South Korean songstress iu returned Wednesday (Oct. 10) with a new single to commemorate her 10th ano in the industry. “Bbibbi” is a groovy alt-R&B track that frolics along with a deadpan message aimed at haters who have invaded her life with their negative commentary.

The segment began with Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon complimenting iu for working so hard, "If iu wasn't here, I think it would've been so hard and difficult.

Lee Sang Soon followed, "She must be really tired too...she must be a little tense and nervous as well especially with the large age difference between her and us."

He continued while laughing, "She told me the last time she saw you was when you were promoting "Bad Girls" and that she was scared of you at the time because of the image. She didn't know you were like this." Lee Hyori replied, "I didn't know she was like this either. I thought she would be distant and reserved to herself but she feels like a neighborhood little sister. She's like a seguinte door little sister who is very nice and genuine."

Although Yoo Hee Yeol of Antenna música has worked with iu numerous times, he won’t sign her to his label.

On KBS’s “Happy Together 3”, he revealed that he won’t ever sign her because his label just can’t afford her!

Antenna Music’s artist Jung Jae Hyung revealed that there’s just no way for them to gather enough funds.

“Even if we sell our whole office building, we won’t have enough.”

— Jung Jae Hyung

But that doesn’t mean Yoo Hee Yeol is totally against the idea!

“If iu has any thought of moving to our label, I will change our company name to IU!”

— Yoo Hee Yeol

It seems unlikely that iu will be listed under Antenna música anytime soon.

iu has a hard time making friends or keeping friends because of her famous celebrity status.

She revealed on JTBC’s Hyori’s cama and Breakfast that she only has two friends from her middle school days.

“I have two friends from middle school, but I’m not comfortable enough to go traveling with them.”

— IU

Lee Hyori agreed that she wished she could have a regular close friendship like everyone else.

“I want a very drunk friend to call me at 2 in the morning, saying ‘Come pick me up’. But I can’t do that.”

— Lee Hyori

It’s difficult for them, because friends can’t see them without the veil of a superstar celebrity.

Celebrities also have to watch where they go, what they do and will always have restrictions that a normal friend wouldn’t.

Thankfully, iu was able to get close with the girls who came to stay at Lee Hyori’s house!

“I wish you guys can stay for a longer time. I have a hard time opening up to people, but you were so comfortable.”

Stephanie chimed in, "There is a rumor that iu earned the 'Nation's Little Sister' título after meeting a ghost in the studio. During the time she was recording for 'You and I,' she saw her manager go into the studio so she followed suit but there was no one there."

Choi Yeo Jin asked, "Then who was it that [IU] saw go into the studio?" Stephanie answered, "IU thinks that she saw a ghost, and she revealed later that her manager was elsewhere. But after she saw the specter, 'You and I' became a huge hit, and iu made her place in the entertainment world as 'Nation's Little Sister.'"
