First of all, the titles of their songs are nearly identical. Lee Hyori's is "Bad Girls" and CL's first solo debut song will be "The Baddest Female."

Second, they both have been the leader of a 4-member female artist group. Lee Hyori is now years removed from her days as FIN.K.L, whereas CL is still an active member of 2NE1.

Lastly, they are trendsetting fashionistas that garner a great deal of attention and camera lenses. Lee Hyori is one of the original fashion leaders of K-pop who has always defied to be put in a box when it came to clothing. CL is the up-and-coming fashionista unafraid to try completely new looks.

CL's "The Baddest Female" is reported to have an extremely slow beats per minute at 70 and will be similar to traditional hip hop music, whereas Lee Hyori's album, already released, moved away from heavy hip hop.
