Jung Seung Hwan’s Song With Lyrics Written By IU Tops Charts + IU Hints At Possible Cover
Jung Seung Hwan is topping charts with his latest song!
On December 5 at 6 p.m. KST, Jung Seung Hwan released his new track “My Christmas Wish.” The song was composed by Kim Jae Hwi with lyrics written by IU. As of December 6 at 9 a.m. KST, the song charted No. 1 on Korean realtime charts including Melon, Genie, Bugs, Vibe (Naver Music), Olleh Music, and Soribada.
Jung Seung Hwan took to Instagram to thank his fans for their support. He wrote, “My thank you message is late. I had a busy, happy day today. I’m currently waiting for the live broadcast of ‘Music Forest’ (literal title) and am trying to write down a couple words before today ends. Working on this song was especially difficult, but I had such an indescribably exciting and joyful time while working on this song as it came to life. It still doesn’t feel real that the song that was created like that has been released into the world.”
He added, “I first want to thank everyone who always waits for me and cherishes my music. Thank you so much to everyone who led and added their valuable strength and feelings to a lacking person and song. Thanks to you, I was able to continue singing and I’m going to continue to do so. I’ll prepare so that I can successfully complete next week’s concert in good health! I hope it will be a warm, joyful winter for everyone. Thank you once again!”

감사 인사가 너무 늦었습니다. 나름대로 바쁘고 행복한 하루를 보내고, 이제 음악의 숲 생방을 기다리며 오늘이 가기 전에 서둘러 몇 자 적으려 해요. 이번 작업은 유독 힘이 들기도 했지만 작업이 진행되고 소중히 만든 곡들에 살이 더해질 수록 이루 말할 수 없는 설렘과 행복한 시간을 만끽하곤 했습니다. 그렇게 만들어진 곡들이 세상에 들려지고 있음이 아직도 실감이 나지 않네요. 늘 저를 기다려주시고 제 음악을 아껴주시는 모든분들께 가장 먼저 감사합니다. 부족한 사람과 노래에 기꺼이 소중한 힘과 마음 보태주시고 이끌어주신 모든 분들께 역시 무한히 감사드립니다. 덕분에 계속해서 노래할 수 있었어요. 또 앞으로도 그럴 거구요. 다음주에 있을 공연까지 무사히 잘 마칠수 있도록 건강하게 준비하고 있을게요! 모두에게 따듯하고 행복한 겨울이 되길 바라요. 다시 한 번 감사합니다!!
Celebrating the good news, IU also took to Instagram to share her thoughts. She wrote, “Jung Seung Hwan is really (seriously) the best.” She added hashtags, “My Christmas Wish,” “I really need to cover this,” and composer “Kim Jae Hwi.”
This is Jung Seung Hwan’s second song composed by Kim Jae Hwi with lyrics written by IU following his 2018 track “The Snowman.” IU previously showed her support by uploading an acoustic cover of that song.

Congratulations to Jung Seung Hwan and IU!
