IU told her fans during the G-Dragon’s guest appearance at her Palette tour that she received a very special gift from him.
“I’m talking about this for the first time, but I received an amazing present from G-Dragon. I was so thankful that when I called to say thank you, I felt really humbled. It was that good of a present.”
Now, it’s well known that IU and G-Dragon have an especially good professional relationship.
IU even gave him a fridge full of soju so he can ease his mind before his military service.
And G-Dragon featured in IU’s hit song “Palette”.
And there is no doubt that IU must receive many presents on a regular basis from her loving fans — but when G-Dragon gave her this gift, it stood out even in the midst of that long list.
“I wondered if I deserve such an amazing present. I was so surprised.”
It was a personally revamped and reworked version of IU’s Palette!
IU described the present for her fans.
“I received a package a few days ago. It felt like a CD. So at first I thought what CD is it, maybe it’s a DVD?
But then the feel and the shape of the CD was too familiar.
When I opened it, it was my Palette album, personally decorated with flower petal stickers from cover to cover.”
G-Dragon also took the time to explain why he decided to give IU this particular gift.
“I was surprised myself while making it myself.
I received a special gift from IU before, so I wanted to give her something special. Then since the concept of the album is a palette, I decided to do something along those lines and to decorate it.”
The gift really showed off both the giver and the recipient’s tremendous creative sides!
Here’s to hoping that their lovely friendship continues!
