1. [+1,800, -249] She actually has a lot more scandals than you think... really quite sly of her with the amount of times she's just brushed it under the rug...

2. [+1,666, -217] As always, sly little IU... she was going to brush it under the rug if people never found it but if people did, "I was just looking for the right timing to tell you ㅠㅠ"

3. [+1,515, -164] I knew they'd go with the "we had no idea" excuse

4. [+179, -9] 'Pureudun' plagiarism suspicion:
'Red Queen' plagiarism suspicion:
'23' plagiarism suspicion:
This is really disappointing as an IU fan

5. [+156, -16] No wonder she lied about wanting take care of her health and not promote on broadcast ㅋㅋ She was probably testing the waters.. if people never found out, she was going to crawl back out. What a little b*tch ㅋㅋㅋ Just retire from the industry

6. [+142, -8] Sounds scary to hear that Britney's going to check it out for herself... well, IU messed with a worldwide star.. hope it's all resolved in the end.

7. [+133, -6] If Sony files a lawsuit, Loen's screwed ㅋㅋㅋ probably Melon too...?

8. [+131, -15] I wish Britney will tear IU to the ground ㅋㅋㅋ Ugh, so sick of her acting like an artist all the time, serves her good

9. [+128, -2] So how did IU use that sample when a sample CD of it was never released?

10. [+106, -6] She's embarrassing our country

1. [+16,000, -4,702] She's had many more plagiarism controversies too ㅋㅋㅋ She's no artist... is using someone else's creation without permission and hoping not to get caught an artist now? She's no different from Yoon Eun Hye's scandal

2. [+14,081, -3,358] Well that's the end of her cosplaying around as an artist

3. [+11,529, -2,362] Her stupid fans' logic: Our IU is not an idol but a singer songwriter artist!!!! Your idols can't do what she can!!!!
But when she gets into a plagiarism controversy, their logic turns into: Our IU only sang a song that someone else wrote for her ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Blame the composer, IU is not at fault ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
You guys do realize it's not fair to call her a singer songwriter when it fits her when she's really just an idol who sings a song written by someone else just like any other idol?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+11,820, -3,120] Farewell, IU-ssi...

5. [+9,300, -2,488] Bye-U~

6. [+4,088, -248] I wonder if IU will be able to survive this controversy too...? She survived the Eunhyuk scandal... the 'Red Shoes' scandal was quietly buried under the rug... and everyone mostly congratulated her during her Jang Giha news... how will it go this time?

7. [+4,168, -397] Park Myung Soo's curse is coming up true ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Anyone who works with Park Myung Soo for the Infinity Challenge Festival ends up getting into a scandal

8. [+3,415, -147] IU put her name on the line for this album. The artist herself should be out clarifying what's going on and making amends.

9. [+3,344, -171] All those times IU media played about being an artist is coming back to bite her

10. [+3,135, -156] Sigh, Britney Spears' voice can be heard right there in the song. IU's had so many plagiarism controversies but they've all been buried ㅋㅋㅋ She media played so much about this album saying she produced all of it but as it turns out, she only composed a few of the songs and fans are now arguing that she only wrote the lyrics ㅋㅋㅋ

11. [+2,466, -147] So enough with the artist media play now

12. [+1,640, -49] I'm more shocked about 'Red Shoes' being buried than this...

13. [+1,635, -49] If you listen to the original 'Red Shoes' song, it's even more shocking ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ everything's the same minus the highlight ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

14. [+1,407, -65] I love how IU started cosplaying as an artist when she started off singing crappy songs like 'Marshmallow' but as soon as she hit fame, she went around with her guitar pretending to be an artist ㅋㅋㅋ

15. [+1,292, -62] Also look up 'Leon' plagiarism on YouTube, it's daebak.

16. [+1,255, -37] Media played so hard about producing the entire album all by herself but now that there's a problem, she's completely out of the picture ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

17. [+1,218, -36] If you look at all of her media play articles, she states over and over that she produced the entire album from composing and writing everything. But you look at the credits and all of her compositions and lyrics were co-composed with other composers. She barely has any songs she composed by herself and yet she went around cosplaying as an artist. With all of the media play she did about producing the entire album by herself, I don't think she can get off scot free this time. I wish Britney's reps would sue her.

18. [+1,227, -48] Ironic how IU stated in her lyrics that she can act however she wanted and people would still love her and yet look at her now. If Britney's reps do choose to sue her for this, we likely won't be seeing IU on broadcast for a while, especially with all that cosplaying she did pretending to be an artist and denying that she's an idol. You reap what you sow.

19. [+1,169, -30] I find it hilarious that IU was ever even considered an artist or a singer songwriter when all of the songs that got her to fame like 'Good Day' and 'You and I' were written by other people ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ and here's her album that she claimed was produced by herself and it gets into a plagiarism controversy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

20. [+1,069, -37] Singer songwriter? Musician? Artist? Laughable. All just a made up image through media play.
