— by Im Eun-byel: Korean singer Lee Hee-moon sometimes goes onstage in gender-bending attire. Wearing a curly wig and high heels, Lee commands the stage, backed by a rock band.

The music, however, is inspired by traditional Korean music.

Though gugak — Korean traditional music — singers are usually associated with an old-fashioned image, Lee sets himself apart with his music, manner and appearance.

The Korea Herald met with the 44-year-old singer for an interview at the Grand Hyatt Seoul on Wednesday. He was a panelist at the 10th Culture Communication Forum organized by the Corea Image Communication Institute.
