Though IU was previously reported to be making a comeback in April, she was recently cast in the drama 'Producer', which will push back her music schedule. Loen Entertainment announced on March 10, "She'll continue with the recording of the new album while she's filming for the drama. The promotions will go on after the drama wraps up."
In 'Producer', Gong Hyo Jin will play the role of a 10-year producer of a music program with an abrasive personality, while IU will play a diva-like singer with a cold attitude. Actor Kim Soo Hyun has also been confirmed.
