Reminder to Watch Seung Gi on Episode 6 of ‘The Producers’ w/Link

Seung Gi will be starring in a cameo role as himself on Episode 6 of the K-drama ‘The Producers’. Here’s a brief synopsis and a streaming link for you to tune in tomorrow night at 9:15pm KST.  I watched Episode 5 tonight and I’ll just tell you that there’s a lot of tension between IU and Gong Hyo Jin’s characters if you aren’t following this drama.

This capture is from the end of Episode 5, tonight. A dclsg member was kind enough to post this.

Info about The Producers: Synopsis


[English] Transcript of Seung Gi’s Video Message Regarding His New Album

After seeing a prominent blogger share the transcript of Seung Gi’s video message in Japanese and after much thought and hesitation, I decided it was only fair that English speaking Airens also deserve to know what he said. Although I’m an official Airen 6, I don’t believe that one has to be a fanclub member to be an Airen. I’m following the official fanclub’s request not to upload the video, so I haven’t broken their rule or committed a sin. I will just share what was said using the official fanclub’s screencap as I believe Seung Gi’s message is more important.

Airens, but you know…(smiles) Nice to meet you, I’m Lee Seung Gi. (laughs) Because I feel that I’m greeting you after a long time, I feel very sorry yet happy.  I’m currently in the recording studio and the various wavelengths in the back are songs that will be in my next, coming soon album. (Presses a button and a chord plays) I’ll only let you hear up to this point. Uhmm….for starters, I’m in the middle of working hard and more than any other album, I’m really working on it diligently. Personally, I think a highly satisfying album will be produced. So, really, more than any other time, because I think it’ll become an album that fans will want to have, please wait a little bit. Being greedy about this and that has postponed time…If you wait a little bit, I will come back with a new album in May or early June. Thank you for waiting during all this time. In this album, truly, starting from the music, lyrics, atmosphere, even the concept, there isn’t an area that my sweat hasn’t gone into. I trust that everyone will like it. I will gather up all my strength until the end and repay you with an awesome album. Airens, thank you and let’s meet soon! (Waves goodbye)

Hope Concert 2015? Supposedly Scheduled For First Half of 2015, Canceled? Unconfirmed?

There was news on SNS and a naver blog of a Kpop boy band fan titled “News about XX’s Concert!”.  In the list, 4th from the top is “2015 Lee Seung Gi Hope Concert”. She unfortunately covered some information about Seung Gi’s concert with an emoticon to point out her boy band’s concert.  She also mentioned that their concert was unconfirmed. The chart said Seung Gi’s concert was scheduled for the first half of this year, but it’s already March and there is no news or confirmation about it from Hook Entertainment or Interpark tickets. I also checked dclsg and although a post about it had over 1,700 hits today, the most out of any post from today, no one except for the poster commented.  She stated that “everyone was being careful with comments”, ” canceled concerts appear to be included” and “who would attend it if it were held now?”

In any case, we know that Seung Gi is busy working on his new album for its release this spring~ can’t wait! Not to mention the fact that he is also attending classes at Dongguk University. Because it is already so late and the first half of the year ends in a little over 3 months, most likely, this concert isn’t happening. I am just sharing the news with you because it is Seung Gi related.  Perhaps he had planned on a concert earlier, but his packed schedule didn’t allow enough time for it to happen.  Only time will tell for sure.

Like Star, Like Cafe~ Marley Coffee Itaewon Featured on SBS News

Last night, at 8pmKST, SBS news featured the Marley Coffee Itaewon Branch showing the power of courtesy towards others. On its program titled “Courtesy Korea 2015 (Courtesy starts with a ‘warm word’) “, Marley Coffee employees were filmed on hidden camera. ‘Thank you’, ‘I’m sorry’, ‘You’ve worked hard’. These simple words are the start of consideration towards others.

I’m so proud of the employees at Marley Coffee and the fact that they take after Seung Gi’s warm heart and consideration for others.  I have always had a good experience at both branches and the manager at the Itaewon branch took the time to sit and talk to me about the CF shooting for Marley Coffee after finding out I was an Airen. (I made it a bit too obvious I guess. I was staring at Seung Gi’s autograph on the wall for a while instead of eating my dessert. ^^) He delighted me with a preview of the shoot on his cell phone a few days before it was officially released on their facebook page. Thank you Marley Coffee for being a good role model for everyone. Thank you Seung Gi for making Airens proud!
