IU explains why she gave up entering University

On July 7, IU appeared as guests on SBS's talkshow "Healing camp" with singer Kim Chang Wan and Akdong Musician to talk about music and personal lives.

After hearing Kim Chang Wan's story of entering Seoul university when he was only 17, MC Lee Kyung Kyu asked IU about the reason why she did not enter university. Then IU replied, "I thought high school will be my last school as I didn't like school. In addition, I was working as a singer then, so I wanted to focus on it. Kim Chang Wan said entering Seoul university was easy, but no university can accept my score, so I just gave up." Her answer amazed everyone. 

Then Kim Chang Wan encouraged IU, "You did a good thing. You don't have to go to university to gain title".
