IU puts her cute image on the shelf and returns to her roots with the song The Story Only I Didn’t Know (나만 몰랐던 이야기), which is an emotional ballad. REAL+, which contains this song and Cruel Fairy Tale (잔혹동화), complements the REAL mini-album well with its contrasting theme.

The music video for The Story Only I Didn’t Know features actress Park Bo-young, whom you might recognize from movies such as Scandal Makers and ESP Couple.

Although the music video is very emotional with tears flowing, I found it more moving to watch IU perform the song on stage. I will select a good live performance for you guys and post it later.
