    For a long period of time, Go Yoon Hoo (Running, Queen Seon Deok, East of Eden) was acting and doing a part-time job at the same time. In the midst of that, he was also a teacher at a private acting school. Upon graduating from university in 2007, he taught his juniors at the acting school and among his students, some are now celebrities who are thriving in the entertainment industry. An example would be today's trend, IU.

    "She's a friend of mine who acted really well. However, I was surprised when she became a singer. She's really diligent and did well, so of course she would do well in singing too. During classes, she would occasionally sing for the other students and lead the atmosphere in class."

    He only met her again during the 'Queen Seon Deok' OST concert, as he was starring in that drama. IU was attending the concert as a guest performer. "From somewhere far away, I heard someone call out 'teacher' and turned around to see IU. I wondered why she debuted as a singer, not an actress, but since she likes singing, for now she would continue singing. I advised her to do acting, since she did so well before. I'm glad she appeared on 'Dream High' this time."

    IU is a great actress, I enjoyed seeing her in Dream High!
    Made me smile every time she appeared :D
    I do hope she pursues acting later on, she clearly has the ability there!

    Thanks for the translation.
    Ah....This is why IU delivered well/did a great job on Dream High. Now, I know the reason why.
    She showed exemplary acting skills on evry episode she's in.
    At first, I didn't come to think of it. All I know is that she's a singer, none other than that until dream high was shown.

    I'm looking forward to her acting career in the future.
    IU jjang.

    WOW! That was a good experience before she acted out in Dream High.
    I guess that really helped out a lot. She really acted well! XD
    Man, I am so looking forward to her future dramas now.

    Thanks for translating! (;

    wow, so IU is really good in acting since her teacher said so...
    before this, IU said she wanted to be an actress at first, but turned out being a singer..
    Go Yoon Hoo said he was shocked when he knows IU debuted as a singer and not an actress...
    i will be shock too if i was her teacher cause she is so good in acting..
    sounds like IU is almost perfect...
