Recently, a past photo of IU has stirred a lot of attention on the internet. On an online community bulletin board, the photo along with the title, “IU Wearing a Bowl-like Hat During a Show” was posted.
As seen in the photo, IU is wearing a brown, bowl-like hat while giving a cute pose for the camera. What garnered the most attention was her unnatural and awkward expression, which was in stark contrast to the comfortable appearance that her fans are used to seeing nowadays.
People who saw the photo commented, “I did not know IU had such a past,” “It really looks like she’s wearing a bowl on her head,” and “I’m guessing she looks a bit awkward since this photo was taken not too long after her debut – nonetheless, she still looks cute.”
