IU has plans to release a new song in Korea

After dominating the K-pop scene last year with her second full-length album ‘Last Fantasy‘, singer IUhas plans to release a new song in Korea.
She has yet to decide if the song will be released as a digital single or if it will serve as a follow-up track to her second album, but the song is nearing full completion.
Because the singer has plans to release her first Japanese single “Good Day” on March 21st, she will be focusing on her Japanese promotions for the time being and take some more time before deciding when to release her new song in Korea.
An IU representative informed OSEN on the 10th, “IU will be focusing on Japanese promotions in March, and it is difficult to say when she will be able to begin promotions in Korea. What’s for sure is that she plans to release a song to follow her hit “You & I”. It’s just a matter of when.”
In related news, IU is already heightening the expectations of the Japanese public, having already captured their hearts with her cute and multi-talented idol charm.
