Welcome back to another installment of For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.
IU, the powerhouse soloist, recently celebrated her tenth debut anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, she released a single – “Bbi Bbi” – as a gift for her fans. IU’s enviable discography has no dearth of versatility and presents one of the most cohesive careers in K-pop. From the retro concept in Modern Times to the remakes in A Flower Bookmark, IU has consistently guarded her top position as a female soloist. Her candid lyrics for “Twenty-Three” and “Palette” as well as her brutally honest attack on the sexualizing of minors in “Zeze” are a testament to her talent both as a singer and a songwriter. The following images trace the evolution of IU’s discography through her stellar decade in the Korean music scene:
