Dedicated to my absolute favorite Korean singer/actor/MC Lee Seung Gi

All Official Quotes to the Press From Hook Entertainment Regarding Album and Concert From March 9, 2015

1 Comment

In response to Airens’ questions asking about clarification regarding Lee Seung Gi holding a concert or not, there seems to be conflicting answers from Hook Entertainment. The previous article I translated had the official say there were no plans for a concert. I checked dclsg tonight and was ready to pull my hair out after reading an excerpt from an online article stating that plans for a concert and activities related to the (new) album would be decided later.  Just how many Hook representatives did the press speak to?!! Why can’t they stay consistent?!! Aarrggh!!  However, this is a matter that needs to be addressed ASAP. To clear up any confusion, I’ve simply translated Hook’s statements from today’s online articles. Those that aren’t directly quoted and includes some material from the reporter will be marked for your reference.  I have only included quotes from articles that specifically stated that the representative was from Hook Entertainment.
