With Brain study. From basic conversation, vocabulary, and even grammar. At one go. For English, listening carefully. Brain study.

Hwayugi filming clip ~ Lee Seung Gi

This was posted on Instagram yesterday, November 15, 2017 but it got deleted, most probably due to all the frenzy it caused among Airens. Thankfully, many Airens including myself saved it before the footage was gone forever. Seung Gi’s on a wire with a CG background. This should be interesting. 

Seung Gi attended the 2017 Asia Artist Awards on the same day and was not seen for several hours after his red carpet appearance around 4:30pmKST at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium until the acceptance of his award around 9:45pmKST.

I don’t know when Seung Gi actually shot this sequence, as Gwangju is pretty far from Seoul. By car, it takes 3 hours round trip from Seoul. That’s assuming it’s the Gwangju in Gyeonggi province. There’s another one further down south in South Jeolla province which takes 5 hours one way from Seoul. I will post the English translation of the original Korean post and hashtags.

[English translation] Seung Gi’s Acceptance Speech at 2017 AAA

Congratulations Seung Gi on receiving the Best Welcome Award at the 2017 Asia Artist Awards last night! You were so cute being nervous on stage and as always, had witty remarks to amuse the audience.  You’re only 15 days post military discharge and your work ethic is commendable as always. All the best on your upcoming CF and drama, Hwayugi.

Leeteuk:  The next award category is for a special award.  It’s for the star that the most number of people have awaited news from this year. 2017 Asia Artist Awards, Best Welcome Award.

Lee Tae Im:  Let’s meet him through the screen.

Male voiceover: 2017 Asia Artist Awards. Best Welcome Award, Lee Seung Gi.

Lee Tae Im:  Yes, enough to be chosen as the number one star whose military discharge is the most awaited, Lee Seung Gi who is loved by the entire nation, is already flooded with love calls from drama, variety, movies, and all other areas of entertainment.  It seems he will be gathering a lot of interest in his future activities.

Leeteuk: Now, Lee Seung Gi-shi, at a moment that is the most anxiety provoking, including me, many people missed you very much. Please share your thoughts with us.

Seung Gi:  Yes, thank you. After my debut, I’ve received many awards…this Best Welcome Award… just its name alone is enough to make one laugh out loud. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever received one. To start off, I’d like to give my sincere thanks.  Before I express my thoughts about receiving this award, since this is my first time suddenly being in a place befitting celebrities, I ask for your understanding if my thoughts are not expressed coherently. My heart is beating so fast. I’m as nervous as if I had received news to re-enlist in the army. I imagined countless times what I should say about this award. But I couldn’t think of anything to say…because I didn’t do anything. (Audience bursts into amused laughter). All I did was successfully complete military service like every other male in South Korea. (Seung Gi is so humble as always) I thank you from the bottom of my heart for greeting me with this much interest and support. (Applause from the audience) It’s been a long time since I’ve stood in this kind of place. Watching singers’ stages that I used to watch as reruns on TV in the living quarters of the army camp made me realize that my job is an entertainer. I thank you. As for my future plans, I plan on diligently showing more to make up for the long time I spent in the army camp. I will work even harder to meet your expectations with a good project as much as you’ve shown interest and cheered for me. Please watch over me and cheer me on. Thank you. I will work diligently.

Leeteuk: Lee Seung Gi-shi, I am curious about something. Including myself, many people asked why your military service was so long…isn’t that right everyone? So many people said these things. Did you also feel the same way?

Lee Seung Gi: I have to answer the question before I get off the stage, right?

Leeteuk: Yes.

Lee Seung Gi: I’m so nervous right now, I don’t know how to respond.

Leeteuk: Yes, please speak comfortably.

Lee Seung Gi: Well, I’ve heard there were rumors that Lee Seung Gi wasn’t going to be discharged from the army, he was going to be promoted to a higher rank, he was being dispatched..I heard there were various rumors. They’re all not true. I just..like any South Korean male…including yourself and just like everyone here who has completed their military service…I did the same and was discharged.  As for those who felt my military service was particularly long, I thankfully think that people waited that much for me.

Leeteuk: Yes, now we only have time to meet the awesome Lee Seung Gi. Singing, Acting, seriously, the one who is able to carry out diverse fields is you. While you were serving in the military, which did you miss more?  The stage as a singer or the television as an actor? Also, there was variety, right? You also served as an MC as well, right?

Lee Seung Gi: I liked watching others’ stages.  It was really cool.  I used to think a lot about what I should do when I come back. Now, instead of thinking about that, depending on the situation I’m given, I will diligently greet you whenever the opportunity arises through various projects….whether it be through variety or as a singer, as long as my stamina allows.

Leeteuk: Yes, once again Lee Seung Gi-shi, now for the fans who are waiting really diligently….

Lee Seung Gi: Stop asking questions, seriously! (LOL! Seung Gi is so nervous he wants to get off that stage as soon as possible. So cute!)

Leeteuk: We will now wrap things up. Once again, fans who have waited for a long time, please give him a warm round of applause! Now then, Lee Seung Gi-shi, congratulations once again. I also waited for you. I will look forward to your projects.

Lee Tae Im: Yes, I saw press coverage declaring that you would make people sick and tired of seeing you. I hope you keep that promise.
