Beginning in FinK.L.

Lee started her career as part of the Korean pop girl group Fin.K.L. As the oldest member, she would become the leader of the group. Lee was discovered while taking sticker pictures with her friends and was actually the last to join Fin.K.L., just before their debut in January 1998. Fin.K.L. debuted officially on May 22, 1998 with their first single "Blue Rain." It was received quite well. The second release from their first album, To My Boyfriend, became the first of their multiple number one hits. Fin K.L. became one of the most popular and successful Korean groups of all-time, rivaling fellow popular girl group S.E.S.

Establishing a solo entertainment career
A year after Fin K.L.'s fourth album Forever, her solo album was released at the end of 2003, entitled Stylish...E. The singer nearly swept the 2003 Daesangs, the most prestigious South Korean music award, winning more than seven of them, including three of the four most prestigious Daesangs. Stylish...E sold over 153,590 copies in South Korea alone, according to the Music Industry Association of Korea.[1] Her popularity in her various activities eventually was dubbed as the "Hyori Syndrome" in South Korea, and the Korean Media nicknamed 2003 "The Year of Hyori" as she was rarely out of the news all year.[2] Lee Hyori has also appeared as the lead female actress in the SBS drama Three Leaf Clover co-starring opposite Ryu Jin, Kim Jung Hwa, Kim Kang Woo and Lee Hoon. However, the ratings were continually low, and it ended after 16 episodes. On August 8, 2005 she co-hosted the annual Korean Music Festival for the second year running.

Accusation of plagilarism
In February 2006, Lee released her follow up album, Dark Angel. The first single, "Get Ya", featured heavy choreography and sexually suggestive attire, which has become Lee's trademark. However, there was controversy over the single as the songwriters of Britney Spears' single "Do Somethin'" accused the "Get Ya" songwriters of plagiarism. (Lee did not contribute to the song.) While this incident was not the first time the Korean pop industry has been accused of plagiarism, it was the first time the copyright holder had made a formal complaint. After media attention increased, Lee and her record company quickly stopped all promotion for the single, taking a short break to prepare for "Shall We Dance", her followup single. Due to the negative attention, both the single and album were not successful, and promotions were stopped. "Straight Up" was released as a final single, but it was not promoted by Lee.

Move to M-Net
In November 2006, it was revealed that Lee had signed a three-year contract with M-Net Entertainment for ₩2.2 billion,[4] becoming the highest paid female singer in South Korea.[5] Early in 2007, Lee Hyori showed up an hour late to a press conference, which resulted in backlash from the media.[citation needed] The media also criticized her sexual image, stating that she was "facing an image crisis" and urged her to downplay her sexuality.[6] Meanwhile, Lee prepared to appear in a new "mini-drama" during February 2007, despite the failure of her previous drama. She starred alongside Lee Dong Gun in If In Love... Like Them which, although originally announced as being only one episode long, ran for four episodes on MNet. An edited two-episode version of the drama also ran on SBS. During filming for the drama, part of a roof Lee was standing on collapsed. Only her foot fell through the roof and she was able to be saved, and as it was reported the fall would have been fatal if co-star Lee Dong Gun had not rescued her.[citation needed] In February 2007, Lee announced her new digital single which would essentially be the soundtrack to If In Love... Like Them. She had her comeback on SBS Inkigayo on February 25, 2007, performing all three main tracks from the single. The lead song was "Toc Toc Toc", which was a sexy R&B number like her previous efforts. However, the single also gave Lee an opportunity to sing ballads and to slowly move her image away from the "sexy superstar" that she is known to be. The single, although initially given a digital-only release, was given a limited retail release of only 30,000 copies, and was appropriately titled If In Love Like Them. Released on March 6, 2007, it included three of the tracks found in the digital single, along with a reworked version of "Toc Toc Toc". It was the best-selling album for that month, selling 27,845 copies. Although her single succeeded, her drama was heavily penalized for violating advertising guidelines, as If In Love had several scenes advertising the products of its sponsors, in addition to using Lee's songs in the soundtrack. The Korean Broadcasting Committee has ruled that the drama can never be aired in South Korea again, and that the network must apologize to its viewers. According to The Chosun Ilbo, Lee has also been promoting her work in Japan. Japanese network Fuji TV decided to air If In Love... Like Them and has even invited the singera/actress to visit Japan to promote the drama, where she will be treated to the same VIP treatment offered to other international stars. However, the drama was broadcast on satellite station CS Fuji, a smaller network that Fuji TV owned. The Japanese considered the leading part of this drama to be Lee Dong-gun.

2008: Return to spot
During breaks in her solo music career, Lee also hosted various television programs, including Time Machine and Happy Together, which she co-hosted with Yu Jae-seok in 2006. It was reported on March 26, 2008 that Lee would join KBS's Sang Sang Plus as a co-host alongside Country Kko Kko members Shin Jung-hwan and Tak Jae-hoon, replacing various outgoing hosts; she debuted on April 8, 2008.[12] She was one of the original co-hosts of Change, a show on SBS's Good Sunday line-up, before leaving in early July[citation needed]. She also starred in Off the Record, a behind-the-scenes look at her life.
Her third album, It's HYORISH, was released on July 16, 2008. "U-Go-Girl", her first single, hit #1 on various online and offline charts, including the various television music shows.

Fin.K.L Reunion at Lee Hyori Solo Concert

Fin.K.L, one of the most popular girl groups at its peak will be reuniting for the first time on stage in 3 years at Lee Hyori’s solo concert on 20th December.

Lee Hyori posted on her fan cafe today revealing that Ock Ju Hyun, Sung Yuri and Lee Jin would be at her solo concert. Hyori expressed, “Even though it tends to get busy towards the end of year, I still asked them to appear at my concert even though I was feeling quite apologetic about it. But I never expected them to agree so quickly so I am very grateful to them.”

Since releasing their last single Forever Fin.K.L in October 2005, they have been going about their solo careers. But Fin.K.L’s popularity has never showed any signs of waning even now and have been voted by many who would love to see them reunite once again as a group. With Big Bang already confirmed to perform with Lee Hyori at her concert, the addition of Fin.K.L promises to be an extra bonus with the gathering of the most popular singers in one location.
