    Singer IU expressed her anticipation for a solo concert.

    On the Feb. 19th broadcast of KBS 2TV’s ‘Entertainment Relay’, IU stated “I really want to hold my own concert” and “Not only a 3-level high note, but even a 5-level or 15-level high note is possible.”

    IU’s 3-level high note in ‘Good Day’ became a hot issue. She has made her acting debut through KBS 2TV’s ‘Dream High’ and is currently promoting her new song ‘A Story Only I Didn’t Know.’

    Meanwhile, IU will be the opening act for the upcoming Corinne Bailey Rae concert to be held in March.

    love her dedication to her fans, she really wants to put on a great performance but I don't even think the level of octaves she goes to is a big deal. Good Day is still a great song without the 3 octaves imo but it gets so much attention

    I am confused...15 level octave? but an octave is 8 notes...but then I never understood the whole 3 level octave thing anyway lol. but it would be great for her to be able to hold her own solo concert~ although it would probably strain her voice lots n__n

    thanks for translating!

    Peoples, its "15 level high notes" not "15 level octaves"! =O Please get your terminology correct. Im not trying to be harsh here. But for those who doesn't know music theories, 1 octave means 8 notes. Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do. Normal peoples have a vocal range of 2 octaves only. only with special vocal training, you can manage to widen your range. Like opera singers, they can sing 3 octaves. So, If you understand what im saying. 15 octaves means IU can sing all the notes on a grand piano, from the lowest bass to the highest treble. So please get the facts right! =)

    But anyway, that's not important. Just anticipate the upcoming concert. Fighting IU! =D

    Friends, it isn't like 3 octave levels in a row as she does in 'Good Day'. But 15 levels she mentions, is about she sing one note and rest, then higher note and rest, then higher note and rest, then so on... (like ha, ha+, ha++, ha+++, ha++++). It doesn't mean she will do 15 levels in a row by take no rest, no breath. :grin:

    Would love to see her hold her own concert!
    IU doesn't even need to the 3 high notes to impress me, I would love to go regardless.

    Thanks for translating this!
