Recently, two of the most unlikely idols teamed up for a collaboration, and it was none other than Jay Park and IU! The iconic artists recently released their track “GANADARA” and netizens couldn’t get enough of their interactions.
From the minute the music video was released, netizens quickly fell in love with the duo’s chemistry… even if it was only for a minute.
Well, if that one minute of chemistry was too much for netizens, they were treated to even more content when IU invited Jay Park to her YouTube series IU’s Palette. During the episode, they shared some TMI from the recording studio, experiences together, and their fondness for each other.
In particular, IU and Jay Park spoke all about what it was like filming the music video for the track. Although IU is a professional when it comes to music videos, the female idol shared how much she loved the fact that she could just be IU in the video, not portray another character.
Jay Park then added that IU played such a huge role in the music video and after she joked that she was some help, Jay Park added that the idol was actually sensational that day and during the performance.
As expected, IU then showcased her playful personality, asking, “What kind of sensation? Please be more specific.” Yet, she probably wasn’t expecting as he started complimenting her.
It’s a bit embarrassing to say this but everyone said you’re gorgeous.
— Jay Park
When IU pointed out that she thought she did look gorgeous that day, she explained that it was one of those days where she thought she looked amazing, and Jay Park couldn’t hide his laughter at the response.
He even added that the timing of the music video shooting was all done on purpose for that reason.
We scheduled it on that day on purpose. Set the date, IU will be pretty that day.
— Jay Park
Yet, it wasn’t just Jay Park complimenting IU that showcased their chemistry. At one point in the video, the female idol could stop sharing her admiration for the rapper’s skin and even though Jay Park put it down to makeup, IU knew it wasn’t right.
You have the clearest skin in Korea. You really didn’t change at all. We have clips over ten years old…
Yet, it isn’t surprising how much the duo is willing to compliment each other and the respect they have. In particular, an old video has resurfaced showing Jay Park revealing that IU was his ideal type…
Not to mention how excited both IU and Jay Park were to be working together. Not only did Jay Park immediately contact IU when she recommended they work together but IU is also a massive fan of Jay Park… so it seemed like a match made in heaven.
It definitely seems like this collaboration was a match between two artists who couldn’t have any more love and respect for each other. After the track’s success, hopefully, it isn’t the last time netizens see them together.
