Is IU starting to lose her popularity?

Some netizens think IU’s popularity is decreasing as her new song failed to maintain its top spot on music charts

A netizen made a post titled, “Even IU’s popularity is starting to decrease” in Nate Pann, drawing keen attention.

Adding a screenshot of BIBI’s “Bam Yang Gang” surpassing IU’s “Love wins all” on a music chart, the netizen said, “The popularity and chart performance of her song are not as good as before. It’s even falling behind BIBI’s ‘Bam Yang Gang’”.


They added, “Of course, IU is still the No.1 solo female singer, but it’s true that she’s losing popularity. IU’s main charm is sexy, but she’s in her 30s now. Her voice has become more husky and the lyrics of the new song are aggressive and girl crush, making her sexiness unable to stand out. However, she’s been enjoying her heyday for nearly 15 years. That’s actually amazing”.

In response, other netizens commented:

– BIBI suddenly rose to fame this time, but charting high with every new song release is something different. That can happen to any singer

– IU is not as popular as before → Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium 360-degree Stage selling out all seats for 4 days

– ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ah she’s no longer popular so she sold out 4 days of Gymnastic Stadium concert during the pre-sale period. Are you living in Korea? Foreigners and Korean fans are mad about getting a ticket to IU’s concertㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

– Even if her popularity decreases, IU is still a top singer in Korea. She just needs to hold a concert, and tickets are all sold out

– That doesn’t mean IU couldn’t win first placeㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ IU won No.1 with this song and all kill all the music shows. Not many singers can still do well with every song they release after being active for such a long time as IU does
