Berocca Vitamin Ads~ Can’t Escape Them If You Live in Korea!

It’s been 7 years since I’ve left my home in the United States to work overseas here in my country of birth, South Korea. There’s not a single place you can go without seeing his image. The other day, I saw his KB CF on the side of a public bus. This was during a conversation with my uncle in the car and I squealed with delight…much to my uncle’s dismay. ^^ My fangirling has gotten worse now that I’m actually living in the same country as Seung Gi. It’s very difficult to go about daily life without seeing his image. Before last year’s Hope Concert, KB bank had his posters everywhere…and there are many KB banks near my residence. While Noonas over Flowers was airing, public buses had clips of the most recent episode playing. The supermarket is the best place to see Seung Gi…toothpaste, Cuckoo rice cookers, water filters.. My parents who visited from the USA last fall couldn’t believe their eyes at what had happened to their “professional and mature” daughter whom they had seen a few years ago. Snapping photos of Cuckoo products and asking for catalogs became second nature to me.

Meanwhile, my parents got nervous and started getting concerned as this was a side of me they had never seen before. LOL. Today, I happened to see Seung Gi’s Berocca CF at my hospital’s pharmacy and snapped 2 photos to share with you. Berocca vitamins cost 20,000 Won or about $20 US dollars per box. They’re like Alka-Seltzer…just drop one into cold water and watch the orange or lemon flavored tablet fizz and dissolve into a vitamin drink. The pharmacist knows I’m a huge Seung Gi fan and gladly obliged. She promised to give me the poster if she ever planned to replace it. ^^

You Are All Surrounded to Start Filming in Gyeongju this Weekend!

According to a dclsg member, You Are All Surrounded is scheduled to start filming at Mo High School in Gyeongju, South Korea, this weekend. Her comments state that she expected young Eun Dae Gu to be in the US 9th or 10th grade. However, after seeing the broadcasting booth, science lab, and other areas of the school, she said it was certain that he would be a high school student.  In Korea, the school system isn’t set up like the USA in simple grade levels. Up till 6th grade, it’s the same. However, starting from 7th grade to 9th grade, you are considered a middle schooler.  This member expected young Eun Dae Gu to be a 9th grader. From 10th to 12th grade, you are considered a high school student. Here are the 2 photos she uploaded:

English translation:

Hello (in Korean) . SOS (South Korean extraordinary evidence) Obviously today, we talk about another great character . Lee Seung Gi is a very influential singer since 2004 in South Korea . Some pictures. Lee Seung Gi is an SOS; a singer, MC, actor.. more than 1 role. Lee Seung Gi’s musical career debuted in 2004 with the album, “The Dream Of A Moth” and the debut song was “Because You’re My Woman”.   The song is well known because it basically talks about a love story between a boy and his nuna. Of course this song triggered a phenomenon called “love for nuna”. The Nuna effect for this song earned him the Best Newcomer Award at the Seoul Music Awards . In 2009, he released the song “Will You Marry Me”. It has become one of the most listened to tracks in South Korea since it was officially launched . This song won the Digital Single Bonsang Award. Another song  of Lee Seung Gi’s that is loved is one that he wrote and sang along with Kim Yuna (who was a figure skater for 19 years, and acclaimed in South Korea) for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He sang this song called “Smile Boy” and relaunched the official song for South Korea at the FIFA World Cup 2010.

In 2012, he  debuted in Japan with his first album titled “Time for Love”, which was translated in several ways: “Alone in Love” ,”Generation of Love,” and” the Era of Love”. There was also a lot of love in this song. A single from the album ranked first on the Oricon Daily Chart. Many Koreans continued to visit his Japan debuts.  In Japan, there are many who make videos and call Koreans.

In 2013, he took a break from music to focus more on his acting career . His artistic career officially started in 2006 with the drama The Infamous Chill Sisters which aired only on weekends. In 2009, he was the main character in the drama Brilliant Legacy. This drama  was a huge success in South Korea, which made Lee Seung Gi very famous for his acting career as well both within and outside of South Korea. In 2010, he was in the drama, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho / My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox (broadcast even in Italy), and this earned him the “Excellence in Acting”award, Top 10 Stars” award and “Best Couple ” award with Shin Min Ah. Lee Seung Gi is recently known in Italy for the famous drama “The Gu Family Book”. It is a fantastic and very popular one. A three television career. Let’s say he is varied in his work.

It was said that he was an MC in TV programs . The first role he played was the protagonist on 1 Night 2 Days, a variety show airing on Saturday night. He participated in evening broadcasts of “Strong Heart”. The first time was with his colleague, and when his colleague decided to leave the show,  he was left alone for a while . This program created great popularity which earned him awards at the SBS Entertainment Awards. He practically won everything including a beautiful girlfriend, Yoona, from Girls Generation. Another program that Lee Seung Gi took part in is Noonas over Flowers.

Lee Seung Gi graduated from Dongguk University within four years and has two years to earn a masters at the university. He carried the Olympic torch in London in 2012. He was with Samsung because it was mini sponsor olimpiadasi so he became known internationally not only in Korea and Japan but also in Europe. Now one thing that binds us to Seoul is something that we see every morning; he did an advertisement for pizza. This is because he eats very well . This issue ends here. If you want to talk about other Korean actors find us on facebook , twitter, etc. How did you know about Lee Seung Gi ?
