IU colored Palette with her personality and landed her first No. 1 on Billboard’s World Albums chart. She is the first female K-pop star to top the chart this year.

1,000 copies were sold within a week after the album's release, which makes Palette the best-selling K-pop album in the United States this week, according to Billboard.

On Korea’s Gaon music chart alone, the album recorded 100 million streams and 30 million downloads as of today.

Lee Ji Eun says Palette was more challenging to produce than the 2015 Chat-Shire but much more rewarding as well. She surely sounds more comfortable in her own skin in Palette than in Chat-Shire.

In Palette, the Scarlet Heart: Ryeo actress confesses heartfelt thoughts on being 25 and explores many dimensions of love with artists like G-Dragon and Ohhyuk.

IU rewinds the happy memories and cuts ties with Kim Soo Hyun in this latest bittersweet Ending Scene m/v (lyrics):

G-Dragon guides IU through the rest of her twenties in this sassy Palette m/v (lyrics):

Lastly, IU and Ohhyuk play a couple who’ve fallen out of love in Can’t Love You Anymore (lyrics):

Though Lee Ji Eun deserves No. 1 on Billboard’s World Albums chart, charting high is not the singer’s aim. When asked what’s more important than ranking first, the singer said, “long-running.”
