These photos show what a star truly is. Humble, quietly working behind the scenes, putting in every ounce of his care into each gift basket for the patients and their families at the Severance Hospital Family Concert. Seeing the photo of Seung Gi focusing so hard while putting stickers on every single packaged muffin made me so proud to be his fan. How can one NOT love Lee Seung Gi? 🙂

Female voiceover: A particular hospital in Sinchon (Severance Hospital) has turned into a performance hall. A special meeting prepared by Lee Seung Gi and Lee Sun Hee in the form of a Family Concert for the patients. Entertainment Relay also joined them. Lee Seung Gi opened up the performance. It was a moving stage particular to Lee Seung Gi. However, there was a special reason for today’s performance.
Lee Seung Gi: Our agency’s CEO’s health worsened and was hospitalized. We met many patients who were facing difficult situations that many of us couldn’t imagine. So teacher and I came here to give them some strength.
Lee Sun Hee: This time, I will follow (agree) with Seung Gi’s words. Yes, with that kind of heart (we came).
Female voiceover: Lee Sun Hee’s voice rang out loud and full of energy more than at any other time. Lee Sun Hee’s powerful and naturally healing voice completely filled the corridors. Isn’t she really amazing?
Interviewer: Since both of you have been on big stages, I’m wondering if you were nervous?
Lee Sun Hee: Seung Gi said to me,”Why am I nervous, teacher?”
Lee Seung Gi: I usually don’t sing on an empty stomach. (Meaning I usually don’t do something) But almost since my first debut song, (Lee Sun Hee interjects ~ He was nervous) I was nervous and wanted to do better (than prior performances).
Interviewer: So that’s why you danced? (Seung Gi says “Pardon?” LOL) You seemed to be dancing.
Lee Seung Gi: Just for the sake of dancing. Dung-shil, Dung-shil (Koreans use this onomatapoeia to describe someone shaking their rear end)
Interviewer: Lee Seung Gi’s Dung-shil, Dung-shil dance. It seemed more X (can’t hear this word) than other days.
Lee Seung Gi: In any case, because I know the audience doesn’t have expectations for me to dance..
Interviewer: So you’ve been aware of this….(Seung Gi says yes)..(As red flashing lights surround Seung Gi’s face, the female voiceover says~ Come on, you need to have at least one weakness to be charming…)
Interviewer: Whose performance do you think had a better reaction?
Lee Seung Gi: Wherever I go, I usually don’t have instances where my popularity is swayed among middle-aged women. Today, I totally felt it.
Lee Sun Hee: As expected, I have kept a good pupil. For many reasons, Seung Gi is a good friend.
Interviewer: After a long time, we heard some good news. (Seung Gi says yes) (Caption says: Question: Preparing for a 10th year Anniversary album?)
Lee Seung Gi: I was going to release one or two songs as a single but as I became greedier and the project grew, it became a regular album. Also, every time we recorded, Teacher Lee Sun Hee looked over all the plans. Although sometimes songwriters were uncomfortable…an album has been produced which I think will be a good gift for everyone.
Lee Sun Hee: You said there were people who were uncomfortable? Who are they?
Lee Seung Gi: Ah yes….uhm…
Lee Sun Hee: Write down a list of their names.
Lee Seung Gi: I was seriously about to reveal their names. (Heodang laughter~ so adorable!)
Interviewer: From your point of view, Lee Sun Hee, what do you think is the biggest difference between this album and previous ones?
Lee Sun Hee: That’s why there’s a song that was created..of course it’s a dance song…
Lee Seung Gi: Oh Teacher, I told you it wasn’t a dance song. I have the burdensome feeling of having to dance..it’s not a dance song but an exciting song was produced.
Interviewer: Does that have the possibility of being the title song?
Lee Seung Gi: No. Absolutely not.
Lee Sun Hee: The song is really perfect. There are no problems with the song…Seung Gi’s dance that will go along with that song..(Caption says with festive lettering: Launching of Seung Gi’s dance)…I feel it will make people really happy.
Interviewer: When do you think you can show us?
Lee Seung Gi: Although I can’t promise an exact date, I think it will be difficult within 5 years. (laughs)
Interviewer: You came to share. Lee Seung Gi’s sharing and Lee Sun Hee’s sharing is?
Lee Sun Hee: I have this satisfaction about being able to do something through my singing. Because of that satisfaction, it comes back to me as strength to get up on stage again.
Lee Seung Gi: Doing it without end gives me happiness and it makes them happy also. Seeing them gain strength gives me energy. I think that’s what it is.
Interviewer: We will continue to cheer you on in your warm sharing activities!

Seung Gi: It’s nice to meet you. I’m sincerely happy and very excited because many people have gathered here. I’m sincerely happy that we have a special stage, and for me, a special opportunity. Today, on behalf of everyone, I’ve really prepared a lot and I think I’m much more nervous on this stage than during my personal concerts. Everyone, you’ve come with high expectations, right? (Audience shouts: YES!). Can the second and 3rd floor hear me? Wow, thank you so much. In the future, for everyone who has come today and so that you can keep up your spirits towards recovery, I would like to give you a gift of good memories. You’ll do it together with me, right? (Audience: YES!). I’ll greet you with my first song, Return.
I’ll Give You All:
Seung Gi: I think I really sang it nervously but I hope in a small way, it will be a source of strength to you while you are in the hospital. Earlier, I told you that standing on this stage was a special opportunity. To be honest, I thought having a close one or family member who was ill was something that happened to someone else. However, my agency’s CEO, who helped make the name ‘Lee Seung Gi’ since high school, has currently been admitted to this hospital for a long time. Truthfully, I went through a lot of suffering and mental confusion. As I visited this hospital frequently and saw hospital life~ I passed by the pediatrics ward and the rehabilitation medicine ward~ I thought how difficult it must be for the caregivers/families. Because it’s not something that I’ve been through, it’s not something that I dare relate to though I think it will be very difficult for the caregivers and family members. I related to that and that’s how I ended up on this stage. So, I hope everyone can take away some strength from today’s stage. I’ll try to create a cool stage today for the children in front of me and other patients here. Please look forward to it. Today, I’ve been doing volunteer work and talent donation but the best concert staff who have always been with me have come. Really, the nation’s best musicians have joined me. First, by my side is guitarist Hahm Chun Ho. I ask for a big round of applause. You’ve seen him on TV at least once or twice, right? (Audience: YES!) To my right is my piano teacher, our band master and truly the best pianist, Choi Tae Hwan. Also, including my song, those who have created beautiful music, I ask for a big round of applause for our many string instrumentalists. Out of all other times, I had difficulty selecting my signature song. At the end of much deliberation, I chose my remake song, ‘I’ll Give You All’.
Will You Marry Me?:
Seung Gi: Did you enjoy it? (Audience: YES!) For some reason, it’s been a really long time since I’ve sung at such an early time. Perhaps it’s because it’s in front of you that I’m feeling the excitement as if I’m singing at 10pm. Thank you so much for taking interest in this performance. In the future, I hope to take more interest in people around me who are not as healthy as myself. At one time, I said with words that I volunteered a lot and once in a while gave donations. I thought that I was still helping many people but coming to the hospital and seeing things directly were quite different. I thought a hospital had not only patients and caregivers, but also distinguished doctors and nurses. Their sincerity and as the people in this hospital may know, the people who mobilize patients, staff at the information desk, and including the caregivers who do work that is difficult even for family members, I believe their presence is a big source of strength and comfort to everyone. Please continue to keep up your spirits up in the future. Although it’s difficult for me to dare to say “Everything will definitely be okay”, I believe that with the will and good energy, you will definitely get better soon. You’ll do that, right? Fighting everyone! Fighting! Now, I’ll sing the final song before handing the stage over to my teacher, Lee Sun Hee . I was thinking about what song to sing. I heard this song was a direct request from the nurses in the rehabilitation ward. I will ask the dancers to come up on stage and sing ‘Will You Marry Me’. People who know it, please sing along.
Teacher Lee Sun Hee:
I’m Always Missing You
Meet Him Among Them:
