IU is currently working on a new album, aiming for a release in the first half of next year. While the exact release date has not yet been set, considering V’s enlistment as an active-duty soldier in the army on the 11th, the music video shoot was expedited to accommodate his schedule.
Previously, V had proven his close relationship with IU by appearing as a guest on her YouTube show “IU’s Palette” in September. The two have built a friendship through their discussions on music and are now so close that they speak informally to each other, a fact that has garnered much attention.
IU has not been active in music since the release of her compilation album Pieces in December 2021. But she held a successful solo concert “The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun” at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in September last year, the first for a Korean female artist.
