On the latest episode of IU’s Palette, her latest guest was a legendary actor that nobody was prepared for: Gong Yoo!
In the video, the two discussed their first meeting, Gong Yoo’s acting career, and IU’s music! When looking at the first time they met, IU explained that Gong Yoo had actually predicted her successful career.
At the end of the video, IU asked Gong Yoo if he could make another prediction for her about the next five to ten years after his proven track record!
Even with the pressure, Gong Yoo decided to give it a shot. The first thing he looked at was IU’s future acting career. There is no denying that she has already shined starring in shows such as Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo and Hotel del Luna, but Gong Yoo sees an even brighter future ahead.
I have high expectations for Lee Ji Eun (IU) as an actress. I’m very excited to find out how Lee Ji Eun will do as an actress on TV or in theaters. Like you have been a successful musician, you’ll be in a nice work that will present yourself as a great actress.

He then emphasized that IU should be flexible with the timings and maybe give or take a few years to happen!
Gong Yoo then revealed another wish he has for IU in the future of acting, but this time it also includes him!
Another wish I have is that I get to see it happen next to her as an actor.
— Gong Yoo
Gong Yoo will have to come back on IU’s show in ten years to see if his predictions are right again! In the meantime, you can watch the whole video below.
