[TRANSLATION] 131114 Melon Music Awards Red Carpet Interview - IU
It’s really the nation’s little sister. There’s no way for you to not love her. The well-loved top singer in Korea, IU! Not just as a singer but also as an actress, she’s showing a new side of herself. Through a variety of genres in her new album, IU has also become more mature in her music. Yes, IU wears red shoes to perform on stage, but today, she opted to accessorise with a red rose instead, while wearing a black dress. She looks really beautiful, doesn’t she? It’s an outfit that really matches the red carpet. That’s right. Alright then, IU could you come over here for your interview? IU-ssi, I really wanted to meet you. Welcome! You even came here holding a rose.
Actually, although you came for Melon Music Awards today, but you’re not only a singer but an actress as well. When do you think you might win an acting award? Well… I’m not too sure.
You’re holding a rose too. Did you perhaps intend to give this to someone or is it part of your concept for today? On the way here, a fan gave it to me so I just accepted it.
Your outfit really suits the occasion today. I’m curious about what kind of performance you’ll bring for us later on. I’m going to perform “The Red Shoes” but it’ll be a slightly different… performance on a larger scale.
From the nation’s little sister to your sexy concept and becoming an actress, you’re a really versatile Ivy, sorry I mean IU. Alright then, this is IU. Can we look forward to better performances from you? Yes, I’ll continue to work hard. Once again, let’s give a warm round of applause to IU. Thank you. I was really looking forward to meeting IU. Yes.
