English translation of article Nunas Over Flowers

Lee Seung Gi had a preliminary meeting at his place and appears nervous already before departing for his trip to Croatia.  He said in another article that he would reveal the reason for this meeting at another time.

Na Young Seok, PD, ‘Nunas Over Flowers’ Hidden Subtitle ‘Seung Gi yah run away’

Seung Gi~yah run away

201310301842561

Part #2 to tvN’s ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ hidden subtitle has been revealed as ‘Seung Gi yah, run away’

On the 30th, at an interview with a certain network, Na Young Seok PD confirmed,“The new backpacking trip’s title will be ‘Nunas Over Flowers.’ The result of the preliminary meeting with the cast and crew ended with the conclusion that rather than the word “mother” or “grandma”, the word “nuna”(older sister/female)  appeared to fit best.

Thereafter, there was word about talk and laughter amongst the production crew who said that the subtitle should be ‘Seung Gi ya, run away’. This is because there would be a great deal of fun watching Lee Seung Gi’s flustered expression since he doesn’t understand the nunas’ wide range of emotions.

In addition, Na Young Seok PD said the following about the 4 actresses going on this trip: Yoon Yeo Jung, Kim Ja Ok, Kim Hee Ae, Lee Mi Yun. “The actresses’ real personalities may give off a haughty and arrogant image but they all share one quality in common: they have a young girls’ heart. They will be displaying a great deal of curiosity and cuteness.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Nunas Over Flowers’ team will be departing for Eastern Europe, Croatia, on the 31st. Na Young Seok PD and script writer Lee Woo Jung from the previous ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ will work together once again. This time, the actresses on the trip will be Yoon Yeo Jung, Kim Ja Ok, Kim Jee Ae, Lee Mi Yeon, and porter Lee Seung Gi who will appear in the first broadcast mid November.

Lee Seung Gi, End of the Year Advance Ticket Sales in First Place

This is basically a visual format of the Hope Concert article translation that I published earlier this morning.  They show you a chart with his concert being #1 on the weekly ticket sales chart. Here’s an English translation:

Singer and Actor Lee Seung Gi has risen as the king of year end concerts.  Among advance ticket sales, he has beaten distinguished sunbae singers such as Cho Young Pil and Kim Yeon Woo, ranking first place. Let’s meet him.  Cut to scenes of his concert. “He’s undoubtedly Lee Seung Gi. He earned the first place position among year end concerts fair and square. From the very first day of advance ticket sales, he displayed his explosive ticket power. In particular, he surprised everyone in the industry by surpassing distinguished singers such as Lee Seung Chul, Kim Yeon Woo, and Lee Soo Hwan. Please take a look at the weekly rankings chart. Lee Seung Gi’s Hope Concert is in first place followed by Brown Eyed Soul, K.Will, I.U., and Lee Seung Chul. He is surpassing even the strongest concert contenders.  Lee Seung Gi has been holding annual, exclusive concerts since 2009 at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium. As one who has been acknowleged for his music, acting, and variety shows among a variety of other spheres, it is expected that the star, Lee Seung Gi, will deliver a performance that will doubly move hearts and entertain.

English translation – Lee Seung Gi’s Hope concert tops weekly ticket sales

Here’s a translation from the most recent article on nate published online at 12:07am today KST.

Lee Seung Gi Hope Concert ‘Happiness,Anger,Sorrow, Joy’ Weekly Advance Ticket Sales #1 “The Crown Prince returns”

13 hope article

Lee Seung Gi 2013 Hope Concert’s -Happiness, Anger, Sorrow, Joy opening in addition to weekly advance ticket sales have risen to #1 and are gathering a great deal of attention.

Lee Seung Gi, after the 2013 drama ‘The Gu Family Book’, is in the middle of preparing for the sequel to ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’, ‘Backpacking Project Part 2’. From the first day that advanced ticket sales opened, he created a sensation and displayed his unchanging excellence in ticket power.

Facing the end of the year concert season are Cho Young Pil, Shin Seung Hoon, Lee Seung Chul, Yoon Do Hyun, and Park Jung Hyun who are distinguished sunbae (older veterans in the same field) musicians.  Despite the fact that they have just started ticket sales, he took the first place position fair and square. Rumor has it that it surprised a people in the industry to the point where they couldn’t hide their reactions.

All the more, PR related to the concert said that this was a highly unprecedented record for something (official ticket sales) that hasn’t even started.

Even though it’s still the beginning of advance ticketing, I anticipate that even in the future, expectations for Lee Seung Gi’s Concert will continue.

Since 2009, this is the 5th year that this exclusive annual concert has opened at the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium. Lee Seung Gi is nearly unparalleled in his position as a male vocal soloist. Every year, in as much as he carries out his concerts with a special theme, the expectations and satisfaction of his audience are just as high.

Having been acknowledged for his diverse repertoire which is typical of Lee Seung Gi, his concerts are well received. They are certainly multifaceted and sophisticated with presentations which deeply move and entertain.

Musician Lee Seung Gi’s concerts are among the high quality performances because they leave a good impression on the audience due to a mega stage reminiscent of a festival and his powerful music, which is a given.  They  are also well organized with sophisticated and varied, special stage events. His excellent winter concert is also an opportunity to confirm singer Lee Seung Gi’s merits.

You will be able to confirm the music, acting, variety, and a diverse genre that surpasses all with an energetic  and new performance  at the 2013 Lee Seung Gi Hope Concert- Happiness, Anger, Sorrow, Joy. It will take place on November 30th to December 1st for two days at the Olympic Gymanstics Stadium.

English translation – Lee Seung Gi appointed as Hanwoo Keeper

Around 12pm KST today, Lee Seung Gi was appointed as the “Hanwoo Keeper” by Korea’s Hanwoo Board.  Here’s a translation of the most recent article from nate.com

Lee Seung Gi is becoming the Hanwoo Keeper…a challenge for a new food show?

hanwoo keeper

Lee Seung Gi, who demonstrated the powerful fragrance of masculine beauty in MBC’s Monday/Tuesday drama ‘The Gu Family Book’, took the lead in promoting Hanwoo (Korean beef).  He will be appointed as Hanwoo Keeper on October 30th, 11am KST at the Seoul Seo Gong-dong Plaza Hotel by the Hanwoo Board. Starting with Chairman Kang Sung Gi, an appointment plaque  and a hanwoo gift set is planned to be presented to him.

The Hanwoo Board (Chairman Kang Sung Gi) stated,”Lee Seung Gi was appointed as Hanwoo Keeper because his image as ‘The Nation’s Hoonnam’, (Hoonnam is used to describe a good looking man who is also sincere, considerate, and kind) that is loved by people of all ages, is compatible with hanwoo’s image of trustworthiness.”

Added to his role as Hanwoo Keeper, Lee Seung Gi will be appearing in TV and radio ads in addition to actively participating in various events promoting the consumption of hanwoo.  Plans are in the works for him to actively promote the taste and quality that only hanwoo posesses.

Meanwhile, Lee Seung Gi is working with Na Yeong Seok P.D. from ‘1Night2Days’ again after a long time. He was chosen to be a porter on ‘Actresses Special Backpacking Trip’ which will be broadcasted in mid November on tVN. In this program, Yoon Yeo Jung (age 66), Kim Ja Ok (age 62), Kim Hee Ae (age 46), and Lee Mi Yeon (age 42) were casted to appear on the show and will be leaving for Croatia soon for their backpacking trip.

English translation – Lee Seung Gi – Actresses Special, leaving for Croatia on the 31st

Lee Seung Gi is leaving for Croatia at the end of this month, just as he had announced during the Heritory fan signing event on the 25th in Bucheon, Seoul. Here’s a translation of an article from nate.com.

croatia 31

tvN’s Backpacking Special Part#2 “Actresses Special (working title)” team will depart for Croatia this coming 31st (of October). Singer Lee Seung Gi including Yoon Yeo Jung, Kim Ja Ok, Kim Hee Ae, and Lee Mi Yeon are preparing to depart for Croatia to film for 10 days before returning.   Because this destination has a more exotic and romantic atmosphere, there is a great deal of anticipation from the actresses and Lee Seung Gi.

The previous backpacking trip, Part #1 ‘Grandpas Over Flowers’ was very popular because the scenery was in Paris and Taiwan. In addition, Lee Seo Jin resurfaced as a porter so all eyes are on comparing this to the upcoming sequel. They are planning to arrive in Croatia via Istanbul, Turkey.  This trip will be broadcasted this coming mid November.

English translation of video clip showing Lee Seung Gi at the KB LPGA STAR Championship


Credit: seunggiairen

Lee Seung Gi is a busy man! This afternoon, he was at Young Jung-do, Incheon for the 2013 KLPGA Tour STAR Championship. It took place on the 72nd golf range. Most of the press photos were taken around 5pm KST.

Here’s a brief translation of the most important parts:

The male commentator states that singer/entertainer Lee Seung Gi is at the sports arena. There were many KB events that day. There was also a “Hope Scholarship Event” for boys and girls. The lady is announcing the presentation of the scholarship. The male commentator says that golfer Ahn Song Hee, the representative of all the golfers at that event, will be coming up to the front to present the scholarship to student Sohn Hyun Soo. The money for the scholarship was collected during the event and the male commentator states that the total should be approximately 9,400 Man Won. 1 Man won is equal to approx. $9.40 US dollars so the scholarship is approximately $88,400 US dollars.

The female announcer states that KB financial group CEO Lee Myung Rook and Lee Seung Gi will be presenting the award to the grand prize winner. The winner is pro golfer Lee Seung Hyeon. The male commentator mentions how it’s a fateful moment because the similarities in the names of the winner and Lee Seung Gi make it sound like the two are brother and sister. The chairman is assisting the winner in wearing a jacket in yellow, which is symbolic of the KB group. The male commentator states “Wow! Isn’t this a big trophy!” The female announcer mentions that it is made out of pure silver. At 2:16, the other male commentator points out Seung Gi’s heodang moment and says “he has missed the timing for presenting her with the flower wreath and is now presenting it to her” LOL! 🙂 He finally hangs it around her neck and the female announcer says that they will be taking commemorative photos. The winner also gets a cash prize of 140,000,000 Won which is approximately $131,800 US dollars. The male commentators say how it’s a relief that the prize is finally being presented. The 2nd male commentator states how the winner Lee Seung Hyeon was very bashful and happy at the same time a while ago when she made the championship hit and has an introverted personality. They conclude by remarking that on the very left next to Lee Seung Gi is pro golfer Yang Yoo Won who is part of the KB group.

Brief English translation of Heritory Fan Signing Event at Hyundae Department Store

Credit: YeGreen

In the beginning of this video, you’ll notice that the fans are leaning forward on the table and the security personnel says, “Leaning forward is not allowed”.  At 0:55, a fan shouts out “Seung Gi Oppa, you’re good looking!”. Towards the end at 2:10 you’ll see Yoshimoto Banana’s photostorybooks and fans in the background say,”Look at that, don’t you think they’re going to give them out because we’re participating? I don’t think they’re giving them out?  Why did they bring them? It might be for the remaining people. Then why did they bring them?

English and Japanese translation of Heritory Fan Signing Event at Hyundae Dept. Store

Here’s a fancam of Seung Gi’s Heritory fan signing event tonight at the Hyundae Department Store in Bucheon, South Korea. Bucheon is located 1 hr Southwest of Seoul by car. I like the lively BG music for this video because its repeating chorus is “I will love you forever”. Yes we will, Seung Gi!! Here’s a translation of a speech he makes towards the end of the fancam.

He has a low voice in comparison to the screaming fans so I’m not 100% certain of what he said,  after thank you, but it sounded like he said this:

SG: Yes, thank you. The people in the corridor,you’ve been waiting a long time and you didn’t get an autograph,right?
Fans: YES!!!
SG: Please wait for one again next time. (laughs)…
Fans: (laughter)
SG: I am very grateful and I’m glad to be seeing you after such a long time
Fan: I also like it (seeing Seung Gi) too!
SG: Yes, I like it too.
Fan: screaming for attention with comments, one female voice mentions how he looks good
SG: I will probably be leaving for Europe at the end of this month.
Fans: Ooohh!!!
SG: I will return alive, safe and sound. Also, at the end of this year, I’ll see you at the Seoul Concert. I’ll be preparing for it very much so I ask for your assistance. Thank you. To those fans who have tickets, this year will probably be the best performance ever so I will prepare just as much. Thank you.
Fan: Seung Gi Oppa!
SG: waves and acknowledges that fan and then turns to wave to fans on the other side.


Here’s a Japanese translation for Airens in Japan:


ヘリトリーファン サイン会 2013年10月25日

イ・スンギ: はい, ありがとうございます。 廊下でずっと待ってくれている人たち、サインをもらえなかったですよね。

ファン はいもらってないです!!!

イ・スンギ: 次回まで待ってください(笑)

ファン: (笑い声)

イ・スンギ 久しぶりにみなさんに会えて嬉しいです。とても感謝しています。

ファン : わたしも会いたかったです!

イ・スンギ: はい, 僕もです。

ファン: 気を引こうとキャーキャー言う声。1人の女性が“かっこいい”と声援を送る。

イ・スンギ: おそらく今月末にヨーロッパに出発します。

ファンおぉー!!

イ・スンギ: 安全に、健康に、生きて帰ってきます。 それから、今年の終わりにソウルコンサートでみなさんにお会いします。 その準備をたくさんしています。それでみなさんの助力をお願いしています。 コンサートに来てくれる人たち、 今年は今までで最高のパフォーマンスをお見せできると思います。 それでたくさん準備をします。ありがとうございました。

ファン: スンギさーん!

イ・スンギ: 手を振ってそのファンにこたえる。 そして反対側のファンにも手を振るため、そちら側を向く。
