This paper reports the results of Suzaku observation of the spectral variation of the black hole binary LMCX-1 in the soft state. The observation was carried out in 2009 from July 21 to 24. the obtained net count rate was ∼30countss-1 in the 0.5-50keV band with ∼10% peak-to-peak flux variation. The time-averaged X-ray spectrum cannot be described by a multi-color disk and single Compton component with its reflection, but requires additional Comptonized emissions. This double Compton component model allows a slightly larger inner radius of the multi-color disk, implying a lower spin parameter. Significant spectral evolution was observed above 8keV along with a flux decrease on a timescale of ∼104-105 s. By spectral fitting, we show that this behavior is well explained by changes in the hard Comptonized emission component in contrast to the maintained disk and soft Comptonized emission.
