On the May 11 broadcast of MBC Music’s “Picnic,” IU appeared as the guest and lyricist Kim Eana interviewed her about the overwhelming success of her fourth album.
Kim Eana asked, “How do you feel about the huge love you’ve been getting for your fourth album, ‘Palette’?”
IU replied, “It feels really nice, of course. It feels nice, so that’s good, but I also feel lonely.”
At that, Kim Eana, who has worked with IU for a very long time, said, “I think you feel lonely when you do well. You need to learn to enjoy your success.”
IU added, “I do like it when I do well. I do try [to enjoy it], but I still feel lonely again this time.”
