IU Talks About Marriage and Pregnancy Rumors From the Twitter Incident for the First Time

IU has finally made a variety show appearance and talked about all of the crazy rumors that tailed after her for several months.

IU was a guest for the July 23 episode of “Hwa Shin” along with Lee Hyun Woo and ZE:A‘s Park Hyung Shik and Hwang Kwang Hee.

IU bravely opened her mouth on the rumors of her marriage and pregnancy that dominated the Korean tabloids after posting a photo of herself and Super Junior‘s Eunhyuk on Twitter.

First, they brought up the marriage and pregnancy rumors. IU said, “When I first saw the tabloids, it was the night of Lee Hyun Woo’s movie premiere and I was supposed to go. But my agency didn’t let me go. I was so angry. I can’t even watch a movie because of that kind of rumor? So in the end, I told my agency, ‘I won’t go to the premiere but instead, please catch whoever spread this rumor.’”

She continued, “We are chasing down those netizens. I’m going to meet them soon. This is one of the things that I’m most looking forward to in 2013. I will definitely meet them and if I need to, I will receive payments from them, even if it’s just 1 dollar.”

A short while after, IU was also asked about the Twitter photo. She replied, “It is correct that I posted it by mistake. I can’t blame anyone. Rather than feeling burdened, I was in a dilemma on whether I should feel sorry toward the other person [Eunhyuk] or if I should feel sorry to those who loved me or if I should feel sorry for the people who loved the person that I hurt [Eunhyuk's fans]. It was complicated.”

She continued, “I didn’t even know if I should come forth and clear up the misundertanding or just stay quiet. Honestly, saying that I was suffering doesn’t even make sense. There were so many others who suffered because of me… it’s my mistake so my sufferings doesn’t even matter.”

The MCs also mentioned that there’s a rumor that this whole thing was set up by IU herself. She commented, “It’s not something that I set up. I also hear that a lot from others but it’s not true. It was just a mistake.”

The MCs also carefully asked, “Have you talked with Eunhyuk ever since?” IU answered, “He asked if I was alright. I was so sorry about everything.”

It must have been a tough spot for IU to speak about sensitive issues like marriage and pregnancy as a young woman so many netizens praised her courage. On the other hand, many netizens felt as if IU’s explanation wasn’t enough and did not cover many important aspects such as her true relationship with Eunhyuk.

"many netizens felt as if IU’s explanation wasn’t enough and did not cover many important aspects such as her true relationship with Eunhyuk" Um, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't really think their "relationship" has anything to do with anyone? Just because you're someone's "fan" doesn't give you the right to barge into their personal life like that. Let's not forget Eunhyuk is a 27 year old man and IU a 20 year old woman.

I feel so sorry for these poor young people that can't even form normal natural relationship and instead have to worry about how "fans" (read people who want to live their fantasy life through you) will feel about them being in a relationship. It's like the whole country needs therapy. She can't post a pic of her with a guy bcos fans will be hurt!?!?!? What kind of caca is that....

The translation seems a bit off. She didn't exactly say she wanted to go after those responsible for the rumours spread around and demand money for false accusation. Whether or not she meant it that way ,I'm all up for these kinds of punishments ,so that netizens will learn that they can't hide behind their supposed "anonymity" forever and that there are consequences for any wrongdoing they have done and will do in the future.

I love how IU and other celeb's say they'll openly share their dating relationships if they ever date. She mentioned it on one of the last few episodes of Strong Heart. Yet if she really is dating Eunhyuk, then I guess their both lying or the guy is being a pu**y lmao. Btw, when she mentioned about going after the people who spread the rumors, you guys have to understand korean to actually know how she interpreted it on the show. I hate how Soompi and other kpop sites give off a poor vibe on some of these articles. When she implied it she was just curious who these kind of people are, and she never really cared about netizens who spread rumors and such but at that time she was really upset that she couldn't go to that movie premier. So she decided to ask her company to find these people so she can just ask them why they did it and stuff like "will you do it again" in a funny way, not something serious to the point she'll sue them etc. If you watch the show, herself and the others were laughing and enjoying what she had to say when she answered that part lol.


Take it easy all!

she apologize and admit that her fault all this happen.. now can we get over it?? about their relationship i mean even she explain there is nothing going on netizen will not believe it so its better for both of them to keep quiet about it.. the only one who know the real story is both IU and Eunhyuk and we cannot judge something we did't know..

i'm glad this is over :)

She's gonna demand money off the netizens who spread the rummor? it was/is just a rumor... you can't take rumors that serious... damn I'd be rich if I could get people who have spread rumors about me in the past.
