Watch: Lee Sora And Lee Hi Sing Beautiful Duet Version Of Lee Sora’s “Song Request”
Lee Sora performed her track “Song Request” for the first time on TV!
On the June 27 episode of JTBC’s “Begin Again,” Lee Hi joined the cast in her first TV appearance since leaving YG Entertainment. At a beach in Sokcho, Gangwon Province, the “Begin Again” team held a busking session.
It was revealed on the show that Lee Hi had sung the guide version of Lee Sora’s “Song Request.” “Song Request” was released in January 2019 and was produced and written by Epik High’s Tablo, DEE.P, and BTS’ Suga. Suga also featured on the track.
Lee Sora praised Lee Hi’s guide version and said, “Even if I had tried to imitate the guide version, it wouldn’t have worked, so I sang it in my own voice. At the time, I thought, ‘I think Lee Hi could just sing the song herself.'” Lee Hi replied, “I think the song went to the person who it matched the most.”
At the busking session, Lee Hi and Lee Sora sang a special duet version of the song. Lee Hi said, “I’m always nervous when performing somewhere for the first time, but I felt calm singing in front of the ocean with the sound of the ocean coming through the in-ears. I also felt like I could depend on Lee Sora.”
