In the video, released on May 30, DK revealed he had been a fan of IU for a long time and when he was younger, he had sent her a “friend request” on her Cyworld, an older Korean social media platform.

I was IU’s fan. When I was young, I would go to your mini homepage. I thought if I made a “friend request,” you would accept it.

IU replied, “I hope you weren’t scarred.” To which DK replied that the rejection hit him differently.

At the time, I was honestly disappointed. Although now I think about it, it’s obviously understandable.

I hope this will make up for the pain I caused back then.
