Seung Gi: Personally, he is someone I have respected for a long time and more than anyone else, I felt that I was meeting a star.
Q: While filming ‘The Gu Family Book’, we heard that you asked for advice?
Seung Gi: For starters, since this was my first time doing a sageuk, I felt that I needed to seek advice. So, I made an appointment with just teacher and myself at a certain restaurant. I was certain that I made the appointment for 12:30pm but he called me at 11:30am telling me that he had arrived. (Everyone in the background tells Lee Soon Jae that he had gone too early~so I couldn’t hear Seung Gi clearly here) Since he was at the restaurant an hour ahead of time, I rushed to get there. All of a sudden, teacher opened the script and he did a reading of it for me out loud.
At 0:41, the caption under Seung Gi says: “At the restaurant, he personally shows sageuk acting”
Seung Gi: Most probably, everyone around us heard. I was in the middle of eating and I..(he laughs)
Caption in white as Seung Gi says this: An embarrassing yet moving moment
Seung Gi: Thanks to teacher’s advice, I think that it was a big help towards ‘The Gu Family Book’.
Caption in white as Seung Gi says this: Thanks to passionate teaching, it became a big help to acting in a sageuk…
At 0:56, the caption says: What kind of hoobae is Lee Seung Gi?
Lee Soon Jae: I met him for the first time and he introduced himself as a singer. He was serious/earnest.
Caption at 1:04 reads: His attitude towards acting was serious/earnest.
Lee Soon Jae: Also, he seemed to be diligent and wanting to accomplish things.
Caption at 1:08: Seung Gi’s diligence was commendable.
Q: Why did you go an hour earlier than your appointment?
Woman MC: It was at 12:30pm but why did you go at 11:30am?
Lee Soon Jae: I was the first to arrive here today. (LOL!) When you’re on your way (somewhere), it just ends up that way.
Caption at 1:19: While on the way, always early!

Everything is the same except for the editing out of Question #2 asking Lee Soon Jae why he was early to his appointment. It cuts immediately from the caption that says “Seung Gi’s diligence was commendable” to his message to Lee Soon Jae:
Seung Gi: Always be healthy and I hope to meet you again in a future work/project. Teacher, fighting for today!
Caption at 1:10-: Be healthy for a long time.
Caption at 1:13: I will definitely meet you again.
