I have a weird and completely unexpected soft spot for IU. Her music and persona are definitely not a style that I tend to fall for. I’ve historically filed her under the ‘talented but not my thing’ category in my brain and moved on. But when she appeared on Infinity Challenge and was all goo goo over Hyukoh, I had to take a second look. She seemed to have good and interesting taste and therefore maybe there was something else in there for me to get attached to. AND THERE IS.
