Netizens realized that Lee Hyo-ri had given a hint about her comeback on SNS before
On October 2nd, Antenna surprised everyone as they announced the release of Lee Hyo-ri’s digital single “HOODIE E BANBAJI”.
The 15-second mood film released together with the announcement shows Lee Hyo-ri wearing a hoodie and looking to one side in a dark alley.
Lee Hyo-ri’s smokey makeup and the video atmosphere remind people of “Anymotion” and “Anyclub” promotions when she was in her heyday 10 years ago. Recently on September 17th, Lee Hyo-ri performed “Anyclub” at the 2023 Hyundai Card Da Vinci Motel festival.
As such, this is the first time in 6 years that Lee Hyo-ri has returned to her main job without a project. In 2017, she promoted her sixth full album “BLACK”. Later, she joined “Hangout with Yoo” and carried out activities as a member of the SSAK3 and Refund Sisters projects.
Amid the rising anticipation for Lee Hyo-ri’s comeback, netizens found hints from her SNS posts in the past.
On the 23rd and 24th of September, Lee Hyo-ri uploaded several photos on her social media with the caption “The season of hoodie and shorts”. One picture shows Lee Hyo-ri wearing a black hoodie and beige shorts on a night walk. In another image, the female singer captivated netizens with her unique Y2K-style OOTD that combined a pink hoodie and sky blue shorts.
Re-examining those photos on Lee Hyo-ri’s SNS, netizens commented “I can’t believe that those pictures were actually spoilers”, “I’m curious about what kind of music she will sing”, “Please release songs often”, etc.
As Lee Hyo-ri has recently expressed her extraordinary passion for her singing career again, fans and netizens are raising expectations for her comeback.
She appeared on Shin Dong-yup’s web entertainment program and revealed that she had registered for lessons at a vocal academy.
Lee Hyo-ri shared, “Seeing Kim Wan-sun and Uhm Jung-hwa on ‘Dancing Queens on the Road’, I thought they looked so young and fresh”, adding “I’m practicing vocal three times a week and also learning to compose on computers. The joy of having something to do and think like doing homework is much happier than the feelings when I received awards and made a lot of money”.
Meanwhile, Lee Hyo-ri’s digital single “HOODIE E BANBAJI” will be released at 6 p.m. on October 12th.
