The first verse of IU′s Good Day music video was released to the public on February 29 through various online websites in preparation for her official Japanese debut on March 21.

IU Eyes Japan Music Scene with ′Good Day′

In the music video, IU′s fluent Japanese brought out a different flavor to the same Korean lyrics that so many people fell in love with. She also kept the Korean word ‘oppa’ in the Japanese version for the phrase, "I like you, oppa," which moved the hearts of many Korean males in the Korean version.

There were, however, some slight changes made to the song. In the Korean version of Good Day, a girl is seen pouring her heart out after getting dumped by a boyfriend that she really liked. In the Japanese version, a girl can be seen thinking about confessing her feelings to an oppa.

Those who have seen the music video asked, "Will the full version come out tomorrow? I can′t wait!" Others commented, "I can′t believe she said ‘oppa’ in Korean (in the Japanese version)," and "She′s still just a teenage girl."

IU plans to promote herself as an adorable artist in the Japanese music scene and many fans are eagerly anticipating her official debut. She will begin promotions in Japan starting in the beginning of March and has plans to unveil her new song in Korea at a later time.
