IU mentioned that her mother had a strong influence on her continuous good deeds.
On May 27th, IU talked with several media outlets at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, which was hosted at Le Majestic in Cannes, France.
On this day, IU was asked what motivates her to donate to those in need. Because IU has a positive influence by donating large quantities of money to neighbors in need.
Regarding this, IU stated that it was due of her mother, who advised her to give when she was young.
“When I was young, my mum advised me to help others if I had anything to do,” she explained, “and at the time, I was young and thought, ‘Do I have to donate?’ I learnt how to donate through my mom, and I try to act like my mom,” she said, explaining why she helps people in need.
IU, who began sharing by donating the revenues of her first fan meetup, has regularly donated “4 billion won” to the present by donating to the low-income and socially poor.
IU recently took the lead in charitable giving by donating 100 million won and 210 million won on Children’s Day and her birthday, respectively.
Compliments are pouring in for IU, who not only has beauty and skills, but also a kind heart and a desire to spread positive influence.
IU stated that while filming “Broker,” she noticed an increase in interest in single mothers who are socially disadvantaged.
“I thought to myself that I was the only one who thought it was difficult,“ IU remarked. “Perhaps there is still a bias towards single mothers; they’re incredibly brave individuals, and I dare to think that it would be good to have a family in various forms.”
Meanwhile, IU is gearing up for the June 8th release of Hirokazu Koreeda‘s film “Broker.“
“Broker” is a film that depicts the surprising and unique path of those who have a connection centered on a baby box.
IU, who plays a single mother named So Yeong in the film, recently visited the 75th Cannes Film Festival and received a lot of attention.
