Lee Hyori Was Once Banned From Being Within 100 Meters of Which Singer?
Though socialtainer Lee Hyori may be known now for her good works and positive influences, it seems there was a time when other management agencies doubted the positive influence of the singer.
On the April 8 episode of SBS’ You and I, the show showed MCs Lee Hyori and Jung Jae Hyung in the waiting room before the show’s recording began.
While going over the questions to later ask the episode’s featured guests, 2AM, Lee Hyori surprisingly revealed that in the past there were celebrities that she was forbidden from being around because of concerns she would ruin them.
Lee Hyori went on to bring up close friend, singer Lee Soo Young, as an example saying, “Long time ago [Lee Soo Young’s agency] used to manage her very tightly. But I would always bring her out to watch a late-night movie or to pojangmachas so her agency enacted a ‘refrain from approaching within 100 meters of Lee Hyori’ rule.”
Lee Hyori laughed off the incident saying, “But I always think singers and actors need those kind of experiences and [shouldn′t] just practice.”
Jung Jae Hyung agreed with Lee Hyori saying, “How can you write music if you’ve never experienced both extremes?”
