(Cha) Seung Won is very handsome so to highlight our rivalry, I thought it would be better if we both looked slim. Also, I even went on a diet.


Actors who attract you with their performance.

Seung Gi had to answer the following questions written in Hangul with a Y or a N. If you notice his answer sheet, his replies for the last part of the questionnaire are written in Japanese. Seung Gi is so talented! He is known for speaking Japanese well. If you’ve watched his music videos for his Love Time Japan Debut Album as well as fancams of his concerts in Japan, you’ll be impressed. I’m learning Japanese through self study so I can follow his activities in Japan. It’s not easy. ^^;;

The yellow balloon roughly says “I/We want to know more about Lee Seung Gi!”

Here are the questions Seung Gi answered: Yes/No Questions

I like things to be neat and tidy? Y

I easily feel lonely? N

I don’t like losing? N (He originally wrote Y but erased it LOL.)

I’m meticulous? Y

I tend to laugh easily? Y

I can easily forget about events that cause disappointment and despair? Y

On the questionnaire that Seung Gi completed, he was asked “If you were to compare yourself to an animal, which animal would it be?” but he left that blank

HQ Photos~ Lee Seung Gi for yystudio~ Japanese Magazine, Josei Jishin [女性自身]

I believe these photos were taken for the April issue of the Japanese magazine, Josei Jishin [女性自身]. Josei Jishin means ‘Women themselves/herself”.  According to yystudio’s blog, they are located in Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam and specialize in wedding, profile, and family photos. I noticed that they also had many photos of other celebrities and drama photo shoots as well.   Please refer to my May 2nd post on this magazine. You can also type in the tags “Japan” and “Josei Jishin”.

[English] Japanese Magazine~ Korean Historical Drama Encyclopedia HQ Scans

The Korean word for historical drama is “sageuk”, but I thought it would be better understood if I titled this post with a more universal term. This was released on April 21st.  I’ve provided translations for the main text by Seung Gi’s photos:

korean encyclopediaKorean Sageuk Encyclopedia

韓国時代劇 歴史大全

韓国= Korea/Korean

時代劇=Historical play (in modern times, drama)

歴史大全= roughly means encyclopedia (In Korean, pronounced “Yeok sa Dae jun” )

Korean encyclopedia 2

“In his first historical drama, he showed an excellent performance as a unique guy who wavers between a sacred beast and a human.”

Korean encyclopedia 3

 “Sweating in the summertime made it hard to do the special make up for the transformation scene.”

[English] 11/25 Japanese Croissant Magazine interviews Lee Seung Gi

English translation: Cover – running from right to left, up and down:

Lee Seung Gi-san: I’m always thankful to my fans who understand me.

Final scan: Therefore, what kind of image would Lee Seung Gi san have on Japanese fans? (Lee Seung Gi says) Japanese fans always treat me in a humble and well mannered way.  We always maintain a beautiful relationship.  Because of this, I can always meet them with a happy heart.  Where could something like this be found? Where do they sell it? Whenever I think of these things, Japanese fans get the timing right and give it to me as a present. Whether it’s an eye mask for sleeping on the plane or a small table for eating while I am in the car, they give me practical, everyday items. How could they have known that I needed this? It’s surprising.(laughs)
