IU Wins on “Inkigayo” Even Without Music Show Promotions


IU has been crowned the winner of last week’s “Inkigayo” with her latest title track “Twenty-Three.”

The winner announcement was postponed due to the November 1 episode being a prerecorded one with no live voting, and the No.1 artist was finally announced through SBS’ homepage on November 2.

Despite not having any music show promotions for her fourth mini album “Chat-Shire,” IU managed to take home last week’s “Inkigayo” trophy with “Twenty-Three.”  The song continues to top most online charts, and IU’s entire new album has been a huge commercial success.


The other contenders were Taeyeon with “I” and TWICE with “Like Ooh Aah.”

Congratulations to IU!
