After her stunning success as one of the 'monster rookies' of the past few months, soloist Lee Hi is becoming more important in YG Entertainment's future plans.
According to a YG representative, CEO Yang Hyun Suk has personally directed Lee Hi to become fluent in Japanese within three months. This is in preparation for her upcoming Japanese debut, which will be held in conjunction with Avex.
As one of the top record labels in Japan, Avex has previously partnered up with YG Entertainment for 2NE1 and Big Bang's Japanese debuts.
The 'K-Pop Star' rookie's overseas debut is slated to take place within this year.
