Lee Hyori – Korean Singer
Lee Hyori is a successful female vocalist from Korea. She is 34 and is a woman of many talents including singing, dancing, acting, designing and modeling while her musical talents range in genre from Pop to R&B and Hip-Hop.
She started out as lead member of Pop group Fin.K.L in 1998. Together they became one of Korea’s most popular all time groups with an abundance of number one hits including their first big seller ‘To My Boyfriend’.
In 2003 Lee Hyori decided to move onto a solo career, which has turned out to be very fruitful for her. After the release of Hyori’s debut solo album ‘Stylish’ she was nominated for a large number of awards at the Daesangs, South Korea’s most highly sort after music awards and in fact won seven of them.
When being the most sort after female in Korea wasn’t enough for Lee Hyori she decided to up her game further by embarking on an acting career starting in 2005 with series ‘Three Leaf Clover’. It was a flunk.
Its not all been sunshine and daisies for Lee Hyoris career, her single ‘Get Ya’, was branded plagiarism of a Britney Spears song. She made her second acting debut in a Drama called, ‘If in love… Like them’, which was banned from South Korean TV by the Korean Broadcasting Committee for not adhering to advertising requirements. She also, nearly fell through the roof of the set during the filming of this drama!
Presumably she was feeling downhearted about her not so fruitful acting career so in 2008 she decided to move onto TV hosting. Shows included Happy Together and Time Machine. She also decided to have an on set documentary made about herself with the idea it would allow the people of Korea to get to know her more personally and break the idealistic view some people may hold.
After a two year break from her musical career Lee Hyori came back full force with her album H Logic, but the success was short lived because she was faced with yet another plagiarism battle to which she admitted defeat.
After this huge set back she stopped her singing career and TV appearances but continued to keep herself in the public eye line by writing for newspapers and soon after was discovered to be writing singles and accepting donations for animal welfare centre’s. In 2011 she was described as being one of the nations top animal rights activists. Conscience or marketing, she is still making $650,000 per year, away from being your average Jane.
