26 September 2016, Hong Kong – Seoulite Lee Hi, demonstrated her unrivalled music talent at the “2016 LEE HI SEOULITE SHOWCASE IN HONG KONG” on September 25. She delivered a powerful yet dynamic performance with her live band members and amazed all audiences with her soulful voice.
The much anticipated showcase kicked off with “Breathe”. The title track of her latest album [Seoulite] topped the iTunes Single Chart in 8 countries upon release in March. The fans also showed their appreciation through a fan banner project – “Thank you for your effort”.
Lee Hi then greeted the crowd with her simple yet impressive Cantonese, expressing her gladness in meeting her fans. She shared that Hong Kong is a beautiful city, and would love spending her holidays visiting in the future. After the short interaction, Lee Hi resumed her soulful performance with “Up All Night” and “Special”; the two great hits that EPIK HIGH’s Tablo and BLACK PINK’s Jennie used to feature in.
After that, Lee Hi further heated up the atmosphere with one of the fans-favorite “Rose”. Her sultry voice and smooth rap sent the fans moving their bodies to the groovy rhythm.
Since Lee Hi’s birthday is on September 23, MC Maria led the fans in singing a birthday song for her during the interview session. All these while the fans held a specially designed birthday banner, delivering the best post-birthday celebration to Lee Hi!
The performances continued with an amazing medley of western classics, including “Mama Do”, “Bust Your Windows” and “Mercy”. This was a special stage prepared for the Manila and Hong Kong showcases. Lee Hi also prepared the popular Mandarin song “Xiao Xing Yun” for the Shanghai and Taipei shows.
The encore session started with the performance of “Turn It Up”, where the fans shouted out her name “Hi” loudly. Seoulite Lee Hi then chose her most popular master piece “126.96.36.199” to conclude the showcase following “I am Different”. “188.8.131.52” is the debut single of Lee Hi, which dominated major music charts including Melon, Olleh Music, Mnet, Naver and Daum upon its release. This also won Lee Hi the title of “monster rookie” soon after her grand debut in 2012.
After the show, Seoulite Lee Hi held a Meet & Greet event to take photos with 100 lucky fans. The fans were extremely excited about having this rare opportunity to get closer to their favorite idol, whilst Lee Hi also expressed her sincere gratitude to the fans for their enthusiastic love and support!
