South Korean singer/actress IU is a hair chameleon. Here are all the looks she has rocked so far!

Lee Ji-eun, better known as IU, has been making her mark in South Korean showbiz and beyond ever since she was 15. Now at 26, the angel-faced singer/songwriter/actress shows no sign of slowing down, with an exciting lineup of projects ahead.

Apart from being one of South Korea's chart-topping singers, she is also known for her roles in K-Drama hits like 'The Producers', 'Persona', 'Hotel del Luna', and a host of films too. The pretty young thing even sang a song in K-Drama hit 'Crash Landing on You's original soundtrack called "Give You My Heart." 

Apart from our favorite Son Ye-jin being nominated for Best Actress at the 56th Baeksang Art Awards, IU presents some competition for Crash Landing on You's Yoon Se-ri, as she is also nominated in the same category, for her role as Jang Man-wol in romantic comedy 'Hotel del Luna'.
