I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND.

All other husbands have to step up their game.
I AM PUTTING YOU ALL ON NOTICE.

Because this is what Werepenguin just gave me. He saw the commission that the amazingly-sweet and wonderfully-talented @yliseryn did for me of Allura in my wedding dress, and this idea began to form in his mind.

And this? This isn’t just Allura in my wedding dress. It’s Shiro in Werepenguin’s suit & tie. That’s OUR cake with OUR cake topper. And then Louise, being the utter sweetheart she is, added the b&w images. And then Werepenguin asked her for color versions of THOSE.

And, on top of all of this, I now have a 20x30 METAL PRINT of that top image that I can hang in our home so everyone can see it. Because this is how happy the memory of our wedding day makes him, even 8 years out. (Well, almost 8 years; he gave this to me as an early anniversary present because he couldn’t stand to sit on it any longer.)

I cried when he gave it to me. I’m crying a bit now. I married the most wonderful man and he is absolutely the best thing in my life and if there’s anything that proves that it’s that I cannot come up with the words to describe how I feel.

IU winning Album of the Year at the Melon Music Awards 2017;

First of all, I want to thank all listeners who have been continuously listening to my album. Also, despite me still being a clumsy and lacking producer, I really want to thank IU team that has been staying by my side, trusting and following me all along. I want to say thank you to all brilliant and talented musicians, performers and people who’ve helped me to make my album ‘Palette’ even more amazing. On top of that, I’m really grateful to my family members who’ve been supporting me regardless of what I did or what criticisms I received from the public. Although we are not blood-related, I really want to thank Yoo Inna who’s my closest friend, my number #1 fan, my celebrity and my muse. And my Uaenas! Needless to say. Uaenas! Uaenas! Uaenas! Really really really just THANK YOU!! I think we’ve gotten closer especially this year, I will do well and make sure 2018 is a good year again. Also my speech is long right–There are so many things I want to say. This year I got to truly know the value of one album more than any other year. So not just my album, I’ve been paying attention, learning and listening to other artist’s albums. To all artists and staff who’ve worked so hard to produce good music and performance for the fans and public, to the point where they couldn’t eat and sleep well, I just want to tell you that “You’ve worked hard!” Lastly, what should I say? I will be a singer, a songwriter and a producer who considers the value of music more than the value of digitals. (translation).

I get very bored and restless if I feel that there isn’t anything really in the character for me to get my teeth into. I lose interest very quickly. That’s why I don’t like taking roles that oversimplify or over-objectify or oversexualise women, because I find it so unbelievably boring just to stand there and look good.
