On December 12, the idol singer posted a video clip and photos via Instagram showing off the unique customized present from the world-renowned star. It was a customized 'Palette' album, in which G-Dragon handmade himself.
The photos consisted of a 'reformed' version of IU's 4th album, painted and decorated in shades of red while donning a giant '25' symbolizing her age.
Inside the customized album were colorful drawings and artwork created by G-Dragon in addition to fancy flower stickers.
Previously, on December 9, G-Dragon made a special guest appearance at one of IU's concerts held in Seoul's Jamsil Stadium.
IU had shared that she received this 'surprise gift' from the Big Bang member backstage after thanking him for appearing on her show.
She explained, "He (G-Dragon) purchased my album and took the time to customize the exterior and interior sides of the album. There is even lacquer coating and stickers on it. This is so pretty. Is it okay for me to even have this wonderful gift?"
G-Dragon commented, "Since I received a gift from IU first, I thought I should do something special for her as well. And her album is 'Palette' so I decided to create something that fit the title."
