[TRANSLATION] 140928 IU’s replies to comments on dc gall (3:12 AM)

리얼좋아 (IU’s ‘husband’): IU when you join as a dc member, you must must must know this. You musn’t join with the ID that you usually use. If a LOEN staff member sees this, do let IU know. I’m being serious here;; If you do that, the bad guys can use it to post evil stuff. 
IU (using her new ID): I just went with my original nickname though..? Should I delete it..?

EMfan: IU, before you go, tell us if the clothes fit you.
IU: I don’t need such good quality sports attire… Thanks to you guys, I’m working out in a classy manner. Thank you thank you.

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

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

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.)

IU: When I sing “Child Searching For a Star” and hear Kim Kwangjin’s part, I gain the strength of a tiger.
