Looked like Olympic opening ceremony but it turned out to be IU’s solo concert

It has already been two weeks since IU invited 80,000 fans to her dream garden. 

IU, who dyed the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul with colors such as red, orange, white, emerald, purple, and pink, gave fans a one-of-a-kind concert. Fans also waved light sticks to cheer on IU, and IU linked the light sticks with mapping technology to fill the main stadium with various colors.

This scene was captured in the video of ‘Eight’ Live Clip (2022 IU Concert ‘The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun’), which was released on IU’s YouTube channel on the 30th.

 The intro of ‘Eight’ started without accompaniment. IU’s slender but powerful voice filled her main arena, and IU appeared with a doll-like visual. 

The audience’s sparkling light sticks and colorful fireworks made the concert look like a festival.

Although it was only a video of the opening stage lasting only 4 minutes, IU proved the quality of the concert with the stage of ‘Eight’.

Netizens left comments showing excitement, saying, “If you didn’t know, you’d think this was the Olympic opening ceremony, not the singer’s performance”, and “Quality isn’t a joke”, etc

Netizens present at the scene also recalled the feelings of that moment through video and recorded happy moments with reactions such as “It was the most emotional moment” and “IU’s concert was so great”, etc

On this day, IU performed ‘Eight’ against the backdrop of a pink and orange sunset and sang various hit songs such as ‘Palette’ and ‘Good Day’.

IU set up a grand concert with hundreds of drones flying in the sky for the ‘Out of Time’ stage. Using drones, she showed various scenes in the sky.

As the Olympic Stadium boasts a large scale, the cost of renting and setting up a stage is not too high. It is not known exactly how much IU invested in the concert, but it is estimated that IU earned 11.3 billion won from tickets for this concert.

Meanwhile, IU held a solo concert ‘The Golden Hour: Under the Orange Sun’ at the Olympic Main Stadium in Jamsil Sports Complex, Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 17th and 18th of last month.

IU, the first Korean female singer to enter the Olympic Stadium as a solo concert, met her fans at an offline concert for the first time in three years since ‘Love Poem’.
