IU takes time off for health


Female solo singer IU, who became popular with her new album “Real,” released Dec. 9, is putting an early end to promotional activities for the album.

“We are worried for IU’s health because of her busy schedule, and have decided to end the promotional period two weeks earlier than scheduled,” Leon Entertainment, her management company, said on Monday. “She will take a brief breather from her music career to regain her strength.”

The entertainment company also said the singer has been suffering from frequent colds.

Her last performance was on the Sunday SBS music program “Popular Music,” when she sang “Good Day.”

IU recorded a video message and posted on her official fan page after the performance, saying, “I thank all my fans for their support and will return soon. I will also focus on my role in the KBS drama, “Dream High.”

아이유, 건강 악화로 활동 중단…소속사 “체력이 바닥났다”

아이유가 건강 악화로 음반 홍보 활동을 조기 중단했다.

소속사측은 "새 앨범 활동과 함께 드라마 촬영, 예능 프로그램 출연이 겹치면서 아이유의 건강에 무리가 왔다"면서 "피로가 누적된 상태에서 최근 감기 몸살까지 앓아 체력이 바닥났다. 아쉽지만 더 이상의 악화를 막기 위해 '좋은날'홍보를 마치기로 했다"고 전했다.

16일 SBS '인기가요'를 마지막으로 '좋은날' 활동을 마감한 아이유는 이날 공식 팬카페에 "그동안 보내주신 사랑에 정말 감사드린다. 지금은 좀 아쉽지만 조만간 멋진 모습으로 돌아오겠다"는 영상 메시지를 띄웠다. 음반 활동을 2주가량 앞당겨 종료한 아이유는 드라마 '드림하이'촬영에 매진한다.
