IU and Lee Hyori are giving us all the feels with their sisterly relationship, and this week is no exception. On the September 3 episode of JTBC’s “Hyori’s Homestay,” the two singers went on a hike and ran into a fan of IU, who started sobbing when running into IU.
On the car ride home, IU said, “I’ve never met a fan that sobbed like that before,” and continued, “A while ago when I was in elementary school, I was a big fan of g.o.d and went to a live broadcast. That was the first time I met g.o.d and cried.”
Lee Hyori also then opened up about the fan encounter and how happy she was for IU. Then she said, “In the past, no matter where I went, I was the main character. Recently, I saw through our homestay guest that he only had you in his heart because he’s a part of the generation that likes you,” then continued, “Now I’m going to be releasing an album, and I may be behind my juniors [in chart rankings]. But I am naturally practicing that possibility and when that time comes, I may be able to accept it, thanks to you.”
Lee Hyori added, “God must have sent you to me to learn all of this. Thank you.”
