Not even through the second month of 2020, the Total Variety Network (tvN) is already setting domestic and international viewing records for their K-dramas.
Though most people will know Crash Landing on You as being one of the more popular K-dramas of the year, there will be others who will remember it for its original soundtrack (OST).
This is especially true with the song I Give You My Heart by IU. After its release, the song became a hit both domestically and internationally, soaring to the top of Korean music charts and international iTunes charts.
In short, I Give You My Heart by IU is a runaway hit. Now it has earned one of the highest accolades in Korean music, a Perfect All-Kill (PAK).
Congratulations to IU and her song I Give You My Heart
Instiz, the company behind the Korean international music chart iChart, broke the news of IU earning a PAK for I Give You My Heart. She received the accolade last Monday.

A PAK in Korean music is when a song hits number one on all the daily and realtime regional music charts (MelOn, Genie, Bugs, Soribada, Flo) and number one for the weekly and realtime national music chart (iChart).
So far this year, only one other artist has earned a PAK, and that is Zico. His single Any Song earned the first PAK of the year back in January.
Queen of Perfect All-Kills
It is no surprise that IU would earn a Perfect All-Kill. Throughout her career, she earned 18 PAKs if people include the two before Instiz was established.
And if people want to include the time she was featured in Epik High’s Love Story, that makes 19.
As for official PAKs in which she is the primary performer/singer, here is the list of all 16 songs.
- The Story Only I Didn’t Know
- You and I
- The Red Shoes
- My Old Story
- Through the Night
- Can’t Love You Anymore
- Autumn Morning
- Love Poem
- I Give You My Heart
