Singer Lee Hyori left a deep impression on her juniors with a congratulatory speech filled with her own beliefs.

Lee Hyori attended the '2023 Graduation Ceremony' held at Kookmin University Concert Hall at 10:30 am on the 14th. Hyori Lee, class of '98, Department of Theater and Film, Kookmin University Department of Performing Arts, delivered the congratulatory speech at the graduation ceremony.

On this day, Hyori Lee gave a cheerful greeting and said, "I would also like to thank all the reporters who came to visit early in the morning. In fact, they come wherever I go. In the past, there were times when it was a bit difficult, but now I am grateful for everything." He spoke loudly.

Hyori Lee continued her congratulatory speech and said, "I am grateful to you for inviting me to this event and welcoming me warmly despite the fact that there are many great graduates." "As I came to school after a long time, I thought, 'Our school is located in a very beautiful place.' There is Bukhansan Mountain behind it, and the air is so nice." “It was so clear and clear that I felt like my heart had burst open,” he began.

Hyori Lee said, "26 years ago, I entered the Department of Theater and Film at Kookmin University with the dream of becoming a famous person rather than an actor. At that time, I was an ordinary student who was not particularly good at acting, singing, or pretty. . Even now, that hasn't changed much, but I was lucky enough to debut in the entertainment industry and am still working well while being loved. I wonder if I have the right to make a fuss in front of you because it took me 8 years to graduate from college, but I'm proud of having lived a little longer than you. “I’ll think about it,” he said.

Lee Hyori said, "I really hate it when someone speaks for a long time, and if it is repeated for a long time, I don't want to meet that person. I often met people like that during my social life, but in fact, those people didn't have a big impact on me. Rather, I put aside their opinions and cautions." “The people who listened to my story, and the people who showed me how I live my life without explaining it to anyone in words, had a bigger resonance for me,” he confessed.

He said, "I don't want to give you a speech," and "Just live as you want. It is you, not anyone else, who cares for you more than anyone else and guides you to the right path. What you need to listen to more than anyone else's is your own heart. This is the voice of. Let go of the hope that someone better than you will lead me with wonderful words, give me enlightenment, and make my life a little easier. There are people in this world who feed on such thoughts. “Don’t fall prey to that group,” he advised.

Hyori Lee also said, "Negative voices like 'I'm weak, I'm stupid, I'm a person who can't do better' are not my true voice. Of course, I hear those voices and feel shaken and frustrated, but there is something beyond those voices." Now, little by little, I feel that I am really saying at the top of my voice, ‘I’m doing my best, you’re doing well, you deserve to be loved.’ The voice beyond that was always caring for me, loving me, and always telling me to help me go down a good path. "Everyone, please listen carefully. It may be too small to hear now, but if you have faith and continue to listen, you will be able to feel the sound continue to grow louder," he emphasized.

Hyori Lee shouted ‘Dokgo die’. He said, "Don't be swayed by the nonsense that pretends to be like this or that and tries to take advantage of you. And if possible, don't trust anyone. Be more careful of people who come close to you and say, 'You're our family.' Don't lean on anyone and try to be comforted, just say, 'Life is a tough ride.' "I think it would be good to keep doing it. Then, there are times when you meet really precious people for a moment. Then, you need to feel comforted and go your own way without regrets," he said.

Hyori Lee continued, "I don't think words have much power. Only what you have personally experienced in your life will become yours. Go forward, bump into a lot, get hurt a lot, and learn a lot. So, create your own story. Look, I will always look upon and support you with a warm heart.”

Lee Hyo-ri then joked, "I ended up writing the things I need right now in this speech without even realizing it. So don't listen to what I've said so far," and then added, "You already know everything. I know you'll do well." Instilled courage in graduates. Finally, he passionately sang his hit song 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', saying, "I'll stop talking and just sing a song and leave."

Hyori Lee came down from the podium and interacted with the graduates in the audience, making the audience go wild.
