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?

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.

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.
