IU to Collaborate with Seo Taiji
IU will collaborate with legendary Kpop singer Seo Taiji.
On September 29, Seo Taiji Company, the singer's agency, announced, "As Seo Taiji was planning his 9th full album, he thought of the ‘Sogyeokdong Project,’ which will tell the story of a sad and beautiful love story in Seogyeok-dong during the 1980’s from the viewpoint of a man and a woman. Through two songs and two music videos, they will unwind two secretive stories.”
IU's version of 'Seogyeok-dong' will be released on October 2, while Soe Taiji's version of the song will be unveiled on October 10.
Seo Taiji said "When I was looking for the female singer who could express the song well, I thought of IU right away, who I've always thought of as the female singer with the best singing ability. She accentuated the charm of the song more than I expected."
Loen Tree, IU's agency, stated, "IU was very happy to receive Seo Taiji’s request and expressed her desire to participate in the project. She felt honored to be participating in the senior singer’s song, who she respects greatly. She said that the song will be a meaningful song for her too, showing anticipation and excitement for the collaboration.”
Meanwhile, Seo Taiji will release his 9th full album 'Quiet Night' on October 20, while his comeback concert 'Chrismalloween' will be held at the main Sports Complex in Seoul on October 18.
