[Full English Translation] Lee Seung Gi Sends a Message of Encouragement for Yoon Yeo Jung’s Premiere of ‘Salut d’Amor’

Actress Yoon Yeo Jung of ‘Noonas over Flowers’ is starring in a movie titled ‘Salut d’Amor’ which will premiere on April 9th. Among the actors who sent messages of encouragement and congratulations was Lee Seung Gi.  Actually, all the actors are familiar to us through Na PD and Lee Seo Jin, so I will provide a full translation of the clip.

Choi Ji Woo: Hello, I’m Choi Ji Woo. I’m cheering on Teachers Park Geun Hyung and Yoon Yeo Jung.  I’m really looking forward to their sweet melo acting.

Lee Seung Gi: As a person gets older, their thinking becomes much more mature. It’s true that many things grow and change but I think the pureness of love is similar even if one ages. I didn’t think that there were very many genres like that in South Korea. I would like to see the two Teachers show us what it’s like.

Kim Hee Ae: I think they enjoyed it because I feel that both actors are very charming. I’m very curious about their romance…

Lee Seo Jin: Everyone who watched ‘Grandpas over Flowers’ may know that despite being over 70, I think he has many romantic feelings. As for Teacher Yoon Yeo Jung, I personally meet her often. She still has the feelings and charm of a young girl…

Lee Soon Jae: Needless to say, both are experts at acting. I believe a magnificent harmony will result since they are distinguished actors.

Na Young Seok PD: Probably more than young people, I believe their relationship and story will make hearts flutter even more.  The body may age but honestly, the heart is the same.

Lee Seo Jin: The way a person expresses him/her self and the situations of that generation may change a bit, but love always remains the same.

Kim Hee Ae: If there was no love in this world, how desolate and awful would it be. Love should always lie as a base (foundation); then how happy things will be.

Lee Soon Jae: I’m thinking that Director Kang Je-gyu will have another masterpiece.

Lee Seo Jin: Obviously, the expectations for this movie are very high.

Kim Hee Ae: I really wish for it to be successful.

Na Young Seok PD: I am cheering on Salut d’Amor!

Lee Seo Jin: I’m cheering on your love story!

Kim Hee Ae: Cheering you on!

Choi Ji Woo: If you love, do it for a long time!

Lee Seung Gi: If you love, do it for a long time!

Lee Soon Jae: If you want to live a long time, love.

Male voiceover as Yoon Yeo Jung and Park Geun Hyung are dancing in the movie: What does your final love look like?

Yoon Yeo Jung as she cries and holds Park Geun Hyung’s hands: I’m sorry.

Park Geun Hyung: Promise me. No matter which of us dies first, let’s not cry.

Male voiceover: Director Kang Je-gyu’s first moving drama, Salut d’Amor.

Info About New Marley Coffee CF

According to Hosuk Lee, president of Marley Coffee Korea, the new CF that we’ve all been waiting for will air around April 15th for approximately 45 days. There will be a total of 2 versions. In the beginning of May, 3 different types of cup coffee will also be introduced. This is the first time I’ve heard of the term “cup coffee” although I am of Korean descent and live in South Korea. Just to clarify things, I searched online using the Korean term and found images like this: (These are widely found in convenience stores and supermarkets in the refrigerated dairy aisle)

Selca with Seung Gi During Studio Recording *UPDATED w/ Full English translation*

These selcas with Seung Gi were taken while he was recording at the studio. The weibo account that uploaded these photos was DoubleKick Music.  I’m Korean so I don’t speak Chinese, but the comment in weibo translated to something close to “This time, a large (VIP) customer came, national brother Lee Seung Gi.  The woman appears to be a member of the chorus.

*UPDATED 3/31 11:56PM KST* I was lucky to have 2 Airen friends help me translate the entire comment by this weibo post. Thanks to Yuling Tan and HeodangSeungGi for their help. 🙂 I have combined their translations into one:

[Double Sidekick’s Studio] 150331 Kim Hyuna who always helps out in the harmonization in the work studio posted this on her Facebook page and mentioned this adorably: A big (VIP) client came this time, the nation’s younger brother. P.S. Lee Seung Gi will return as a singer in April ~”

[English] Detailed Info on Marley Coffee’s Bottled Coffee to Hit Convenience Stores in April

aprilmarleycoffeesignCredit: dclsg

Marley Coffee’s RTD (Ready to Drink) line of bottled coffee will only be available at CU convenience stores starting this April. A dclsg member uploaded this photo of promotional signs for its launch. 

Korea likes the 1+1 system (aka buy one get one free) or 2+1 system (buy two get one free) to sell products, especially in convenience stores. Every month, promotions like the one you see above change.

From April 2nd to the 30th, bottled Marley americano is 5,400 Won for 3 bottles (~ $5 US) while my favorite, Jamaica latte, is 2,700 (not on sale) (~$2.25 US). This is very affordable compared to the price you have to pay for a cup of drip coffee at the Gangnam or Itaewon Branch cafes which range from ~ $6.50 to ~$12 US dollars depending on the blend. So, for people who can’t make it to the nearest Marley Coffee branch for their daily brew, this is a great alternative.  I’ll be looking for it at my neighborhood CU convenience store next month!

Here’s the photo of the bottled coffees I posted a few weeks ago for your reference:

Marley RTDCredit: Hosuk Lee

Hosuk Lee is the President of Marley Coffee Korea and this is what he said about the new line:

“Finally, Marley Coffee (RTD) has shipped from the factory.
You can only find it at CU (convenience stores) starting from 4/2.

Sweet Americano and Latte!

We ask for a lot of interest”

Cuckoo CF Catalog Ads

I was going to buy the small silver model in the last ad which cooks rice for 3 since I’m in the middle of spring cleaning. Perhaps, it’s just an excuse to replace my 7 year old plastic rice cooker that I received as a hand me down from my aunt. Aigoo, Seung Gi! It’s hard to resist not purchasing products you endorse. That silver stainless steel model for 3 happens to cost around $400 US dollars. I could buy a frumpy plastic one online for less than $30. Time to save up and wait for a good sale.  🙂  In case you’re wondering, the larger ones that serve 10 people cost between $350 to $500+ US dollars depending on the model.


Premium Eco Mini

(I wish the price was “mini” sized too, LOL)
