Apparently, Ivy isn't just a beautifully sexy woman who can dance and sing live perfectly - she's got a lot of writing talent, as well.

 

On the June 18 installment of KBS 2TV's '1 vs 100', MC Han Suk Joon stated to her, "I heard you used to write lyrics".

 

Ivy revealed, "I haven't done it recently, but the fact that I composed under a pseudonym some years back become belatedly known, and it became a hot issue recently. I used a pseudonym on purpose, and I donated 100% of the royalty money. But the artists I wrote for promote globally, so it was a large sum of money for the royalties. I didn't know it was going to be that much."

 

Can you guess who the 'global' artists were? They're none other than Girls' Generation and SHINee! She wrote the beautiful lyrics to Girls' Generation's "Dear Mom" and SHINee's "Last Gift"! Although neither were title songs that were actively promoted, both songs are fan favorites and noted especially for their heartfelt lyrics.

 

Maybe Ivy should consider pursuing this further, because she's got such a talent for it!

If I'm not mistaken.. It's first brought up by Tiffany when she became a guest in Strongheart along with Ivy (ep 127-128).
She said ivy put an alias in the album, she use "lighthouse" as her alias.

Well that's weird.

I own SNSD's Gee album that has Dear Mom as a track, and Ivy's name wasn't credited for the lyrics. Credits were given to "The Lighthouse(Xperimental Production)"... unless Ivy was a part of that. But I don't see why she would take full credits for the lyrics if SM didn't acknowledge her?

oh oops... based from the other comments, Ivy was a part of "The Lighthouse" or something O_O I don't see why she didn't just use her original name though, since she wrote them by herself.

The time she wrote Dear Mom was also the time she was taking a break from stardom because everyone hated her due to her scandal. She said she wanted to remain anonymous, so she used the name "The Lighthouse" instead. They talked about this in the episode with Ivy and SNSD on Strong Heart.
