In a recent episode of tvN‘s ‘On and Off‘, IU visited T-ara Jiyeon‘s house, and there was a moment in the episode that brought many to tears. IU and Jiyeon have been friends for over a decade and have stuck with each other during difficult times, and this was highlighted in the episode.

In the episode, IU talked about how when they were younger, she thought of Jiyeon more as a little sister, as she was constantly taking care of her.

However, this changed after one incident.

IU was once having a tough time in her career and decided to deal with it alone.
