IU lands on Billboard's '21 Under 21'
Singer IU has landed on Billboard's '21 Under 21: Music's Hottest Minors 2012'!
IU, who landed at #15 on the chart, is receiving attention for being the representative Korean celebrity to make this list following the Wonder Girls who made the chart at #16 in 2010 and 4minute's Hyuna who also made the list at #17 last year.
Billboard revealed their reason for selecting IU:
Why She's Hot: Most South Koreans would be hesitant to label IU as "hot" -- after all, she's affectionately known as the nation's "little sister." But this past year, IU's unique charm and undeniable hits have made her into a bona fide superstar. Her reign began with the release of her comeback single "You and I," the No. 1 song of Billboard's K-Pop Hot 100 chart of the past year. While IU hasn't hit the same level of global viral awareness as Psy, her popularity has led to success in Japan, where she celebrated Hot 100 hits with Japanese versions of "You and I" and her single "Good Day." Meanwhile, the singer remains a formidable K-Pop force in with chart toppers like "Every End of the Day" (which held a four-week run at no. 1 on the K-Pop Hot 100), "Peach," and a collaboration with her labelmates FIESTAR on "Sea of Moonlight."
Other superstars on the chart include Justin Bieber, who topped the list again, Selena Gomez, One Direction, and Miley Cyrus.
