Thank you to the fans who have been together with me for 14 years since my debut 2018.06.05
Hello, it’s Seung Gi^^ I’m leaving a letter after a long time. After greeting you once in a while through the company Instagram, I’m a bit late greeting you. For being an entertainer who is not confident about writing posts or taking photos, I’m sorry. haha.
2004, June 5th. I still can’t forget the day when I stood in front of everyone for the first time as a senior in high school singing ‘Because You’re My Woman’ while sweating buckets on a program called Music Core. It’s because it was one of the days when I was the most nervous in my life.
Lyrics and melody that were overflowing with spirit and vigor. Things like humor and talent were so hidden away that they were not visible. I want to sincerely thank the fans who were together with such a lacking entertainer called Lee Seung Gi from his debut in 2004 or perhaps later up until now.
It’s an emotion that I didn’t feel in the past, but out of the numerous charming and cool entertainers in Korea, I am thankful and happy that you chose a person like me. If it weren’t for everyone’s support and love, I might not be where I am.
When I first debuted, I looked up towards my seniors who had been active for at least 10 years. Will I also be able to be an entertainer for that long? It doesn’t seem long when there was a time I looked up to others with yearning while thinking,”If I do this for 10 years, wouldn’t I realize the truth about the entertainment industry?” I’ve been in this occupation for 14 years now. haha. To be honest, if someone were to ask if I were a specialist in my field, I think I would answer “no”.
It’s because I’m still really uncertain, curious, and trying to overcome my limits by facing them.
Also, I thought it was a really thankful event if I was even able to safely make a comeback after being discharged from the military. Including drama, variety, and even the movies, I think I worked with an enormous amount of passion for 6 months without any time for rest. Everyone was a huge source of strength for this successful comeback.^^
Already, we’re halfway into 2018 and June 5th is my 14th anniversary. Compared to the time I want to spend with you, 14 years is absolutely not a long time, but I am blessed considering the fact that I was able to come this far without any huge accidents. I consider myself a happy person.
Along with today’s 14th anniversary congratulatory news, there was also good news in the press, right? Articles about the confirmation of the drama ‘Vagabond’ haha Through acquaintances, I heard that fans were also looking forward to news about this drama. I’m happy that I will be able to show everyone the character and work that you want to see.
Since this work will be broadcasted pre-recorded, I won’t be able to meet you as quickly as pre-existing dramas. However, I’ve put in as much effort. Through a method of work I haven’t tried before, I’ll greet you with a cool production that can become my filmographic masterpiece. Please take it easy while waiting for it ^^
In the meantime, let’s be together while watching Master in the House^^
If I were able to replicate myself, I would be able to do what I wanted all at the same time Seeing that there’s only one of me, there came a time when I had to take care of myself and distribute my output appropriately so that I can continue to be active for a long time. ㅠㅠ Because of that, take your time and wait for me. I will show you things one by one as if you were peeling an onion. keke
To my fans who have always supported and loved me with an unchanging heart, thank you and I love you. It’s something that I always say but personal happiness is the most important.
Please support me with a happy heart and never overexert yourself!!! For the rest of 2018, I will be busy working hard and thinking about what kind of charm to show you. I will prepare^^. Take care of your health and in the future as well, let’s be together!!
To all the fans who congratulated me, I’m really thankful and I love you^^
