Lee Hyori Biography

Lee Hyori started her entertainment career as a member of girl group Fin.K.L which made their debut in 1998. The group enjoyed immense success before the members decided to part ways in 2002.

Hyori released her first solo album, Stylish, in August 2003, which became one of the biggest hits of the year. She released her second album, Dark Angel, in February 2006, which did just ok amidst accusation of plagiarism. Her third album, It’s Hyorish, released in July 2008, did a lot better than Dark Angel.

Hyori also starred in a couple of TV dramas over the years, i.e. Three Leaf Clover and Perhaps Love, but with limited success. She did well on variety shows though, as co-host for Happy Together and Family Outing etc.

Hyori released her fourth album, H-Logic, in April 2010, which was again caught in plagiarism controversy and prompted her to halt her activities as a singer. She became an active campaigner for animal rights during her hiatus.
