Possibility of Official Membership As Airen 7 This Year Still Unconfirmed

It’s almost the end of March and usually by the end of January, applications for official membership with Seung Gi’s fanclub through Hook Entertainment are processed.

Several Airen 6 members asked what was going on with membership with one saying,“Are we  just continuing as Airen 6??

By any chance, you’re not accepting applications this year because of talk about him going to the military, right??

It just slipped your mind, right??

This was the official fanclub’s reply to all questions related to membership applications for Airen 7:

The results of confirmation through a Hook Entertainment representative state that for now, there are no plans to recruit Airen 7.

In connection with the fanclub’s activities, since an official announcement is planned,  please wait a bit longer although you may be curious about many things. Later on, please check the notice.

I hope this isn’t implying what I think all of us have been dreading… Let’s wait a bit for the official notice to be released. Whatever happens, we will always be with you.

All Official Quotes to the Press From Hook Entertainment Regarding Album and Concert From March 9, 2015

In response to Airens’ questions asking about clarification regarding Lee Seung Gi holding a concert or not, there seems to be conflicting answers from Hook Entertainment. The previous article I translated had the official say there were no plans for a concert. I checked dclsg tonight and was ready to pull my hair out after reading an excerpt from an online article stating that plans for a concert and activities related to the (new) album would be decided later.  Just how many Hook representatives did the press speak to?!! Why can’t they stay consistent?!! Aarrggh!!  However, this is a matter that needs to be addressed ASAP. To clear up any confusion, I’ve simply translated Hook’s statements from today’s online articles. Those that aren’t directly quoted and includes some material from the reporter will be marked for your reference.  I have only included quotes from articles that specifically stated that the representative was from Hook Entertainment.

Message from Seung Gi~ August 21, 2014

Good morning on a rainy day~!                                                      2014.08.21


Today is quite a rainy morning^^
I usually don’t like rainy days but today is a comfortable and
Sentimental morning ㅎㅎ
Just like in Noonas over Flowers, I have a standlight on and am sitting down, leaving you a message^^

Because I’m nervous and looking forward to the fan meeting on Sunday the 24th,I am writing down a few words unexpectedly^^

It’s a fan meeting that I am holding in Korea in a long time. Meanwhile, because I haven’t done much variety, the opportunity to interact with fans also
has decreased. In addition, work in which I have to do in secret has also increasedㅋㅋDrama. Movie, those are it.

Before I was aware of it, when I think about us being together for 10 years, my heart is overwhelmed and  I am reminded of old memories..
Although I’m not a newly debuted hot idol group, I want to say thanks once again to all Airens who have always been with me and cheered me on at the airport or anywhere I go. ^^!!!

Also, to those who express their great affection and on the other hand, I who feel shy about it.
I feel sorry…ㅠㅠㅋㅋI think it is best expressed in writing!ㅋㅋ

I thought a lot about what to do at the upcoming fan meet that contains bits and pieces of my thanks and apologies.
So, on behalf of the fans, I have thoughts of preparing things that we’ve never done beforeㅎㅎ ㅎㅎ ㅎㅎ
Please don’t have huge expectations~~!! Just come with the thought that we are getting together with a joyful heart~!!
I miss you Airen~!

Then, I will take my leave ……to film the movie, go go……ㅋㅋ
I love you~^^ㅎㅎ ㅎㅎ ㅎㅎ

[English] Official Video Message from Seung Gi

Yay! Hook has changed the video greeting overnight. It’s nice to see a new background photo of him in Firstlook but it’s even nicer to watch his new video message today. 

Credit: AirenVideo

“Hello Airen 6th! It’s nice to meet you. I’m Lee Seung Gi. You’ve been doing well, right? It would be nice to greet you more often so I’m sorry for being late. Currently, because of the filming for SBS’ Wed/Thurs drama, ‘You Are All Surrounded’, really, a week flies by as if it were a day so I don’t think I’ve been able to express myself. But still, I’m together with you in spirit. In addition, I have never forgotten the love and support that you’ve been giving me. So, please don’t feel too sad.  These days, while filming the drama, I’ve honestly always been busy and in reality, I’ve been on a tight filming schedule compared to other dramas. Because I think that everyone has been very interested in the drama and has given it lots of love, I’ve been filming with all my strength. Until the very moment that Episode 20 ends, it’d be nice if you could continue cheering me on with all your might. 

Also, since the weather has changed over to the beginning of summer, it has become really nice. I think the temperature change between night and day has been extreme, so please be careful not to catch a cold. Since I’m always together with you, I hope for everything you do this year to be successful and for us to be happy together. Airen 6th, I’m always thankful and I always love you. “
