Fans suspect the song 'Eight' is dedicated by IU to her best friend, Sulli. On Wednesday (05/06) yesterday IU and BTS' Suga released their collaboration song titled 'Eight'.
After hearing the lyrics of the song and watching the music video, fans immediately speculated that this song was dedicated by IU to her late friend, Sulli, who had died at the end of 2019. In one of the lyrics of the song, IU said 'So are you happy now? Finally happy now?'
Many fans suspected that the lyrics were addressed to Sulli who has now abandoned everything and gone to a happier place.
Fans are more convinced of the allegation after seeing the animated figure of a woman in white dress riding a dragon in 'Eight music video'. IU's character seemed look at the woman's figure from the plane with a sad expression.

If this song is dedicated to Sulli then I won't be able to stop crying. She has no mole on her cheek and the way the animated IU smiled with tears in her eyes is so-— (ꜰᴀᴋᴇ ᴜᴀᴇɴᴀ) 𝓐𝓼𝓱 ෆ (@distinct_jieunx) May 6, 2020

Sulli is so lucky to have her as a friend and if Sulli could see this she must be so happy.
She also look a bit like Sulli. Ah the makeup artist of Sulli styled her. It suits her. pic.twitter.com/WFxmtrb2v2
I do believe that this song is dedicated to her best friends who already left peacefully. She smiles so hard until it shows that she's not.— pororo🐧 (@aphroroo_) May 6, 2020
Even her stylist for this mv is Sulli's. That's why her wardrobes are quite different compared to prior mvs. pic.twitter.com/npORcsbhNh
