IU is active as a wedding song fairy.
IU released a photo of her wedding to singer Kwon So-hyun, who improved the perfection of her performance by participating as a chorus in her own performance for 10 years, through her official account on February 3.
IU sang “The Meaning of You”, one of her representative songs, while facing Kwon So-hyun at her wedding that day.
IU said, “Why am I receiving a surprise event at Sohyun’s wedding? ‘The Meaning of You’ was even better because I sang it face to face with you. I am only happy. Our jewel Sohyun,” she added, adding, “We have mingled our voices together for 10 years.”
Jeon So-hyun made her name known by appearing on the SBS audition program ‘K-Pop Star 4’ in 2014. She pursues her singing career under the name WVVE, and she also performs as a chorus member for several of her fellow singers, including IU.
This is not the first time that IU has congratulated her precious friends on their new future with her unique beautiful voice. IU sang the wedding song for her manager of 7 years, in 2015, and she sang the wedding song for her close friend, actress Yoo In-na‘s manager of 10 years in 2019.
She also congratulated her fellow musicians on their weddings. She sang the wedding song for composer Lee Min-soo, who worked on her own hit song, in 2016, and the wedding song for T-ara’s Jiyeon and baseball player Hwang Jae-gyun in December 2022. In November 2021, she sang the wedding song for singer and actor Lee Ji-hoon and her Japanese wife Ayane.
In addition to her, IU and a cast member whom she met through JTBC’s “Hyori’s Homestay” got married in 2019, and she headed to Busan. At the time, IU kept her promise to make time to sing a congratulatory song even though she was busy with her filming schedule for the tvN drama “Hotel Del Luna”. In October 2022, about two months before she started her public relationship with actor Lee Jong-seok, she attended Lee Jong-seok’s younger sister’s wedding and sang her congratulatory song.
IU’s caring for her friends is not limited to congratulatory songs. Expressing love by giving a special gift on a meaningful day. Park Myung-soo revealed on KBS Cool FM’s “Park Myung-soo’s Radio Show”, which aired on October 1 last year, that he received a holiday gift from IU for her 9th year in a row.
Park Myung-soo said, “IU sent me a beef set as expected. She has been sending it to me for 9 years, and soon I will give it as a gift as a sign of gratitude.”
She gave her luxury bag to ITZY. On September 17, 2022, she held her own solo concert “The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun” held at the Olympic Main Stadium, Jamsil Sports Complex, Songpa-gu, Seoul. It was a reward for appearing as a guest.
ITZY’s Yuna said on MBC’s “Radio Star” that aired on January 31st this year, “We (ITZY) were guests at senior IU’s concert. Five people lined up and entered the waiting room, saying, ‘It’s such an honor,’ and there were shopping bags in the waiting room. There was one like this, along with a handwritten letter. But each member had a different (bag) brand,” he said.
Meanwhile, IU will release her 6th mini album “The Winning” on February 20th at 6pm (KST). She continues her hard work as an actress as well. She will appear alongside actor Park Bo-gum in the new drama “I Was Fooled” by writer Im Sang-chun and director Kim Won-seok, which is scheduled to be released on Netflix.
