If you’re a fan of Korean variety shows, you might recognise Lee Hyori from shows like Family Outing and Happy Together. The singer, who started out in the industry in 1998 as a girl group member, has proven her star power over the years, thanks to her no-holds-barred personality.
Which was why, fans were devastated when she announced that she would be taking a break from showbiz in 2015, even deleting all her social media accounts as she needed “time for herself”. But she has returned stronger than ever, complete with a reality TV series, Hyori’s Bed & Breakfast (available on Netflix), where she transforms her Jeju house into a bed and breakfast facility, hosting guests from all walks of life. Apart from dishing out life advice once in a while, she also gives viewers a look into her daily life, as well as her loving relationship with her husband, Lee Sang Soon.
Here are five things you need to know about Hyori.
