Intimate concert for young vocalist
Held in Sogang University’s Mary Hall in western Seoul, which only accommodates 455 people maximum, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter interacted with her fans for over two hours, by singing acoustic versions of her bestselling singles such as “Good Day” to “You & I.”
IU’s move to perform in a small theater was considered quite smart of her, since K-pop idol stars of her age tend to aim for large stadium concerts to promote how big they are. IU, however, chose to concentrate on delivering her music to a small audience to once again establish her identity as a strong vocalist.
She also revealed live versions of her tribute album. Her concert ends on Sunday night.
