IU’s actions toward fans after the closing ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival attracted the attention of Korean netizens.
On May 29th, the fanpage of singer-actress IU uploaded a video showing IU on her way back to the accommodation right after the Cannes’s closing ceremony. While returning to the hotel, IU heard fans screaming “Unnie” so she turned her head back and held their hands. When other fans asked for a handshake, IU, who was holding her dress with both hands, stopped and reached out for her fans. She smiled brightly and shook their hands.
After watching the video, fans around the world commented “She signed and took selfies with fans a lot and now she even shook hands with them”, “I want to buy those hands”, etc.
IU attended the 75th Cannes Film Festival with the director and cast of movie “Broker”. The lead actor Song Kang-ho became the first Korean male actor to win Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival.
