In a past interview with W Korea, IU was asked what her biggest weakness is, and she gave an honest answer that no fan expected from the star who appears to have the beauty, talent, and wealth.
IU, who releases albums and appears in dramas and films, is often referred to as the icon of diligence.
But the weakness that she pointed out for herself was actually laziness and lack of will.
I’m not the type to enjoy attempting new challenges, and unless I’m in a place where I feel safe, I don’t assimilate with the situation or enjoy it very much.
For that reason, IU actually gets jealous of people who are good at adjusting to new environments and enjoying that kind of experience.
Moreover, such people make IU feel incompetent.
I’m jealous of people who are much more diligent than I am. When I meet people like that and they have no complaints about that lifestyle, I suddenly feel incompetent.
I’m jealous of people who enjoy doing things that I have to work very hard to accomplish.
Some of the fans’ comments to the confession include “I didn’t know IU would have such worries“, “I suddenly feel closer to her“, and “I guess people are all the same“.
You can’t have it all, right?
Not even IU.
