English translation:

MC: “I think there are many people who have been waiting for this moment. Singing, Acting, Looks, Manners…the Nation’s Younger Brother who has become the Nation’s Oppa. Not long ago, there were results (from a survey) among unmarried women and he was chosen as #1 among men they wanted to marry. Lee Seung Gi will be appearing soon. You may send text messages of encouragement to Lee Seung Gi and (people appearing at KB’s event? ~ couldn’t hear this clearly) now. I now introduce KB Financial Group’s CF Model, Lee Seung Gi.

Seung Gi: Thank you. I’m KB Financial Group’s model Lee Seung Gi. Uh…today…how should I say this? Instead of a corporate..financial event, I’m really, really happy that I’m able to carry out my role and meet you in a concert setting. Personally, out of the several CFs that I’m involved in, the financial group that I’ve accumulated the most trust and attachment to is KB Financial Group. (Audience laughs) Although it’s been a long time since I’ve been a model, there are no words to express the happiness I felt when I first became KB’s model. As far as I know, I was the first (to model) out of popular singers, so I also felt I was the youngest…(More laughter from audience). Once again, I’m really happy to be meeting you here like this. It’s been a while since I’m standing on stage like this. Earlier this year, I finished the drama, ‘You Are All Surrounded’. I’m currently filming a movie. It will be premiering next year and I’m diligently filming it. I hope many of you will come to watch it. I will be singing a second song for you. I agonized a lot over the second song since it’s been a while I stood on stage. I was shy and agonized over it but I felt it was etiquette to sing a hit song for you if you’re going to watch Lee Seung Gi.  I will carefully have the dancers come on stage and sing ‘Will You Marry Me?’ I think my body is continuing to get stiff as time goes on, so don’t focus on the choreography and let’s just enjoy the song. (Applause)

Will You Marry Me?

English translation summary:

In this clip, Seung Gi is choosing 3 lucky winners in a raffle for a prize. The MC asks,”Isn’t he cool?” and jokingly mentions how she feels many jealous glances right now. Then she asks the audience,”Doesn’t he look much more cool/handsome in real life?” The audience shouts “YES!”. Seung Gi bashfully says thank you. The MC announces the start of a raffle and mentions how the audience is hoping to share in his passion and love through this raffle. She points out how many round eyed and expectant looks are in the audience. Seung Gi says how he’d like to share this with everyone but since it’s not possible, he’s seen many disappointed looks on fan’s faces. He jokes and tells the audience not to expect to win because it will lead to greater disappointment. The MC congratulates the 3 winners in advance and relays her experience about going to a company dinner where her manager gave 35 chances to win to the 37 people who attended. However, she ended up not being chosen at all. She concludes by saying people who don’t win, usually don’t win. Seung Gi picks the first winner and they are in section A, seat 15. He congratulates her and the MC jokingly mentions how the person next to her doesn’t seem to want to move.
