[News] Cho PD, ''IU is no prodigy, she is constantly putting in effort''

IU's first original composition, "Hold My Hand", was previously reported as receiving a lot of attention for its all-kill on the major online music charts.

Even before the track was released, it was a hot issue and once the track was made available, in just 2 days, it topped the charts of various music sites and achieved an all-kill.

Cho Young Cheol Producer from IU's agency, Loen Entertainment, expressed, "IU is no prodigy, she is constantly putting in effort. With her rising popularity and schedules flooding in, it would be normal for her to feel slightly lazy to put in new efforts, but the amount of effort that IU puts in to compose songs by herself is remarkable."

"Although there are many areas that she is still lacking in, IU herself is well aware of that and working extra hard as a result. That's the reason I'm looking forward to IU's progress in future," he added.
