Why Did It Take IU 12 Years To Finally Get The Microphone Of Her Dreams?

She had to brag about her microphones.

When IU held her 2019 IU Tour Concert Love, Poem in Gwangju, she took quite a bit of time bragging about her (at the time) brand new microphone.

Between performances, IU announced that she got a new custom microphone in glossy black.

She then went on to explain why it’s so special and why it took 12 years to get her dream microphone.

My dream has always been to get a black glossy microphone. It has always been my dream, but every time I went to get one, I always thought a bit of color would be nice.

— IU

IU also added that this was her 10th microphone and that she wanted to get it after becoming more stable and having a sizable microphone collection already.

She continued to joke that this is an impressive accomplishment and that she’s proud of it.

You need to get rid of your materialistic ways to make this decision. It doesn’t look like you’re very impressed, but ask all the other singers. This was a very impressive decision.

— IU

Ahead of this new purchase, IU has always been known for her colorful custom microphones.
