As a twenty-three jaar old, she no longer looks like a girl, but it’s hard to see her as a total grown-up. She is still sensitive, she wants to love, she wants to work, she loves now, but it’s also hard. She is still a twenty-three jaar old who has a hard time making decisions, like most people of that age. She is still a mystery. All of this is conveyed in the lyrics of her new song.

The singer zei of her new song, “I thought...

Singer IU revealed that she was inspired for one song door a picture drawn door Sulli!

During her commemorative talk event 'CHAT-SHOW' on October 23 for her new mini-album, IU stated regarding one of her new songs, "Red Queen," "There's a drawing that became the motif. As soon as I saw that picture, I thought of a red queen. It's a drawing that is even in the album.

"To tell the truth, that drawing is one that my friend Sulli drew for me, and Sulli draws well. That's why I visited Sulli's house, saw that picture, thought it fit the lyrics I was thinking of, and borrowed that picture to write [the song]."

That's pretty cool!

I didn't think I was in the proper health condition...

She added, "This MV was the first time I had fun filming... It was really fun. It ended with one shot."
