IU Makes Surprise Announcement with Upcoming Concert Date

On April 5, IU made a surprise announcement through her Twitter account, revealing her upcoming concert date.

“You know what? I’m having a concert! Making the announcement ahead of Loen! June 2, my first concert. More details will be given by the company tomorrow? I’m heading off to Thailand now~Watch out for the flu, everyone,” IU wrote.

Today’s announcement came as a surprise since IU’s agency, Loen Entertainment, didn’t mention anything about the scheduled concert. The only concert-type event IU was scheduled to appear this year was the “2012 Dream Concert,” which will be held on May 12.

Netizens who saw the tweet commented, “IU is so witty!” “Is this your solo concert?” and “I can’t wait to see the concert!”

Meanwhile, it was also announced today that IU will headline the star-packed lineup for the “Love You Korea, 2012 Dream Concert.” Other top acts to perform at the concert include: Girls’ Generation, DBSK, Kara, T-ara, IU, 2PM, BEAST, 2AM, Secret, miss A, MBLAQ, SISTAR, 4minute, Infinite, ZE:A, Davichi, K-Will, and Teen Top.
