Singer and actress Lee Ji Eun (Known as IU) commented on the negative image surrounding her after the lolita controversy.
On the afternoon of April 11, tvN‘s “My Mister” held a press conference in Seoul Yeongdeungpo district, where actors Lee Sun-kyun, Park Ho-san, and IU joined the event.
IU said during the conference “I am aware of the controversy that has been linked to the last album that I released as a singer. I have come to realize that the process of delivering it wasn’t smooth and that if I do not reflect on it, someone will feel offended”
She continued and added “I also asked the director if he knew there was such a controversy. I also thought about the effects it could have on this drama. I was worried that I would cause a controversy that would unnecessarily affect the drama, so I asked the staff not to cast me at first. ”
“My Mister” tells the story of three middle-aged brothers, who are enduring the weight of their lives, and a strong, cold woman, who has been living a hard life of her own, as they come together in healing each other’s past scars.
