IU as You Know

IU was born as Lee Ji-eunIU, who was born as Lee Ji-eun (Korean: 이지은, May 16, 1993) is a South Korean Pop singer and actress. Her stage name IU, is derived from I and You which symbolizes that we can become one through music.

IU debuted on a Korean music program called M! Countdown in September 18, 2008. On September 24, 2008, she released her first mini-album, Lost and Found, in which the most famous song was the title track, “Missing Child.” However, the album was not commercially successful. It wasn’t until her follow-up album that she succeeded in breaking into the mainstream. On April 16, 2009, IU launched her first full album, titled Growing Up, with the lead promotional number “Boo.” Within three weeks, “Boo” went up to the #1 contenders for SBS Inkigayo, and her name also went up twice on Take 7 together with other notable artists like SG Wannabe and Younha. The song also did well on KBS Music Bank K-Chart, on Mnet M!Countdown chart, and on various online music charts.

In 2009, IU sang the ending title song, “Araro”, for the acclaimed MBC drama Queen Seon Duk, where she was recommended by the director, Sam Kim, citing her “clear tone and her lyrical sensibility.”[3] She was also featured on Mighty Mouth’s album Love Class in the song “희망사항.” In late 2009, IU recorded MC Mong’s song “Love Letter For You (Neoyege Sseuneun Pyeonji),” featuring SHINee’s Key as a rapper in the song.

IU recorded the song “잔소리” (Nagging / Scolded) with 2AM‘s Seulong for the TV show We Got Married. On June 27, 2010, IU won her first award since her debut on SBS Inkigayo for “Nagging.” On July 2, 2010, she won another award for that song on KBS Music Bank K-Chart. Soon after, IU was chosen to sing the main OST song for the MBC drama Road No.1 titled “여자라서” (Because I’m A Woman). IU’s other collaborations include duets with Yoo Seung Ho (“사랑을 믿어요” (Believe in Love)), Sung Shi Kyung (“그대네요” (It’s You)), and Big Bang‘s Seungri (“I Know”).

Soribada, an online music service, combined the music downloads and streams from January 1 to March 30, 2011, to name IU’s song, “Good Day” as the number one song of the first quarter. Her song “Someday” from KBS Drama Dream High OST and her ballad “The Story Only I Didn’t Know” placed 4th and 7th place, respectively – showing that IU got 3 of the top 10 digital spots for the first quarter. Her first original composition, “Dreaming” was used in the drama “Dream High”, but not released officially.

On June 18, 2011, IU held her first official fanmeeting and mini-concert at AX-Korea. It also marked the 1004th day since she debuted.IU also also sang a self-composed OST called “Hold my Hand” for drama series The Greatest Love.IU’s album Last Fantasy was released on November 29, 2011. The track list was revealed on November 22, 2011.
