Lee Jung-hyun is one of 20 singers of the Beijing 2008 Olympic theme song and the first foreigner.
Lee's agency said Thursday that Lee will sing the theme song along with 19 Chinese singers. She went to China on Sunday to record her part of the song written by Guo Feng and participate in shooting the music video.
Lee said she is "honored" to sing the Olympic song. "I appreciate Chinese fans' constant interest and will reciprocate by being more active as a singer."
Lee is hugely popular in China with her a couple of songs from her first album released in 1999. Currently she is often on TV in China, visiting at least twice a month.
The Olympic theme song will promote the 2008 Olympic Games.
