IU’s “Autumn Morning” has found itself back on the music charts, following a selfie the singer posted to greet fans on her Instagram.

On Monday, IU posted a photo of herself on her official Instagram staring into the camera wearing a pink blouse, captioned, “It’s time to listen to my ‘Autumn Morning’ again.” Some million fans liked the post, one saying, “I also thought of ‘Autumn Morning’ this morning!”

”Autumn Morning” was included in the EP “A Flower Bookmark #2,” released in September last year. The track was a cover of the original version by veteran singer Yang Hee-eun in January 1991. IU’s style added to the original soft lyrics produced a track that touched many hearts.

As the artist has some 6.5 million followers, her mention of the song prompted a sharp upward trend in its rank as of Tuesday at 9 a.m. It hit No. 62 on the Melon music chart, No. 84 on Genie, No. 99 on Bugs and No. 100 on Soribada. The song was not on the charts before IU posted the comment.

IU will soon be marking the 10th anniversary of her debut with fan meetings. She will hold a solo fan meeting on Saturday at Universal Art Center in Seoul.
