"He is someone who has been supporting me and telling me I'm the best. He is also someone who I can trust and is adorable, sending heartfelt encouragement to me.

"Because you have a keen eye for my well-being, I'm sure you would know that I am in my emotionally stable and comfortable era. And I believe one of the reasons why I have been feeling more proud and passionate about my work recently is because there is a close good friend who gives me compliments.

Ayon pa kay IU, ngayong naging bukas siya tungkol sa pagkakaroon ng special someone ay nais niyang maging low-key ang relasyon nila.

Makakaasa rin daw ang kanyang fans na mas pagbubutihan niya ang trabaho.

"Thank you for hanging out with me and being my best friend for another year!! I won't be lazy this year too! I'll do my best.

"Happy new year again. UAENA, you'll wake up to a new year. Sleep tight. I love you."
