to take care of her fans.
1. 2022 Cannes Film Festival
With her recent attendance at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, IU is unchanging in showing her love and dedication to her fans.
2. Kiss On The Hand
IU showed her gratitude with a kiss to this fan for planning the fan project that made IU tear up during “Dear Name” at her 10th-anniversary tour stop in Hong Kong.
3. Her Kind Words
IU’s words always have a way of touching the heart.
A fan asked IU to nag them and tell them to work harder to live a good life but instead IU just said “You’re doing okay you’re already doing well. Just live happily 💜”
