IU was born Lee Ji Eun on May 16, 1993, making her a Taurus. She has a younger brother, her blood type is A, and she’s 162 cm (5 foot 3 3/4 inches).
As talented as IU is, it took 20 auditions before she was eventually signed to LOEN Entertainment in 2007 as a trainee. JYP would later go on to joke that he would fire whoever turned her down if he found out who it was. Debuting at only 15 years old the next year, some fans have practically grown up with her. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who cares ore for their fans than IU; she is known for being very nice to her fans. IU also has a lot of older male fans.
IU has starred in a few dramas such as Scarlet Heart Ryeo, The Producers, Dream High and My Mister. Her roles in dramas have earned her two Best Couple Awards, a Best New Actress Award, and a Top Excellence Actress Award. IU was also appointed as the honorary ambassador for EXPO 2012 Yeosu Korea.
