South Korean singer, songwriter and actress Lee Ji-eun, popularly known as IU, has alerted her fanclub, Indonesian Uaenas, about her first-ever concert in Jakarta.

“Indonesian Uaenas~ Be ready to meet IU for her first ever concert […] in Jakarta […],” IME Productions Indonesia tweeted on Thursday.

The concert will be staged at Tennis Indoor Senayan Jakarta on Dec. 28 to 29 as part of the 2019 IU Tour “<Love, Poem>”, which kicked off in Gwangju on Nov. 2.

A statement made available to The Jakarta Post said IU would perform music from various genres, including disco, jazz, pop ballads and R&B for Indonesian Uaenas to enjoy.

IU commemorated the 10th anniversary of her debut in October 2018, when she released the single “BBibbi”, attracting over 1 million unique listeners on Korea’s largest music site Melon within 16 hours of its release. “BBibbi” also made it to the top five of Billboard’s World Digital Songs Chart as well as the Gaon Digital Chart.

IU recently played the character Jang Man Weol in the fantasy mystery drama Hotel del Luna, said to be a commercial success.

Tickets to the 2019 IU Tour  will be available through Traveloka starting on Nov. 27 at 2 p.m. Prices range from Rp 1 million (US$ 70.91) for a “bronze” seat to Rp 2.4 million for a “diamond” seat. (mut)
