[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^^

[English Translation] From Seung Gi ~ Christmas Eve Message

To ALL Airens~~Merry Christmas~~

Airens, it’s good to see you again~~^^ It’s really been a long time since I’ve greeted you.
I’m resting after yesterday’s crank up for the movie “Marital Harmony” and the wrap up party held simultaneously. ^^

Because it’s Christmas, usually I get elated. However, until yesterday, maybe it’s due to me filming as Seo Do Yoon, it seems like a serene, ordinary day, let alone the fact that it doesn’t feel like Christmas.

While filming “Marital Harmony”, I’m sending my sincere….really heartfelt thanks to all my fans who gave support materially and emotionally, filled with their whole heart and love.
I heard that rumor has spread all over about the staff saying they would go all the way to Chungmuro (Refers to Korea’s Film Capital/Movie Industry) with Lee Seung Gi no matter what.
Already, many staff members are saying they will do Lee Seung Gi’s next movie together…ㅋㅋㅋ

It’s all thanks to my fans!!
Everyone..
“When -yul” (meaning, “What’s this out of the blue?”, currently a phrase trending in Korea due to the drama Reply 1988)~ you’re the best! (Seems like Seung Gi is also watching Reply 1988 these days. What he’s trying to say is that he’s feeling very good thanks to the high praise and support he’s received from Airens. In addition, that’s all due to Airens so they’re “the best!”  Special thanks goes to ladysukheekwon who is an active fan and member of the Airen support team.

To the point where I’m not surprised by each and every single thing you do
I send my respect and thanks to every Airen who showed me a new world of support once again,,,,,

Now to wrapping up the end of the year and creating an opportunity to see each other again!!
Although it’s unfortunate that there’ll be a lot of waiting for the movie, the results will be that much cooler so
please look forward to it~~^^

I’m really thankful and I love you!

Everyone, please spend a warm Christmas as well~~~
Let’s diligently prepare ourselves to become a year older (Korean tradition~ one becomes a year older in the New Year)^^
I love you~~^^

Merry Christmas~~~~~

[English] Message From Seung Gi

Seung Gi uploaded a message on his official website early this afternoon around 11am KST. His messages are always uplifting and make me forget about the long work week. ^^

Everyone worked hard on the 6th album. Thank you~ ^^

I’m extremely glad to see you Airen^^ ㅋㅋ
A big event called the 6th album has passed in June. Without us knowing, it’s already a more stable July. 

Personally, I’m proud that fans like the 6th album as much as the amount of work put into it. 
Although I’m thankful to you for always cheering me on, this time for some reason, I felt an even deeper sense of gratitude.. 
It’s probably due to it being an album that has been released after a long period of time. 
Although it has always been that way, for this album, not only the fans in Korea, 
Including Airens in China, Japan, as well as so much support from the entire world 
I sincerely thank you^^

I should give out free hugs to relay my thankful heart…there’s no way to do so…gosh…ㅋㅋㅋ

Although you may have suddenly heard through today’s news
Soon I will be returning to variety in a new format.
I always wanted to do variety, with this opportunity 
I feel I have found exciting work to do in a long time after mustering up all my energy.

Well, that won’t be the end of it so always have expectations ~~^^
Since I will look for work that my Airens will enjoy and bring them happinessㅎㅎ

Always be healthy since you will have to cheer me on a lot. For the remaining days in July, rest well and eat healthy food.  
Because I will have you use up all that strength ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Thank you always and I love you. 
Airens are the best! 
I love you (He wrote in Hangul but read out loud it is Chinese ~ Wo Ai Ni Men ~ 我爱你们 ) & Aishiteru (Japanese for I love you ~ 愛してる) (I don’t know the letters on the keyboard so in Korean…Professors, please translate)
Along with the words Let’s meet soon….^^

[2015.7.10] (English BTS Story) Airen Support for Seung Gi’s Appearance on Kim Young Chul’s Fun Fun Today

The United Fan Airen support team received notice of the pre-recording a day before so they didn’t have a lot of time to prepare. So they asked caterer ‘Maria Jung Recipe’, who had helped with the 6th album comeback support events.

The fanclub prepared Seung Gi’s 6th albums along with Marley Coffee, other beverages such as grapefruit ade, Perrier carbonated mineral water, and a support (message) board among others.

They prepared a brunch basket because the recording occurred after 10am.  All the food was delivered in a fresh state.

Writers were happy at the news that they would be receiving Lee Seung Gi’s autograph on their album. 

Seeing the proof shot, don’t you think they succeeded in receiving his autograph^^?!

They said this was the first time they had ever seen a hearty brunch basket prepared with so much care. They were moved.  They left a thank you greeting to the fans. 

Lee Seung Gi was also surprised that a support event was arranged at this hour when it must have been difficult to prepare. 

He said he was really thankful towards his fans and that he would eat it deliciously before going on the broadcast.

We Airens are full just with the fact that he ate it deliciously, gained his strength, and appeared on the broadcast. 

He also shot us his heart racing and heart stopping good looks which gets increasingly younger…Moved♥Moved♥ ^^
