Singer-actress IU talked about the viral clip of her kissing Thai actress Davika Hoorne at Gucci event
On September 23rd, the YouTube channel “Elle Korea” uploaded a video titled, “This is an explanation for IU’s shocking kiss issue (feat. Davika Hoorne)”.
Earlier in May, a video of IU kissing Davika Hoorne on the cheek at Gucci fashion show made headlines.
During the interview with Elle Korea, IU said, “Davika who’s next to me here is a very outgoing person. And she’s the It Girl too, isn’t she?”, adding “She approached me first and said, ‘You and I have the same birthday’. So we bond through that. That day was my birthday”.
She continued, “Since we both had our birthday, we told each other ‘Happy Birthday!’. Suddenly she tilted slightly towards me. I was not sure if she was going for a kiss. It was so dark and so loud. I wasn’t sure what kind of gesture I should do in that moment”.
“I feel like I’ve seen this in a western drama”, IU added, “So I thought, so I have to kiss..? I made that decision in an instant. If you look at me here, for a good 0.1 second, my pupils were shaking. You probably can see it. I went, ‘Do I have to give a kiss?’. If it wasn’t what she meant, I could have been rude if I misunderstood her.”
Finally, IU said, “But anyway, Davika responded cheerfully. It was the first time for me as well. So with that, Davika and I gained a special and interesting bond with each other”.
