I edited my first post with lots of video goodness and my recommendations. Of course my recommendations might not suit everyones tastes because I love everything. ;D

IU is very good when she's singing slow songs, but she's so damn cute when she does the fast upbeat stuff so it's a toss up if you like her slow stuff or her fast stuff. She's very versatile, though I can see her career heading into mainly ballads when she's older because she's not the best of dancers.

I love her, but from what I've seen of the fans (at least the Western ones), they're pretty crazy. I try to just avoid them.

I really liked "Lost&Found", the first album she did best, but they're honestly all very enjoyable. She does a really good job doing covers and plays guitar quite well, and sings live really well too, so it's worth checking out Youtube for that stuff. She was on Music Travel LaLaLa as well. Definitely one of my favorite new artists (well, "new", she debuted in 2008, but that's pretty new for me).

And she's the new host of Chin Chin!

OK FINE posting a video: IU & Cheondung/Thunder (MBLAQ) -- Lies. So cute together!

OK one more cause IU covering Brian is kewl.

I wish I knew, but I know if I had the cash to throw down I'd buy that pimped out set in an instant. The extras list made me weep.

“Her upcoming mini-album, ‘REAL,’ will be produced in two versions including normal and special edition. ... The special edition also includes a variety of special items such as a 40 page special photo book, calendar, and post-its.”

:D

I wouldn't know about anything like that, but here's some stuff I looked at recently that had IU in 'em:

super secret upload! IU doesn't actually do all that much in this, until she starts singing about 8 minutes in. She sure looks cute though. The hosts are quite funny so you might want to watch what goes before, but probably not.

Raindrops. I think she sounds a bit rough here, but the Lulu-style hair really looks great.

EDIT: Ok not sure how long this will be up, but here are youtubes for the album:
01 - 이게 아닌데
02 - 느리게 하는 일
03 - 좋은 날
04 - 혼자 있는 방
05 - 미리 메리크리스마스 (Feat. Thunder of MBLAQ)

I think she looks super pretty with long hair. D:

IU has released an addition to REAL with 3 extra tracks.

One of which is TOTALLY AMAZING. GO LISTEN NOW.

Also enjoy this new MV for The Story Only I Didn't Know.

What are wrong with her legs in that picture? :whatthe:

Anyway, these are awesome songs. The title track's ending is really eerie, and quieting as it just sorta stops but it doesn't work very well once you add it to your music list since it just sorta jumps to the next song on my iTunes so it's like woah.


And the MV makes the title song that much more sad. :cryalot:


In other news, I updated the top post with more IU goodness.

Here's a video of her talking and playing on the street with a band for a little bit. It's cute, though I would've liked to see more of the concert. Korean tv is very cock-teasy like that.

Well, that tiny bit of coreography was very Midnight Circus-esque, which is fun since IU was in Midnight Circus's teaser. :lol:

Furthermore, high hopes because it's IU and IU is awesome.

I've never heard of their agency before, but maybe they're going the UFA route.
You know, recycling sets and costumes with just enough changes to call them "new"...

Can anyone explain to me the dynamics between LOEN Entertainment and other companies, specifically Nega Network? I ask because I was under the impression IU, Brown Eyed Girls and Sunny Hill were all under the same agency, since they cross over a lot as other artists would within their agencies. I understand that LOEN distributes Nega Network, but according to Wikipedia they also distribute Cube, Pledis, and JYP. Wonder girls and 4minute aren't exactly parading through Sunny Hill teasers, so I was just curious. [/offtopic]

If they are recycling things that are as good as the last few IU and Sunny Hill releases have been, I honestly have no problems. I feel like BEG are in this "similar style" group too (especially since Midnight Circus was a BEG song originally or something).

All 3 artists' recent releases have been well-produced, solid musically, and packed with atmosphere. Feel free to keep it up, LOEN, I'm cool with you re-using a backdrop now and again. :lol:

I listened to like 10 of her most popular songs on YouTube and they were all boring as hell, as is she, as a personality. I don't get it. At least some of the SNSD members have a shitload of personality, but this girl is boring as all hell, yet everyone freaks the hell out over her. She even has wotas.

That's unexpected.
The stuff I heard from her reminded me a lot from the A Pink stuff.
It's the same somewhat soothing ("boring" at times) music imho.
Or at least similar.
