Special days with her bestfriends: from the wedding of Yoo In Na’s manager to T-ARA Jiyeon
Busy as she is, IU never misses out on special occasions with her best friends, and used to gain a lot of praise for her performance at the wedding of Yoo In Na’s manager.
Recently on December 12th, IU went to the big day of T-ARA Jiyeon, who is her same-aged best friend. It is reported that IU was among the earliest to arrive at the wedding, and decided to sing “Blueming” and send a lot of well-wishes.
In response, the whole venue sang along to the melody of Blueming, turning the wedding into a “mini concert”. IU also gifts Jiyeon a pearl tiara along with the message, “Live like a queen”. This is an extremely well-thought-out present, seeing that the tiara is reminiscent of Jiyeon’s group T-ARA, while the pearl is Jiyeon’s birthstone.
