On September 7, IU unveiled the lastest episode of her YouTube show 'Palette' featuring Kim Sejeong.
Immediately after sitting down on her seat, Kim Sejeong told IU while blushing, "This is a pretty widely-known fact, but I'm a huge fan of yours."
Nodding, as if IU knew that, she said, "Yeah, I know, because you've mentioned that on a lot of shows before."
She made an interesting suggestion after that, "There was something I really wanted to do when I met you. I want to make eye contact with you for 10 seconds, without saying any words. Can we please do that?"
IU was like, "Oh, of course! We can for sure!", making Kim Sejeong smile ear to ear.
But as soon as they locked their eyes, Kim Sejeong was unable to control the tears that were welling up in her eyes.
Kim Sejeong seemed overwhelmed by the fact that she was sitting in the same room with a person whom she had long admired.
She excitedly continued, "Do you remember posting my cover of your song on your social media? It almost felt like a dream then. I honestly couldn't ask for more."
IU explained why she posted Kim Sejeong's cover on her social media, "I watched your cover, and I totally fell in love with it. You sounded amazing! I loved the cover, so I had to post it."
Seeming happy, Kim Sejeong commented, "Thank you. It was all thanks to you that I was able to improve my singing skills. I used to copy the way your sang. I still do."
