BTS‘s J-Hope and IU are everyone’s new favorite duo, thanks to IU’s Palette.
For this YouTube talk show, host IU invites fellow celebrities to chat about their work and duet with her.
Recently, J-Hope threw his first-ever listening party for his new solo album Jack In The Box. The party was a way for the rapper to network and showcase his solo work.
So one of my new challenges has been to host a Listening Party. The reason I decided to is to let people know what kind of musician I am and maybe hand around my name-card.
IU joked about not being invited to the party, but she had nothing but good things to say about J-Hope.

Although IU and J-Hope have met briefly at events, such as award shows, they have never had a sit-down conversation until now. As such, IU did some research on the rapper. She asked people who know J-Hope, “What kind of person is J-Hope?”
“When I asked this question,” IU told him. “they all told me you were a kind person, and I thought, ‘How kind must he be?’ But now, just by talking to you briefly, I can feel it.”
When IU complimented J-Hope’s modesty, he lit up like a Christmas tree!
Throughout the episode, IU’s praise brought out J-Hope’s introverted, shy side, but IU made one thing perfectly clear…
She’s just spitting facts!
