Composer Lee Min Su thinks IU could go even higher
Hit composer Lee Min Su praised IU’s vocal talent in an interview with Star News.
Lee Min Su is the well known name behind many of the current hits, such as Brown Eyed Girls‘ “Abracadabra,” IU and Seulong’s duet track, “Nagging,” and most recently, IU’s “Good Day.”
“Good Day” features a fairytale-like atmosphere with the feel of a musical due to the elaborate horn session in the background. The ‘three level octave’ that IU manages to reach near the end of the song has already stunned music listeners, giving birth to many hilarious parodies.
The composer expressed, “I worried a lot since she had to sing at such a high pitch for a long time in one breath, but we both had a lot of fun with it while recording. She was amazing and got it done in just three tries. I believe she can go even higher.”
He continued, “She’s still young so her voice can still change, but I believed this was the age at which she could best handle the three level octave, so I made sure to include it in the song. It’s the highlight of her song, basically.”
IU’s third mini-album, “Real,” is already ranking in on major music charts and taking over search portals for her singing talent. The industry was busy praising IU even before her comeback, with plenty of big names in the industry lending a hand and personally promoting the young singer themselves. Some include Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Hyung Seok, Choi Kap Won, Shinsadong Tiger, Jun Seung Woo, and PJ.
IU ordered to protect her vocal cords
Singer IU has been ordered to protect her vocal cords, due to the stress they’ve been straining under between her busy comeback activities and her school life.
IU’s agency, Loen Entertainment, revealed on December 15th, “IU is having difficulty managing her vocal cords while promoting her album and attending school. As it is a song that emphasizes a high pitch, a lot of people have been raising voices of concern over whether it’s putting too much strain on them. We are taking special care of it.”
After debuting last year with “Missing Child,” IU showed signs of suffering from vocal cord nodules. Although she recovered, many are fearful of it possibly returning and even getting worse, especially with her current busy schedule. “Good Day“ features a high pitched note towards the end of the song (nicknamed the ‘three level octave’), and it’s been revealed to forcing much strain on her throat.
Another representative continued, “IU is adamant about performing live. Even when she is not in a good physical condition, she remains stubborn on live performances. We’re currently doing everything we can to protect her throat and are working hard to make sure she gets enough rest.”
