Editor’s note: I really do not understand how people are supposed to look happy ALL the time. End rant.
IU’s expression during the episode of SBS’s ‘Inki Gayo’ that was broadcast on the 27th has become an issue.
She was a first place contender and appeared alongside fellow contenders T-ARA with the MC’s and had a blank expression which gained attention.
T-ARA sang a part of their song ‘Number 9’ and asked for votes while IU merely said “Please vote for ‘The Red Shoes’.”
Netizens wrote “She has such an earnest expression”, “Is she unhappy to be on the show as she is surrounded in a plagiarism controversy?”, and “Why does she look like that?”, and “She is prettier when she smiles.”
