    Big Bang’s Seungri is receiving a lot of attention for his witty apology to IU’s uncle fans.

    Seungri uploaded onto his me2DAY on the 13th the following message: “You are like water for my parched self… and so, I’m happy – part of Seungri 1st MiniAlbum [VVip] 5th track duet I know with IU.” Seungri was promoting his duet ‘I Know’ which he sang with IU for his upcoming first solo mini album which will be release on the 20th.

    Another eye-catching part of his me2day update was the tag that Seungri himself uploaded. On this tag, he attached ‘To IU’s uncle fans, I’m sorry Please understand She’s all the rage’ and extended his apologies to all the uncle fans who care so much for IU.

    Further, he caused much laughter amongst fans when he attached another tag “Her ideal type Taeyang, Seungri just a regular oppa.”

    IU’s duets with 2AM Im Seulong for ‘Nagging’, and Sung Si Kyung for ‘It’s You’ received top positions on the music charts, and she’s become the most requested female singer for duets so far.

    A YG representative revealed their thoughts on IU’s duet with Seungri by stating “Over 3 years ago, before IU’s debut, she had a chance encounter with Big Bang. It was an opportunity for her to get acquainted with all the members, and in particular, Seungri suggested to IU ‘After you debut, let’s be sure to sing a duet together’,” and “Currently IU is receiving a flood of proposals for duets, and for her to agree to sing with Seungri means that she’s kept her promise.”

    The representative further explained that “It’s not a harmony between husky and sweet voices, it’s a song that is refreshing to hear and is instead, a blend of two sweet voices coming together to create a new type of harmony. They are both of similar age and so were able to complete the recording in a comfortable manner.”

    LMAO. Seungri is so cute! :)
    I guess after the male celebrities after Seulong are starting to fear the strength of IU's uncle fans.

    its a funny thing that YG is saying that Seungri have known IU even before her debut and Seungri ASKED her to sing with him. heres the irony. YG didnt accept wen IU tried out for YG(not sure if she has buhh) and now they r trying to link them two to grab media's attention. its like. a cat picked on a turtle and the turtle later becomes TMNT rofl

    I so loled at this “Her ideal type Taeyang, Seungri just a regular oppa.” sure have all the daggers at taeyang hehe... so dorky can't wait to hear the song so excited!!

    hmm... did she really auditioned for YG? I thought she auditioned for JYP, got eliminated, and that news made headlines few weeks ago? If we talk about who is using who, I'm sure alot of companies want a piece of our lovely IU. JYP casted her into Dream High, when he eliminated her on broadcasted audition. If a few of us keep saying that the make idols are using her for popularity, I think a fan war will occur. Let's just be civil about this. Let's not think too deeply into who is taking advantage of IU since this can benefit her in some way. At least for us fans, we got a new IU song to listen to :D

    PS: Forte I'm not picking on you, just saying this because I've been seeing comments like this recently from various people, and I don't want IU to have more antis right now...
