Hyori has always told the public that she had been picked off the streets. She used to say that a manager from DSP Entertainment saw her and her friend taking sticker pictures, and asked if she wanted to be a celebrity.
However, a casting director Kim Soohyun, who had taken Lee Hyori and Sung Yuri of Fin.K.L and Eugene of S.E.S. to stardom, told the truth behind her audition. Lee Hyori had been an H.O.T. fan and he had taken her to S.M. Entertainment. She was, in fact, the first S.E.S. candidate that was casted. However, Hyori did not make the cut to be in S.E.S. and she ran away. This is where DSP Entertainment took her up, paid for her contract fees, and casted her into Fin.K.L.
Seems like Hyori had been lying all this time to her fans. Fans are disappointed that she has been lying to them for so long over a matter that does not even seem so crucial. Many want to know what else she could have lied about. Do you feel betrayed by her lie?
