IU’s diary entry from 6 years ago revealed
Although she’s known as a singer now, IU is reported to have attended acting school two years before her 2008 debut.
A recent post titled “IU’s diary from six years ago when she attended acting school” was published onto an online community board, and netizens are buzzing over IU’s adorable entry.
The entry from six years ago seems to have been written when the star was practicing her role as Emily in the popular play ‘Our Town‘.
Her diary read:
I suddenly thought I should read my lines for the play today. I thought it’d be fun since I’ll only be doing this once or twice. Anyway, I started practicing. I skimmed over the script, but my lines were a bit weird. ‘Take me. Take me to my grave at the top of the hill.’ The character also writes a letter to herself that is really encouraging. ‘Have strength. Everything will be fine. You’re the best. You’re special’, etc. In about ten years from now (I’ll still be only 24 years old), I hope I’m very happy with life so when I re-read this entry, I’ll be able to smile and laugh.
Netizens who came across the post commented, “It’s amazing how a middle school student is able to write such entry,” “IU was a child with deep thoughts six years ago,” “I didn’t know IU also practiced acting,” and “IU from six years ago is so cute.”
