I am going home now after a long talk with my manager while having dinner! I was really into those things lately - the meaning and meaninglessness of life, what I wait for as I live everyday, and sometimes I feel as though living is simply passing time by. It is a true relief that I was able to see your play during these times. The passage that the bundle Lucky carried around carried sand in it made me feel empty, sad, and scared. It was a sad piece that gave me the chills. Thank you. You were really fabulous today like always. My father is the best!! :)

His words show his affection and trust towards IU.
 
The heartwarming story touched the audience, while once again proving why IU has such a great image among fellow celebrities.
 
She truly cares for the people around her, even behind the camera. Their real relationship is very moving, which is probably why their touching interaction in the drama brought tears to many people too.
