Watch: Lee Hyori, Rain, And Yoo Jae Suk Reminisce About Old Times As They Prepare For Co-Ed Group

On the May 30 episode of MBC’s “How Do You Play?”, Lee Hyori, Rain, and Yoo Jae Suk met up to discuss their upcoming co-ed group.

First, Lee Hyori and Yoo Jae Suk met at a café and talked about Lee Hyori’s recent contract with a new agency. She said, “If I debut in a group, I’ll be involved for several months. In that case, I need an agency. I signed with this agency because we have a prior relationship.”

Lee Hyori added that the contract does not force her to do anything she doesn’t want to do. “I don’t have any activities planned except for this show,” she said. “I asked them not to plan anything else for me. In return, I did not accept the contract fee.”

Later, Rain joined them to talk about their careers. He said, “I believe there are still no female solo artists who can win against Lee Hyori.” Yoo Jae Suk added that Lee Hyori is the only celebrity who has won Grand Prizes (Daesangs) in both music and entertainment. He joked, “If we form a group and we win the Daesang in music, I’ll become the next celebrity to accomplish that feat.”

Rain and Lee Hyori also recalled their old duet performance together. Rain said, “We only rehearsed for a day.” Lee Hyori explained, “We were so busy at the time that we only had time to rehearse for a day.”

Rain added that he and Lee Hyori could have gotten a lot closer but were not able to because of their packed schedules. Lee Hyori cracked Yoo Jae Suk up by saying, “We even could have dated.” Rain said, “I know. But we didn’t even exchange contact information.” Lee Hyori continued, “We didn’t have time to meet up in private. We met several times for work, but we didn’t have time for anything else.”

In discussing who else would join their group, Lee Hyori said, “It’s not enough to just get the strongest and most talented people and put them in a group together. The balance is what’s important. If someone is like fire, you need someone else who is like water.” She quipped, “Since I come on pretty strong, I think you need to find people who are quiet and will listen to what I say.” Rain said, “If it’s like this, let’s just become Lee Hyori & Boys.”

Lee Hyori then gave a performance of her solo hit “U Go Girl.”

Lee Hyori also talked about a scene in which she fought with Kim Tae Hee in a sitcom. She said, “Can’t Kim Tae Hee join the group as well? I’ll invite Lee Sang Soon too and we’ll be a family group. I think Lee Sang Soon would like that. He’d step over me in order to get to the top.” Rain looked interested in the idea but Lee Hyori said, “There can only be one visual in the group. Who is it?” Rain replied without hesitation, “It’s Kim Tae Hee.” She laughed and said, “He’s quite wise.”
