IU surprised everyone by undergoing a drastic transformation and teamed up with veteran idol Ga In from Brown Eyed Girls for a seductive set of jacket photos, but at her press conference, she shared her thoughts on Ga-In’s great work as compared to her own.
At her the press conference for her third full album, “Modern Times” that is said to deliver a matured, improved musical ability, she talked about her disappointment in her own work.
IU said earnestly, “We did the recording, took the jacket photos [for ‘Everybody Has Secrets‘], and shot the teaser together. As Ga In is used to posing sexily, I knew I wouldn’t stand out as much. But as it is my album, I still tried to shine even if I was next to her. However, I feel like I totally lost the battle.”
She added, “It was disappointing, but I learned a lot from Ga In. Now, I know how to set the atmosphere and speak with my eyes. We formed a friendly bond between us thanks to working together. Even though we didn’t manage to become too close, I really came to admire her.”
IU’s third album includes a variety of swing, latin pop, and jazz, and she also composed two of the songs, writing four, and despite her different image, she still topped music charts and showed how influential her music is.
