    IU revealed her thoughts as a cast member of SBS ‘Good Sunday-Heroes.’

    In a phone interview with SBS on the 15th, IU answered all questions about her involvement with ‘Heroes’ with a cheerful voice.

    When asked “For ‘Heroes,’ you have to film on location for two days. Isn’t this difficult?”, IU answered “Of course shooting on location is hard. But other than not getting any sleep, it’s so much fun. It’s hard because we only get about 2-3 hours of sleep, but now that we all get along so well, it’s a wonderful atmosphere.”

    When asked which member she was closest to, IU stated “we’re all so close and we all look out for one another. I get along well with Yoo Inna because we have a lot in common. Shin Bongsun and Jiyeon look after me as well.” She further added “all the members monitor each others’ performances and give advice. Bongsun-unni always encourages me by saying ‘All you need to do is try your best’.”

    IU was cast on ‘Heroes’ long before she came the ‘hot trend’ she is today. IU expressed “I’ve been having so much more fun getting close to all the ‘Heroes’ unnies,” and “Thanks to ‘Heroes,’ I now know that TV appearances can be fun. I’m also grateful that the program has given me such confidence.”

    Lastly, IU ended with “I’m thankful for the fans who tune in to watch us every Sunday. The show is a story about female celebrities who have no pretense about them. We’ll continue to show our energetic selves, so please continue to support our ‘Heroes’.”

    T.T She is not getting enough sleep and yet she is always so energetic on Heros. That is so touching.
    My goodness, I'm really never going to stop loving Heroes. That is one of my fave variety show in Korea.
    I just love how they support and encourage each other.

    I'm glad she enjoys Heroes even with the lack of sleep.
    I started off watching it cause of IU but I've grown to love them all.
    Every time the subs are out, I'm watching it in the evening on my own, literally laughing out load! My family probably think I've gone crazy.. but I don't care xD
    Thanks so much for translating this!

    Terrible that she's sleeping so little. Especially with a hectic schedule like hers, she should be getting so much more each night. At least she's enjoying it ^^. I've seen a bit of heroes and she seems to have so much fun with the other cast members. Can't wait for the subs to come out.

    Thanks for translating.

    I started watching the show out of curiosity and that's how I came to know about IU. I keep watching every episode even tough I don't understand the language but the interactions between the members are so fun that sometimes words are not necessary to make me laugh nonstop.

    Thanks for translating the article.

    I'm glad she's having fun ^^ but..
    2-3 hours sleep is really not enough D:
    At least 6 hours sleep is ok!
    IU please get some rest~ I don't want any problems being caused!
    And stay healthy!~
    Thank you so much for translating and posting <333333333333333

    Glad she's having fun and making new friends ^^
    But she also needs more sleep! It's important for her health.

    Just like a baby needs a naptime XD

    2- 3 hours is not considered as 'sleep', it's only a long nap x_x
    but that's how shooting is because they have to packed everything into 1 -2 days
    since IU is so enjoying it, i won't say much about her hectic schedule ^^;;

    I hate hearing when people get little sleep.
    But I guess it's ok since she's having fun?
    Hope she's ok and continues to have lots of fun.

    She is only 17 and she can only sleep for 2-3 hours per day T_T Its good to hear that she is optimistic about that and getting well with her unnies :) Thanks for the translation!

    One of the reasons that I love watching Heroes is due to the close bond that the cast shares. I'm glad that the bond is real as IU gets along well with her unnies. It's sad that she only has 2-3 hours of sleep each day, but it's good that her unnies are there to take care of her.
