Posted: 09 Aug 2014 05:01 PM PDT


IU revealed some of the interesting things about woman on KBS' talk show 'I'm A Man'.

During the broadcast of the show on August 8th, an audience asked,"I'm a student major in dance. I was surprised when I saw so many girls of my juniors having hairy armpit while wearing ballet costumes. What should I do in this situation?".

IU responded to this problem,"Just pretend like you didn't see them","Girls also know it themselves, but there are too much[armpit hair] for them to care about".

Then Jang Dong Min said,"Even so should you need to tell them about it?","Since saying it directly to them must be embarrassing, and also Tang Wei exposed her armpit hair in a movie before so we can say something like "Wow~ Tang Wei" to them, so they won't be shy about it", which made IU praise,"This solution is good".

IU also surprised everyone on the set by saying women only wash their bangs when they suddenly have to go outside. Jang Dong Min then said,"Then women don't know that since the bangs are only above their noses so I don't think they can't smell them", caused everyone laughed with his statement.
