IU Talks about Personal Habits and How She Deals with Insomnia
In some previous interviews, IU has mentioned her sleeping problem several times. She even stated that her song “Knee”, which she wrote, is the representation of how she’s dealing with her insomnia. In the lyric line of “Knee” IU tells the story about what she feels, in where she always feels on guard which makes it difficult to fall asleep.
In IU’s GQ Interview she stated that she doesn’t really know why she always feels on guard. However, since her sleeping problem started in her early 20s, it was the peak of her career. She might think that being on a busy schedule, the pressure to always stay alert and ready to work anytime is the main reason. Without she even realizes it, her body started to adapt to her daily activity and form a specific mechanism that affects her sleeping pattern.
Speaking of “Knee” a song that IU composed based on her own experience with sleeping problems, fans are wondering whether this song is her personal sleeping song. Well, the answer is actually a bit surprising.

Well, the answer is not “Knee”, instead, she stated and even recommended a song, which is EXO D.O’s “That’s Okay”. This song has been her healing and bedtime song since the massage of the song is really strong. She even cries sometimes listening to the song.
