Rain appeared on the V app for a live show titled “Break-Up-Today Talk,” broadcasting from Malaysia where he was to perform a concert.

"In about 18 minutes, (my new single) will release across all online channels,” said Rain. “I want to tell you about the song ‘Let’s Break Up Today,’ that it’s a song that I worked very hard to achieve.”

Rain duets with Jo Hyuna of Urban Zakapa for the song.

“I was always a fan of Urban Zakapa, I have been wanting to collaborate with the singer Jo Hyuna for some time. She wrote the song, and although we wrote the lyrics together, it’s strongly imbued with her colors.

“So this song is about lovers, and their unchanging nature. Lovers always fight for the same reasons, declare to break up their relationship for the same reasons, the repeating themes, and despite the conflict, they have difficulties actually leaving each other.”

Rain went on to explain the five songs included in his mini-album. One is a hip-hop piece, and another he described as a good piece for a freshly broken-up man to sing at a karaoke.

“I have many plans to appear on TV programs,” Rain said. The veteran singer will collaborate with budding idols on “The Unit” TV on Friday. He will also hold a show to mark his return on Dec. 2 on KBS. Rain will take the opportunity to also sing the hits that made him popular.

IU shared the behind-the-scenes footage of her concerts in Busan and Gwangju via the V app Friday.

IU’s performance in Busan took place on Nov. 3, and Gwangju on Nov. 11

Before going on stage in Busan, in the green room, IU did a goofy dance, saying, “This helps me alleviate nervousness!”

“I’m in Busan to eat gukbap,” IU joked. “I didn’t know pork gukbap could taste so healthy. I felt I could become wholesome. I feel like I can sing better after that gukbap.”

IU blazed through her newly released and old hit songs for four hours. Dean appeared on the stage with IU as her guest to sing “I Can’t Love You Anymore.”

For IU’s “Heart,” fans sang the lyrics back to IU in unison, bringing the singer much joy.

In Gwangju, IU was proud to continue her colorful guest list, “I always bring amazing guests to my performances. You can cheer louder for the guest singers, it’s OK, I don’t mind.”

IU sang “Marshmellow” with Zico. “Do you know, ‘Marshmallow’ is originally the song I sang with Zico?” IU quizzed the audience. “Before Zico debuted, when he was 18 and I was 17, we recorded the song together.”

During the heated concert, IU came down from stage to high-five fans. She sang more than 30 songs in Gwangju.

The 24-year-old will hold her next concerts in Hong Kong, Cheongju and Seoul.
