Lee Hi appeared on the August 20 broadcast of SBSs Party People and shared the sad truth behind her song Breathe.
The singer said, Back when I released that song, I had problems with breathing. I was suffering from a slight panic disorder, and it always felt like I was suffocating.
She continued, I didnt even know I wasnt breathing properly. When I finally realized it, I tried breathing using a plastic bag but ended up going to the hospital. I hoped that the song Breathe would help those who are exhausted and have difficulty breathing.
Park Jin Young responded to the courageous confession and said, Things like breathing and your heart beating are natural to your body. It must be difficult if one of these things dont continue to work.
Lee Hi then revealed the most difficult moment for her, saying, I wasnt able to do what I wanted to do. I really wanted to sing, but I couldnt do that freely.
Following this, Lee Hi performed Breathe and shed tears from the rush of emotions after recounting the hard times in her life. Following the performance, Park Jin Young and the other guests comforted her with kind words. She also performed Dangerous Woman with Baek A Yeon, who was also a guest on the show.
