    IU made use of various singing styles throughout the album. Going down by half a key, up by half a key, the various changes in her voice make it seem as if it is a completely different person singing. "With 13 songs in the album, lest it gets boring, I added variety slightly to the songs. I was worried about whether people would notice, but luckily it seems to have been conveyed successfully."

    In her original composition, "A Stray Puppy", IU talked about abandoning the things that one loves. We asked if she's worried that one day she might lose all her popularity in an instant, and she wrinkled her nose in response, saying, "Just like what this song tells us, even though I'm trying not to be pessimistic, I would be lying if I said there's completely no such possibility."

    There are also many songs that exude her unique cute charm. The song, 'Uncle' (composed by Lee Juck), dedicated to all the uncles in the world, contains IU's childhood memories. "Well, my nose is kind of flat. My nostrils look unusual too as they are triangular. So I was always keeping my head down [Keep your head downnn], so no one would see them. (Laughter) My uncles whom I grew up with would make fun of me when they saw me, and then tell me that I'm pretty after that just to pacify me. The line from IU's song, "You even say that my low-bridged nose is as pretty as Han Ga In's" appears to be from IU's conversations with her uncles.

    The song 'Sleeping Prince', composed by Yoon Sang, has a fairytale feel and in actual fact, is rather similar to 'Cruel Fairytale'. "Yoon Sang sunbae requested for me to put in all the cute charm I have inside me to sing the song. Hahaha. But as we were recording, I said, "Ah, once I grow older by another year or two, my cute voice is going to disappear!" (Laughter)

    In reply to question about what she's going to do in her 20s since she decided not to go to college in order to pursue her singing career, IU said, "I don't think I'll change much when I reach 20. Anyway, I would still be me. Just that I would have more responsibility, right? I would like being able to drive, return home late and enter more shops. Alcohol? My parents don't give me any, so I don't really drink. I've tried beer, so is it just about paying money to buy and drink? (Laughter)"


    (Again, omitted stuff we already know)

    Oh it's the nose complex again though she's really cute already, but anyway, I think it's just to make her sound funny, heehee. IU really has a lot to say in the interviews it's really nice she can be very open with things like that. :)

    kkkk..her answers are cute :wink: some people think that college is important and against IU's thought. Personally I think, she's a great and strong girl bcs she has decided to follow her dream, to be a singer. But, on the other hand, i think college isn't all about math, science, and etc. she could enter a college that only focus on the entertainment such as music, arts, acting, ....

    i love the song "Uncle" although i'm not one of them, i'm still young. The first time i love IU since she sang "You Know" at Incheon Vacation Concert or something, she so cute in short hair. I'm kinda related to this song. i want to be the one saying how cute and pretty she is in person!! IU, saranghaeyo!!!

    Yeah. It's just cute to see the translation. Don't think about nose too much IU ^^. And we still support you whether you want to go to college now or later. And don't ever try alcohol because things will complicated after you're in drunk condition. Kkkk~
