    Singer/songwriter Yoon Sang revealed that he regrets composing the song 'Story Only I Didn't Know' for IU.

    On a recent episode of KBS Prime 'Lee Geum Hee's Special Meeting', Yoon Sang made a guest appearance and expressed, "When I first saw IU on TV, her gaze was downcast" and "Therefore, I composed the ballad 'Story Only I Didn't Know' for her to match that sad expression of hers."

    "But now thinking back about it, I feel slightly sorry for writing such a sad song for IU who has yet to even complete high school. However, this time when we had the chance to work together again for the EXPO 2012 Yeosu Korea theme song, fortunately I had the chance to give her a much brighter image by composing the song 'Stories of the Sea' for her," said Yoon Sang, revealing his affections for his junior, IU.

    Meanwhile, shown on this broadcast on May 27th is also the music life story of Yoon Sang for whom it has been 20 years since he debuted as a singer as well as what Sung Si Kyung, Yoon Jung Shin and other stars have to say about Yoon Sang's image.

    awwww..but i love "The Story Only I Didn't Know".. it's a very nice ballad and we'll get to see a different IU..far from her cute and bright image..and i believe that the song was perfect for IU's voice..it showed IU's versatility as a singer :D

    yeaa, agree with you guys IU needs happier song..but she sang that song very well !!! everything that she has done is totally amazing, she sings every songs with her angelic voice.. so what Yoon Sang sunbaenim said isn't true at all..personally i think, that video/song shows that she is talented and she can do something different from what she has done..The Story Only I Didn't Know is amazing :rolleyes:

    I also like "Story Only I Didn't Know" but I understand why he says he regrets it..
    Nevertheless even if she is young she did a good job at that song,
    but for her, happy songs are still the best for now ;) - cause she looks soo cuute!! :grin:

    (When I read that he regreted it from the home page I thought he meant it in a bad way xD
    and I was like "Get outta here! we dont need your songs!!" xD)

    The song is great and IU sung it well. I think he regrets it because IU was a more depressed during the time she was promoting that song in order to stay in character/express the song.

    I don't regret that at all, the song is too awesome! Who else has such versatility to sing both cutesy songs and ballads with such prowess? If IU were to sing the same kind of songs for a long time, I would probably get bored, so a change is always welcome (for me at least).

    The first song of IU I heard is The Story I Didn't Know and it's also my first favorite among her songs. Maybe it's not suit her for she's so young, but I think it's gave a chance to sing such song like this. And she did it great. It's true that she felt depressed during promoting it so I guess Yoon Sang regrets for this. Anyway, if she can sing different kinds of song, let's give her a chance :)

    oh he shouldn't regret it! that song showed her singing talents amazingly well! it gave her a different image as well, and she had to learn to put emotions into the words she sang^^ thats always an amazing lesson for a singer~

    i love this song!~~ i would've missed out on so much talent if he didnt write it XD
    thanks for the news!!^^

    The song was written excellently by composer Yoon Sang and was sang beautifully by IU, maybe it's the timing. IU is still very young to be singing this type of song although she pulled it off very well, it's better for her to be singing happy songs that suits her age. But in the future that song would have been perfect!
