The release date of the Sexy Queen Lee Hyori's new solo album may once again be postponed.
Originally, Hyori had planned on releasing a new album earlier this summer to make her comeback as a recording artist.

However, the album release was pushed back to this fall, and now it looks as though it will be difficult for her to release anything new this year.
An official from Hyori's agency B2M Entertainment remarked, "We are still working on releasing a new album, however, we have not finished gathering all the songs for the album and have still been unable to begin recording. At this rate, it may become difficult to release anything at all this year."
Knowing Lee Hyori's perfectionist personality, the insider may be right.
The official continued "We have yet to receive a song that she likes," and that "Hyori seeks perfection in everything she does, so she will not rush herself trying to release a new album in a hurry. Her being busy filming her new show "Golden 12" is another reason why the album got pushed back."
But a new release isn't completely out of the question. It's possible for them to begin recording the minute they find a song they feel is "daebak (jackpot)."
"In the end, Hyori will be making all of the final decisions," the official continued.
Lee Hyori has temporarily stepped away from the music scene after her album H-Logic release back in April of 2010 was swept up in a plagiarism scandal, and her temporary break had undoubtedly had affected the activities of other female solo artists.
Representatives from the music industry are highly anticipating Lee Hyori's comeback, as the market is currently being dominated by idol groups. A comeback by a sexy female solo artist such as Lee Hyori to the current music scene will not only help other female artists, it can be a chance for other genres of music to break through.
Hyori is currently appearing on SBS "You & I" with Jung Jae Hyung.
