MBC Entertainment's 'Mask King' aired a brand new episode on July 16 and it was revealed that the 'Samba Girl' was none other than the much-talented Lee Hi from YG Entertainment!
In the clip, Lee Hi is seen covering BoA's "My Name" for the panel and the people in attendance. As soon as she started singing, the panel's jaw dropped to the floor. The way Lee Hi sang the song was completely different from the original song and she was also able to embed her own style to the song - a style only she could do. Everyone in the studio simply just enjoyed the performance while grooving to the tune.
After revealing her identity, she explained why she wanted to come on this particular show. She said, "When I first debuted, I won first places on music shows and such but wasn't too confident. I was unsure on whether people really enjoyed my music or not. But then, my mom watched the 'Mood Maker' perform my song "Breathe" and suggested that it'll be really nice if I could appear on the show. Her encouragement gave me the courage to come on the show."
She continued, "My voice is actually not in the best condition right now but regardless, I had a good time because I never sang with a mask on before. I thought people would recognize me as I walked onto the stage so I put my head down on purpose. But it was really fun seeing everyone confused when I started singing."
