Yuri, who was given the title “Genius Girl Singer,” is back with her 2nd album entitled “The Ring of Diamond” after being gone for 7 years.
Yuri debuted in 2001 and became famous for writing and composing all her songs in her first album even though she was still a high school student then. At that time, teen singers like BoA, Haneul and Joen were starting to gain popularity and Yuri was even dubbed as the “Korean Utada Hikaru,” but unfortunately, her album was not successful as expected.
Yuri also had problems with school and conflicts with her manager that resulted to her temporarily leaving the music scene.
Rising Creative, which is currently her label and the home of other singers like Byul and Sung Eun, said that now that she is back, people will be hearing lyrical ballad music and Yuri’s more mature and deeper voice.
