I had this saved to blog when I had time, and I am glad to be sharing this with you. It is a fan account by a Korean Airen who met Lee Seung Gi in Japan during the 2 day Valentine’s Request Stage weekend. He willingly autographed his Japan debut album ‘Renai Jidai’ aka ‘Love Time’, when she handed her copy to him. Here’s the dialogue between her and Seung Gi.
I was touched by Seung Gi’s actions on his way to work ^^
Even inside the van, he is radiant, just radiantㅋㅋ
Seung Gi: What is your name?
Me: It is 뱃살공주요~ (Variation on Korean for Snow White, 백설공주, but the first 2 characters are replaced by 뱃살, which means belly fat, LOL! 공주 (Gong Joo is Korean for Princess)
Seung Gi: Snow White????@@
Me:No~Belly Fat! Belly Fat Princess!ㅋㅋ
Seung Gi: What?@@@@
He had a confused look as he went into the van with my album as I started to worryㅋ
Seung Gi senseㅋㅋ Belly Fat Princess was accurate~♥♥♥
I didn’t even ask him but he even drew hearts~~hehehehehehe
What I’m more thankful for is ㅠ that he didn’t sign the outside of the CD case ㅠ He took the jacket out of the album to sign it and carefully placed it back inside ㅠ I was so movedㅠㅠ
Because I react this way, how can I not love Seung Giㅠ
I’m proud to be your fan…I.Love.You.Lee.Seung.Gi~~♥♥♥

After the cancellation was announced, Seung Gi was on his way back and saw people who looked like his Airen walking in the heavy snow.
He felt very sad so he decided to return to the venue. He insisted on singing 2 songs for the Airen who were still there in spite of the disagreement from the Japanese co-organizers.
When they(the fans) were back, Hook’s CEO asked those who wore Firstlook jackets,” Are you an Airen?” If the answer was “Yes,”she asked them to get in the car and gave them a ride (to the venue)
This is just heartwarming and it just shows you what a thoughtful and caring singer Seung Gi is. I just had to share this story with my readers.
