IU speaks up about the real estate controversy + swears on her entire career that she's innocent

IU voiced up about the real estate controversy

On January 8, IU personally addressed the issue with a lengthy post on Instagram. The singer strongly denied rumors of her using insider information for real estate investment. 

She stated, "Obtaining unjust information for a 2.3 billion KRW (2 million USD) profit. All of it is not true. I swear on my entire career - the most precious thing to me - to say there is not even a little bit of lie in me. It's a place I have decided on to stay for a long time and carry on my plans. However, there are still people claiming I have obtained unjust information with the goals of obtaining unjust profit. Show me your clear evidence."


IU continued, "I'm confident I won't become anxious or tired so I will receive an apology some day. In addition, as it was revealed yesterday, the building is used not only by me but also by many others. Reporters, please respect the privacy of those people and the neighbors."

23억 차익,투기를 목적으로 한 부당한 정보 획득. 전부 사실이 아닙니다. 저에게 있어서는 가장 값지고 소중한,저의 커리어를 걸고 이에 조금의 거짓도 없음을 맹세합니다. '오래 오래' 머무르며 많은 것들을 계획하고 실천하기 위해 결정한 자리입니다. 그럼에도 불구하고 여전히 제가 부당 정보를 얻어 부당한 이익을 취하기 위해 계획적으로 투기를 했다고 주장하는 분들은 명백한 근거를 보여주세요. 본인의 의심이 한 사람의 가치관과 행동을 완전히 부정해 버릴 만큼의 확신이라면 타당히 비판하기 위해 그 정도 노력은 해야 한다고 생각합니다. 초조해지거나 지치지 않을 자신이 있기 때문에 언젠가 꼭 사과 받겠습니다. 덧붙여 어제 공개한 대로,해당 건물에는 저뿐 아닌 많은 분들이 함께 생활하고 있습니다. 취재진들께서는 그분들과 동네 주민 분들의 사생활은 부디 존중해 주시길 부탁드리겠습니다.

$2 million is nothing for her. Not worth tanking her career over.

I think you have to realize that netizens aren't just one group of people who ALL support her. Not everyone in this world, no matter how generous and how nice you are, is going to like you. IU can donate a $100 billion dollars to charities and help get rid of a lot of diseases and she'll still have haters whether they're Korean or not. That's just how people are.

Well

1. Don't compare celebrities, especially not to one of the top 5 richest celebrities in korea. (Gdragon)

2. Fraud can be a number of things when talking about real estate.

3. Gdragon was accused of fraud back in 2012 when he bought a property and turned it into a little rental property (kind of like airbnb), it was just a banking issue. (See it in simon and martinas video where they actually stay there)

4. What she is being accused of doing isn't even illegal, it's just shady, so either way whether she did it or not, at the end of the day it doesnt matter. (i don't think she did it, she would have 0 reason to lie.)

5. if you're attempting to make this a sex issue, don't, it's the area she lives in, all the buildings are increasing in price, hers is just increasing the most.

6. Xiah Junsu has been dealing with real estate lawsuits since 2015, so i don't know what you're talking about at all lol.

The increase in price was proved to be fake news.

IU looks like the type of person who's really sincere and altruistic tbh. Besides, even IF she did it for profit... what about it? It's her well earned money at the end.


Also, if she wants to buy a part of the building to have a home, how's that a bad thing? sometimes this makes you able to make a modification to where you actually sleep for your own commodity. For example: painting a room, install a TV on the wall, etc. things you CAN'T do if you only rent so I don't see the problem?

As always, it's probably a tiny fraction of internet crazies raising a stink about this. 99.9% either don't care or wholeheartedly support IU.

can someone tell her to stop taking such hateful piece of shits so serious?she doesnt need to explain herself, there isnt a single thing she did wrong. using insider information is something most people do, when dealing with real estate.

and its still her own money, she can spend it however she wants. if it was something illegal, it would be another story, but there is nothing illegal, nothing morally wrong, nothing bad at all that she did.

and how they talk about "unjust" information and "unjust" profit, shows how they dont have any clue at all about this subject.


im not even a real fan, but its still disgusting how such pathetic hating trash act and have to bring everyone down on their own level of their miserable life and think, that would make them feel better...

as we can see with certain other hateful piece of shits here, like the south korea hating racist ryenlux, who uses multiple hater accounts like stopudelulu, holdthisLnoobs, kpoptrashtalker and a few years ago it was bigblueagain, bangeryun94 and wang_sejung. since always just hating around and he just cant stop and everyone who calls him out, will be attacked by him with the most pathetic lies, he even resorts to use fake screenshots that he has edited to make others look bad...

just shows how miserable his life must be, that he just cant stop hating around and wishing celebrities bad things to happen on a daily basis...


at least celebrities should learn to ignore such worthless trash. learn to differ between actual critique and simple jealousy and hate, something that can always be ignored, no matter what they say. especially when nothing bad happened at all, as it is the case here with iu.

The thing is that she has to clarify it, especially with accusations like this. People's mentality works in a way where if a person stays quiet, they'll automatically assume that they're staying quiet to think of an excuse and that they're automatically guilty for it. It's not just Koreans who will assume this. Anyone that knows IU will start to believe something is up if she decided to stay quiet about it and not respond to the accusations. I know people like to think knetizens are the absolute worst and also throw in majority of Koreans into the mix as well. But i-netizens do the same exact thing as what k-netizens do. It only seems to be k-netizens because you're on the other side.

i know, i never blamed just k-netizens, they are the usual haters, no matter where theyre from.

she could have said from the start, that she didnt do anything wrong and have them haters point out, what she did wrong, without trying to imply theres a problem with something she did, when there isnt anything bad that she did.

i blame these pathetic haters, that she has to go so far to even swear on her career, that she is innocent, when to every sane person it was already clear before, that she was innocent. so there was not really a need to clarify anything, it was just to shut up the haters, since they were the only ones who tried to blame her with something.

as i said, talking about "unjust" information and "unjust" profit, shows that these idiots dont even know anything about this subject. they kept changing their accusations, first they blamed her for buying a building just to make profit out of it, something pretty much everyone does, then they kept looking for something else, just because these hateful piece of shits just want to hate around without even knowing why and how...

Hi, just to clarify, insider trading is actually illegal, if she obtained the confidential information and acted upon it for her own profits. However I stand firm as a fan of IU, that she committed no such misdeed, due to her opening up about how she uses the land. This incident only shows how K Netizens are such screwed up people who can make something out of nothing. She even had to give up the privacy of her juniors and mother just to clear her name... No matter how many good deeds she does every year, even in secret, netizens are just trying to find a flaw in her, which is just agitating.

insider trading and inside information are 2 different things. buying buildings just for profit also is nothing wrong at all.

no matter how you look at it, there is not a single thing she did wrong.

seeing how the pathetic haters have to keep changing the accusations, shows, that they dont even know what to say and just want to hate around, because of their own, miserable lifes.


buying buildings is something many younger idols have done and still do and there were rarely any problems, now, i dont know why, maybe because to the hating scum iu could have seemed like shes weak, so they wanted to bully her, or whatever goes through an empty mind of such a hateful basement sucker, that they have chosen iu to hate on, either way, in the end it just shows how pathetic and stupid they are and obviously dont even know anything about the real estate subject...
