It’s that time of the year again. Lee Seung Gi has been nominated for Male Popularity Award for The Gu Family Book. Overseas fans and foreigners residing in Korea can register to vote for him through this site which is in English: https://my.joins.com/register/member_reg_foreigner_eng.asp?regist_location=K0001
You need to send them a copy of your passport or alien registration card (for foreigners living in Korea). Since I’m Korean but a US Citizen living in Korea, I just finished signing up and emailed a scan of my USA Passport. **UPDATE ON 4/30/14** I heard from overseas Airens that they are charging a fee. It costs $1.06 per 5 votes. I am surprised this didn’t pop up on my screen when I registered.

Seung Gi has always been known for his gentlemanly attitude, professionalism, sincerity, and politeness by fans, staff, and fellow actors and actresses. I ran across a post in dclsg that was a testimonial to his consistent charm.
A close hoobae (younger person in the same field) of mine is Lee Seung Gi’s manager…
He’s the manager who has appeared on television a couple of times.
On Noonas over Flowers, he ate with Lee Seung Gi at his house,
In addition, at a certain awards ceremony last year, he was (the manager) that (Lee Seung Gi) “thanked for always cooking duck meat to maintain his diet” That manager is my close hoobae…
(Do we all know his name yet? ㅋㅋㅋ…. Does Hanguk ring a bell? ^^)
Lee Seung Gi isn’t just at a standard where he has nothing to hide; I heard that he truly is perfection itself.
Also, overall…as a human, he is perfect…
He’s not praising him just because he’s his manager; I heard he was a really good person.
Since the majority of people around him are managers for celebrities, on the whole, he is aware of celebrity news.
He stated that Lee Seung Gi is at a level in which other celebrities can’t compare…
