IU explained, "It's a moment I've regretted a lot. Even when I look back at it, I look like an idiot. It's really hectic and a large camera zooms in on you. So I didn't know what expression to have, it was a mistake." 

Furthermore, IU then shared that it was almost instinctive for her due to her idol training. Though the idol revealed she was embarrassed about her aegyo moment. Even she realized how viral her aegyo became due to the memes.


"Because I am an idol, I was taught not to have a 'blank take,' so I attempted a heart. As soon as I did it, I remember being embarrassed. Of course, the fans have made many memes out of the moment," IU adorably expressed.
