Iconic K-pop singer Lee Hyo-lee, 32, is dating singer-songwriter Lee Sang-soon, 38. The two have been together for about five months.
They have known each other for about a year and started dating in June when Lee Sang-soon wrote the song "Remember" for Lee Hyo-lee's talent donation project.
It is said that they both are interested in protecting abandoned animals and the mutual concern led them to date. Lee Hyo-lee adopted a stray dog and named her Sun-sim, who often accompanies her.
Lee Hyo-lee is one of the top female singers in Korea, once a member of now-disbanded girl group Fin.K.L. Her solo album "10 Minutes" was a big hit in 2003. She has a sexy image as a singer, but at the same time has an easy-going nature shown in variety shows such as "Happy Together" and "Family Outing".
Lee Sang-soon is a musician who debuted as a member of a three-person band Rollercoaster in 1999. He studied jazz guitar at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and released a project album "Verandah Project" with Kim Dong-ryul last year. He now hosts a radio show featuring world music on EBS.
