[Starcast] “And, CPR”…Lee Seung Gi, Bringing a Dead M/V Back to Life”

There is an English translation of an exclusive Dispatch article that covers the story of Seung Gi’s MV filming for “And Goodbye”. Although it’s a bit awkwardly translated, with some parts either being completely omitted or mistranslated, it will help you to get the big picture of what the official MV would’ve looked like if the film hadn’t been damaged. The original Korean article was published around 1pmKST today and I tweeted translations highlighting the main points. I am a bit disappointed to see that the English version of the article misses some of these points. I will post the link to the English article here along with a compilation of my tweets from this afternoon.

STARCAST ARTICLE IN ENGLISH

My tweets:

It wasn’t possible to restore special effect filming not seen in other MVs. We think it’ll be difficult with what is left.” (Hook Ent.)

MV’s highlight scene was the car explosion. Including LSG, this scene was the most anticipated. “It’s the first of various scenes in my MV.”

SG on explosion scene: please look forward to it. Also CG scenes. Heart-wrenching breakup scene w/ model in front of blue screen.

LSG had stoic expression portraying the heart of a man who has to leave his love. With slight tears in his eyes, looks seriously at model.

Female model: “Why did you do that?!” LSG: “Sorry.”

That day, Seung Gi was filming greetings for his fans. He even took a selca.

smileMV filmed 5/25 in a wasteland in Youngjongdo, Incheon. “But for LSG, this day’s filming will have to be left only as a memory. So many memorable scenes that could be watched over and over again.”

My final tweet:

Thank you Dispatch for giving us an inside look at what we could’ve seen and the hard work Seung Gi & staff put into the MV. My heart aches.

Lee Seung Gi’s 6th Album MV “And Goodbye” by Dispatch

Credit: Dispatch

English lyrics:

Words that your small lips first said to me
Hello, those words were so nice to hear
I think that’s when we started
I think that’s when we became a we

When I walked you home
And was going to go back
Words that made my heart flutter
Now goodbye goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, the words goodbye
It doesn’t mean the end
Because we’re under the same sky
Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But in my heart, only you live

It was a short time but there were so many memories
Love that never changes is always touching
Today isn’t the end
Got it? So don’t cry

Where you are in the world
I can find you
So don’t worry
Just for a moment, goodbye goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, the words goodbye
It doesn’t mean the end
Because we’re under the same sky
Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But in my heart, only you live

Don’t forget me, don’t forget me, don’t forget me
Don’t forget me, don’t forget me
Even after spring days without me pass

Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But my heart will always blossom a flower that resembles you
I love you, I love you, the words I love you
Only you and no one else will hear them

[Dispatch] Lee Soon Jae Watches Love Forecast with Lee Seung Gi and Lee Seo Jin

According to an article by Dispatch, veteran actor Lee Soon Jae met up with the dimple brothers for dinner and watched ‘Love Forecast’ on January 18th in Gangnam. Afterwards, they drew quite a bit of attention at a cafe near the theatre even though they caught a late show. From the photos, I see that it’s at CGV, and the coffee cups seem to have the logo for ‘Tous Les Jours’ on it.

As you already know, Lee Soon Jae mentored Lee Seung Gi during his filming of ‘The Gu Family Book’. Lee Seo Jin played the role of his porter in the hit variety show, ‘Grandpas over Flowers’. Here’s a few photos followed by the original article in English. It may be a bit awkwardly translated, but I think you will understand the gist of the story. 

“Heartwarming Bromance”

In the purple box:

“There has never been a change in the thought that I have to do my very best in the work that I have been given. Even at the time when I was cast in ‘Brilliant Legacy’, I never thought that I would become immensely popular like this.”

The Importance of Respecting a Star’s Privacy~ RE: Dispatch News

Dispatch dropped the bomb about Seung Gi’s private life on January 1st this year. Although some of their articles about him are entertaining, as a blogger, I don’t condone their intrusion into his private life. An article with many photos of Seung Gi and actress Yoon Yeo Jung from Noonas over Flowers was released this afternoon KST. They apparently had lunch and watched a movie in Chungdahm-dong on September 6th, which is the beginning of this year’s 5 day Chuseok Holiday season.

As an Airen and blogger, I respect his privacy and will not blog or translate any of Dispatch’s photos or their accompanying comments.  It is too intrusive and I am very disappointed in how low they had to stoop to get a sensational story.  Out of respect for Lee Seung Gi and Yoon Yeo Jung, I am deeply disappointed in them and hope other Airens will respect the intimate time the two spent together. I blog to share Seung Gi news with International Airens. I do not blog to increase traffic on my site. This is one article that should never have been published.

 

Sincerely,

Elise Min
