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.

[English] You Are All Surrounded!~ Accidental Love ~ Japan DVD Set Lee Seung Gi Interview

Credit: NBCUniversal Entertainment

English translation:

Seung Gi: To begin with, Eun Dae Gu’s character had different qualities from the previous characters I portrayed so he had a lot of charm. In the past, I was in many dramas based on fantasy. I decided to play this character because I was able to portray a very realistic character without that element.

Seung Gi in Japanese: Yes, hello everyone in Japan. I am Lee Seung Gi.

Seung Gi: In You’re All Surrounded, out of all the roles I’ve played, I think my acting underwent the most change.  Since I put a lot of effort into portraying Detective Eun Dae Gu who is intelligent, smart, and very cold, I hope you will enjoy watching it. Hmm…I think it’s very colorful. In any case, there was a good harmony with many actors with colorful characters. Since we kept up our strength till the end to wrap it up, I also hope that everyone will use that energy and joy to enjoy it as you watch it. Please give lots of love to You Are All Surrounded. Thank you.

[You’re All Surrounded!~ Accidental Love] BTS NG Clip Part 2~ Preview from Japan’s DVD Set #1

Credit: NBCUniversal Entertainment

The first take is an NG because Cha Seung Won messes up his line. Seung Gi asks what his lines are afterwards and keeps cracking up. Cha Seung Won is supposed to say “My kids” meaning the P4 team but the serious atmosphere is hard to keep with Seung Gi cracking up. He asks the director if they can try one more time before this clip fades out.

[You’re All Surrounded ] NG Scenes from Japan DVD Set 1 with Commentary

The 1st DVD Set of You’re All Surrounded will be released on May 2nd in Japan. Here is a short clip of NGs from that set.

Credit: NBC Universal Entertainment

The director calls it an NG because he wants the P4 team to walk together. Go Ara makes sure by asking,”You want us to come together, Director?” The second time, Ara cracks up at the guy holding the reflector and she apologizes to the director. Seung Gi also chimes in and jokingly chides the crew member by asking if the guy can also have someone flutter a reflector for him also. Finally, if you listen closely, you’ll notice that the director calls Ahn Jae Hyeon “Tae Il” instead of by his real name when they’re not filming.  Seung Gi can’t stop being goofy in the background and another cast/crew member asks him what he’s doing. LOL.  🙂
