    IU has been a hot issue lately, with all her different ideal types, her 3-octave note and of course, her success with her album. Other topic is her appearance in the highly anticipated drama "Dream High." She has already gained much attention because she will be playing a fat, unattractive girl.

    A representative of the drama revealed that making the costume cost 50,000,000 KRW (43561.60 USD) and it costs 2,000,000 KRW (1742.46 USD) and 4-5 hours every time just to put it on, resulting it about 60,000,000 KRW (52273.92 USD) total for the whole drama.

    The only reason the cost is not higher is because IU's character will be going through an intense diet from the beginning of the show, meaning she won't be the "fat girl" for the whole episode.

    Some netizens are wondering if this is too much money spent on one person's costume. What do you think?

    OMG.
    I want to see the whole thing about her being a fat girl and going on a diet!
    I think she goes on a diet for Wooyoung.
    Well, I think it's pretty obvious since she is always the one going close to Wooyoung in 'Dream High' photo shoot.
    HOHOHO. Well, just a guess. ;X

    Watching her slowly "losing weight" will be interesting, she's still going to be as cute as ever!
    But it does seem quite expensive for a costume imo.

    Korean Dramas are quite known for their extravagance when it comes to drama productions... This is why I love korean dramas, you can just see how much effort and investment they put in evry episode just to come out with a very high quality show... They do not hesitate in investing so much as long as it contributes to make the scene more beautifulll anyways I'm so Excited for this drama... just 5 days to go :D IU fighting :D

    LMAO for real? Daaang that sure is a lot of money to be spent on a costume.
    So her character is like that huh. But I'm sure in the middle of the drama, she'll become her normal self whom a lot will be attracted to. Her lovely self is so charming~ <3
    Thanks for sharing!

    woah, thats a lot of $$. seems like the budget for Dream High is really huge but if it pulls up the viewer ratings, why not? haha.

    anyway, its few more days to the first broadcast!
    hope to see the "fat" IU acting! :)
    ~and thanks for sharing!

    That's a lot of money. I'm guessing that diet will be in the first 5 episodes if they don't want to go broke.
