Hyori Lee (이효리), also written as Lee Hyori, Lee Hyolee, and Lee Hyo-ri, was the youngest of three children born to her parents. She is a k-pop singer who was once a member of the K-pop group Fin.K.L. (Fine Killing Liberty). She was discovered while taking pictures in a photo booth and was made into the leader of Fin.K.L. despite being the last member to be picked. Hyori was chosen to be the leader due to her incredibly beautiful look, amazing dance skills, and strong vocals.
Hyori Lee is active in many commercials (called CFs). She represents Samsung, FR Jeans, GGPX New York, Biotherm Korea, G-Market, Dove (company), Delmonte and Samsachun. She also starred in a drama series entitled Three Leaf Clover, however, her acting endeavor was unsuccessful, as the series garnered pretty low ratings.
Her debut solo album in 2003, named Stylish E., was well received in Korea. At the Korean music awards, Hyori Lee won over seven "artist of the year" awards. She released another album with Fin. K.L. in October 2005, but this album was only released online. In 2006, Hyori released her second solo album, titled Dark Angel. The first single of this album, "Get Ya," was accused of plagiarizing Britney Spear's "Why Don't You Do Something." Because of this, Hyori stopped promotion of that single and started focusing on the other songs in her album.
In 2007, Hyori Lee will perform in a new drama entitled If In Love... Like Them, where she will co-star with Lee Dong Gun. The drama is only a 2-episode miniseries. This drama will be produced in partnership with Mnet Media, Hyori's new management agency.
On July 16, 2008 Hyori released a new album entitled Hyorish with the main single entitled "U-Go-Girl". After releasing the album, she took some time off from music to work in some variety shows including Time Machine, Happy Together, Sang Sang Plus, Off the Record, and Family Outing.
In 2010, Hyori released a new album, H-Logic with the main single named "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."
Hyori Lee enjoys dancing, listening to R&B, and she lists her favorite artists as Mariah Carey and Brandy. Drawing and acting are also two of her favorite hobbies.
