As was previously reported, IU released her first orginal composition ‘Hold My Hand’ (previously also called ‘Take My Hand’) for part 4 of the ‘Greatest Love of All’ drama OST on May 25th.

The response to this new OST has been explosive, immediately topping music charts the moment it was released. (*Note: Apparently, it caused some server problems as well, as can be seen from the Melon statistics below, at 2am, when the graph went off the charts.)

The next peak was at midnight, when the song was #1 on seven music charts, including Bugs, Cyworld, Daum, Naver, Melon, Mnet and Monk3y and #2 on Soribada. With the drama rising in popularity too, both the OST composed by IU and the drama are garnering a lot of interest.

[News] Yoon Sang “I regret composing the song ‘The Story Only I didn’t know’ for IU.

Singer/songwriter Yoon Sang revealed that he regrets composing the song ‘Story Only I Didn’t Know’ for IU.

On a recent episode of KBS Prime ‘Lee Geum Hee’s Special Meeting’, Yoon Sang made a guest appearance and expressed, “When I first saw IU on TV, her gaze was downcast” and “Therefore, I composed the ballad ‘Story Only I Didn’t Know’ for her to match that sad expression of hers.”

“But now thinking back about it, I feel slightly sorry for writing such a sad song for IU who has yet to even complete high school. However, this time when we had the chance to work together again for the EXPO 2012 Yeosu Korea theme song, fortunately I had the chance to give her a much brighter image by composing the song ‘Stories of the Sea’ for her,” said Yoon Sang, revealing his affections for his junior, IU.

Meanwhile, shown on this broadcast on May 27th is also the music life story of Yoon Sang for whom it has been 20 years since he debuted as a singer as well as what Sung Si Kyung, Yoon Jung Shin and other stars have to say about Yoon Sang’s image.
