8 May 2013 / 3 years 5 months ago

K-pop diva Lee Hyori has made her way back to the stage after a three-year hiatus from the music scene with her newest single “Miss Korea,‘ which was unveiled on Monday.According to an article in The Korea Herald, “Miss Korea,‘ a pre-release single from her soon-to-be-released fifth studio album, achieved an “all-kill‘ almost immediately upon its release by topping all the major Korean music charts including Melon, Daum, Bugs and Mnet.“Miss Korea‘ was both written and composed by the diva herself and arranged by her jazz guitarist boyfriend Lee Sang-soon.The retro-jazz rhythmic track shows a new and more sophisticated side of the artist, especially compared to the typical energetic dance tracks that Lee is known for. The full-version music video was also released on the same day as a black and white video depicting the star as a circa 1950s-type glamorous Miss Korea pageant crown holder.By taking the matters of writing and composing “Miss Korea‘ into her own hands, the 33-year-old singer known as both a fashion icon and a veteran K-pop star appears to have bounced back from plagiarism scandals involving a producer who worked on Lee’s previous album “H-Logic,‘ which led to her musical hiatus.Lee’s agency B2M Entertainment previously announced that around five music videos are, planned for the star’s long-awaited music comeback. The yet-to-be titled full album is expected to be released on May 21.
