Director Kim said, "(Through Netflix) I had to purchase the copyright to release 'Knee' worldwide, so I contacted IU. Then, IU wrote and composed the song herself, so I was very grateful to just write it (for free)." He told a joke.

He then explained, "I had a close relationship with IU in the past because I worked in the drama 'Dream High'."

Netizens who heard the news of IU's great consideration showed reactions such as "IU is cool," "I'll have to look up Lee Ji-eun's name again", and "It was a song that suited the scene so well".

The fantasy music drama 'Anna Sumanara' has been receiving a lot of attention by staying at the top of the Netflix TV program category around the world at the same time as it was released.
