Lee Hyori explains she didn't have any intention to portray 'Seoul' in a negative light

Lee Hyori
Returning with another successful track titled "Seoul," Lee Hyori sat down with JTBC 'Newsroom' to talk about her latest song and music video.

Lee Hyori explained how "'Seoul' represents the overall concept and emotions of the album."  She went on, "I lived in Seoul ever since I was 2-years old, for more than 30 years.  I still had distant memories, although I had left the city."

In contrast, she talked about her life now in Jeju Island, "My life on Jeju Island wasn't boring.  I just feel like I had hated Seoul."  Lee Hyori described, "It wasn't because Seoul was a dark and bad place, it was due to the fact that I carried a dark and congested heart while living there.  That's how I came to write the song 'Seoul.'"

The anchor then responded, "Despite what you had just mentioned, the music video did illustrate your hatred feelings towards Seoul."  Hearing this, the singer commented, "I didn't intend it to be that way, while I was filming Jeju Island looked really beautiful while Seoul was covered in yellow dust," she laughed jokingly.
