“Who is that? Isn’t this lip-synched?”
IU’s 3-level high note left the 30,000 strong Japanese in awe.
Prior to the release of her Japanese debut single ‘Good Day’, IU began her Japan promotions starting with her performance at the “Toky
o Girls Collection 2012 S/S” fashion event held at Yokohama Arena today.
The moment IU appeared from behind a dark screen, cheers from Japanese fans who had been anticipating her performance could be heard and shot of her fan holding up a placard appeared on the screen.
Dressed in a cute black and
white mini-dress, IU sang the Japanese version of “Good Day”. Even Japanese fans who hadn’t heard of IU before became interested and were asking, “Who’s that?”, “Was that live?”, after IU sang the 3-level high note in ‘Good Day’.
IU gave a steady performance in front of an audience of over 30,000, showcasing her unique charm. Furthermore, after the song, she made an appearance on the runway, alongside other top Japanese models, and receiving a warm applause from the audience.
Prior to her debut, the Japanese media has reported that, “IU, the female solo singer who shares the status of the nation’s little sister with Kim Yuna, has arrived” and is a rising Hallyu star in the spotlight.
Also, during the time when more than 200 media gathered in the press room, cries of “IU”, “IU” could be heard everywhere.
Meanwhile, at this year’s Tokyo Girls Collection, other than IU, Kara also appeared as a special guest and After School’s Nana also made another appearance on the show as a main model.
