1TYM member Song Baek Kyoung wrote a song for YG's rookie star Lee Hi. The news that one of Lee Hi's songs was written by the 1TYM member was revealed on the March 27 episode of SBS' One Night of TV Entertainment.
The show hosts met with Song Baek Kyoung, who revealed that he is running a popular and successful curry restaurant with 1TYM co-member Oh Jin Hwan. The pair already has three branches of the restaurant. Song Baek Kyoung said that former YG label mates Big Bang and 2NE1 often visit the restaurant because they love curry. When he was asked, "Do [the band members] pay you?" he laughed and said, "The label pays but not them, so I always get money from them."

During the interview, Song Baek Kyoung talked about his relationship with another YG star: Lee Hi. He revealed that he wrote a song for Lee Hi, "I went to visit Teddy at his studio, and finished one song. I want to start on music again, even if it's just something small."
Song Baek Kyoung may get the chance to work on something else again soon, given the popularity of Lee Hi. Although Lee Hi only debuted recently, she is currently one of the most popular solo girl artists on the music charts.
Lee Hi's album included input from a number of other talented producers, including Lydia Paek, Masta Wu, Choice 37, Tablo, and Teddy.
Even major international news sources have been taking interest in Lee Hi. As we reported earlier, MTV US revealed its excitement for Lee Hi's soon-to-drop single "Rose," which happens to be the track produced by Song Baek Kyoung. MTV K, the K-Pop branch of the popular music network, acknowledged Song Baek Kyoung's role on the track, writing in an article about Lee Hi's "Rose" teaser, "Kudos to 1TYM's Song Baek Kyung, who produced "Rose." (Long time no music, dude! We've really missed your remixes.)"
Lee Hi's album, "First Love," will be fully released on March 28.
