The acceptance of IU into KPop is worth a biopic

Recommended Posts

A Beautiful Mind is about the eccentric mathematician John Nash, but instead of following his troubled life closely, it makes the movie as if it is a thriller.

Imitation Game is about Alan Turing, but again it has only used the more important aspects of his life which are used as backgrounds only, and concentrated on the relationship of someone who was 'different' (no. It was not about his homosexuality, but his inability to adapt to human emotions) to ordinary people.

It seems the story of IU, whose long history of menacing, undermining and trying to destroy KPop, could be made into a movie as well.

At first, IU began as someone who was a nemesis to KPop, someone who would end all the achievements and conquests and make Kpop revert to its old, isolationist past.

IU fought SM for years, was shunned for Grand Prize for most of her height, and her hatred against KPop grew every day and she sang songs to undermine it every time she could. As late as Sept 2017, her remake of a 1991 song prevented BTS from reaching #1 in Melon.

But , after that and she finally won a Grand Prize on Jan 2018, it seems Lee JIeun has transformed from a sworn enemy of KPop to someone who does not fight it. Money is not a motive since most of her income was earned in Korea and she had become the highest earning figure of Korean Pop in 2017 when she had a grand total of one (yes, ONE) concert outside of Korea. Like Na Hoonah, who travels to various cities of Korea even when he is over 70, Lee Jieun could have remained in Korea and make money by releasing more songs.

But, she mostly refrained from singing since then, and only released songs in the slower times of the year. She even got to release a Kpop song (BBiBBi), the first time in her life, in 2018.

 

It seems that the Kpop figures paying respect to her, and treating her as a Senior Singer despite of her lack of contribution to the growth of KPop and her long history of undermining it, might have changed her mind.

 

The most staunch communist fighters who took over China in 1949 became the most greedy capitalists of all; the descendants of communist bigwigs, including Xi Jinping, are called the Princelings and they are indeed quite richer than a lot of princes, dominating China's lucrative industries. It might be a demonstration of absolute power corrupting absolutely.

But, in IU's case, the younger singers paying respect to her might indeed have softened her hostility to KPop . She said she is going to concentrate on acting and would not release an album this year, probably; she appears to have abandon the fight against KPop, and since she was the most serious enemy of KPop in Korea and the trottists have not been able to overthrow the KPoppers (although long term they have the edge because of demography), for the time being Kpop can breathe easier.

How someone who spent her entire life fighting KPop transformed into someone who is now benign to it would be worth a movie, in my opinion.

And after every round of music stages, the performers all get into a battle royale backstage. Then as usual, She Who Must Not Be Named's power levels were so high she would snap half of them to bring balance to the queendom

In the perfect world that we live in, IU  would only snap the people who actually don't share her view of the world where we can support each other.  You see, I feel like certain people misunderstand her and use her for all the wrong reasons. They feel the need to pity anyone who breathes and is a bit successful though I am pretty sure that miss Lee Jieun is the type to share the spotlight with them too.

I also checked every single directory of the world and IU means love in all of them ❤️

I also think you need to look into the greatest, masterful, most original work, "Dream High" from the yesterdecade. This drama also starred Lee Jieun, an aspiring Kpop star who quite possibly been replaced by IU after their iconic bird dance à la Black Swan.
