[English translation] Section TV Entertainment Report~ Lee Seung Gi

Originally a singer! Stars who made it big as an actor

English translation:

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.

Caption: 2004 debut with “Because You’re My Woman”

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.

[English] Message From Seung Gi

Seung Gi uploaded a message on his official website early this afternoon around 11am KST. His messages are always uplifting and make me forget about the long work week. ^^

Everyone worked hard on the 6th album. Thank you~ ^^

I’m extremely glad to see you Airen^^ ㅋㅋ
A big event called the 6th album has passed in June. Without us knowing, it’s already a more stable July. 

Personally, I’m proud that fans like the 6th album as much as the amount of work put into it. 
Although I’m thankful to you for always cheering me on, this time for some reason, I felt an even deeper sense of gratitude.. 
It’s probably due to it being an album that has been released after a long period of time. 
Although it has always been that way, for this album, not only the fans in Korea, 
Including Airens in China, Japan, as well as so much support from the entire world 
I sincerely thank you^^

I should give out free hugs to relay my thankful heart…there’s no way to do so…gosh…ㅋㅋㅋ

Although you may have suddenly heard through today’s news
Soon I will be returning to variety in a new format.
I always wanted to do variety, with this opportunity 
I feel I have found exciting work to do in a long time after mustering up all my energy.

Well, that won’t be the end of it so always have expectations ~~^^
Since I will look for work that my Airens will enjoy and bring them happinessㅎㅎ

Always be healthy since you will have to cheer me on a lot. For the remaining days in July, rest well and eat healthy food.  
Because I will have you use up all that strength ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Thank you always and I love you. 
Airens are the best! 
I love you (He wrote in Hangul but read out loud it is Chinese ~ Wo Ai Ni Men ~ 我爱你们 ) & Aishiteru (Japanese for I love you ~ 愛してる) (I don’t know the letters on the keyboard so in Korean…Professors, please translate)
Along with the words Let’s meet soon….^^
