Lee Soo-Young (born Lee Ji Yeon, April 12, 1979 in Seoul, South Korea) is a Korean ballad singer. She made her debut in 1999 in Korea with the hit “I Believe.” Currently, she has nine released albums and five mini-albums (labeled as Holiday in Lombok, Classic, As Time Goes By, An Autumn Day, Once) and sang six OSTs. She’s recognized in Korea for her powerful voice and although she rarely appears in her own music videos, she has earned a lot of popularity. She has also recently appeared on a number of variety shows, displaying her sense of humour and her ability to be comical and carefree, adding to her popularity. Today she is considered one of Korea’s most famous and accomplished ballad singers.

In 2001, she sang the official Korean version of the Final Fantasy X song “Suteki Da Ne” in Korean, titled “얼마나 좋을까” (“Eolmana Joheulkka”).

She released her seventh album, Grace, on January 21, 2006. It performed very well, able to shoot straight to the top of the charts. The popularity of the album led to a limited edition (repackage) release of Grace, of which only 30,000 copies were produced.

Lee has performed the new song written by her titled "Lavender" from her new album at the wedding ceremony of her close friend, Park Kyung-lim, Seo Min-jung.[1]

On October 5, 2010, she married her fiancé (age 41) whom she met through church.[2] They dated for about a year before tying the knot at the Villa de Bailey wedding house.[3] And in February 2011, she announced that was four months pregnant and would have her first child in the summer of 2011 and during this time she would only focus on preparing for the child and her radio show on KBS 2FM (89.1Mhz)[4]
