Fans Believe IU Is Behind Her “Hotel Del Luna” Character’s Playful Instagram Account

IU is 200% Jang Man Wol for the time being.

Since Hotel Del Luna premiered, a new Instagram account popped up – allegedly belonging to the drama’s fictional character Jang Man Wol. Fans believe IU, who plays this very character, is behind the cute posts that have been being uploaded to the account!


The account handle “fullmoon.long” points to it belonging to Jang Man Wol. The name “Man Wol” translates to full moon, while the last name “Jang” could mean long. Initially, viewers speculated it was some kind of Hotel Del Luna show’s account…


… until the account kicked off by sharing a picture of dumplings that was taken in a scene…


… as its first post! The caption read, “Dumplings from the restaurant” – like any Instagrammer would probably post a food pic. As soon as it was shared though, viewers immediately began following the account and now it has 79.7K followers!


Now the feed has various moments from the drama Instagrammed. IU, as Jang Man Wol – assumed to be 1,300 years old, is embracing her identity as the character and posting pictures of herself:

Here’s a picture of when I was young, in celebration of 10K followers.
