[English] Lee Seung Gi Gifts the YAAS Staff After Eye Injury

Seung Gi has such a warm and generous heart. As a thank you gift to 130 staff members on the YAAS team, he gifted them with Firstlook Outdoor and shirts made out of Coolmax fabric to beat the heat during filming.  According to a statement made by Hook Entertainment on the 3rd, Lee Seung Gi gifted 130 members on the YAAS production team and staff with Firstlook Outdoor as ‘Staffwear’. This took place on July 1st at the ‘You’re Surrounded’ filming location in Tanhyeon (Ilsan). He was really thankful to the YAAS team for wishing him a speedy recovery following his eye injury and for readily postponing filming because of it.

The production crew who received the gifts were very happy. Lee Seung Gi gave us “Exactly the clothes we need”.  After presenting the gifts on set, Lee Seung Gi said, “I’m thankful to the staff who made it comfortable for me to act. They are always enduring hardships behind the scenes. I just wanted to express my heart in this small way. It would be great if the staff would be able to fight off the heat a bit and film in cooler conditions…since they stand all day underneath the hot sun and work.”

Latest Photo of Lee Seung Gi from Today’s Fan Union Support Event

I am so happy to see that Seung Gi looks well in these photos taken today. The official Airen fanclub just tweeted this photo and a description to go along with it.

Today he ate a small amount for lunch. He had the baked duck, samgyetang (Korean whole chicken stuffed with sticky rice and ginseng root with chicken broth), and even the buffet packaged for take out. He was filming and because he was so moved, he came out holding a sign and moved banners. He also posed for a photo and told us he was very thankfulㅠㅠ Airens will cheer you on with all our might~ Hang in there, our actor~ we’ll meet again soon.

You Are All Surrounded~Filming Fanpics & Commentary After Seung Gi’s Injury

According to the dclsg member who took these photos, Seung Gi did not have make up on his eye but rather his face.

Her comment about these photos:

“…I just wanted to update everyone so I’m writing. I took the photos in such a rush, they didn’t turn out very well. I wonder if it’s okay to upload them here..This is my first time so I’m not sure..His left eye was swollen and he didn’t seem to be in good condition. The wounds on his face are probably makeup…? I also have fancams which probably won’t be helpful but I’ll upload the photos I have first..”

[English] DCLSG Member’s Post About Hook’s Statement

Around 11:30PM KST, a sudden flood of Seung Gi photos after his eye injury circulated on dclsg and Twitter. I was about to sleep until I saw them. They were followed by all sorts of comments ranging from sadness, despair, helplessness, and anger. One of the members was especially vocal and posted the photo of Seung Gi that I just blogged saying,”I’m not sure if it’s okay to post this or not.” A few other posts by the same author popped up, this time with more photos and a red underlined statement made by Seung Gi’s agency, Hook Entertainment, this morning.

Hook statementCredit: ㅇㅇvia dclsg

The title of this article is ‘Eye Injury’ Lee Seung Gi to Resume Filming on the Afternoon of the 13th or on the 14th’

The underlined statement is from Hook which I’ll translate in its entirety starting from the last paragraph “소속사..”

His agency stated, “Although he has not completely recovered, the pain has subsided to the point where it is bearable”. “Following his condition, plans are in the works for him to join filming”.

Below are some representative comments by dclsg members in no particular order. They do not reflect my opinions in any way. All I am sharing are others’ opinions.  This time, I will not hide negative comments about Hook like I did in my previous post. I believe Airens should be informed about the whole truth, not just part of it. 

Is the agency crazy? Protect your actor first, Hook. I’m getting really annoyed. It’s bad enough that people are cursing out the filming environment.

 All I can do is sigh…Gosh, I’m so irritated

It’s such a pity…

If it hurts even now, don’t do it, please

  Bearable pain? He has to bear it? How sad…

 I’m going crazy…irritated…I’m going to have to drink some ice water…What a pity…I’m sighing

ㅜㅜIt’s really unfortunateㅜㅜYou have to really be careful with eyes

 Even if Seung Gi wants to film, they should persuade him not to at all costs….From his agency to the production crewㅜ

Lee Seung Gi After Eye Injury~ Fanpic and Comments from Korean Airens

My heart is breaking after reading all the comments on dclsg, the source where this photo came from. It was taken tonight.  Since Seung Gi returned to filming this afternoon, it may have been a part of the script to incorporate his eye injury into the next episode. All this is just conjecture and I’m trying to keep calm as I type because he doesn’t seem to be ready to return to the set quite yet. ><

Seung Gi~ya, please take care of yourself! Your vision comes first. The drama can wait. We know you’re concerned about delaying the series, but your fans are more worried about your well-being. ♥♥♥

I can’t bear to look ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅠ

Must it be like this? Can’t they film after he recovers a bit more…….ㅠㅠ

Oh my gosh..ㅠㅠㅠㅜㅜㅠㅜㅠㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅠㅠㅜㅜㅡㅜㅠㅜㅜㅜㅜㅡㅜㅜㅜㅠㅜㅜㅠㅜㅠㅠㅠㅡ

 He probably can’t open his eye because it’s so sensitive ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ If he could rest for a few more days …

It’s better not to see thisㅠㅠㅠSeeing it makes me feel crazier ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠHow can they film with him in that state?ㅠㅠ

I really want to show this to those malicious commenters who spread false rumorsㅠㅠㅠㅠ They make me so angry, I’m about to go crazyㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

He can’t even properly open his eye….My heart is tearing into piecesㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

Lee Seung Gi to Resume Filming YAAS?

I spotted an instagram photo that was uploaded an hour ago and one of the hashtags said “Lee Seung Gi is planning to resume filming”

I don’t want to raise any false hopes since an eye injury is serious, so I would rather err on the side of caution until official announcements are made by his doctors and Hook.  Still, seeing this glimmer of hope is encouraging.  🙂

Get Well Wishes from Airens~ Quick Tweet from this AM and Airen Fan Art

This morning, I read a news article featuring a statement by Hook Entertainment, Lee Seung Gi’s agency. I don’t think I need to go into it any further than to copy and paste what I tweeted this morning. It was a brief translation of the main points of the article. 

“Due to quickly taken measures, Lee Seung Gi’s recovery is progressing well.” They also said that “Lee Seung Gi is getting rest and is recovering quickly.” ‪#‎GetwellsoonLeeSeungGi‬ http://durl.me/7zpbda

In addition:

According to his doctor, he should recover by the weekend if he continues receiving treatment. “However, since it’s the eye, which is important, we will have to monitor his progress until he completely recovers.”

Lee Seung Gi is Seriously Injured While Filming YAAS

I’m currently in a state of shock and disbelief right now. After reading the English and Korean news articles, and then a post on dclsg, the pit of my stomach felt like sinking.  Lee Seung Gi was injured in the early morning hours of June 9th when he accidentally poked his left eye with a prop knife. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and was diagnosed with corneal damage, which is super serious, and intraocular hemorrhaging. Bleeding inside the eye can build up the pressure, while corneal damage can affect one’s ability to see. The combination of both injuries is serious so the possible complications scared me even more.

Knowing Seung Gi’s work ethic and reading about his insistence on continuing with the shoot alarmed me. Thank goodness the people around him persuaded him to take it easy and seek medical attention.  Seung Gi, the drama can wait, but your precious eyesight can’t. Please take care of yourself. The following is an excerpt from a post I ran across in dclsg that made my heart stop for a moment in disbelief. Noooooo~~!! Please get well soon, Seung Gi~ya. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

못해도 최소 2주는 절대적으로 쉬어야됩니다.
각막에 시신경 문제면 시력저하는 기본이고 눈 기능에도 문제생길수 있는 치명상입니다. 각막 손상과 안구출혈로 인한 레이저 치료를 받았다고 해도 언제 어떻게 될지 또 몰라서 정밀검사 받고 병원 꼭 다니면서 2주는 무리하면 안됩니다.

At the very least, he absolutely needs to rest for a minimum of 2 weeks.

If it’s a problem with the optic nerve in the cornea, a deterioration of  eyesight is a given. It is also a serious injury which can cause problems in the eye’s function. Even if he were to receive laser treatment for corneal damage and intraocular hemorrhaging, he needs to have a thorough medical check up and make sure to go to the hospital without overexerting himself for 2 weeks.


This is the photo message left on YAAS’ official SBS site regarding the cancellation of tomorrow night’s broadcast:


What kind of nonsense is this!!

cancel2Wednesday is cancelled. They say that episode 10 will air on Thursday,

so please make sure to relay the message to my friend, Ji Yong..!
