Lee Mijoo is ready to expand her career after leaving Lovelyz.
Lee Mijoo first conquered the K-pop industry when she debuted with Lovelyz in November 2014. However, it did not last long as she left Woollim Entertainment in November 2021 – seven years after her debut.
Following her departure, she joined Yoo Jae Suk’s agency, Antenna, and became part of more variety shows since then.
This time, she plans to make a return to the music industry – but as a soloist.
Lee Mijoo Preparing For Solo Debut
Industry representatives hyped Lee Mijoo’s fans by announcing on Wednesday that the idol-turned-comedian would make a solo debut.
Initial reports assumed that she would release a solo track in July or early August. They added that Lee Mijoo has been receiving songs from several producers that fit the summer season concept that she wants.
Antenna agency confirmed them in a statement but clarified that no details have been finalized yet.
“It is true that she is preparing for her solo [debut. However, details such as the schedule and concept have not been finalized yet,” the company said.
It mirrored what she said during her appearance on the radio program 2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show. According to Lee Mijoo, everything remains a secret, and that nothing has been decided yet.
She then asked fans to wait a bit as she would soon bring good news.
Lee Mijoo’s Solo Debut Aligns With Her Plans
Talks about Lee Mijoo’s solo debut came months after the singer proclaimed that she wants to become part of different entertainment areas this year.
She told Marie Claire Magazine that she is determined to pursue entertainment, music, and acting careers after becoming a cast member of Yoo Jae Suk's show and Lovelyz's split.
Aside from her solo debut, she previously added Toyote (a project of Hang Out With Yoo) as her group, alongside Haha and Yoo Jae Suk. The project group was created through the MBC entertainment program and has recently released its track Still I Love You.
