IU dominating music charts
As of noon yesterday, the lead single “My Old Story,” originally sung by veteran singer Jo Duk-bae, had remained in the No. 1 spot for three consecutive days on nine of the online music charts, including Melon, Mnet and Olleh Music.
“When Love Passes” and “The Meaning of You,” featuring Kim Chang-wan, also made it into the Top 10.
“Flower Bookmark” is IU’s first tribute album and features seven covers of classic Korean pop songs. It is rare for remake albums - which are usually not accompanied by live musical performances - to gain so much public attention.
