Lee Seung Gi will not only make an appearance this day, but he will directly be involved in selling Hanwoo. His responsibilities as Hanwoo Keeper that day will be to reveal the merits of Hanwoo~ the unrivaled taste and quality as well as to represent Korean beef.  Several different cuts of beef will be sold for up to a 50% discount. These include tenderloin, ribeye, soup base beef, and bulgogi among many others. Soup base beef and bulgogi will be sold for 2,300 Won per 100g (approximately $2 US dollars/100g). Ribeye will be sold at 5,600 Won per 100g (approximately $5 US dollars/100g). 

There are various events scheduled throughout the 3 day event with Lee Seung Gi’s appearance being a highlight. Other events include taste testing booths.   It will have a farmer’s market atmosphere and is expected to draw much attention.  Seo Jung Hoon of the Hanwoo marketing team stated that the reason for opening such an event was to “add a deeper meaning to the coming Lunar New Year by having everyone in the nation eat nutritious Hanwoo. Instead of purchasing imported beef, the Hanwoo board wanted people to have the opportunity to purchase Hanwoo, which is unparalleled in taste and nutrition, at an affordable price as they celebrate the Lunar New Year.”

English translation – Lee Seung Gi appointed as Hanwoo Keeper

Around 12pm KST today, Lee Seung Gi was appointed as the “Hanwoo Keeper” by Korea’s Hanwoo Board.  Here’s a translation of the most recent article from nate.com

Lee Seung Gi, who demonstrated the powerful fragrance of masculine beauty in MBC’s Monday/Tuesday drama ‘The Gu Family Book’, took the lead in promoting Hanwoo (Korean beef).  He will be appointed as Hanwoo Keeper on October 30th, 11am KST at the Seoul Seo Gong-dong Plaza Hotel by the Hanwoo Board. Starting with Chairman Kang Sung Gi, an appointment plaque  and a hanwoo gift set is planned to be presented to him.

The Hanwoo Board (Chairman Kang Sung Gi) stated,”Lee Seung Gi was appointed as Hanwoo Keeper because his image as ‘The Nation’s Hoonnam’, (Hoonnam is used to describe a good looking man who is also sincere, considerate, and kind) that is loved by people of all ages, is compatible with hanwoo’s image of trustworthiness.”

Added to his role as Hanwoo Keeper, Lee Seung Gi will be appearing in TV and radio ads in addition to actively participating in various events promoting the consumption of hanwoo.  Plans are in the works for him to actively promote the taste and quality that only hanwoo posesses.

Meanwhile, Lee Seung Gi is working with Na Yeong Seok P.D. from ‘1Night2Days’ again after a long time. He was chosen to be a porter on ‘Actresses Special Backpacking Trip’ which will be broadcasted in mid November on tVN. In this program, Yoon Yeo Jung (age 66), Kim Ja Ok (age 62), Kim Hee Ae (age 46), and Lee Mi Yeon (age 42) were casted to appear on the show and will be leaving for Croatia soon for their backpacking trip.
