Updated on February 20, 2012

Quick Bio

  • Name: Lee Hyori
  • Also known as: Hyori Lee or Cho Ri
  • Profession: Singer, model, and actress
  • Birthdate: May 10, 1979

Hyori Lee is one of South Korea's most recognized and celebrated singers of all time. She is widely known not only for her modeling, singing and acting, but as the largest sex symbol of Korea. She is an international star, promoting her sexy looks, risque outfits and fun dancing skills.

MUSIC CAREER

Hyori launched her career in a Korean Pop group called Fin K.L. What's interesting is that Hyori was discovered in a mall while she was taking photo booth pictures and was the last member picked for the group. Although she was the last member, they made her the leader of the group.

Hyori eventually broke out and began to make history on her own. Her debut solo album in 2003, named Stylish E., was greatly received in Korea and won numerous Korean Music Awards. In 2006, Hyori released another album titled 'Dark Angel.'

In 2008 Hyori made a tremendous comeback with her album called 'Its Hyorish', which made her the highest paid female singer in Korea.

MODELING CAREER

Thanks to her gorgeous face and pefect body, Hyori has had such success in modeling with numerous commercials and endorsements.

Hyori has had a wide variety of endorsements from companies such as Dole, Gmarket, Dove, Anystyle, Ace Bed, Dove, Fruits Wax, Calvin Klein, and many others.  She also appeared in a commercial for Isa Knox with American actress Jessica Alba.

Her largest and most successful endorsement has been with Samsung Anycall. 

ACTING

Hyori Lee broke out into her acting career in the 2006 drama on a popular Korean TV Channel SBS, called 'Three Leaf Clover.'

Her second drama was called 'Perhaps Love', a romantic drama broadcast on the SBS Channel. It was much better received than her first show.

Her current show on air is called 'On Air' ironically, also being broadcast on SBS. I would have to argue her best thus far!

Fun Hyori Facts

  • When she was a child her dream was to become a police officer.

      She's really attractive, but I never heard her voice. I heard that the leader of SS501 (KHJ) really idolized her :) is it correct? Thank's for sharing this !

      Yes, actually I've heard that too. Her singing is okay, but I think she's more known for her dancing and sex appeal! =)

      Hi Kea, Thanks for your comments! Shes is very hot. However I'd recommend checking out her dancing more than her singing lol. Did you like your visit?

      Yeah, I liked my visit to Korea. It was very different and great too. I enjoyed the food, the bathtubs (minus the shower curtains), etc. I most enjoyed how different it was from the US!
