Female Announcer:  Also, Lee Seung Gi wore a green uniform in “The King 2 Hearts” and made viewers’ hearts flutter. With a cute face and appearing dashing in military uniform, he captured women’s hearts as the action increased.  Currently, he’s really wearing a military uniform and fulfilling his military duty. Lee Seung Gi, see you again when you are discharged in October.

[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.

[English] Message From Seung Gi

Seung Gi uploaded a message on his official website early this afternoon around 11am KST. His messages are always uplifting and make me forget about the long work week. ^^

Everyone worked hard on the 6th album. Thank you~ ^^

I’m extremely glad to see you Airen^^ ㅋㅋ
A big event called the 6th album has passed in June. Without us knowing, it’s already a more stable July. 

Personally, I’m proud that fans like the 6th album as much as the amount of work put into it. 
Although I’m thankful to you for always cheering me on, this time for some reason, I felt an even deeper sense of gratitude.. 
It’s probably due to it being an album that has been released after a long period of time. 
Although it has always been that way, for this album, not only the fans in Korea, 
Including Airens in China, Japan, as well as so much support from the entire world 
I sincerely thank you^^

I should give out free hugs to relay my thankful heart…there’s no way to do so…gosh…ㅋㅋㅋ

Although you may have suddenly heard through today’s news
Soon I will be returning to variety in a new format.
I always wanted to do variety, with this opportunity 
I feel I have found exciting work to do in a long time after mustering up all my energy.

Well, that won’t be the end of it so always have expectations ~~^^
Since I will look for work that my Airens will enjoy and bring them happinessㅎㅎ

Always be healthy since you will have to cheer me on a lot. For the remaining days in July, rest well and eat healthy food.  
Because I will have you use up all that strength ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Thank you always and I love you. 
Airens are the best! 
I love you (He wrote in Hangul but read out loud it is Chinese ~ Wo Ai Ni Men ~ 我爱你们 ) & Aishiteru (Japanese for I love you ~ 愛してる) (I don’t know the letters on the keyboard so in Korean…Professors, please translate)
Along with the words Let’s meet soon….^^

2015.07.14 ~ Sina Exclusive Interview ~ Lee Seung Gi *UPDATED W/Tweet Compilation*

Credit: Sina

This is a long interview. I’ll upload it for now and post my twitter compilation here for now.

Sina interview: SG says he could’ve starved to death if he didn’t become a celebrity. Say his ddukbokki is really delicious & would like a chance to make it for others,really likes Chinese cuisine, just had some last night,but can’t eat it everyday because he will gain weight.

SG thinks Chinese Running Man seems fun. Unexpectedly found many ballad songs in Chinese music. Would like to work with Fan BingBing. There are many distinguished Chinese directors. Would like to work with them. I think that I made an album worth keeping in one’s collection. I couldn’t show you my singer side due to acting throughout the year. (YAAS & Love Forecast)

There are many songs of my personal taste in the album but “And Goodbye” is a song that gives off the feel of “this is the title song”. SG: It’s the easiest song for the public to listen to. Compared to past ballads, it’s very rhythmical & inside the lyrics, it is emotional. Please look forward to an upgraded work from me. I’m getting many drama offers. I’m looking for a different image. In my future work,I would like to play a character that shows a different side from me. Like a villain. Many people say that people w/upright image who plays a villain is scary. If that opportunity arises, I would like to take it up.

SG: I exercise daily because my body is the type that gains weight easily. I go to the dermatologist to take care of my looks, watch movies. When I work on a project, I meet many composers, play many instruments, I think I do a lot of learning. Other than that, I dine out, drink..I really like Chinese food but if I ate it everyday, I’d gain weight. I regularly eat it on special days.

I would like to open a weibo account. I am inexperienced at managing SNS so I hope my agency can take care of it. I think I will open one when I am active in China. I would like a chance to have a live fan meeting or concert. Also hope to see many contents in China. Think Running Man is very entertaining. Unexpectedly, China has many songs that have similar emotions like my songs. I thought only dance songs were popular.

Even though there is a large age gap, there are many actresses I like ~ Zhao Wei, Gong Li, & Zhang ZiYi. Learning basic Chinese~ Chinese nicknames for him lost in translation ~ why am I called a steam bun? I’m curious. Sounds friendly. Nothing is set in stone but can promise you that I will meet you with new contents. Thanks. Good bye!

[English] HD Video~ KWAVE June Issue : Lee Seung Gi Pictorial Photoshoot Sketch & Interview

Credit: k wave

Seung Gi: Hello readers who love Kwave, I’m Lee Seung Gi.

Q: How have you been?

Seung Gi: Lately, I’ve diligently been preparing a new project. In my free time, I’ve been watching many movies, attending school, and when I’m at home, cooking! Since there are so many cooking shows lately, I think I cook at home whenever there is something I want to try making at least once.

Q: Now that summer has arrived, what would you recommend as a tourist destination within Korea?

Seung Gi: It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a vacation so I don’t know of an exact place I should recommend. I think there are so many nice tourist spots in Korea. Personally, I would like to visit Seoraksan (mountain) now that the weather is really nice and a very refreshing season has arrived. It would be nice if many people visited the mountains and the sea.

Q: Your feelings about today’s pictorial photoshoot?

Seung Gi: Chief photographer Kim Young Joon took such good photographs so I believe they will come out magnificently. Since it’s been a while, it will be compared with last year’s (Kwave photoshoot). I also worry that it has to turn out a bit cooler as people watch last year’s photoshoot.

Closing remarks by Seung Gi: Up until now, it’s been Lee Seung Gi. You’ll be able to see me in the June issue of KWAVE. Please continue to give lots of love to KWAVE. I hope you have a happy, exciting, and refreshing summer.  Be happy~~
