Her album is released today so I am opening this thread. I am very impressed with her after hearing her live on Music Core last week. I can't believe she is only 15 but already with a very good singing voice. Her title song 미아 is written by PJ and lyrics by Choi Kap Won. This combination has written many hit songs before. She is above average looking as well, not stunning but she's still growing up. :) Her stage name is also the same as my alma mater, hard for me not to like her. :lol:

i think this is her interview?

[size=4][b]16세 샛별 아이유(IU) “나와 너 하나되는 무대와 노래가 마냥 좋아요” (인터뷰)[/b][/size]

[뉴스엔 글 박세연 기자 / 사진 지형준 기자]

신예 아이유(IU, 본명 이지은)가 차세대 보컬리스트 자리를 예약하며 힘차게 도약했다. 

23일 데뷔 미니앨범 '로스트 앤 파운드'(Lost and Found)를 발표한 아이유는 만 15세의 어린 나이에도 불구하고 파워풀하고 호소력 짙은 가창력으로 음악 관계자들의 시선을 단숨에 사로잡았다. 유희열, 유영석, 정재형 등 내로라하는 뮤지션들도 그녀 안에 내재된 음악성에 대해 극찬을 아끼지 않았다. 

미니앨범을 채우고 있는 곡의 면면을 살펴보면 특별한 '스펙'보다도 감미롭고 느낌있는 음악이 눈에 띈다. 타이틀곡 '미아'를 비롯, '미운 오리', '있잖아', 'Feel so good', 'Every sweety day' 등 꾸밈없고 매력적인 보컬이 인상적인 5곡이 수록돼있다. 

[b]◆ IU1. 장르 불문! 데뷔앨범서 제 가능성 최대한 살려봤죠[/b]

특히 눈여겨 볼 점은 각 노래들의 분위기와 느낌이 각기 달라 마치 무지개빛을 띠고 있는 듯 하다는 것. 이에 대해 아이유는 "특정 장르를 정해놓지 않고 다양한 장르의 음악을 해보고 싶었어요. 작곡가들이 이런 제 생각을 많이 받아들여준 덕분에 다른 느낌의 음악들이 앨범 하나에 실리게 됐어요"라고 말했다. 

"전 장르를 정해놓지 않고, 제게 주어진 곡이라면 어떤 곡이라도 완벽하게 소화하고 싶어요. 작곡가들도 제가 성장해나가는 과정에서 가장 중요한 첫번째 앨범이니까 제 가능성을 최대한 살리는 앨범으로 만들어보고자 하셨죠." 신인답지 않은 당찬 신인 아이유의 의지다.

뒤늦게 '아이유'라는 이름의 의미를 묻자 "아이(I)는 저 자신을 뜻하고 유(U)는 노래를 들어주는 관객을 의미해요. 제 목소리와 음악으로 나와 당신이 하나가 될 수 있었으면 좋겠다는 의미를 담았죠"라고 생글거리며 말을 이었다. 

"노래가 좋단 얘기를 많이 들어서 너무 감사해요. 가끔씩 TV에서 뮤직비디오가 나오거나 여기저기서 음악이 들려올 때면 '아 맞아, 내 노래지'라는 생각이 드는데 아직까지 실감은 잘 안나요. 그냥 행복해요"라는 아이유의 모습이 천상 아이답게 마냥 즐거워보인다.

it's a bit long and untranslated so i'll just post the first question. i'll translate this tomorrow or if someone else can, please do :D also, i'm making an international forum for her as well :D

hm, i usually don't like singers with cute voice but she's different compared to any other girl in the girl groups with the same age. she can sing ballad, dance or even r&b songs as well and all of them suits her voice. at first when i heard about her i didn't except much but after i watched her i suprised how good her and her song sound. and how good she sang though it was her first live performance. she just needs to work on her expressions ... she was stiff as sang on the stage. but of course, it's understandable because she was nervous. i've listened to her album and i think it's also pretty good. i only liked the 1st and 2nd track on it though, but that two songs are awesome:D oh, and has anyone seen her MV? it's quite scary but at least it's not one of the typical MVs. btw, i wanted to ask, hoping that there is anyone here who's knows korean. during the mnet performance, some girls were screaming things near the end of the song... does anyone know what were they screaming? i read the comments on youtube and it seems those weren't best luck wishes... i don't want her to get antis at the very beginning of her career because she's not that bad so i hope they didn't yell anything bad at her :ph34r:juhilove thanks for sharing that video. it was really her singing that song? i'm curious when that was recorded. she looks even younger than now.
