While IU has been a Korean ambassador for the Italian luxury brand since 2020, this is the first time Gucci has referred to the star as their global ambassador. However, a representative of Gucci shared, “Due to competition with another brand, it’s difficult to reveal exactly when IU signed a contract as a global ambassador.”
IU is now the fourth Korean star to be named as a global brand ambassador for Gucci, following EXO‘s Kai, Shin Min Ah, and Lee Jung Jae.
IU recently attended the 75th Cannes Film Festival in France where her film “Broker” was nominated for the Palme d’Or. “Broker” will hit theaters on June 8 and you check out the trailer here!
