IU will be making a special appearance for her Chinese fans after being invited to one of the biggest events of the new year.
On January 27, an entertainment industry representative told a Korean media outlet, “IU will be appearing on the live broadcast of the Hunan Television New Year Special on February 2.”
Hunan TV is one of China’s major broadcasting stations and has adopted the format of many successful Korean reality shows such as “Running Man,” “Dad, Where Are We Going?” and “I Am a Singer.”
The New Year special will ring in the Chinese new year, featuring appearances by Jang Baek Ji, Liu Wen, Tian Liang, and Zhang Jie (Jason Zhang). Other broadcasting stations in China air similar programs around the same time.
IU’s agency confirmed that after appearing on the show, she will be returning to Korea to celebrate the lunar new year with her family.
