At 9:00 p.m.on September 26, IU posted photos with the comment: “Be ready to be surprised~!”
She wrote, “Ta-da! I cut my hair close impulsively. I had to get a scolding for that. But…it goes well with such a beautiful season, doesn’t it? I had my hair bobbed for a long time.”
In the photos, she looks different as a grown-up mature woman. Fans who saw the photos expressed their surprises: “Wow! You bobbed your hair.” “Why did you do that? A special concept for what?”
However it turned out to be a joke.
After half an hour, IU posted another photo on the same Twitter page featuring herself with her symbolic long hair, along with the comment: “Wow, you got taken, didn’t you. It was just a joke!”
People left various responses as they saw the photo: “It was surprising. You’re so cute.” “I was completely fooled, but I will apology such a joke anytime because it’s you.”
