    Anyone else not see what the fuss is all about? Her songs are just distinctly unmemorable..... maybe Twenty Three is half decent.

    Sis GD is the male version of IU. It's ironic

    To be honest I like her as a person but the songs are a no-no

    I like her.

    If you don't like her music, then you don't like her music.

    You're not expected to like all of K-POP. :)

    Her fuss is mainly in Korea so most international fans aren't going to get it as per usual with these things but she has a more varied discography than you've probably encountered

    I don't know, I used to ask similar question but Korea likes what it likes. I can't judge a whole nation's preference.
    IU is even bigger.

    Okay but that's your opinion. For fans like me, her songs are great. Taste is subjective.

    Yeah in the interests of a quick analysis I listened to her most watched MVs on YouTube as generally speaking they will be the biggest hits and give an overview.

    100% right about the I Fan thing different tastes to Korea of course

    Idk much about her personality, except she's, in one word, synonym for boredom. But I'm cringing every time when I see her trying to act like all innocent and cute, not to mention forcing the color of her voice. Yikes.

    Maybe listen to her modern times album?
    She's quite versatile.
    Red Shoes is a masterpiece
    Other memorable songs I can recommend are Jam and Black Out

    Her songs are the best for me, better than BTS's and Twice's songs for sure

    And I believe IU will be one of the most respected figure in South Korea in the next 10 years, standing on equal height with Yoo Jae Seok, Park Ji Sung, and Kim Yuna in the entertainment (music/sport) world

    Count me in. I don't like her music much. Some of the songs are not bad, but I'm really not a fan of her vocal. I kind of wish she'd write songs for other people and not sing them herself.

    I don't mind her acting though, her role in the recent drama My Ahjussi was pretty good.

    I'd say for a quick analysis you should find out what the title tracks are and then listen to those since that is the main thing but here maybe this'll pick your interest more
