Continuing from last week, IU sat down with lyricist Kim Eana to discuss the inspiration behind her music and her latest album ‘Palette’. She revealed, “It’s been 10 years since I’ve started writing in a diary. I started in my second year of middle school.”
IU added, “However, I don’t write in it every day now. It’s a change I welcome. The reason I wrote in a diary was because I was anxious. I started writing in one to leave evidence that I lived. I’m writing less and less since last year. I think it’s an optimistic change. Even if I don’t write in my diary, I feel comfortable. I only do so if something special happens or if I’m going through a rough time.”
