On May 20, Lee Hi uploaded images teasing a new comeback on Instagram, her first Korean comeback since 2016’s SEOULITE.
The three images all shared the same caption: “💗HI, THERE.💗” (a hint at an album name, perhaps?)
So many celebrities flooded her comments section including fellow-YG Entertainment lady AKMU‘s Suhyun, and YG Entertainment producer AiRPLAY who commented “finally😭😭😭😭” (same, AiRPLAY. Same.)
The YG Entertainment love didn’t stop there as former 2NE1 members Sandara Park and Park Bom “liked” the posts on Instagram.
Lee Hi and 2NE1 became close during their time as labelmates, with CL joining Lee Hi on stage during Lee Hi’s “Rose” promotions as well as Lee Hi joining 2NE1 for performances of “If I Were You” during YG Entertainment’s 2014 YG Family Concert.
Lee Hi quickly became a little sister to 2NE1 & it’s so nice to see the lasting bond of YG Entertainment’s female artists (current and former). Undoubtedly they know how hard Lee Hi has worked and has been working for this moment.
As of yet, the release date and contents of Lee Hi’s comeback are unknown.
