Singer IU appeared as a guest at duo AKMU's 10th anniversary concert and received enthusiastic cheers.

AKMU held the second edition of '2024 AKMU 10th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT '10VE'' at KSPO DOME in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 16th.

An actor who appeared calling himself the officiant said, “AKMU Lee Chan-hyuk and Lee Soo-hyun promise to be with their fans as AKMU for 10 to 20 years or more until their black hair becomes red.” He added, “This officiant is the Academy (AKMU fandom) “On behalf of the people, I declare that the beautiful pledge has been successfully made,” he said, announcing the congratulatory song.

The main character of the congratulatory song that followed was singer IU. IU, who appeared singing 'The Meaning of You', caught everyone's attention wearing a pink one-piece dress with lace. The audience actively enjoyed the stage, showing off IU's cheering methods and even singing in unison.

After finishing the first song, IU began by saying, "There wasn't a single empty seat. It was filled. I, like you, am one of the fans who wants to sit here and watch the performance." He then introduced his relationship with AKMU, saying, “I came as a guest when my AKMU friends held their first concert.”

At the same time, IU said, "I feel so amazing that I was able to say hello to my family in a meaningful way on the 10th anniversary, as if my family was doing well. I saw these friends when they were 14 and 16. But then they became Korea's representative musicians and filled the gymnastics stadium. “I congratulate you so much,” he said. He then joked, “My performance is also fun, so please come a lot,” making people laugh.

Regarding the previous 'Falling' performance, IU said, "It's too bad they didn't include me in singing 'Falling'," and performed a live unaccompanied version of 'Falling', drawing cheers from the audience.

After finishing her comment, IU sang ‘Bleuming’ and went down to the backstage.

AKMU held a national tour 'AKMUTOPIA' over a period of about 3 months from November last year to January last year and concluded it. AKMU, which celebrated its 10th debut anniversary this year, released its third mini album 'LOVE EPISODE' with 'Hero' as the title song on the 3rd.
