Some of the comments made by film critic Kim Do-hoon about singer Lee Hyo-ri are right and some are wrong.

On the 11th, Kim Do-hoon said on his SNS, “I feel sorry for Lee Hyo-ri these days,” and evaluated Lee Hyo-ri’s recent move. He said, "I don't know why I've been doing entertainment shows like 'Eat Concern for the Past' with Kim Tae-ho for several years."

That's right. It is true that he is meeting the public from a past-oriented point of view. Lee Hyo-ri summoned the group Fin.K.L members through tvN's 'Camping Club', and recalled memories and memories of the past by singing hit songs such as '10 Minutes' released 20 years ago on tvN's 'Dance Singer's Wandering Troupe'.

MBC 'What do you do when you play?' formed a project group 'Ssak3' (Yoo Jae-seok, Lee Hyo-ri, Rain) and 'Refund Expedition' (Eom Jeong-hwa, Lee Hyo-ri, Jessi, Hwasa) and released a new song, but this is not an artist but an entertainer. close to the result.

Lee Hyo-ri gives the impression that Lee Hyo-ri is leaning on singer Lee Hyo-ri, who had the best status in the past through this move. Especially, 'Dance Singer's Wandering Troupe' is like that. In 'Dance Singer's Wandering Troupe', Hyori Lee sang a hit song from the past, not a recent song, and brought up an old story. The planning intention of stimulating past memories and nostalgia is not a bad thing, but as concept entertainment like this continues to accumulate, I think it was not a good card for Lee Hyo-ri.

However, Lee Hyori is not without challenges as a singer. Kim Do-hoon said, "Isn't Lee Hyo-ri an artist with enough capacity and influence to bring together young and interesting producers and composers to release contemporary albums?" We must refer to the path of

In fact, Hyo-ri Lee has not had a new release since her regular album 'BLACK' released in July 2017. In this album, Hyo-ri Lee collaborated with singer Lee Jeok, rapper Kilogram, Absint, and Ross to challenge and experiment.

There is no new song released with Lee Hyori's name, but there is a new song. Since the end of last year, Hyo-ri Lee has released a new song with the OST 'FREE SMILE' of tvN's 'Seoul Check-in', which she appeared in. A new voice was captured in a duet in line with the production of the group AKMU Lee Chan-hyuk.

Also, as part of the two-track project, she released the single 'Happy Me From Today' with her husband, guitarist Lee Sang-soon. Then, she sang the year-end entertainment program tvN's 'Canada Check-in' OST 'Without Asking Regards'. Both songs showed Lee Hyo-ri's acoustic folk sensibility.

While the music industry's record release form and trends are rapidly changing, it is not always necessary to release an album and be active as a singer to continue life. Hyori Lee is conveying a message through her music in her own way.

Lee Hyo-ri admits that she is still a singer, but it is also true that her career focused on entertainment is regrettable. Lee Hyo-ri was in a pioneering position as a solo singer and the public went wild. As a singer, I want you to remember that there are many fans who love and miss Lee Hyo-ri.
