English translation:

Female voiceover: A particular hospital in Sinchon (Severance Hospital) has turned into a performance hall.  A special meeting prepared by Lee Seung Gi and Lee Sun Hee in the form of a Family Concert for the patients. Entertainment Relay also joined them. Lee Seung Gi opened up the performance.  It was a moving stage particular to Lee Seung Gi. However, there was a special reason for today’s performance.

Lee Seung Gi:  Our agency’s CEO’s health worsened and was hospitalized. We met many patients who were facing difficult situations that many of us couldn’t imagine. So teacher and I came here to give them some strength.

Lee Sun Hee: This time, I will follow (agree) with Seung Gi’s words.  Yes, with that kind of heart (we came).

Female voiceover: Lee Sun Hee’s voice rang out loud and full of energy more than at any other time. Lee Sun Hee’s powerful and naturally healing voice completely filled the corridors.  Isn’t she really amazing?

Interviewer: Since both of you have been on big stages, I’m wondering if you were nervous?

Lee Sun Hee: Seung Gi said to me,”Why am I nervous, teacher?”

Lee Seung Gi: I usually don’t sing on an empty stomach. (Meaning I usually don’t do something) But almost since my first debut song, (Lee Sun Hee interjects ~ He was nervous) I was nervous and wanted to do better (than prior performances).

Interviewer: So that’s why you danced? (Seung Gi says “Pardon?” LOL) You seemed to be dancing.

Lee Seung Gi: Just for the sake of dancing. Dung-shil, Dung-shil (Koreans use this onomatapoeia to describe someone shaking their rear end)

Interviewer: Lee Seung Gi’s Dung-shil, Dung-shil dance. It seemed more X (can’t hear this word) than other days.

Lee Seung Gi: In any case, because I know the audience doesn’t have expectations for me to dance..

Interviewer: So you’ve been aware of this….(Seung Gi says yes)..(As red flashing lights surround Seung Gi’s face, the female voiceover says~ Come on, you need to have at least one weakness to be charming…)

Interviewer: Whose performance do you think had a better reaction?

Lee Seung Gi: Wherever I go, I usually don’t have instances where my popularity is swayed among middle-aged women. Today, I totally felt it.

Lee Sun Hee: As expected, I have kept a good pupil. For many reasons, Seung Gi is a good friend.

Interviewer:  After a long time, we heard some good news. (Seung Gi says yes) (Caption says: Question: Preparing for a 10th year Anniversary album?)

Lee Seung Gi: I was going to release one or two songs as a single but as I became greedier and the project grew, it became a regular album. Also, every time we recorded, Teacher Lee Sun Hee looked over all the plans.  Although sometimes songwriters were uncomfortable…an album has been produced which I think will be a good gift for everyone.

Lee Sun Hee: You said there were people who were uncomfortable? Who are they?

Lee Seung Gi: Ah yes….uhm…

Lee Sun Hee: Write down a list of their names.

Lee Seung Gi: I was seriously about to reveal their names. (Heodang laughter~ so adorable!)

Interviewer: From your point of view, Lee Sun Hee, what do you think is the biggest difference between this album and previous ones?

Lee Sun Hee: That’s why there’s a song that was created..of course it’s a dance song…

Lee Seung Gi: Oh Teacher, I told you it wasn’t a dance song. I have the burdensome feeling of having to dance..it’s not a dance song but an exciting song was produced.

Interviewer: Does that have the possibility of being the title song?

Lee Seung Gi: No. Absolutely not.

Lee Sun Hee: The song is really perfect. There are no problems with the song…Seung Gi’s dance that will go along with that song..(Caption says with festive lettering: Launching of Seung Gi’s dance)…I feel it will make people really happy.

Interviewer: When do you think you can show us?

Lee Seung Gi: Although I can’t promise an exact date, I think it will be difficult within 5 years. (laughs)

Interviewer: You came to share. Lee Seung Gi’s sharing and Lee Sun Hee’s sharing is?

Lee Sun Hee: I have this satisfaction about being able to do something through my singing.  Because of that satisfaction, it comes back to me as strength to get up on stage again.

Lee Seung Gi: Doing it without end gives me happiness and it makes them happy also. Seeing them gain strength gives me energy. I think that’s what it is.

Interviewer: We will continue to cheer you on in your warm sharing activities!
