The video was released on May 30, 2022. During the conversation, DK mentioned how he has been a long-time fan of IU and has been listening to her music since he was a child. He also recalled sending her a friend request on Cyworld, a Korean social media network. He said,

“I was IU’s fan. When I was young, I would go to your mini homepage. I thought if I made a friend request, you would accept it.”

When IU inquired whether he was okay because she had declined his request, DK shared that at the time he was really upset, but now when when he thinks about it, he realises it's understandable.
