The video is not new. IU used to release these videos in early days, which helped her to gain exposure before she became more recognised in mid-2010. She’s now one of the most popular singers in South Korea.

Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh, who’s starring as Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in an upcoming Hollywood film, was deported from Myanmar on June 22 and is barred from entering the country indefinitely.
Officials in Myanmar didn’t explain why the actress is blacklisted, but it’s hard not to relate it with movie The Lady, which tells the story of Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Price laureate who was under house arrest by Myanmar’s military junta for almost 15 of the 21 years before her release in November 2010.
Despite being released, it seems that Suu Kyi’s freedom is still restricted in many ways. The Myanmar’s current military-backed government probably won’t want Michelle Yeoh to act as a spokesperson for Suu Kyi in the country.

Coming from two hugely popular idol groups, this relationship surprisingly didn’t suffer much backslash. Definitely a welcome thing, that the fans are getting more mature.
