In a recent interview with W Korea, singer IU revealed the difference between IU and Lee Ji Eun (IU’s real name).
IU believes that everyone is different at home vs. at work. She also shared that neither of her identities is fake.
Even if you’re not a celebrity, you’re different at home and at work. Neither is fake or more real, is it? It’s just me in each situation. I don’t think I’m the real me when I’m comfortable. It’s just different. Well, it’s the same, actually.
However, IU also believes that her “celebrity self” is good at working.
IU is more… She works, so I’m good at work. She is not too loose. She has a lot of responsibility, and she’s very alert.
As for Lee Ji Eun, she believes that she’s not good at anything other than work.
On the other hand, Lee Ji Eun… I’m not good at anything else other than work. I’m not very cheerful. I almost always spend time lying down. I make a lot of mistakes. The staff members, since they’ve known me for a long time, say that Ji Eun isn’t good at anything else other than work (laughs).
