Artist Welcome meeting IU
Voice: I see you have many global fans.
Please say a few words on attending MAMA this year.

IU: This is the first year that I’m attending MAMA since I debuted, so I’m really looking forward to it
and yesterday, during the rehearsal, there was a lot of thought put into preparing the stages, so I felt quite touched.
They allowed each artist up to one hour to rehearse each,
so I worked hard rehearsing as well and I think I’ll do a good job today.

Voice: Could you tell us more about what kind of collaboration you’ll be performing with Seo Taiji?

IU: It’s my second time performing ‘Sogyeokdong’.
I first did it at my sunbae’s comeback concert, but I was really nervous then.
I think I’ll be less nervous and do a better job today.
The stage is really impressive and cool so please look forward to it.

2014 MAMA Red Carpet - IU

MC: Currently live at Hong Kong Asia-World Expo is the 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards Red Carpet. Shall we see which star has arrived next on the red carpet? Entering now is IU! She’s entering now amidst lots of cheers from the males and fans. I listen a lot to IU’s music as well. Not only does she have good looks, but she has matured through collaborations with many singers like Kim Changwan and Seo Taiji sunbaenims. I’m looking forward to what kind of healing song she will be singing for us today. Just like her mature style of music, she’s dressed maturely today and posing by the photo wall. She really looks like a goddess or a swan with her long train. She looks really pretty. Welcome, IU! Nice to meet you. Ah, she’s so pretty. Nice to meet you. Please make your way over here. It’s a pity that you haven’t been able to attend MAMA previously due to your schedules, how do you feel walking the red carpet today?

IU: I’m really happy to be able to perform at such a big and great stage. Since it’s my first time attending MAMA, I’ll bring great performances for everyone.

MC: You’ve performed a special stage for MAMA today as well, could you give us a small hint what it will be about?

 IU: I’ll be singing a duet with a really cool male singer. And it’s not just one. Please look forward to the performances.

MC: I’m really looking forward to them. The night of MAMA has begun now in Hong Kong, how do you feel?

 IU: I’ll work hard for my ‘debut’ stage.

MC: Is there a song that would suit tonight’s mood?

IU: Well.. perhaps it’s because of the weather, ‘Sogyeokdong’ comes to my mind.

MC: Many artistes like the song ‘Sogyeokdong’. I’ll look forward to your performance during the actual awards ceremony. Thank you. Please walk this way.

Song Seung Hun giving IU a rose at MAMA
SSH: In 2014, it’s the hottest… and most popular song. Actually, because of this song, I learnt about the slang word, ‘Some’. 'Some' guy, 'Some' girl, having 'something' special going on with someone. It has become a slang and trend keyword that transcends all generations. See this rose? In fact, tonight, at this place where Asia’s top stars are gathered, I also have someone in mind. Listening to this person’s songs, I’ve received comfort and consolation. Who will it be? Sorry… In order to express my gratitude… It’s IU!
