IU's contract renewal conditions revealed: All staff will stay and get a raise


On Oct. 10th, the YouTube channel “K STAR Live Star News” introduced a series of IU-related facts. This channel revealed that IU said to her current company, “If you want to renew the contract, I want to take all the staff, who I consider as family members, with me” and asked the company to give them all a raise.

“They appreciate her request for their salary raise, but we think it must have been very touching to them as she expressed that she trusts them and wants to go with them to the end,” the channel added, “That’s why the staff call IU their ‘president’.”

This is not the only interesting fact about IU. IU is reportedly still using the guitar she received from a brand named K at the beginning of her debut. She not only gave her manager a luxury foreign car as a gift when he got married but has also donated money to alma mater and welfare foundations.

Meanwhile, IU renewed her contract with KakaoM (formerly Loen Entertainment) on July 18th.

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest as IU has always had a great relationship with her staff.

That's sweet, but you know thats only possible because she's the queen of Korea. If she was just a mid-tier singer her company would have kicked her out

true, but Im glad she is using that position to advocate for others. Some would not bother.

when you think there's people out there in kpop and korean entertaiment (specially men) that have more power, influences, conections and money than her....but they dont use them like this

we know and we appreciate her because of it, i mean a lot of people who make it big forget about those around them but she has always kept them by her side and appreciated them and i love her for it so it doesn't really matter that it's "only possible because she's the queen of Korea" (<- SO TRUE!) at least she's using her position for a good cause (providing other people stability and a better income)

We stan a queen who cares about the real MVPs.
Two of her staff ended up getting married to each other, so clearly they're a close=knit bunch. I guess when you're a solo artist with no members you rely on your staff and extended team quite a bit.

UPDATE: found this floating around the interwebs and had to share

love her!!

when you realise we always learn about those nice gestures because her staff mention them
.... not because she's on variety shows humble bragging about her good actions hahaha

I think this is especially why her actions are so sweet and heartwarming, because she’s not the one disclosing the news. And not everybody can be this influential or willing to do all these, so kudos to her!
