Teaser~ Lee Seung Gi Interview

Looking forward to this interview with Seung Gi. Thanks to Chinese speaking Airen friends and what I could gather from tweets in Chinese and Japanese, this is about Lee Seung Gi’s 11 year debut and his 6th album. I dislike using online translators, but Google translate gave me a translation of this video’s Chinese title as “Debut 11 years,”Prince of Ballads” Lee Seung Gi eager to play rock and roll” …I will post a translation of what Seung Gi says in Korean during this trailer.

Seung Gi in Chinese: Hello everyone! I’m Lee Seung Gi.

Seung Gi in Korean: Earlier, if I heard it’s been 10 years (since someone’s debut), I thought of them as a huge sunbaenim (senior). There’s still a lot that I don’t know…

[English] 2015.06.17 Lee Seung Gi on One Night’s TV Entertainment

This show ended late last night after 1amKST so I’m uploading a detailed summary this morning.
“The Prince of Ballads has returned!” The show begins with Seung Gi getting ready for his comeback stage as he can be heard saying,”I’m getting nervous and excited”. It’s Lee Seung Gi who has returned after 2 years and 7 months as a singer. Seung Gi says,”Despite the fact that it’s an inappropriate season for a ballad, I released one to emphasize it.”  They talk about his comeback song and breaking the mold of dance songs in the summer/ballads in the winter. Seung Gi literally breaks the board representing this preset mold. Asked about his album, he says it’s “really high quality”. About his comeback promotion: “From opening day, all I could see was the ranking.”  They ask about his finger stuck in his sleeve for the poster and Seung Gi says he wasn’t sure what to do and that his hand wanted to go near his face.  They then talk about Seung Gi’s 11th debut anniversary by bringing out this cute chart with all his accomplishments and Seung Gi is impressed and asks for a copy. He comes from the Cheonju clan of the Lee family, which has royal blood. He asks the hostess,”How did you know that and says that many Koreans today come from the Cheonju clan.” He speaks English and Japanese. He says Japanese is useful for dining and shopping.  They talk about his career and his one weakness, dancing. He agrees but jokes that the red line should be extending further to the left beyond the board. He says he gave up on dancing when he was very young. “The lyrics themselves diss my weakness at dancing. Next scene shows Seung Gi lined up dancing onstage with the caption “A bad dancer a beat too late to the groove.” They go on to talk about his song Do You? as the hostess asks him why it was called that. It has no relation to EXID’s Hani. Instead, they were planning to make a 2015 version of Park Jin Young’s “Honey”, but suddenly Hani became very popular. Seung Gi says,”So we put a wavemark before it followed by a question mark at the end. ” When asked what he would say if Hani agreed to dance to it, he said he would immediately agree without any hesitation.  Still, the hostess says, “Now, all of us can look forward to Lee Seung Gi’s dance for ~Do You?, right?

Next question is about what kind of award he’d like to win. He said he’d “like to go big and go for a daesang”. Then he was asked in what?  Acting, Kpop, or variety. He said one should think big so it wouldn’t be bad to win one of each. Poor Seung Gi is then subjected to a popular Korean game called the consonant game where he has to name his own dramas and songs from his career in 1 minute. Seung Gi gets stuck at “Return” at the end.

“Already his 11th anniversary, somewhere along the line, Lee Seung Gi has grown from the Nation’s Younger Brother to a cool man.” Seung Gi, “When people think of and see Lee Seung Gi on television, I hope it gives them strength.  There’s nothing worthier than that.” We continue to look forward to your future image! One Night will cheer you on~
