Lee Hi’s older sister passes the first round of “K-Pop Star 5”

The second episode of K-Pop Star 5 aired on November 29th where the full audition for Lee Hi‘s older sister was finally unveiled.

To the shock of YG Entertainment‘s representative Yang Hyun Suk as well as the rest of the judging panel, Lee Hi’s older sister Lee Hyurim (24) auditioned for the very show that helped Lee Hi rise to fame.

Singing Yoon Mi Rae‘s “Goodbye Sadness, Hello Happiness,” Lee Hyurim caught the audience’s attention with her ability to portray the emotions behind the lyrics.

Yoo Hee Yeol gave her a positive evaluation, giving her a pass to the next round, unfortunately J.Y. Park did not feel the same and did not pass her, feeling that she lacked something that would make her special amongst everyone else. Yang Hyun Suk, who manages Lee Hi under his label, gave Lee Hyurim a pass, noting, “Your high notes are more stable than your younger sibling. But you seem to lack a self-color. But there’s something inside. You need to pull it out.”

Lee Hyurim passes on to Round 2.
