DEAN, like many K-Pop fans, revealed himself to be a big fan of IU!

On the June 3 edition of 'Sketchbook', DEAN shamelessly talked about his love towards IU. At MC Yoo Hee Yeol's question on the K-Pop artist he most wants to collaborate with, DEAN answered immediately, as if he was just waiting for that question, "IU." DEAN went on to explain his loyalty for IU with a weird analogy, saying, "When an elephant performs tricks with its trunk, people enjoy it, correct? But that wasn't the elephant's design," drawing a tinkling of confused laughter from the audience with his odd comparison of IU to an elephant.


DEAN added, "I even have a song written for IU," and sent a personal message to her. He said, "I can't show you on TV, so please contact me.


Perhaps we should be looking forward to a DEAN x IU collab some time soon?

    I didn't know who DEAN was before but I do now.  When YHY mentioned that he wrote songs for idols, I wasn't expecting much tbh but his own tracks are a lot heavier w/ no fluff and showcases his style. Some tracks remind me of the Weeknd, who I listen to despite not relating to most of the stuff he sings about but I do appreciate his craft. People also brought up some K RnB artist names in the comments who I think are talented. IU and DEAN would make an interesting collaboration, no doubt. Their live singing is as good as, if not better than, their studio version so the live performance is already going to sound amazing. I can't imagine IU singing something like DEAN's Pour Up or I'm Not Sorry but his tracks like Half Moon and What2do is more feasible.

    Irrelevant but I'll oblige and take the bite. Here's the thing, I'm a fan of IU because of her music and many other reasons unrelated to anything pertaining to her personal life or her "image" so I'm not bothered by the picture itself just you being childish but whatever right?

    Hmmmm....I don't understand it. ""When an elephant performs tricks with its trunk, people enjoy it, correct? But that wasn't the elephant's design," . Is he lowkey diss IU?

    What he meant was that elephants don't do "tricks" with their trunks for the purpose of impressing people; what they do is natural. But people are impressed anyway. He's comparing this to IU's talent as something natural and unforced, but it still manages to impress people :)

    Ahhh I see~ It should be more like "But that wasn't the elephant's intention" instead of design. I thought like he diss IU for taking someone else work i.e. the Britney plagiarized thingy or that someone else composed the song, but IU get the spotlight for it.
