2015.07.14 ~ Sina Exclusive Interview ~ Lee Seung Gi *UPDATED W/Tweet Compilation*

Credit: Sina

This is a long interview. I’ll upload it for now and post my twitter compilation here for now.

Sina interview: SG says he could’ve starved to death if he didn’t become a celebrity. Say his ddukbokki is really delicious & would like a chance to make it for others,really likes Chinese cuisine, just had some last night,but can’t eat it everyday because he will gain weight.

SG thinks Chinese Running Man seems fun. Unexpectedly found many ballad songs in Chinese music. Would like to work with Fan BingBing. There are many distinguished Chinese directors. Would like to work with them. I think that I made an album worth keeping in one’s collection. I couldn’t show you my singer side due to acting throughout the year. (YAAS & Love Forecast)

There are many songs of my personal taste in the album but “And Goodbye” is a song that gives off the feel of “this is the title song”. SG: It’s the easiest song for the public to listen to. Compared to past ballads, it’s very rhythmical & inside the lyrics, it is emotional. Please look forward to an upgraded work from me. I’m getting many drama offers. I’m looking for a different image. In my future work,I would like to play a character that shows a different side from me. Like a villain. Many people say that people w/upright image who plays a villain is scary. If that opportunity arises, I would like to take it up.

SG: I exercise daily because my body is the type that gains weight easily. I go to the dermatologist to take care of my looks, watch movies. When I work on a project, I meet many composers, play many instruments, I think I do a lot of learning. Other than that, I dine out, drink..I really like Chinese food but if I ate it everyday, I’d gain weight. I regularly eat it on special days.

I would like to open a weibo account. I am inexperienced at managing SNS so I hope my agency can take care of it. I think I will open one when I am active in China. I would like a chance to have a live fan meeting or concert. Also hope to see many contents in China. Think Running Man is very entertaining. Unexpectedly, China has many songs that have similar emotions like my songs. I thought only dance songs were popular.

Even though there is a large age gap, there are many actresses I like ~ Zhao Wei, Gong Li, & Zhang ZiYi. Learning basic Chinese~ Chinese nicknames for him lost in translation ~ why am I called a steam bun? I’m curious. Sounds friendly. Nothing is set in stone but can promise you that I will meet you with new contents. Thanks. Good bye!

July, 2015 Issue ~ Asiana Entertainment Magazine HQ Scans

I posted a translation of Seung Gi’s message from prior photos uploaded by Airens on dclsg. Glad to see nice HQ scans from the official blog for Asiana Entertainment magazine.  For now, I’m posting the scans. As I mentioned in my 2015 letter to my readers, my work schedule has gotten very hectic so I upload my posts when I get home late at night KST.  I’ll read the article and see if I can post a summary or translation when I have time. Please enjoy the photos for now. 🙂

[English] HD Video~ KWAVE June Issue : Lee Seung Gi Pictorial Photoshoot Sketch & Interview

Credit: k wave

Seung Gi: Hello readers who love Kwave, I’m Lee Seung Gi.

Q: How have you been?

Seung Gi: Lately, I’ve diligently been preparing a new project. In my free time, I’ve been watching many movies, attending school, and when I’m at home, cooking! Since there are so many cooking shows lately, I think I cook at home whenever there is something I want to try making at least once.

Q: Now that summer has arrived, what would you recommend as a tourist destination within Korea?

Seung Gi: It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a vacation so I don’t know of an exact place I should recommend. I think there are so many nice tourist spots in Korea. Personally, I would like to visit Seoraksan (mountain) now that the weather is really nice and a very refreshing season has arrived. It would be nice if many people visited the mountains and the sea.

Q: Your feelings about today’s pictorial photoshoot?

Seung Gi: Chief photographer Kim Young Joon took such good photographs so I believe they will come out magnificently. Since it’s been a while, it will be compared with last year’s (Kwave photoshoot). I also worry that it has to turn out a bit cooler as people watch last year’s photoshoot.

Closing remarks by Seung Gi: Up until now, it’s been Lee Seung Gi. You’ll be able to see me in the June issue of KWAVE. Please continue to give lots of love to KWAVE. I hope you have a happy, exciting, and refreshing summer.  Be happy~~

KWAVE SNS Releases BTS Photo of Lee Seung Gi

Among the 4 photos tweeted by KWAVE’s official SNS account today was one of Lee Seung Gi. The caption that went along with their tweet said they were releasing photos of “memorable” events in the making of the June issue. I’m not sure if this photo is a B cut, but one of the hashtags said “KWAVE editorial department”.
