On November 23, a photo of IU with a fan in the backstage waiting room was posted on an online community board. The photo, titled “Still Pretty IU,” shows the female musician flashing the “V” sign with her trademark “innocent” smile across her face. Her facial expression tells the star singer’s been doing fine even after all the media scrutiny and fan criticism following the leak of her bedside photo with Eunhyuk.
Netizens commented, “IU still looks beautiful. Hope she recovers fast,” “Is it the waiting room? I wish I could be there too,” and “It’s a relief that she’s doing fine.”
Meanwhile, IU mistakenly shared a photo taken with Eunhyuk lying on the bed on November 10. The photo only showed the faces of the two celebrities, but it caught a lot of attention since it looked like they were both in bed, and IU’s outfit seemed to be a pajama gifted by her fans. IU’s agency, however, addressed the controversy and explained, “The picture in question was taken when Eunhyuk visited IU who was very ill at the time.”
