Director Lee Myung Han: ..how to incorporate him..
Lee Seung Gi: Me? Do what? You saw how I wasn’t very useful. (in Noonas over Flowers)
MC: “Where can I ask you something?”
Seung Gi: “I’m in charge of all sorts of reservations…to that extent.”
MC: So you’re in the middle of planning your next project?
Lee Myung Han: In any case, Na Young Seok PD is in a position where he has to focus on his next project while I have to slowly think about mine. So, I have to work together with Lee Seung Gi, right?
MC: You’re doing your casting here?
Seung Gi: Next time, I’d like to do something intellectual.
MC: Today, your hairstyle looks very nice.
Lee Myung Han: For the first time since I was born, I had the help of someone called a coordinator (Cody).
Lee Seung Gi: All 4 guests underwent makeup since they were appearing live. To begin with, Na Young Seok PD’s makeup is really obvious. His face must not be the type to absorb makeup well. Also, for Director Lee Myung Han, I wondered why his face was suddenly so pale, it’s because he had a lot of BB cream applied.
MC: You should have had some shading done before coming out on stage.
Lee Seung Gi: They should have toned down the sides for you.
MC: Na Young Seok PD nim’s face gets really red whenever this kind of topic is brought up. You must have a lot of shyness.
Na PD: I tend to have inhibitions.
Lee Seung Gi: That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard.
MC: Now, Lee Seung Gi has ties with all four of our guests.
Lee Seung Gi: That’s correct. In 2004, as I appeared on Mnet during my debut period with Shin Hyung Gwan PD, he was doing a music program at that time. In addition, Kim Young Ho PD was also doing a music program so that’s how I met them during my youth. Also, Lee Myung Han…(audience laughter as screen shows Seung Gi in bell bottoms during his debut period)
MC: That’s 2004. Oh, how young!
Shin Hyung Gwan PD: It’s 2004. That’s when we first created Mnet Countdown in 2004.
MC: Wow, he was already a prized man back then.
Shin Hyung Gwan PD: He was working with me and Kim Yong Beom PD. I think he was still in his teens.
Na PD: Yes, he was in his 3rd year. (of high school)
MC: I see, his 3rd year. Wow, his pants are extremely wide! Enough for the wind to enter.
Lee Seung Gi: My fashion role model was Kim Jang Hoon sunbaenim so I wore wide jeans. Also, I try not to work with Mnet if possible because they have so many scenes of me. So, I don’t know when or how they’ll be used, but in any case, I’m a bit nervous today. Also, as for Lee Myung Han PD and Na Young Seok PD, as many of you already know, I did an outdoors variety show (refers to 1N2D) with them for many years and we shared many good times back then. Even now, things are going well, this is not to say that we don’t share good times now. I feel very happy because I shared my growth period with all 4 PD’s.
MC: Wow, it’s not an easy feat to have connections with all four PDs. All four of them will also know many of your secrets so as we continue, please reveal them one by one.
Lee Seung Gi: Yes, since it’s only the opening, let’s wait until everyone’s nerves settle down.
MC: Yes, slowly. I don’t have any ties with any of the PDs. Today is the first time I’ve met them. I’ve made a PD-guest connection with them. Ok, we will go into a deeper discussion as the program continues.
