IU has shared that she is working on new music, although she currently has no plans to release anything soon.

The South Korean singer-actress recently spoke to Korea JoongAng Daily about the upcoming film Broker, in which she stars in as a single mother. The film recently made its premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it received a 12-minute standing ovation from the audience.

During the interview, IU spoke about whether she was working on the much-anticipated follow-up to her 2021 album ‘Lilac’. “I am writing something,” she said, before revealing that she does not “have any immediate plans to carry it out”.

However, IU did give fans a hint about what fans can expect from her next release. “It would be my first project since I turned 30, so I want to do something that’s different from what I did in my 20s,” she noted.

“I keep crossing things off my list – even though it may be interesting, I would think I had already done something like that in the past, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to showcase my next songs,” she explained. “I want to show a different perspective, a different story from what I did before, in my next work.”

During a press conference at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where Broker had premiered, IU discussed the difficulties she experienced playing the role of a mother for the first time. “It was challenging to portray So-young because she was a mother with such a dark and depressing past,” she admitted,

Featuring a star-studded cast – including Song, Lee, IU, Bae Doo-na (The Silent SeaSense8) and Gang Dong-won (Peninsula) – Broker follows Sang-hyun, who sets up a baby box where parents are able to anonymously leave their babies for him find new parents for.
