    The generation is moving from groups to solo artists!

    The K-POP Movement is moving to its next stage and the leader of this new generation is REAL artist “IU”, who will finally be heading to Japan! This 18 year old high school girl has jumped to the top of the Korean solo artists.

    Currently IU is certainly a top artist in Korea! She is popular throughout the nation of Korea and has inherited the title of “Nation’s Little Sister” from Kim Yuna and has even debuted as an actress in the Korean drama “Dream High”. With popularity and true talent, 18 year old high school girl IU is leading the next stage of the K-POP movement with her arrival in Japan! IU can play the guitar and has done covers from Minnie Riperton to SNSD; she truly is the next generation!

    Her album will introduce the best selection of her Korean songs, such has her hit song “Good Day”. The DVD will be an original documentary film, showing IU’s story as an artist.

    she gained popularity with good day and nagging, and has been active since 2008, so i'm on the fence with whether or not its 'too soon' xD
    this is such an interesting development! i hope she can succeed, but i hope she doesn't stay away from korea for too long ;A;

    Among all the korean idols that are making their debut in Japan, IU will certainly cause a good impression on the japanese audience as her talent is outstanding.
