In the program, Lee Hi sang her own song ‘Breathe’ which released in 2016.
After the song ends, Lee Hi then can’t hide but teared up. Lee Hi said: “I really seldom cry, I hate crying and I don’t like others to see my crying face.” She then talked about her long break for almost 3 years without an album and new project. She said as a singer, she felt really frightening and scary and almost can’t breathe because of stress.
MC, Park Jin Young then comforted her and said sometimes company will focus on profit and neglects the artistic elements, which is really unfortunate. And artist who is receiving high profits is hard to express their difficulties.
