IU has become a hot topic for looking like the character Puss in Boots from the animated movie ‘Shrek.’
A set of IU’s photos were uploaded to an online community board along with the title “IU making the face of the cat from ‘Shrek,’ 3-level high notes in Japan. Happy Music.” In the photo, IU is indeed captured making a facial expression that looks like the adorable cat from ‘Shrek’ on the March 23rd broadcast of Japanese music show ‘Happy Music.’
The screen caps were taken from IU’s performance of the Japanese version of “Good Day.” Her sad, innocent look, which reminded viewers immediately of the wide-eyed cat, reportedly incited the protective instincts of male fans everywhere.
Netizens who saw the photos showed their love for IU with comments like, “IU’s ‘cat expression’ is so lovable,” “IU’s ‘cat expression’ makes me want to hug her,” “Japanese men must be melting at IU’s ‘cat expression’,” and “IU’s ‘cat expression’ is cute and also profound.”
