On September 25, Billboard.com released its annual list of "21 under 21", a compilation of 21 stars under the age of 21 that are prophesied to become one of the biggest stars we'll ever come to see.

In the past years, several K-pop standouts made it to Billboard's prestigious list, including 4Minute's HyunA (#17 in 2011) and the Wonder Girls (#16 in 2010).

The 17 year old singer raised the K-pop flag and ranked number 20 this year.

As to why she's one of this year's hottest minors, Billboard said:

"During the past 12 months, K-pop newcomer Lee Hi racked up chart successes rivalling established Korean idols. The soulful vocalist first appeared on the K-Pop Hot 100 in October via a collabo with hip-hop trio Epik High, 'It's Cold,' a No. 1 hit. Lee Hi followed up with her Duffy-esque debut solo single '1,2,3,4,' ruling three weeks atop the K-Pop chart. Fast-forward to March, throwback-inspired LP "First Love" spawned two additional K-Pop smashes: The catchy, No. 4-peaking 'It's Over'; and melancholic dance track 'Rose,' her third No. 1. Plus, the songbird performed with PSY at his Happening Concert, where he unveiled his record-breaking "Gentleman" video."

Lee Hi now joins the ranks of Nick Jonas (2010-2011), Demi Lovato (2012), Miley Cyrus (#3 this year), Justin Bieber (#2), and One Direction (#1) in the roster of underage artists that are more than deserving of their own magnanimous spotlight.
