Singer/Actor Lee Seung Gi will be doing another good deed.  He will be volunteering as a ‘Star Assistant to Big Issue’ to daily street vendors of Big Issue, a lifestyle magazine which helps the homeless become self reliant. 

On the 18th, according to a Big Issue insider, Lee Seung Gi will be active as a surprise assistant to the magazine following the Lunar New Year holiday this coming 23rd somewhere in the Seoul Gangnam area.  Being a Big Issue assistant includes standing by Big Issue vendors’ side and supporting them in becoming independent. Cheering them on is a given. It also includes PR work as well as helping vendors sell daily issues. Being a star assistant for Big Issue last occurred in 2011 with Lee Ji-ae, a former announcer. In September of the same year, after ‘Infinite Challenge’ Rowing Episode’s coach Kim Ji Ho, it’s been 3 years since such an event has occurred.

Regarding this, a representative from Lee Seung Gi’s agency, Hook Entertainment, told OSEN, “We decided that it would be good to have a systematic approach and goal to help Big Issue which helps the homeless become self reliant. Lee Seung Gi himself indicated his will to be a star assistant to Big Issue.”

Previously, through his talent donation, Lee Seung Gi underwent shooting for the cover and pictorial of the 102nd edition of Big Issue.  During that time at the shooting location, Lee Seung Gi said through an interview,”It’s a magazine with such a good goal.” Through his question of “Why didn’t we know about it?” he relayed his determination to participate by willingly donating his talent.  

Lee Seung Gi is Korea’s representative ‘Good deed star’ who has fulfilled good deeds in various ways. Including a 100,000 Won donation to KBS Kang Tae Won Welfare Foundation, he is a supporter for donations on behalf of low income female students in the USA, sharing of kimchi and coal briquettes program, volunteering at nursing homes, and helping orphanages among others.  Besides Lee Seung Gi, his fans have also followed his lead. In 2014, for his 10th debut anniversary, they donated  29,947,500 Won (approx $29,947.50 US) to the KBS Kang Tae Won Welfare Foundation.

Meanwhile, the 102nd edition of Big Issue that Lee Seung Gi graces  is currently being sold at major Seoul subway stations as well as online at the Big Issue Shop.

Lucky Airen Wins Lee Seung Gi’s Shirt From Love Forecast

A few weeks ago, Love Forecast‘s official facebook page held an event for the top 3 people who watched the movie the most. The event lasted for about a week, starting at the end of January and ending on February 3rd. The winners won clothing worn by Lee Seung Gi, Moon Chae Won, and Jung Joon Young respectively. The first place winner was none other than a Korean Airen who is well known for her HQ photos. She diligently attends Seung Gi’s events and takes professional quality photos that are very popular among Airens. You’ve seen them on my blog frequently. She won Seung Gi’s shirt for watching the movie 88 times! Considering the price of admission is 10,000 Won (approx $10 US), the shirt is worth about $880! She tweeted a photo of it this afternoon. Congratulations!  🙂
