On December 27, the production crew of Hello told Starnews, “IU really loved fresh liver. She ate it throughout the shooting.”
He explained, “We had to kill a cow for IU. After seeing IU eating fresh liver with relish, we could see how much IU loves fresh liver. She ate half of the raw liver throughout the shooting.”
He added, “The audience was surprised to see IU eating raw liver. IU eating liver didn’t go on air that much but she ate a lot longer that what went on air.”
However, Korea Vegetarian Federation demanded an apology from KBS for broadcasting IU eating raw liver.
