IU’s solo concert will be released as a movie in Korea?

"The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun", an IU solo concert which was held last year, is expected to be released as a movie.

According to a recent announcement by the Film Classification and Rating Committee (hereinafter FCRC), CJ CGV has applied for the review for the domestic theatrical release of IU’s “The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun” (hereinafter referred to as “The Golden Hour”). 


Earlier, on July 11th of last month, FCRC had already received a review and granted a general audience rating for the release of “The Golden Hour” on Blu-ray/DVD.

Meanwhile, in 2022, IU became the first South Korean female singer to hold a solo concert at the Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium for two days.

The Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium has a seating capacity of 69,950 seats, including standing, and can accommodate up to a maximum of 100,000 people, making it the largest performance venue in South Korea. It is reported that 130,000 spectators attended IU’s concerts held there last year.


At that time, the concert gained attention as IU’s first concert in three years since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ticket reservation server experienced overwhelming traffic with over 430,000 people trying to access it simultaneously on the first day of ticket sales.

Meanwhile, IU is currently filming the drama “You Have Done Well”. The drama, which stars IU and Park Bo Gum as the main characters, is a new work by writer Im Sang Choon, who is behind the success of “Fight for My Way” and “When the Camellia Blooms”.
