Recently, online community and social media outlets have been buzzing about Lee Hyori's pre-debut interview with MBC News on the streets of Seoul.

The footage originally aired on New Year's Day on January 1, 1997, via MBC Newsdesk discussing the economic prospect in the new year where civilians voices were heard.

What caught netizens' attention during the street interview was the young 19-year-old Lee Hyori when she was a senior in high school.  

She was asked about her views on the economy for the new year, when she replied, "Since last year's economy was so bad, I think things will get better this year."

Despite the 20 year difference, the singer still looked beautiful.  Just a year after this interview, in 1998, Lee Hyori went on to debut as a member of legendary girl group Fin.K.L along with Ock Joo Hyun, Lee Jin, and Sung Yuri.

    For sure she had her eyes nose and eye smile tweaked. And now i see why she speaks the way she speaks and her habit with her mouth is the way it is lol. Her veneers are just in the way. I dont think she had full on dental work but she just put veneers on. One things for sure, shes always had her jowls..

    This woman does not age. What is it about the women in the 1st gen?

    hiroonakamura BigBlueagain 8 days ago

    they had better plastic surgeons back then, and prolly didnt do too many operations to fuck things up (like they prolly do now).
