Lee Hi Talks About Her Hiatus And The Style Of Her New Album
Lee Hi, who recently made a comeback after a three-year hiatus, posed for a photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar’s June issue.
In the accompanying interview, she talked a little bit about her hiatus and what she had been doing. She said, “I worked hard to fill my flaws as a singer and improve my skills. I also spent time writing songs and lyrics. It’s different now. I’m still young, and I feel that there’s no reason for me to be in a hurry. I found hobbies outside of music, and I had a good time.”
On her mini album “24℃,” which dropped on May 30, she said, “It’s different from before. Both me and the songs are a bit more mature. The mood of this photo shoot is actually similar to my album, in that it’s got a certain Asian vibe to it.”
“While making this album, I thought a lot about what an ‘East Asian’ style song is. The music that I enjoy and listen to often is more Western, but as I spend more time as a singer, I find myself seeking out more Asian styles. So the lyrics are also almost all Korean. There are some English lyrics, but they’re all very easy to understand.”
