In order to make up for cutting her promotion of the third mini-album REAL short, IU is returning with the release of REAL+.

It’s what they call a “mini plus album”, which contains three new tracks (two songs) that act as an epilogue to the REAL mini-album. It’s basically what would’ve been added if they’d released a repackaged album.

I actually prefer the “mini plus” concept to a repackaged album when I’ve already bought the original album. Repackaged albums feel more like milking money from the fans, though they’re great if you didn’t buy the first edition.

Track list:

  1. 나만 몰랐던 이야기 (The Story Only I Didn’t Know)
  2. 잔혹동화 (Cruel Fairy Tale)
  3. 나만 몰랐던 이야기 (With Pianist 김광민)

The following youtube clip is a preview of the music video for The Story Only I Didn’t Know, which features actress Park Bo-young.
