[English translation] Another Interview with Lee Seung Gi in Beijing

Credit: AirenNews01

English translation:

Chinese: Korea’s younger brother,Lee Seung Gi, recently came to Beijing for a concert (they said concert instead of fanmeet). The happiest people were his fans. From our reporters, the number of his fans shocked them too. Our reporters have seen many artists before, but they haven’t seen a Korean artist who has so many fans. We have received the exclusive interview with Lee Seung Gi, let’s take a look at it. Fan: I am from QingDao (a part of china). Yeah, I came here specifically for the concert. Another fan: she is my roommate. She loves Lee Seung Gi. She keeps “harassing” us with her spazzing in the room and she sings his songs every night. Another fan: I didnt! Another fan: I really like him. The reporter asked why. “He has a good character; everything about him is good”

Narrator: all of you are so high! But I believe you can understand why they are so crazy over him after watching the concert. Handsome Lee Seung Gi with an attractive voice, how can the fans not love him?  After seeing many Korean artists coming to China for a concert, this has been the closest interaction between fans and idols in history. Always watching male leads hugging and kissing female leads in dramas, but now you are the female lead. This certainly isn’t a dream! Ladies, at this moment, does your heart feel like it’s going to jump out? [Countdown starts] Let me help your voice out. I wish time would stop at this instant.

Seung Gi: Hello everyone. I am Lee Seung Gi.

Korean: I’m very, very happy to meet you in Beijing. I used to think that my chubby cheeks were a complex…even now. I wish it would appear well onscreen, well that’s my trademark so now I don’t worry about it too much.

Chinese: I am really happy to meet all of you in Beijing. I don’t think I am perfect. When I first debuted, I found that I have baby fat on my face. During filming, whenever the filming angle isn’t right, I am scared that it will leave a bad image. But now, I think my baby fat is my biggest characteristic.

Korean: Seung Gi: It’s really been a long time since I did this.

Chinese: Translator: He says it has been long since he did Gwiyomi.

MC: Would you like to see it (to the fans)? *fans screaming yes* Let’s move to the front.

Korean: Seung Gi: Because I’m a year older now, I might not be cute anymore.

Korean: Seung Gi: Can you hold this for me?

Chinese: MC: He is shy already.

Doing gwiyomi~~~~

MC: Wow! *claps*

Korean: Seung Gi: After becoming a year older, my reaction time has slowed down.

Chinese: Translator: He said that his reaction is slower as he grows one year older.

MC:let me teach you one word. This word is used in China after they have finished a performance. It is called “meng”, which means cute.

Seung Gi: Meng? Me? (in Chinese)

MC: Yes. Okay, this is our 3rd question. Let us continue. Next question. What is your habit when you sleep?

Korean: Seung Gi: Ah, my sleeping habit? I sleep with my mouth slightly open.

MC: That doesn’t look good (if he sleeps with his mouth open)

Korean: Seung Gi: Ah, but for my audience who will watch my variety shows, I am telling you in advance so you won’t be disappointed.

Chinese: Translator: He said he’s telling everyone about this, hope they won’t be disappointed in him.

Korean: Seung Gi: Coffee? Cappuccino.

Chinese: Translator: Okay, cappuccino?

MC: Cappuccino? Alright, let’s ask the reason later. Next question, What kind of character would you like to play the most?

Korean: Seung Gi: Ah..these days, my back muscles are well developed so I like my back.

Chinese: Translator: His back muscles are in good condition, so his best body part is his back.

MC: Wow. Hey, don’t go too overboard. There are 2 questions. Don’t be anxious, it’s still not over yet (to the fans). One day, if you are not an artist, what would you want to do?

Korean: Seung Gi: A tour guide.

Korean: Ah yes, these days, because of the drama, I’ve been exercising.

Chinese: Translator: He is currently exercising to prepare for his upcoming drama.

MC: Oh, so in the new show, we will be able to see your figure?

Korean: Seung Gi: Before I came here, I had a meeting with the writer and director. Yes, and because it is a detective drama with many male characters, there was a proposal for a shower scene.

Chinese: Translator: He said he had a meeting with the director before, and he asked the director if he needs to act in a bathing scene in the show.

Korean: Seung Gi: So, I gave my reply, yes, yes, but I will let everyone be the judge of how it appears on TV. I didn’t reply whether or not I would do it.

Chinese: And the director said, he will let the viewers and fans to decide by watching the show. Right now, he can’t answer the fans regarding this question.

MC: Do you want to see the bathing scene?

Korean: (I can’t hear clearly due to the screaming fans, but he said something close to this) All of you want to see it? It’s only because it’s a drama, right?

Chinese: MC: Regarding this new drama, we will be finding more hints through the next few sections that we have. So don’t be anxious. Right now, let us invite our staff to prepare for the next section. We will invite Lee Seung Gi to make use of food to interact with all of you. Wow, I haven’t finished and you are already so high. Later on, we will ask Lee Seung Gi to make a lunchbox and give it to you, how is that? Right now, we have prepared lots of Beijing’s delicacies. Let me ask Lee Seung Gi first, did you eat any delicacies from Beijing?

Korean: Seung Gi: Ah..I haven’t yet.

MC: Hasn’t had it yet. Let me introduce you to the dishes. *Holds one up and asks Seung Gi* “What do you think this is?”

Korean: Seung Gi: Dduk (Korean for rice cake)

Chinese: Translator: Rice cake.

MC: It is similar to rice cake. There is a Chinese name for it, known as ____.

Seung Gi tries to pronounce it.

In the close up photo, it says “Korean language studies are done at Sejong* Institute!”

*King Sejong is revered by Koreans for being directly involved in developing the Korean writing system known as Hangul.

[English translation] Message from Seung Gi to his Airens post Beijing FM

message to China Airens
From Seung Gi to his Airens after the end of the Beijing FM.

To Airen,

Time passes so fast! It is already March 2014. I am really very happy to be with all of you at this Beijing fanmeet. I wish I could’ve met all of you earlier. However, as the wait gets longer (for me to return), all of you will get more excited and happy if we meet right? I’m not the only one who feels this way, correct? ^^

When I return to Seoul after this fanmeet,  I will be filming ” You are All Surrounded” as Eun Dae Gu who is a police officer. It’s been a year since I’ve been on a filming set! In addition, Eun Dae Gu is a new character that I am taking on. This makes me excited too!

Today, the support from Chinese Airens gave me infinite energy. This energy will not be lost, but will be kept inside me for a long time.

Whenever I feel tired during filming, whether it be mentally or physically, I will use this energy to “recharge” myself. Of course, after this we will be far apart physically, but our hearts will all be connected as one. I believe everyone will continue to support me – Lee Seung Gi!

Just like spending the beginning of 2014 with Chinese Airens, I promise that I will work hard to become everyone’s ideal artist. I am thankful that everyone stayed by my side and supported me. I will go hand in hand with all of you. Chinese Airens,  I love all of you!

2014, March 8, Everyone’s Lee Seung Gi
Yours Sincerely, Lee Seung Gi
