IU apologizes for infamous tweet



Singer IU is apologizing for the controversial photo she tweeted last November - while continuing to avoid discussing what the photo actually was about.

While on the SBS talk show “Hwashin - Controller of the Heart” on Tuesday, IU took responsibility for the infamous tweet.

“First of all, I kept on thinking, ‘Why did I do that?’?” said IU. “I can’t blame anyone because that’s what I did, and I was very sorry.”

The IU’s self-portrait showed her with Eunhyuk, a member of the boy group Super Junior, lying close together with IU seemingly in her pajamas and without any makeup. Many who saw the image thought it looked decidedly romantic and rather out-of-step with IU’s super-cute, innocent image.

She said the resulting furor made her wonder if she should address the controversy or just keep quiet.

“It was not something that made me go through a hard time, but it made me feel sorry.”

She also added that Eunhyuk asked her if she’s OK.

However, IU did not give any further details about the photo itself or whether she and Eunhyuk were a couple.

At the moment, her agency is sticking to its story that the two took the photo together when Eunhyuk paid a visit to see IU when she was sick.
