[English] and [Japanese] translations of Seung Gi’s interview with tvN for The Gu Family Book

Here’s another translation that I did for my facebook group back in September. It is already subbed in Japanese.

Japan’s Channel KNTV interviews Seung Gi about his role as Choi Kang Chi in The Gu Family Book.

Seung Gi: Choi Kang Chi in one word is really a half human-half beast. Just as the word says, he’s a unique character who is half human and possesses half the blood of a mythical creature. Kangchi is very manly to begin with. He’s sincere and has loyalty. Despite this, he isn’t stale or boring and is humorous and full of energy and life. Because of his wide spectrum, I think this is his charm. The Gu Family Book is a drama that revolves around Choi Kang Chi…that’s where the story begins and where the story ends. Through the Gu Family Book, I got to realize again how lucky I was to be working with so many great staff and actors. To me, it is a very grateful project.
