    Singer IU expressed her thoughts regarding the negative comments made by some netizens after her first performance.

    On the episode of 'Kiss and Cry', which was broadcasted on June 12th, IU revealed that after her first performance, she received criticisms and negative comments such as, "she's not trying hard enough" and that she felt distressed since there were many people who viewed her unfavourably.

    Also, she said, "Even though there were many remarks about me not trying hard, that wasn't true" and that "comments about how I probably can't make it would only increase, surely I had to leave everyone with a good impression after my next performance" and she was determined to do just that in future.

    To prove that she was true to her word, IU showed fantastic teamwork with her partner, Choi In Hwa, by performing the spiral and other difficult stunts as well, and received positive feedback from the judges.

    Kim Yuna commented, "Compared to when I was judging your performance a week ago, you have shown a great improvement. Thank you for the hard work." IU then said, "I feel so good", looking slightly like she was about to cry, for her feelings of happiness made up for all that she has been through thus far.

    Meanwhile, IU and her partner received the high score of 32.6 for their performance on "Kiss and Cry" on this broadcast.

    She was great, I'm sooo impressed :D

    By the way, she was really having fun while doing that show. It's obvious she trusts herself in that performance.

    I bet most of the people that were so harsh on her after her first performance are the ones that are now accepting other participants' argument of lack of time to practice because of a busy schedule (a valid excuse in my eyes). An argument that of course they did not want to accept in IU's case, neither the fact that she is not half as athletic as some of the other participants thus it's harder for her to do ice skating.
    Anyway, It is better having a weak start and progressively improve that the other way around. IU fighting!

    she's improved SO much since the first episode though, I'm proud of her C': hopefully people will realize all the work that everyone on the show puts into this.

    IU's a hard worker and regardless of how it turned out, I'm sure she put in as much effort as she could. I'm so glad she moved out of the final place. Hopefully she'll keep rising and won't have to leave the show too early. Thanks for translating.

    Great peoples show their talant by acting, not speaking. Good job IU~
    honestly i think she has to leave that show and securing her time because she has too many schedules and dosent have much time to preparing her next album and training her music skills.
    but watching she gets better and better by improving herself motivates me.. i think i have to learn that mind..

    p.s:i wish someone corrects my errors.. =p

    That's why I love her. She may not always gain success the first time round, but because she tries and puts in effort, she will succeed ther next time. Ji Eun unnie, you are truly inspiring. Even though you have a crazy schedule, you still put in effort to excel in whatever programme you're on. <3

    Netizens can now back off cause they got nothing on this wonderful girl :)

    I'm so proud of you unnie! :D

    Congrats IU-unnie, you already showed your best! <3

    Nitizen's comment is really mean :| IU-unnie rarely play skating, so she won't have perfect perfomance for the first time. But, i'm proud of you unnie :D Unnie really improved a lot since the last perfomance, i hope that unnie keep stay at this phase :)

    KEEP FIGHTING IU-UNNIE XD

    Thanks for translating! :D
