IU is currently busy preparing for her Japanese debut in 2012. Currently she is finishing up her promotions for “You & I” and this year one of her main goals is a successful Japanese debut.
In the beginning of 2012, representative of Loen Entertainment met up with representatives of EMI Music Japan and made plans regarding the debut album. Although a final decision has not yet been made, it appears that as the Japanese debut song, “Good Day” is the strongest candidate. The time of release will be sometime around March.
In November 2011, Loen Entertainment had stated that IU would have a Japanese showcase in January and release a single in February, but concrete plans regarding her debut did not come to fruition due to her busy schedule.
On January 24, IU will reveal her debut single at the Japanse showcase.
