[English translation] Section TV Entertainment Report~ Lee Seung Gi

   Credit: seunggiairen

Originally a singer! Stars who made it big as an actor

English translation:

Male MC #1: These days,  there is a trend where there isn’t a fixed boundary line between a singer, actor, etc.

Caption: The boundary line which has disappeared in the entertainment industry.

Male MC #1: It’s to the point where viewers who are at least in their 50’s could say,”They (also) sang?”. They are already actors who are much closer to the acting industry.

Male MC #2: They’re stars who’ve already been put to the test and became a huge success.

Female MC: We could call him the original, Lee Seung Gi.  You know that Lee Seung Gi first made it big as a singer.

Caption: 2004 debut with “Because You’re My Woman”

Female MC: At the same time, he had prepared a drama. Simultaneously releasing his first album in 2004, he appeared in Nonstop 5. But I think this was a very smart move. You know how he had a fixed image of a model student, a comfortable image. He even took this directly into the drama.

Male MC #1: To Nonstop 5? I also appeared in Nonstop 5. (Caption says: There isn’t anything he hasn’t done)

Other MCs: Where? I think that was a different person.

Female MC: Called “The Famous Chill Sisters” aka “Famous Princesses”, he did a weekend drama. Back then, he was a friendly character who received so much love from lots of ahjummas.

Female MC: Afterwards, he appeared in another weekend drama called “Brilliant Legacy”. He shared the lead role with Han Hyo Joo. Back then with “Brilliant Legacy”, it received a viewership rating of 47.1%. This really isn’t easy to do.

Male MC #1: It’s really brilliant.

Female MC: Yes. Afterwards, there was “The Gu Family Book” and “The King 2 Hearts”. So he became definitely known as “MBC’s son” and went to the military.

Male MC #1: He’s coming back soon, isn’t he?

Male MC #2: October. He’s coming back in October.

Male MC #1: I see, so he’s coming back this year.

15.06.25 SBS Morning Wide ~ Voice Actress Thanks Seung Gi

Credit: SBS via I love Junsu on dclsg

English translation:

This is a program about people calling in and telling the station about the story behind someone they’d really like to thank. If they are chosen, they are awarded approx $975 US. A voice actress named Seo Yu-ri really wants to tell Lee Seung Gi “thank you and sorry”. She tells the interviewer that she’d really like to thank him through this program. The male interviewer says their first meeting wasn’t typical.  Seo Yu-ri was once a reporter for entertainment news. Since it hadn’t been long since she started, she was overflowing with enthusiasm and determined to get the job done right. She ended up having an interview with Lee Seung Gi and was very persistent with her questions to the point it could have been offensive and annoying.  However, Seung Gi took the questions in stride and handled them with aplomb.  Seo Yu-ri was very thankful but worried that he wouldn’t be happy to see her again. 

As Seo Yu-ri tried her hand at acting, she met Seung Gi on the set of YAAS in a cameo role. “There was a scene where I grab Lee Seung Gi’s hair and throw him onto a table”…”You know how there are times one needs to repeat scenes while filming a drama?” she said.  “He never showed a trace of dislike and despite the fact that I was only an extra, he was very considerate and treated me very well.” “Every time they called ‘CUT!’, I kept telling him ‘I’m sorry’, ‘I’m sorry'” but he said “It’s okay, ‘It’s okay’, you can grab (my hair) even harder.” “Seo Yu-ri said,”I was really thankful that he went to this length to say these words to me.”

Seo Yu-ri’s personal message to Lee Seung Gi: Hello, Mr. Lee Seung Gi. You probably remember me, right? It’s highly unlikely that you’d forget a woman who grabbed you several times by your hair. Even back then, everything was so chaotic that I didn’t have a chance to greet you properly. I remember that wrapping up filming was hectic. Thank you so much for treating me kindly. I think it’s a big relief that I’m able to thank you. I heard that you’d be active soon. That’s really good news. (I’m assuming she’s referring to his comeback as a singer) I will look forward to your cool activities.

Male interviewer: If you also have someone you’d like to thank, please dial #7004. We will choose a very moving story every month. We look forward to your participation.

Lee Seung Gi’s “And Goodbye” Used As BGM For Korean Shows

Seung Gi’s album was just released last Wednesday, but Korean shows have already used it as background music. In yesterday’s quiz show for Korean high school students called “Golden Bell”, it was played as contestants were eliminated from the game.  Korean Airens’ comments on this post in dclsg included : LOL! I feel sorry for the student, but it’s fitting, Totally appropriate! LOL!

In addition to Seung Gi’s cameo on the Kdrama, Producers, this past Saturday’s episode 10 featured his title song.  The writer must really like him to have him written into the show 4 times within 10 episodes. 🙂  You’ll hear his song as soon as you click play. In this clip, antis against  IU’s character, Cindy, gather at a cafe as IU joins the meeting to find out why they are so against her.
