Lee Soo-jung crowned winner of ‘K-Pop Star’
Lee Soo-jung has won the reality singing competition show “K-Pop Star 5.”
The finale that aired Sunday featured a showdown between finalists Lee and Ahn Ye-eun. Lee clinched a resounding victory, earning a perfect score from all three judges for the first time in the program’s history.
After a subpar performance from Lee in the first round of the final battle, fans were expecting Ahn to take the title. But Lee bounced back with a second-round upset.
Ahn, who had a stellar performance of her own with the Stevie Wonder classic “Part-Time Lover,” had to settle with second place after Lee’s unprecedented perfect-score performance of the song “Sticker,” which was composed by her opponent Ahn.
“I feel so good and very thankful for the many friends I got to know throughout the show,” Lee said.
The singer decided to join Antenna, the talent agency of Yoo Hee-yeol, one of the three panel judges.
