(Photo of original letter that IU gave to a lucky fan, cr: 미국산사탕)

I want to keep telling my fans that I’ve really gathered a lot of strength through you guys and that I like my fans so so much.

What I have expressed to you guys is tiny compared to the love I have received directly from all of you.

So if you’re perhaps disappointed or if there’s any misunderstanding, I’m sorry about that.

After saying all this, I hope you guys don’t feel lonely like someone leaning against a wall and talking alone to themselves.

Everyone, someday the time will come when some urgent work comes in or you need to go for work, or you have exams, or your lover right in front of you becomes much more important than IU right?

Even if you decide to wash your hands off being a fan, I would like you to not regret having wasted time on someone who doesn’t even know about your existence and doing some useless stuff.

In order for you to have the confidence to feel that even if it’s little, it’s not a totally one-sided relationship and thanks to you IU could sparkle more brightly and be happy, I’ll also cheer all of you up in my own way.

So I just want all of you to know that everyday I think about you guys just slightly more than you presume.

Fan: kekeke watching your home video today, the picture frame we gave you is too large to be hung anywhere ㅠㅜ even so, try using a cord to hang it somewhere. With a nice light.
IU: I’m opening all my presents now.. It’s really huge.. For now I have nowhere to hang it so it’s just left standing in my living room.

image

Fan: Is the bandana you wore the same as the one you gave us as presents?????
IU: Yes, that’s right.

image

Fan: Noona, why didn’t I receive a polaroid in my goodie bag?
IU: I started out wanting to take 400 polaroids, but I didn’t manage to meet that quota, so only the lucky fans will get one.. Sorry

image

Fan: How many polaroids did you put in!! keke I didn’t receivve one, but I keep seeing people going Polaroid!! here and there keke
IU: I recall there to be about 50 to 60…

image

Luckyguy:  You really didn’t forget my name.. since you called me lucky-nim just now.. You’re indeed awesome ^^.. Looking forward to your fanclub.. Thank you for the sincere presents as well.

image

Fan: Today you had a conference with the respective fan communities (Note: Representatives from each fan community was invited onto stage during the fanmeeting) kekekeke Which fan community was the most interesting??
IU: Um.. Uaena was reliable. Starzone was heartwarming . DC gall was really hilarious. LoveU was lovely. IUstudio was.. why didn’t you speak up much..?!!!!

image

Fan: How did you come up with the idea to give the bandana as a gift? The neon yellow is really pretty *_*
IU: It’s the idea by a staff member at our company. We had a meeting discussing what would be something that both genders can put to good use!

image

Fan: Unni, but why did you tell us not to write long letters?? Once I start writing, it gets long… p p
IU: There’s a lot to read, so if it’s long, I’ll just scan through really quickly

image

Fan: When will the next small theatre concert be.. ><
IU: Let’s meet every spring.

image

Fan: Did you come up with the ideas for the presents? Why the rice balls..?
IU: I wanted to set up a place for you guys to eat, but time was not on our side and there wasn’t a place that could fit 400 people.

IU: Bye Goodnight That was my happiest Sept 18th since I was born -inserts selca-

Fan: If you’re starting a fanclub, the name will be important. How are you going to decide on the name??
IU: We might still just be Uaena or we might have a new name! Since it’s a place for you guys, I hope it’ll be something you guys like!

image

Fan: How about naming the fanclub ‘violet flower’ keke
IU: ㅇ0ㅇ!!!!!!…. Nope…. Clearly there’ll be embarrassed biscuits…. (Note: To IU, male fans are biscuits or hard tack.)

(Note: The ‘violet flower’ refers to what IU described her fans as in the From.IU post. Probably means the shy type.)

[FANCAFE] 140918 From.IU - This time I came to take care of my anbang* fans - 12:32 AM

image

(*Note: anbang fans are those who secretly hide behind their screens to fangirl/fanboy and support their idols in the background)

My fanmeeting just ended.
It was really fun and long (sorry) A fanmeeting that recharged my fans!! Alright you must be curious about the important announcement. It was terrible of me to just disclose it to those who came for the fanmeeting.. keke
The rumours about me going overseas to study, or leaving the industry, or getting married or taking up a new drama are all wrong!!!
We’re finally starting a fanclub!
To let my fans who are like violet flowers (only those who came for the fanmeeting would know this keke), be able to show a bold front like morning glory, I thought hard about it and came to this decision!
Some of you probably like it and some of you hate it, right? From a long-term perspective, I believe it’s a good decision! Umm later on, LOEN will post an announcement. Actually, I don’t think things will change very much. (Things that are too sleek and perfect are not our style!!) It’ll be slightly more convenient though..? So everyone, let’s get along well with one another.. Please do soㅠㅠ There won’t be any membership fees or club fees (Indeed, being systematic is not our style!) keke it might be a bit lax, but just see it as a fun event for everyone.

Also, secondly! I think I’ll have some simple promotion activities in the second half of this year. I released many songs this year, but haven’t really done any promotions, so my body has rested too much.. keke I plan to release a due with Yoon Hyunsang from our company. It’s a song I personally like a lot, so although it’s actually Hyunsang’s solo song, but I told our company that I wanted to duet with him. There are two possible songs and I really like both, but we’ll choose one soon and started preparing for the release in the second half of the year. I’m really really looking forward to it. It’ll be good, trust me everyone! was what I wrote and now I’ve reached home. Ah.. once again I enjoyed myself today. Thank you. Next year will be even better. Tomorrow, I’ll work hard to prepare to go to Jaraseom. Thank~~~You~~~~~~~~~~to all my fans~~~~~ Let’s have fun together for a long long timeeeeeeeeee❤ ?

IU: I like the number 8 best (I’m serious)

Fan: Jingjjang! Before you go for your debut 6th anniversary fanmeeting, I applied for 6 universities. If you reply, I think I’ll be able to get into them all..
IU: If you get in, post a proof shot!

image

Fan: Ms Jieun, is IU pretty today?
You would be able to see her preparing for her fanmeeting, how does she look?^~^
IU: Acceptable.

Fan: How many songs will you be singing for next week’s Usong University Festival..?? It’s been awhile since you came to Daejeon ㅜㅜ
IU: I think it’ll be 4 songs!

Fan: Congratulations jingjjang!! Give us a tiny spoiler for the fanmeeting keke
IU: There’s going to be an important announcement.

Fan: I miss you!!
IU: I miss Yeji too.

Fan: Unni don’t feel sorry.. I’m even worse as I was busy studying and didn’t even apply on the fancafe (Note: for the fanmeeting tickets) ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Have a good time at the fanmeeting!!!!
IU: Study hard and become someone great to promote IU! From a long-term perspective, you’re doing a good job!

Fan: Won’t there be phototime?ㅠㅠ
IU: You paid about 9180won to come (Note: Fans had to pay for the fanmeeting ticket), if I didn’t have a phototime, am I even being human?

Fan: What do you expect will be Uaenas’ reaction after you make the important announcement??
IU: !! -inserts picture-

Fan: I believe you’ll take care of those on the 2nd floor too (Note: The fanmeeting venue has two floors of audience.)
IU: Gosh!

Fan: Say something to poor me who will be sobbing while eating ricecake (meaning checking for updates) 9 hours from now…
IU: Of course you should have omegi ricecake! (Note: wordplay)

Fan: Noona, I’m the final 400th fan to be chosen ㅠㅠㅠ
IU: I know you’re the 350th though!! (Note: 50 fans were added afterwards as some didn’t pay up for their tickets.)

Fan: What’s the meaning of 9180 won? Is it because of Sept 18th?
IU: … Yepyep

Fan: Since it’s your 6th anniversary, here’s a question!! In the 6 years that you’ve performed on stage, singing which song gave you the most strength??
IU: When I sing “Child Searching For a Star” and hear Kim Kwangjin’s part, I gain the strength of a tiger.

[FANCAFE] 140918 From.IU - Six years old~~ - 12:32 AM

We’re 6 years old now~~~~keke
Ah it’s here again. September 18th! In the past year, we’ve worked hard so let’s celebrate among ourselves~~~hollollollo
Umm usually on one’s birthday, the number for the date looks bigger compared to the other days on the calendar, but Sept 18th is becoming another familiar date like May 16th. I have two birthdays!! keke Ah I’m in a good mood. We’ve depended on one another for the past 6 years (Some people joined us along the way, but I’m just going to type it as 6 years). Ah 6 is such a solid number. If the number 6 already feels this way, then 7, 8, 9 would be really solid~ I feel at ease.
Ah today I felt really~ at ease! I hope our Uaena will feel that way too! I’ll do a good job at the fanmeeting to keep up this mood. I’m sorry we could only allow so few fans to participate, but this won’t be our last fanmeeting! I haven’t seen you guys in awhile, so I’ll toss these concerns to the back of my head for a moment and have a good time at the fanmeeting! I released many songs this year, but I haven’t really had a chance to really sit down together with my fans, which I felt was a pity. I really missed you guys! So I’m really excited right now! Full of energy ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! keke Whether you’re coming for the fanmeeting or not, since we’re all Uaena, thinking of yourself as being here in spirit ㅠㅠ  I’ll create another opportunity for us to meet again soon. I’m grateful for simply the existence of our Uaena! I’ll stop by often today, so let’s chat a lot? For now, good night everyone ^_______^
