Lee Hi teams up with JYP for her upcoming song release


Earlier, it was announced that Lee Hi would be making a surprise release of a brand new song, which is reported to be a ballad, on November 22nd.

Today, it’s been revealed that she’s enlisted the help of her former mentor J.Y. Park, who will be overseeing the production of the single including writing and composing the song himself. Although her relations with J.Y. Park were cut off with the end of ‘K-Pop Star‘, they’ll be able to rekindle their mentor/student relationship once again.

YG Entertainment representatives said, “J.Y. Park didn’t personally write the songs of Park Ji Min and Baek Ah Yeon, both of whom debuted under JYP Entertainment, so it’s surprising to us that he’s willing to participate in Lee Hi’s album. There will be no impressive music video, dancers, or outfits with this comeback as the focus will be put entirely on her voice and vocal talent.”

Be sure to check back for its release!

i honestly wished ah yeon would've gone to YG instead (it's that moment she started spazzing when taeyang sat next to her on an ep of kpop star). but her single was good... just not wow enough.

YG slid that in there real nice.

i knew it would be a ballad i cant wait

I feel bad for Baek Ah Yeon and Park Ji Min because of the amount of butthurt this will cause.

LOL...Why are you ALWAYS like this LOL

I really don't understand the jyp/yg circle jerk

i can't help but think that he's bitter about psy and hayi's success and wants to leech off her popularity rn. sucks to be him
markthatcoin idk if he's bitter but it does suck to be him21st-Nov-2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
jyp's october 5 tweet to psy: Jae Sang, I just heard about your news today after spending my time away from Korea without a cell phone or internet connection. What in the world is going on! I did an interview cheering you on and wishing you to succeed with ‘Gangnam Style‘ two weeks ago, just before I left Korea. And now that song is ranked at the second place on the billboards chart! How could you accomplish something other people have prepared for years in just a month? Congratulations! Your life is full of drama!
akaich0u 21st-Nov-2012 05:12 pm (UTC)
He's JYP....he doesn't need to "leech" off a rookie's popularity, no matter how successful.
markthatcoin 21st-Nov-2012 05:17 pm (UTC)
mte, he's doing well for himself and his artists. but it sucks to put a lot of your time and energy into something (namely international success, here) and not have the positive reaction you desire.
akaich0u 22nd-Nov-2012 02:12 am (UTC)
Yeah, I feel for him, but at the same time JYP has always been on of the most realistic Kpop head honchos when it comes to the American market...so I think the best is yet to come for him still, since he's so patient about the whole thing. And while I'm happy for Psy, of course, I worry for his longevity.
lysblack 21st-Nov-2012 06:57 pm (UTC)
... yeah because he needs to leech off from some rookie popularity when he was the songwriter who earned the most in the past year and is wildly recognized by his talent not only as a songwriter, but as an overall artist.

i mean, it's not like people beg for his songs, or like psy, seven and yg asked him to give his song to seven.

i would hate to be guy who created some of the best kpop acts and that changed the industry game.
uglypricetag 22nd-Nov-2012 02:36 am (UTC)
obv i know of his accomplishments. no need to get defensive or anything. i'm not knocking his talent. i'm saying that i bet he feels overshadowed by YG's success. park jimin won the competition but she hasn't had half of hayi's success so far under JYP.

besides, it's not strange for a industry veteran to ride on the popularity of an up-and-comer. happens everywhere.
soramai 21st-Nov-2012 09:59 am (UTC)
I hope it will be good.
hurtmybones 21st-Nov-2012 10:57 am (UTC)
a jyp ballad? lol bye
deeinanutshell 21st-Nov-2012 11:36 am (UTC)
that's mad awkward for ji min and ah yeon

unless YGE is planning to produce for them too which makes sense and now I'm waiting for that statement too to come out

I'm guessing YG had to make this deal in order to get to produce next singles for Park Ji Min and Baek. I just hope Lee Hi isn't screwed up by JYP with some super boring traditional Korean ballad instead of getting something more international sounding that would fit better her soul voice. Oh well, if this song is a major flop she can always keep on promoting 1,2,3,4 instead. LOL

The last ballads JYP wrote that I can think of, WG's Dugo Dugo and Se7en's When I Can't Sing, were neither traditional nor boring....I was under the impression that most YG stans liked Se7en's song.

ashiva 21st-Nov-2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
Idk both songs are ok, but not especially memorable or something I would put on repeat.
justhyuu 21st-Nov-2012 09:10 pm (UTC)
Dugo Dugo is AMAZING, but I was bored to death by Se7en's song
falling_empress 21st-Nov-2012 12:05 pm (UTC)
I just can't get into her...she's basic imo.

Sad fot the girls in JYP, sad for any YG artist that is postponed, sad for the other Su:Pearls.
But I'm really excited that Lee Hayi will promote a new song ! I hope it's just as good as 1 2 3 4. And that she'll have success as well <3
Being a YG stan is really challenging my priorities !

Being a YG stan is really challenging my priorities ! ughhh tell me about it...
gathyou 21st-Nov-2012 06:52 pm (UTC)
I think we all feel the same, sadly
markthatcoin 21st-Nov-2012 07:25 pm (UTC)
ya i'm just hoping for new songs from everyone soon!!
ayumikoshiro 21st-Nov-2012 02:16 pm (UTC)
I don't think they released 15+ properly. That and I feel like JYP artists always start off slow.
johnnyquest89 21st-Nov-2012 04:47 pm (UTC)
all this time I thought Ji min went to SM
uglypricetag 22nd-Nov-2012 02:41 am (UTC)
she's too good for SM
asnindie 21st-Nov-2012 05:32 pm (UTC)
JYP gave Se7en his first hit in a while, Omona better recognise. But yeah If I was Park Ji Min i'd be throwing a bitch fit because he didn't even compose her song.
lysblack 21st-Nov-2012 06:50 pm (UTC)
pretty much, idg how so many people are complaining saying he'll ruin her.
aya_sama3000 21st-Nov-2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
instead of making a hit for leehi, he should be pimping out the rookie acts his company debuted this year...
bryanxboredness 21st-Nov-2012 06:58 pm (UTC)
Because they all flopped? LOL
lysblack 21st-Nov-2012 06:47 pm (UTC)
my only issue with this was that he was traveling when 15& and ayeon debuted, which is okay, but i think he should have focuzed on his own artists when returning and not other company's.
odd_fish_stick 21st-Nov-2012 08:30 pm (UTC)
well he can write in a style that can suit her so I don't see why not. Her next song will be a hit regardless so...

JYP don't need to leech of anybody smh and he's written songs for people outside JYP before. However I can see how the butthurt can come about since he should be giving good songs to Miss A and 15& instead... This is probably because of the boner exchange they have going on
akaich0u 22nd-Nov-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
he should be giving good songs to Miss A and 15& instead
Personally I think miss A's "I Don't Need a Man" is an absolute gem and one of the best things that has ever come out of da JYP machine. It's in my Top 5 ~Asian Soul~ tracks in recent years tbh...right up there with "Nobody", "Dugo Dugo", "Again & Again" and "Tell Me". Come to think of it, JYP's been pretty on point this year since his own solo work was excellent too.

15& though...like wat I'm still not 100% sure who they are....
siaht 21st-Nov-2012 09:39 pm (UTC)
And the question this makes me want to ask is

when do we get more Wonder Bang tbh
miko_nyappy forever butt hurt22nd-Nov-2012 02:05 am (UTC)
Anytime I see a post about YG I get sad that it's not about 2ne1 releasing a new song. I should just give up hope.
