IU revealed that she will be giving up her college admission.
One representative from IU's agency said, "IU is planning to be working in both Korea and Japan, so she is not in the situation to focus on her studies. She is planning to first focus on acting and music."
They continued, "IU herself thought that she doesn't want to take away the chance from another student and that instead she should focus on her music career."
Internet users who heard of this commented, "IU, the icon of a nice person", "Professionals think differently", "Instead of college, she earned us", etc.
