Recently, there have been many opinions regarding my lyrics and although I’m aware of it, I’ve taken longer than I thought to gather my courage (to respond). Sorry that I’m late.
I’m sincerely sorry if people were emotionally hurt
My album “chat-shire” included songs that were created from the perspective of various characters from stories, based on what came to my mind and things that happened to the 23-year-old me.
“My Sweet Orange Tree” is a novel I really cherish. I swear I didn’t write the lyrics with the intention to sexually objectify a 5-year-old child,
What I said in an interview also caused many people to be surprised,
Prior to this, the sampling issue of the bonus track ‘twenty three’ was my fault as a producer, for not being careful enough to check the source of the samples used when arranging the song.
As this is the first album I took on as a producer, I was excited and being hungry for praise, I ended up being too greedy. It seems I’ve made many mistakes,
I’ll reflect and work harder and will definitely bring a more mature side of myself as IU,
