    IU will be releasing a song from her Korean album on Nov 22nd and staging her comeback, before she enters the Japanese market next month.

    According to sources from LOEN Entertainment, IU will be releasing her Pre-debut album in Japan on Dec 14th. This album will include her all-time Korean hits, from 'Good Day' to 'Nagging', the duet with 2AM's Seulong.

    However, this album will not include any new Japanese songs and only Korean hits [*Note: According to the tracklist, there will be a new song, probably in Korean, titled 'Last Fantasy']. There are no concrete plans for promotional activities yet and there is a high possibility that IU will be focusing on her activities within Korea.

    According a source, "One new song from IU's new Korean album will be released on Nov 22nd and the rest of the songs on the album are scheduled to be released by the end of November."

    The agency also expressed briefly mentioned, "Although IU's first Japanese album is receiving warm responses among the locals, we have yet to sign any contract or agreement with EMI Music Japan."

    In September, EMI Music Japan's official homepage stated, "18-year-old musician leading the way to K-Pop's new generation", as an introduction to IU and announcement of the release of her Japanese album.

    EMI Music Japan was also complimented IU, saying, "As a singer, she has an amazing ability to express herself and also outstanding guitar performance and composing skills. Her vocals simply come alive through her free expression."

    (11/11 Update: IU will be releasing official Japanese debut album at the start of next year)

    (11/13 Update: News sources have now removed all references to the Nov 22 date, so it looks like that may have been incorrect.)

    (11/17 Update: According to LOEN, IU will be releasing her new album on Nov 29th. The tracklist will be out on Nov 22nd.)
