“I Don’t Have Intentions Of Getting Close To Her…” — Kim Sejeong’s True Thoughts About IU Will Surprise You

Netizens relate to her 100%.

IU is one of the biggest stars in South Korea. She’s often called the “idol of idols” — even BTS’s Jungkook is her fanboy!

Actress and singer Kim Sejeong also expressed her deep admiration for IU on the radio show Jung Oh’s Song Of Hope, Kim Shin Young.

IU has been Kim Sejeong’s role model for years. Even during her pre-debut days, Kim Sejeong looked up to the singer-songwriter. As a fellow entertainer now, it’s for sure that Kim Sejeong would’ve had plenty of chances to get close to IU. Here’s why she didn’t.

I really love IU sunbaenim. I think it would be nice to have a meal with her someday, but I don’t have intentions of getting close to her. I’ll be so nervous, and the closer we are, I feel like the more mistakes I will make. I’ve been a true fan of hers since the past. During college, they asked us to choose our role model or the singer we respected, and I chose IU sunbaenim.

  • I know how that feels.
  • Wow, LOL. I know how that feels haha. I would love to go to my idol’s concert and get their autographs, but eating 1:1 with them and hanging out? I’d hate that. How dare…someone like me…? I just want to have my idol be my idol and not someone I know.
  • Ahh LOL. I know how that feels.
  • I kinda want to just like maybe have a meal with 20 people, like as a team dinner or something, and eat quietly before gathering the courage to say one word to them.
  • I know how that feels too. I also got chosen to go to my actor’s fansign, but I didn’t go. I wanted to maintain the distance by myself LOL.
  • I’m like that too. That’s why I’m so fascinated by those fans who go to offline events and act friendly to their idols, because they’re so different from me.
  • That’s right, that’s how otakus feel.
  • I get that too LOL.

Of course one would be incredibly nervous talking to their favorite star! Looks like celebrities are not immune from being starstuck.
