South Korean singer Lee Ji-eun, better known by her stage name IU, will perform her “Goodday” concert in Shenzhen.
She began her music career at the age of 15 with her debut album, “Lost and Found.” Her follow-up albums, “Growing Up” and “IU...IM,” brought her mainstream success, but it was through “Good Day,” the lead single from her 2010 album “Real,” that she achieved national stardom.
“Good Day” spent five consecutive weeks at the top position of South Korea’s Gaon Digital Chart and holds the record for spending the most number of weeks at No. 1 along with Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
With the success of her 2011 albums, “Real+” and “Last Fantasy,” IU established herself as a formidable force on the music charts of her native country and further cemented her clean and sweet image.
The year of 2011 also saw her first foray into song-writing with “Hold My Hand,” which was written for the television series “The Greatest Love.” IU’s third full-length album release, “Modern Times” (2013) showcased a more mature style that was a departure from her established girlish image, with several tracks reaching the top 10 positions on the Gaon Digital Chart.
While her subsequent releases, including albums “A Flower Bookmark” and “Chat-Shire,” continued to deviate from mainstream K-pop style, IU retained her dominance on the music charts. “Chat-Shire” marked the first time she is credited as the sole lyricist and producer of her own album.
IU has released three studio albums and nine extended plays, scoring two No. 1 albums and 14 No. 1 singles on the Gaon Music Chart. As one of the best-selling solo artists in the K-pop industry, which is dominated by boy and girl groups, she has been included on Forbes magazine’s annual Korea Power Celebrity 40 list since 2012, reaching a peak ranking of No. 3 in 2012. Billboard recognized IU as the all-time leader of its Korea K-Pop Hot 100 chart with the most No. 1 songs and the artist who has held the No. 1 position for the most number of weeks.
Aside from her music career, IU has also ventured into hosting radio and television shows, as well as acting. Following her supporting role in teen drama “Dream High” and minor appearances in several television series, IU starred in “You’re the Best,” “Lee Soon-shin,” “Pretty Man” and “The Producers.”
