Seriously? Why IU has not been in any musical yet?
Fans are mesmerized upon hearing this Japanese single of IU. The song is titled "The Age Of The Cathedrals" and was released in February, 2013 as her Japanese single.
The song is a remake of Bruno Pelletier's which he originally performed in French-Canadian musical "Notre-Dame De Paris" in 2000. IU's version however is very emotional and her vocal color is dynamic and it's like the song is made for her distinct vocals.
You can imagine IU singing this song in a musical while listening to it. She needs to be in a musical seriously!
