At a recent press conference for his latest album, legendary singer Seo Taiji thanked IU for the success of their collaboration track, “Sogyeokdong”. At a recent press conference for his 9th album Quiet Night held last October 20th, Seo Taiji expressed his praise for IU and was quoted saying, “IU is a treasure, I wish I could carry her around.” In addition, he thanked her for the success of their collaboration track, “Sogyeokdong”, which ranked first on the October 19th episode of SBS Inkigayo.
Seo Taiji also noted that there were many younger fans at his recent comeback concert, and theorized that a lot of the young fans attended the concert because of IU’s guest performance. He also suggested that the IU’s younger fan base played a large role in the success of “Sogyeokdong”, which has already surpassed more than 1.5 million views on YouTube.
While IU may have played a role in the success of “Sogyeokdong”, Seo Taiji gets sole credit for his album Quiet Night , as his title track “Christmalo.win” achieved an all-kill on October 16th.
