(IU's Palette) (Every End of the Day) (IU's Palette) Hi this is 'IU's Palette' I'm the MC IU Nice to meet you Today we opened Palette differently By performing <Every End of the Day> It was our Palette's opening song for today As we always do with our performance Our Palette Band transcribed and performed Why do you think I sang the song as Palette's opening? Why? Can you think of it? I think many of you have already knew I came here as the MC of Palette Not only the MC But also today I'm the guest myself I'll do my best Thank you Anyways I came here as a guest too because My fans would already know ('LILAC', the 5th album) My 5th album is released
('LILAC', the 5th album) It came out in 4 years The title of my 5th album is 'LILAC' You guys will watch this after my album release For me, I'm filming today before the album release So it's my first live performance All of the songs are going to be my first live performance I'm a bit nervous I used to sit back and listen to guests (MC IU's moments) I used to react like (MC IU's moments) Wow, so good I'm here to sing and it's making me shaky Let's start our show now You wonder why did I sang <Every End of the Day> as an opening? (Looking around) (Looking around) Yes (Looking around) Curious, right? Then show me your curious gestures Curious The reason why I sang <Every End of the Day> is It's the first song I released when I turned 20 It was the title song of 'Spring of a Twenty Year Old' So it means something
This album is my last album in twenties (29-year-old this year) The album of 29 'Spring of a Twenty Nine Year Old' is subtitled in this album So if I sing <Every End of the Day> which released in my 20s As a opening song in Palette today I thought it would mean something for my fans I usually don't sing this song as a live performance I only sing it in my concert but I sang here today So before I filmed Palette I wasn't sure about myself doing everything today So I took some questions from my fans (Chapter.1 Come back) First, many questions regarding how I feel (Chapter.1 Come back) About the come back and I can't miss that How do you feel about releasing the abum in 4 years? That's my first question I feel so relieved Well right now My album hasn't come out at this point I feel so relieved I think I went through
Tough times making this album I spent much time writing lyrics I even thought of Requesting a song from other lyricist It was that tough To write lyrics at the last moment Except Kim Jehwi and Kim Heewon, Most of the composers were first to work with So delivering my thoughts And setting my tone Took a while Before I recorded songs I had lost my drive So I was puzzled while recording And I had to work with new composers When I finished the lyrics of the last song It felt just the same after the mid-term exam in school When the bell rings Argh That feeling I studied hard until middle school I knew the sense of release On the last day of mid-term I felt the same way this time
I wrote all of the lyrics Saying like this I felt really good So how I feel Of releasing my album is I feel relieved Why did you choose 'LILAC' as a title? LILAC means Memories of the Youth I released my album as two versions It's my first time releasing as two versions My fans, UAENA Told me to release as two versions years ago Honestly, I hadn't had any informations And I wondered if it's okay to release two versions as a solo? I didn't know other singers done it too Usually I heard group singers release that way I doubted myself as if "Is it really okay?" After much consideration, I finally decided Okay, let's try to release it in 2 versions My fans want it so badly, let's do it
I thought about how could I make it so special I divided as HILAC/BYLAC I divided to emphasize the memories of youth in dual meanings My 20s are the youth So BYLAC means good bye to my twenties And thirties could be also The memories of youth that I'm going to make And HILAC means saying hi to my 30s This is how I divided as Good bye to the memories of youth And hello to my new memories of youth That is my two versions, HILAC/BYLAC in this album So that's why it's 'LILAC' Did I answer it clearly? Did you target the 3255 which it came out 6 months ago? 6 months ago in 'Lee Jidong ASMR' I mentioned our computer's password What's the password?
3255? and pressed 3255 (Laptop was locked in Lee Jidong ASMR) Wait a second (Laptop was locked in Lee Jidong ASMR) My laptop is... wait My laptop is... wait (Unexpected situation) (Unexpected situation) Ma'am, what's (Unexpected situation) Our password for this laptop? (She whispered the password) (She whispered the password) Okay wait (She whispered the password) 3255 (I can't keep my secrets) Why is it not working? (Sniffling sound) I'm sorry Please wait a moment (After the shoot, laptop owner changed the password...) My fans were like "Why did she say 3255?" (3255 means the date of March 25th?) I heard they had some discussions It was not a spoiler or anything Well Most of you strongly believed it's a spoiler So I thought of just saying 'Should I say it was a spoiler?' But I couldn't lie about something that didn't happen It wasn't a spoiler I decided to release on March 25th because My lunar birthday is March 25th
I was born on March 25th by lunar calendar I thought 'I should release an album around March' Which day would be better? Should I release on 29th because I'm 29? Or 19th? I thought it over (I love my birthday♥) March 25th (I love my birthday♥) I decided that way It would sound better if it was... But it was not I thought it would be released around March I just thought it would be around March I'll wrap it up with how I feel about releasing my album (Chapter.2 Tracks) I'll talk about the tracks of my album It says I read all the questions before On my script Honestly, I haven't (Honest) (Honest) I haven't read it so I might blabber a lot I had no time reading the script because it's my first performing I was focused about my first live performance the whole day
So I'll just pick the questions And read it out loud What's the biggest attraction does IU think from her 5th album? (Thinking) (Thinking) Well 5th album is Very attractive I'm very confident of my album at this point No time to be bored of this album? I tried to put in a lot but also I threw away unnecessary things For example, in this album there is no songs made by me I was planning to record 6 of my songs So I finished making it Then I thought as it's too much? Of course I know a lot of my fans are waiting for my own song And also there are songs that I promised Like <Drama> or <Station> I know there are many of you loving songs written by me
I had to work with new composers So I had to decide the priority in the making What would be focused more The varieties of genre? Or the quantities? Or Take out the unnecessary parts And make a true concentrated album There were the moments I had to think over and over And the latter seems much better But it doesn't mean that All the songs I've made turn to ashes My songs are so precious to me And I like my songs Very much (Precious me) Very much I cherish my own songs so much I just took away because Those don't fit with the tone I have plans So don't be disappointed Someday, I'll put my songs because I love them Don't worry This is a very important question
What's <My sea>? 1. Is it 'The child' and 'My sea'? Or 2. Is it 'The child & my' and 'Sea'? This is very hard This is why Korean is hard to understand It's a hard question Composer, Kim Jehwi, what do you think? 2. It's 'The child & my' and 'Sea' It's 'The child & my' and 'Sea'? Are you sure? I'll give you a chance to change your mind (So fun) (Like brother and sister) (Like brother and sister) I'll give you a chance (Like brother and sister) 3 seconds (Not changing) That's the answer That's the answer It's 'The child & my' and 'Sea' <My sea> It's an amazing song Now you guys would know because you heard it at this point While I was recording I really felt my blood pressure would explode (They didn't expect to laugh) (Only here in Palette) I'll tell you only here in Palette
This I took myself Singing that part Strangely, that part went well at one take (<My sea> Recording studio) (You're watching the legend high-pitched that was recorded in one take) (Increased blood pressure) It's challenging (After monitoring, everybody was satisfied) What a fun recording day I'm showing this video only in Palette I look so pitiful So don't share it At that time I lost weight So I had no strength It was very hard to sing that part There's one more episode We have the composer of <My sea> here Original song's note was half lower Take that guy's face Take that cruel guy right there The song's note was half lower
But on the day When I finished recording the first verse He said, it doesn't sound right Let's raise half note up I'm good at imitating Jehwi No, Jehwi it's already high If you raise... I said, don't say that if you're not going to sing this Why don't you tell us by yourself? (Getting angry) How could you raise the note at the time (Getting angry) when I already finished recording 1 verse? At this point... You should know this too If we raise the note you're not the only one who's suffering Yes I have to record all the verses Yeah Even at that time I already finished the tracks So if we raise the note I also had to work more So it was that important to raise the note It was worth it? Yeah, it sounded better One more thing that I want to talk about For <My sea>, Kim Jehwi said
I want to make a song that tells a history of you I'll make 5 mins 16 secs song exactly as your birthday Depending on the player Like with GOM Player, it's 5 mins and 16 secs But with Windows Media Player, it's 5 mins and 17secs But our intention was our song to be exactly at 5 minutes 16 seconds That was our intention... right? Sure... Yes You don't need a mic if you're answering that short (No need) Let's go with The next question It's about <Coin> Why is <Coin> also the title? Well, <Coin> is in fact The first track to be in the album I got the verses Without the melody And I thought it would be fun To sing punk music It was the last track to be completed So I didn't know how to deliver
The lyrics and The melody I couldn't get how to deliver The song After the lyrics and recording within two days My first rap verse was in there I kinda did rap in <Leon> But it was too... you know hard to say it as a rap My dad heard this song and he asked why isn't this the title song? He said "You should release this as the title song you fool" My dad really loved <Coin> My dad has a sense of popular songs Songs that he was satisfied Stayed in the chart for a long time So it suddenly became the title song as well So I got to make the choreography for this song For me, this song is...? This song made me go through hard times But it's also my fondly loved song
It's not the first live performance which is released, right? But it is for me Anyway, I'll sing my song In live performance with my band (Coin) (IU's Palette) It was good It was my first live performance My band transcribed so well I loved it One more thing regarding <Coin> In my music video (Took the MV yesterday) Did you watch? (How can I watch the unreleased MV?) Get out Kim Yun Seok was in the music video (MC IU is unsatisfied of the poor reaction) Weak (MC IU is unsatisfied of the poor reaction) Let's go again Kim Yun Seok is in Wow When I wrote this song I played <Tazza : The High Rollers> through IPTV in my studio
Getting that energy from the movie I'm... I'm the winner I put a spell like this and worked on it So I wished a cameo To appear in my MV and wondered who? I easily figured out The scene with Kim Yun Seok Fighting with armes tied was my wish He unhesitaingly said okay He said he was filming a movie near the sea He filmed it shortly And went off to the movie set So I was very touched After getting a good energy from him I was able to finish the shoot So I'll take this time I'm not sure Kim Yun Seok would watch this show Truly X2 Thank you X2 so much You were very X2 awesome thank you very much Now Flu = Forever Love UAENA? is your question And you got it Sudden answering time How did you guys know? How did you notice?
I thought no one would notice Forever Love UAENA I love you forever What is the key choreography of 'LILAC'? I want to learn That was a question Who would like to learn? (Me) Anyone? (Me) Donghwan We promised to raise our hands together (IU - LILAC) ('LILAC' starts with rhythmical sound) (A 70-80s disco song with funky rhythm and pop) (Addictive disco performance) (Addictive disco performance) (Shall we learn LILAC choreography?) To look more like it Put your hands in your pocket Put it in your pocket And to one side Your hair is short, Donghwan...? Twist your hair like this Twist while you chew a gum in your mouth Like this X2 (Dancing) (Dancing) You're getting it (Good example) The key cheoreography) Can you do it? I'll just teach you the steps One two three (She never taught someone...) One two three Four, go forward This way This way and that way (Continuing with Spartan training) This and that
That's all for the steps One two three four (Focused) One two three four (Boiled chicken Oh Oh Oh Oh) (Isn't it...?) Why did you raise your hand? (Missed) (Missed) Stretch like this (Toes thought the fingers would do the work) (I can do that) (Ha Ha) (Hey, you can do this) Stretch it Let's go again Start Front and overhead (Hey piano man, dancing hands) Front and overhead (Same person) (Same person) Thanks We should dance with the music We have the music prepared (How will the LILAC dance go?) (How will the LILAC dance go?) One two three (Only played the piano for life) Okay, one more X2 Go Point Front and overhead X2 (Last part was perfect) Well done X2 (Harder to escape than The Great Escape) (Harder to escape than The Great Escape) Great job You should teach them one by one Next Among 10 songs, is there a song that resembles you the most?
This song <Celebrity> resembles me a lot I also wrote it thinking as me <Celebrity> is a lot like me and <Ah puh>? <Ah puh> seems surprising I worked with AKMU CHANHYUK I had a talk with CHANHYUK Since the beginning of last year, We talked about working together One of the song that CHANHYUK wrote is (It's Fried Egg's Dream...) <Fried Eggs> It wasn't released But AKMU sang in their concert and I was there as a guest I suggested to make the evolved version of <Fried Eggs> together And CHANHYUK gave me a great song There was this keyword of 'Ah puh' in the guide record version Ah Ah Ah Puh Puh Puh Again Hu Hu Hu It was really fun to sing It sounded so CHANHYUK-ish which is cute
While you're balancing on the wave and you meet someone You say hi, again It's the person you see everyday on the wave Until the end of our life we go round and round And see X2 each other Hi, again Let's meet again until the very end This means Of course include "Good luck to you" "We'll see again" Because I'm not going to be eaten up by the sea I'll keep balancing And enjoy the surfing Let's see again until we get sick of it Like that I added the feeling of enduring And wishing the luck to deliver it at once We will greet But we'll also live the expansion That's the message I tried to put in That's <Ah puh> It's very similiar with my situation Shall we listen to that song? (Grin)
That will also be my first time performing live I think I won't sing <Ah puh> in live a lot But today, I'll sing with my band And perform <Ah puh> in live (Ah puh) (Palette by IU) (<Ah puh>, impressive song with funny lyrics) I talked about the album 'LILAC' Honestly, I have more to talk about If I talk all the episodes in every songs It's too long If I tell you everything here Our band would not be able to go home I performed my two new songs in live today (Chapter.3 29 IU) I would like to talk about 29-year-old IU What do you regret that you haven't tried in 20s? I think there were not many that I wanted to do There was nothing to be unsatisfied Because I worked a lot and worked hard There's no such thing that I missed while working
I liked my work and I wanted to do many things I want to change a bit In my 30s It's a greeting to the different version of me That's my goal In 30s Let's focus on living than working Working like crazy And the delightness I felt After working That's the story of <Coin> In the lyrics of <Coin> Like a game that I'm addicted (Workaholic is written as game in <Coin>) Like a game that I'm addicted I really enjoy working hard But if I contine this for a decade I thought it could harm me in a way is my thought Remembering my 20s I have no big regrets So in 30s I really want to take care of myself Take care my life And people around me I made this album with a great motivation I tried to explain and wish it through my album
Which is your best one verse in LILAC? It's another question It's very hard to answer but In the <Epilogue> If you say 'yes' to all of my questions That's already meaningful in my life that I would nod on Is the lyrics from the song I ask to you Did you enjoy meeting me? Were you happy to love me? At some point of your life Will you feel proud of that you met me? You are to me, how about you? If you say 'yes' to all of my questions I would nod on my life That is already meaningful in my life Those words are The lyrics that I wrote before the song came out I wrote as a prose And when the melody came out I want it to deliver in <Epilogue> I thought it would be good
Lyrics came out in 30 minutes I think it's my favorite song in this album All of my songs are precious, of course But this song contains the messages I really wanted to deliver So I cherish <Epilogue> I would like to say the verse from <Epilogue> Represents my album <Epilogue>, The song that I cherish the most would be the next song that I'll sing it to you (Epilogue) (IU's Palette) Guys, the part in <Epilogue> La La La La La La That... That's my voice My album is not released yet But I think you guys might have thought it's not my voice But it's mine So I thought about singing that song in live
But it could be seen as funny So I held it But while I was recording that part I was very happy Like Singing vibration in sixteenth notes I enjoyed singing the song Including the <Epilogue> I performed my new songs I got last three questions What message would you like to deliver through this album? was asked (Thinking) I debuted at 16-year-old So you saw me since I was a mid-teen And you saw me from early to late 20s If you ever listened to my songs I sang this song at 20 And sang this song at 21 Audiences who were there in my 20s I would like to say a sincere thank you I wanted to thank you all
I wanted to make this album to thank all of you I would like to deliver My true appreciation to you If you shorten your album in 5 letters what could it be? Short time long see It's the lyrics from <Ah puh> (Grin) (Grin) Short time long see I'll shorten as Short time long see It's the last question I already answered this So finally I answered sincerely to your questions I tried to say everything and I don't know I have to calculate the date of airing Anyways the things I said today, I mentioned for the first time here If other interviews air before this show That means I already repeated my answers So I'm a little worried Did you enjoy the show today? What if IU's episode is the least funny?
