IU addresses this day as a “day of battle.” She continues to bring up that it breaks her heart to know that many had to study and work hard in this terrible pandemic: “Thinking I studied hard in such an environment, it’s heartbreaking.”

She brings supportive words to her viewers declaring she’s “proud” and “more supportive than ever.” IU also makes sure to advise people to wear their masks.

IU wraps up her encouraging message informing those not to have regrets and that you must take risks because you will come out stronger! She uses the Korean proverb “호랑이굴에 들어가도 정신만 차리면 산다고” which means that even when in a dangerous situation, you can survive if you stay calm and cool.

She sends all her luck towards Uaena’s and sends them a virtual hug: “Unnie/Noona will give you a hug. Pat you on the back.”
