Originally a singer! Stars who made it big as an actor
Male MC #1: These days, there is a trend where there isn’t a fixed boundary line between a singer, actor, etc.
Caption: The boundary line which has disappeared in the entertainment industry.
Male MC #1: It’s to the point where viewers who are at least in their 50’s could say,”They (also) sang?”. They are already actors who are much closer to the acting industry.
Male MC #2: They’re stars who’ve already been put to the test and became a huge success.
Female MC: We could call him the original, Lee Seung Gi. You know that Lee Seung Gi first made it big as a singer.

Female MC: At the same time, he had prepared a drama. Simultaneously releasing his first album in 2004, he appeared in Nonstop 5. But I think this was a very smart move. You know how he had a fixed image of a model student, a comfortable image. He even took this directly into the drama.
Male MC #1: To Nonstop 5? I also appeared in Nonstop 5. (Caption says: There isn’t anything he hasn’t done)
Other MCs: Where? I think that was a different person.
Female MC: Called “The Famous Chill Sisters” aka “Famous Princesses”, he did a weekend drama. Back then, he was a friendly character who received so much love from lots of ahjummas.
Female MC: Afterwards, he appeared in another weekend drama called “Brilliant Legacy”. He shared the lead role with Han Hyo Joo. Back then with “Brilliant Legacy”, it received a viewership rating of 47.1%. This really isn’t easy to do.
Male MC #1: It’s really brilliant.
Female MC: Yes. Afterwards, there was “The Gu Family Book” and “The King 2 Hearts”. So he became definitely known as “MBC’s son” and went to the military.
Male MC #1: He’s coming back soon, isn’t he?
Male MC #2: October. He’s coming back in October.
Male MC #1: I see, so he’s coming back this year.
