English translation:

Seung Gi in Japanese: Yes, hello everyone. I’m Lee Seung Gi. It’s been a long time.

Seung Gi in Korean: As it’s the first debut of LF, I heard it will be premiering in Japan on May 9th. It’s truly an honor. Since it is my first movie, I filmed it diligently with excitement and butterflies. I’m very curious about the image I portray to the Japanese audience. I hope there will be good results and news from Japan.  I hope many people will make sure to come and watch it and give it lots of love.

Seung Gi in Japanese: Please watch it.

Japan Love Forecast Autographed Poster Giveaway

Love Forecast will premiere in Japan next Saturday, May 9th, and Cinemart Roppongi in Tokyo is holding a special event for movie goers until May 31st JST.  Seung Gi apparently autographed 18 posters~ 9 each of two versions, A and B.  One needs to submit 3 ticket stubs to enter the drawing. Thanks to Hanrize who received this information from Yochi-san. One comment she made was “Why aren’t the posters in Japanese?” I guess the English version is standard across Asia.
