Chanyeol from K-pop boy band EXO will be featured on the title track “Regards” from the upcoming album of legendary South Korean singer Lee Sun-hee, her agency Hook Entertainment confirmed on 3 June. The album will be released on 15 June.
For Lee Sun-hee, a 36-year veteran of the South Korean music scene and a veritable South Korean national treasure, it will the first ever collaboration with an idol from the boy band, although she has previously worked with artists like Tiger JK and Kanto - the last being featured on her 2014 album “Serendipity”.
Lee Sun-hee is also well-known because she was the fourth South Korean singer to perform at Carnegie Hall and was one of the few South Korean singers to ever perform in North Korea, as part of the “Spring is Coming” concert in Pyongyang in 2018, proving her status as “Queen of the vocals” in her home country.
Chanyeol from EXO is known as one of the best rappers among idol groups, and also for his passion for creating music. He is a multi-instrumentalist and a producer, so this collaboration is expected to be unique in many different ways.
EXO-Ls (the name of EXO’s fans) are amazed and proud and look forward for this collaboration
