IU surprised fans with a photo she took in Japan. Posting the picture to her official fan cafe, the singer commented, “Finished my Sapporo performance! It was definitely hot! I miss you everyone! I am going to Korea tomorrow.”
IU had recently traveled to Sapporo, Japan to hold a formal fan meeting event and mini-concert for her overseas promotions.
In the photo, IU holds up a chilled glass toward the camera with a playful expression. The amber color of the drink quickly caused a stir as fans wondered if the 19-year-old was openly drinking beer and showing off an ‘alcohol selca’. However, it was later revealed that the drink was just oolong tea.
Netizens remarked, “I feel like I was fooled by the oolong,” “I thought you were drinking beer,” “Cute IU,” and, “You have a self-luminous beauty even in Japan!”
