Rookie singer Juniel reveals her relationship with singer IU prior to her debut
Rookie singer Juniel who is increasingly gaining popularity with her charming voice and doll-like looks recently revealed her relationship with singer IU.
Juniel who has been dubbed as the "2nd IU" insisted during her interview that she was "not worthy enough to even be compared with IU".
However, she did reveal her somewhat close relationship with IU. Juniel stated, "During my days as a trainee I personally met IU three times. A close older colleague of mine from elementary school was in the same entertainment as IU at that time. One day when I had free time and decided to meet up with that colleague, she had told me there was a "dongseng" she wanted to introduce me to. That person was IU."
She continued with, "The first time we met we went to go see a musical together. The second time we met, we went to a karaoke room and had a blast. We also went to a café afterwards and talked for a really long time. Because we are both the same age, IU and I were able to speak comfortably and easily relate to one another pretty quickly."
When Juniel was asked the question, "Do you two still hang out?" she shook her head and stated, "After we met about three times, I got rid of my phone to concentrate on training and rehearsing. That is when we stopped contacting each other and soon afterwards she had made her debut under the name IU. I'm not even sure if she remembers me. I haven't had the chance to see her yet. "
As for her title as the "2nd IU" Juniel stated, "I am extremely thankful of this title. However, I want to become a singer known for my own musical color and want to write legendary music. It has been four years since IU's debut, but it has only been a week for me. I feel like I have received such a title because I have not had enough time to show everyone the kind of artist that I am. As time goes by and I have am more able to show everyone my own style of music, I believe that title will disappear. My goal is to showcase my own unique colors and become the best singer-song writer."
Juniel, who was already widely known in Japan, made her debut in Korea on June 7th with her title song "Illa Illa".
