iu performs and dedicates "gloomy clock" in jonghyun's memory



at the singaporean stop of her ongoing dlwlrma tour, iu altered her usual setlist to include a performance of "a gloomy clock" in dedication of jonghyun. "a gloomy clock", which was included on her modern times album, is a duet with jonghyun that he both composed and wrote the lyrics to. jonghyun had originally written the song for himself, but after sending a demo to iu for her opinion, she got back him the day that followed and asked if she could buy the song from him for herself. jonghyun and iu became close friends after they were both brought into the fixed debut cast of immortal song 2 in 2011. during the performance, iu changed her usually purple microphone to a pearl aqua one, and changed a part of the lyrics to say "종현이 빛이나" (jonghyun shines). after the performance, the melody for jonghyun's "하루의 끝 (end of a day)" was also included in the piano solo section of "dear name" (which can be listened to here).

we're coming up on a year in less than two days. i thought this was a beautiful and apt tribute to jonghyun, and touching considering how close they were so i figured it'd be nice to share for those who haven't seen it. if any other tributes come up in the following days i'll share them as well. take care, everyone!
