IU was honored with 5 awards at the “Melon Music Awards 2021”, which was broadcast live online on Dec 4th. IU won 2 Grand Prize for the “Artist of the Year” and “Album of the Year”.
She even won the “Top 10 Best Female Solo” category and the “Best Songwriter” award. IU said during her speech, “Deep inside, I was actually expecting to receive this much again at such a big award ceremony, but I was not sure at all, which is why I have said all I wanted to say earlier before going down the stage. Thank you for giving me such a big award once again.”
“The ‘Artist of the Year’ award is a really heavy title. All the artists and staff are showing their best performance, but I’m the one holding this award. I’m grateful to other artists as well. I will work harder and harder next year, using the weight of this award as my driving force. All artists, you have worked hard throughout this year,” she thanked and encouraged everyone.
