Seung Gi: Hello, everyone. I’m Lee Seung Gi. It’s been a long time.  I missed you. I’m greeting you from my new MV set.  As it’s an album that’s being released after 2 1/2 years, expectations are very high.

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!

Love Forecast Premiered Today, May 9th in Japan

So glad to see proof shots from various theaters across Japan. Thanks to Hanrize and the Airen leaders of 3 districts (Roppongi, Nagoya, Kansai)  in Japan for sharing their photos. The response so far has been positive with complete sell outs and plans to add additional screenings. In addition, I saw many tweets today from Japanese Airens saying that they were going to watch it again.
