The roster of K-Pop idols who’ve jumped across the water to Japan seems to be ever-growing, as ‘Korea’s little sister’ IU announced that she’s struck a deal with EMI Music.
“IU’s popularity in Korea is enough to drop a flying bird out of the sky,” said EMI Music said on their webpage. “She has no match in expressing emotions through her songs and also plays the guitar. Her vocal skills are second to none and has the ability to breathe life with her boundless talent.”
IU’s first album (to be released on December 14th) will be a special release acting as a prelude to her official Japanese activities. The album will include a total of six tracks, including “Good Day” as well as “Nagging“, her duet song with 2AM‘s Seulong.
