Singer-songwriter Dean expresses his admiration for and desire to work with fellow singer-songwriter IU.
Known for 글쓰기 hit songs for EXO, VIXX, John Park, and Lee Hi, Dean talks about juggling songwriting demands with pursuing his own 노래 career. “Rather than songwriting, I am focusing on my activities as an artist,” Dean says. MC Yoo Hee Yeol responds, “So is that why 당신 rejected my [songwriting] request?”
Dean chooses 아이유 as an artist he hopes to write a song for some day. “You know how people 사랑 it when elephants do a trick wit their trunk? Well that’s not what the elephants intended. I think 아이유 is like that,” Dean says, as the audience laughs at the farfetched analogy.
He also sends a video letter to 아이유 saying, “I have a song I have written just for you.”
Meanwhile, this episode of “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” featuring Dean aired on June 4 at 12:20 a.m. KST on KBS 2TV.
