Lee Hyori (also Romanized as Lee Hyolee and officially I Hyo-lee) (born May 10, 1979) is a popular South Korean singer and actress. She started off as part of the successful K-pop girl group Fin.K.L, but has since become a solo artist. Her first album was very successful, winning many "Daesangs" (a Korean award equivalent to "Artist of the Year") for that album. She has since become the highest-paid female singer in South Korea.

Hyori Lee, also written as Lee Hyori, Lee Hyolee, and Lee Hyo-ri, was the youngest of three children born to her parents. She is a k-pop singer who was once a member of the K-pop group Fin.K.L. (Fine Killing Liberty). She was discovered while taking pictures in a photo booth and was made into the leader of Fin.K.L. despite being the last member to be picked. Hyori was chosen to be the leader due to her incredibly beautiful look, amazing dance skills, and strong vocals.

Hyori Lee is active in many commercials (called CFs). She represents Samsung, FR Jeans, GGPX New York, Biotherm Korea, G-Market, Dove (company), Delmonte and Samsachun. She also starred in a drama series entitled Three Leaf Clover, however, her acting endeavor was unsuccessful, as the series garnered pretty low ratings

Her debut solo album in 2003, named Stylish E., was well received in Korea. At the Korean music awards, Hyori Lee won over seven "artist of the year" awards. She released another album with Fin. K.L. in October 2005, but this album was only released online. In 2006, Hyori released her second solo album, titled Dark Angel. The first single of this album, "Get Ya," was accused of plagiarizing Britney Spear's "Why Don't You Do Something." Because of this, Hyori stopped promotion of that single and started focusing on the other songs in her album.

In 2007, Hyori Lee will perform in a new drama entitled If In Love... Like Them, where she will co-star with Lee Dong Gun. The drama is only a 2-episode miniseries. This drama will be produced in partnership with Mnet Media, Hyori's new management agency.
Hyori Lee enjoys dancing, listening to R&B, and she lists her favorite artists as Mariah Carey and Brandy. Drawing and acting are also two of her favorite hobbies.
