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.
