Lee Ha Yi, better known as, Lee Hi
Born 1996, Korean singer
For those of you who don’t know anything about Kpop, it’s sometimes safe not to, because it’s simply addictive. Kpop celebrities are the new standards for Korean fashion: from the stage to airport, everyone knows what everyone’s wearing. So if you think Psy and Gangnam Style is all there is in Kpop, think again. From the same record label and agency that brought you Psy’s Gangnam Style, here’s Lee Hi, a 16 year old singer who’s adorable, yet so talented. Recently, she’s released an album, First Love, and her new music video, It’s Over, shows her adorable, girly, and lovable style. Not only did I fall in love with her voice, but her outfits are so refreshing and stylish, that I’m obsessed.
Why a style icon?
Well, to be honest, her agency works with the most fashionable people in Korea, that it’s always such a pleasure to see how they wear what they wear. I feel like Kpop girl groups are all dressed the same, but when I see Lee Hi, her outfits are like no other; she keeps it cute, simple, yet lovely and hip. If you’re a Kpop fan, you’d know what I’m talking about when I say YG has a lineup of fashionistas. If I just introduced you to it, trust me, with this girl, you’re off to a good start!
