Singer IU shared her thoughts on society's tendency to view K-pop idols disparagingly.
On January 28 KST, EDAM Entertainment revealed a teaser video for IU's upcoming documentary, 'Pieces : 29th Winter'. Here, IU was asked to share her thoughts on the tendency to cast a disparaging gaze toward idols. To this, IU replied, "Personally, I don't agree with [the statement] that 'idols are different from musicians', or 'idols are different from artists'. I don't think idols are less serious than artists or musicians. Thus, if someone says one is above the other, or below the other, then I want to say that I don't agree with that. An idol is something good."
Meanwhile, IU's documentary 'Pieces : 29th Winter' will be released on March 16.
