    Singer Lee Juk praises IU’s cover of ‘Waiting’.

    On the 8th, Lee Juk wrote on his Twitter “It was great listening to IU sing Panic’s ‘Waiting’ yesterday on ‘Dream High’. Indeed, she’s really good.”

    Earlier on the 7th, playing the role of ‘Pil Sook’ in KBS2TV’s ‘Dream High,’ IU sang ‘Waiting’ accompanied by guitar. After the scene of her sweetly singing ‘Waiting’ during a tranquil moment, ‘IU Waiting’ became the #1 search term across internet sites, reflecting the curiosity of many netizens.

    ‘Waiting’ is a song from when Lee Juk and Kim Jin Pyo were performing together as the group, Panic. As the lyricist/writer of ‘Waiting’, Lee Juk praised IU’s cover and stated “Thank you ‘Dream High’," expressing his gratitude for making his past song a hot topic once more.

    it's really beneficial for people who give permission for their songs to be in a drama like dream high. it's a great way to market the song. in IU's case, she did a fantastic job of covering it...i love her version =)

    T.T That song is so good that I tear up when I was watching and listening at the same time.
    Her emotions from her voice just fit perfectly with the scene when Wooyoung stopped to listen to her song and when Samdong fainted. T.T What a sad episode...

    Oh my goodneeess I remember this and it was just beautiful.
    IU's singing and her voice is very angelic <3
    I wish they'd release an official version of her cover though.
    In fact, they should release all of her covers as official recordings!
    IU is <3 Thanks for sharing! ^_^

    Thanks a lot for linking the cover. I can't wait to get there cause I'm wondering why she's at the hospital in the first place (I know, spoilers >.>). Glad to hear that shes gotten the approval of the original writer. Thanks for translating Jane.
