IU Again Makes It Big on Weekly Charts and Music Shows
And once again, the adorable IU is taking over the scene with her chart-topping songs and quality performances.
Starting with her first performance on December 2 in KBS2’s Music Bank, IU started off on her official promotions.
Onstage, IU drew out the story contained in You and I of a girl travelling through time with her ‘Tick Tock Dance’, in which she uses her fingers to express the hands on a clock, and a cute ‘Cuddle Me Dance’, in which she holds out her arms and opens and closes her hands...we′re not sure if you can call this a "dance" though.
She also sang the tracks Uncle and Child Searching for a Star to grab her fans’ attention with her different charms.
For the performance of Uncle, which took place on Music Bank, announcer Jun Hyun Moo appeared onstage to the surprise of many fans, and on the December 3 performance of Child Searching for a Star for SBS’ Inkigayo, composer Kim Kwang Jin appeared for the first time in nine years to help out IU. IU also didn’t let her fans down with her perfect vocals.
She was showered with praise for her quality performances, and she again proved her status among music fans by topping weekly charts in main online music websites.
The weekly charts not only showed her first single cut You and I on the top ranks, but also many other tracks from her studio album in the top 10. As such, IU is being evaluated as a unique female singer who has succeeded in displaying both quality music and a sense of popularity with this album.
IU told enews on December 5, “I’m so happy to be able to stand onstage in front of my fans for the first time in a long time. I thank everyone who supported me, and I’ll become even better in the future in many different ways.”
IU will be continuing her promotion with appearances on music programs, variety shows and radio shows.
