IU was seen attending the event like many other celebrities. One of her interactions with Thai actress Davike Hoorne went viral among fans and here's why. IU shared, " Davika who’s next to me here is a very outgoing person. And she’s the It Girl too, isn’t she?”, she further added, “She approached me first and said, ‘You and I have the same birthday’. So we bond through that. That day was my birthday. Since we both had our birthday, we told each other ‘Happy Birthday!’. Suddenly she tilted slightly towards me. I was not sure if she was going for a kiss” 


She added, “It was so dark and so loud. I wasn’t sure what kind of gesture I should do in that moment. I feel like I’ve seen this in a Western drama”, IU continued, “So I thought, so I have to kiss..? I made that decision in an instant. If you look at me here, for a good 0.1 second, my pupils were shaking. You probably can see it. I went, ‘Do I have to give a kiss?’. If it wasn’t what she meant, I could have been rude if I misunderstood her.” IU concluded by saying, “But anyway, Davika responded cheerfully. It was the first time for me as well. So with that, Davika and I gained a special and interesting bond with each other”
