The concert will feature a fusion of traditional and modern music to celebrate the festive mood on Christmas. They will play popular songs such as The Beatles'"Let It Be" and Baek Ji-young's "Don't Forget", along with carols such as "White Christmas".

Lee is also a professional gayageum player, and was named a gayageum prodigy by the Kumho Art Center, the most prestigious musical foundation in Korea. She majored in Korean traditional music at Seoul National University.

Lee won the 50th Miss Korea pageant and finished fourth in the Miss Universe pageant in 2007.
