Lee Hi South Korean singer-songwriter part ways from YG Entertainment

Lee Ha-yi, known by her stage name Lee Hi, a South Korean singer-songwriter has finally parted ways from YG Entertainment after rumors separated online in the last few days. YG Entrainment has confirmed the rumor and announced the departure of Lee Hi after being with the company for the last 8 years. The agency has released a statement and expressed good wishes for the singer and assured its support to her in future.

Hello, this is YG Entertainment.

After a long and careful discussion with Lee Hi, whose contracts is expiring, we have decided to go our separate paths and support each other in doing so.

Since she took the runner-up position in K-Pop Star Season 1 in 2011 and after signing with YG Entertainment in 2012, Lee Hi has grown into a “next generation female vocalist” with her signature vocal color and style.

We will always be thankful and cheer for Lee Hi, who built her own unrivaled space in YG Entertainment as an artist with us for the past 7 years.

Please continue to give your support to Lee Hi’s new path.
