[English] From Seung Gi ~ June 5, 2018

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^^

Teaser~ Lee Seung Gi Interview

Looking forward to this interview with Seung Gi. Thanks to Chinese speaking Airen friends and what I could gather from tweets in Chinese and Japanese, this is about Lee Seung Gi’s 11 year debut and his 6th album. I dislike using online translators, but Google translate gave me a translation of this video’s Chinese title as “Debut 11 years,”Prince of Ballads” Lee Seung Gi eager to play rock and roll” …I will post a translation of what Seung Gi says in Korean during this trailer.

Seung Gi in Chinese: Hello everyone! I’m Lee Seung Gi.

Seung Gi in Korean: Earlier, if I heard it’s been 10 years (since someone’s debut), I thought of them as a huge sunbaenim (senior). There’s still a lot that I don’t know…

or depending on your country:

English translation:

Jackson: Returning with a full length 6th album is Lee Seung Gi sunbaenim!

MCs: Welcome!

Seung Gi: Nice to meet you, I’m Lee Seung Gi.

Yoojung: I heard your comeback after 3 years is your 11th debut anniversary. Congratulations!

Seung Gi: 11 years really flies by like an arrow. I’ve really aged.  (laughs)

Jackson: Oh no, not all.

Seung Gi: In any case, thanks to my fans who have been waiting for so long. I’d like it to be a good gift.

Jong-hyun: Please introduce your title song, “And Goodbye”.

Seung Gi: It’s a very Lee Seung Gi~ish ballad.  Although summer is the season for dance (music), it’s a song that brings comfort to people who like to feel emotions.

Yoojung: Then, can I ask to hear a little bit of it?

Seung Gi to Yoojung: Since you’re asking, I can’t refuse. ♫ Goodbye, goodbye, the words goodbye. It doesn’t mean the end because we’re under the same sky ♫

Jackson: Wow! Everyone in front of the TV will collapse. Please get up! Get up!

Yoojung:  We will see Lee Seung Gi’s emotional ballad comeback stage in a moment.

Seung Gi: Hello, everyone. I’m Lee Seung Gi. It’s been a long time.  I missed you.

I hope it will be a source of strength to fans in Japan and those far away who have cheered me on. Since I’ve produced an album that will be a good gift equivalent to the time you’ve spent waiting, please give it lots of love and when you have time, please visit Korea.  I always miss you and I want to tell you that I’m always with you in spirit. Fans in Japan, I love you very, very much. Let’s meet soon with a cool album!
