When it comes to K-Pop idols that are literally angels in the industry, not many can come close to IU. For anyone who has met her, they have had nothing but kind words about her personality and endless talent. In particular, many have noticed that she perfectly embodies her MBTI type, which is INFP.
INFP is known as the mediator, and their personality traits include being creative, imaginative, responsive to the arts, and much more. In particular, many INFP’s are known to be empathetic and reluctant to take sides, and this is something IU showcased when working with AKMU!
More recently, she showcased another strong INFP trait, and that is shyness! IU recently released some behind-the-scenes footage from the recording of her “With the Heart to Forget About You” music video featuring the actor Park Jung Min.
During the video, IU revealed how the actor was picked for the part, and it seems like both of them were eager to work with each other from the very start!
Our director is a huge fan of Park Jung Min. So, she told me that she wanted the male character to be played by him. I told her, ‘I will do whatever it takes to get him. I had never met him before, but he accepted immediately.
IU added that she is also a huge fan of his movies and was very excited to meet him. Yet, the person behind the camera pointed out that she seemed shy and awkward around him despite this.
Yet, Park Jung Min shouldn’t take it to heart because it seems as if she is like that normally, and it is because of her personality, and it seems as if he was the same.
Well, I’m always like that. I heard that he is also shy. I am not talking to him in case I make him feel uncomfortable.
After saying that, it shows that even though it may have been due to shyness on both parts, IU also considered how she thought he might feel about working with her.
Later on during the shoot, the two once again showcased that they are true introverts as they sat down to rest, but with some distance between each other.
Luckily, the two managed to create magic in their music video by portraying this beautiful couple in love. Despite their shyness, it showcases how professional they are and that those with similar personality types seem to work together perfectly and have fantastic chemistry.
During the music video shoot, IU once again proved just how genuine and considerate she is, cementing her status as the “Queen of K-Pop.” You can watch the whole video below.
