She said she’s just like other people who admire IU’s talent, personality and music. Tang Wei’s decision to venture into the realm of music videos for the first time speaks volumes about IU’s influence and impact in the entertainment industry.

With Tang Wei representing the Chinese entertainment industry and IU representing Korea, this collaboration symbolizes the bridging of cultures through music and visual storytelling.
