    'The nation's little sister' IU is hooked on figure skating practice.

    A spokesperson from IU's agency met with reporters on the 4th and expressed, "IU can't set aside specific times to practice, but whenever she can find spare time between her schedules, she is really practising hard."

    On May 3rd, IU, together with other celebrities, had their first profile shoot for the SBS Program, "Kim Yuna's Kiss and Cry". Currently undergoing intensive training in ice skating, they are now able to put on their skates and adopt natural poses and give mature impressions. In particular, on this day, IU put on her skates and adopted a relaxed pose while balancing on one foot.

    The production crew also revealed, "Initially, IU absolutely could not iceskate, but now her skill has improved so much that she can even balance on one foot." They also added, "She herself is putting in a considerable amount of effort and making quick progress as a result."

    It was previously revealed that Kim Yuna, being a fan of IU, also recommended her for the show. According to the PD of the program, Kim Yuna enjoys listening to and singing IU's songs. On an episode of the SBS program 'Kim Jung Eun's Chocolate' broadcasted last year, when Kim Yuna appeared on the show, she sang IU's "Riding on a Train" and considers herself to be an 'IU fan'.

    During the shoot on May 3rd, Kim Yuna and IU met for the first time as mentor and mentee. On this day, one of the studios at the Ilsan SBS Production Centre was remodelled into a skating rink to record interviews with the members on the show. It is also rumoured that Kim Yuna showcased her vocal skills by singing IU's "Riding on a Train" again during their first meeting, which lightened the mood during filming. The production crew stated, "Although it was their first meeting, it felt like they had known each other for a long time. There was no awkwardness at all as and filming went smoothly" and "Kim Yuna was quite satisfied with what she saw of the skills everyone had mastered so far."

    Aww so glad to hear that IU enjoys this, it will for sure make it easier for her to take up figure skating. And her progress is good, cause balancing on one foot isn't easy (especially not if you're a beginner).

    YunAiyu sounds funny lol, but yes a duet would be nice. Kim Yuna is a good singer (and she's duet with Taeyeon before so its very possible :))

    Thanks squishy

    shes probably been working really really hard because ice skating is not easy at all. i can barely hold my own on two feet and she already learned how to balance on one foot XD impressive ^___^ especially because shes a beginner ;p
