Lee Hi on 'Seoulite,' Teenage Values & Speaking Up to Adults: Interview

FUSE TV - Lee Hi on 'Seoulite,' Teenage Values & Speaking Up to Adults: Interview

Listening to a Lee Hi would make one think the 19-year-old was a seasoned soul diva. The K-pop star recently returned to the scene with her new album, Seoulite, that not only boasted retro anthems like "My Star" and "Hold My Hand," but also her ability to completely possess a gorgeous ballad in "Breathe." 

As part of Fuse's ongoing Teen Takeover Week, we talk to one of the 19 Under 19 honorees about teenage life, how her new music represents her peers and entering into the notoriously competitive Korean pop scene at just 14. 

All this week, tune into Teen Takeover Week music-video blocks featuring Fifth Harmony, One Direction and many more. Find Fuse in your area with our Channel Finder.
