Forbes Korea Power Celebrity 40 – Blurb on Seunggi

4. Lee Seung Gi
SBS Entertainment Awards Best Excellence Award
KBS Entertainment Awards Male Best Excellence Award for Show/Variety MC

2010 was Lee Seung Gi’s year. With his image as nation’s younger brother, actor, MC, and singer, he was very active on all fronts. He successfully took on the role of Cha Dae Woong in SBS drama “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.” This drama recorded a 21.3% tv rating. He is involved as an MC on SBS and KBS together with Kang Ho Dong. In the last year alone, Lee Seung Gi filmed 30 CFs, the most in all of Korea.

Why didn’t Forbes include his SBS Drama Awards in the blurb?!  Especially considering that he was ranked in the Top 10 Searched list as an “Actor.”

  1. Ann, thanks a lot for sharing. :)

    This news is really amazing!

    SeungGi is # 1 of the Top 10 CF stars, filmed the most # of CFs (30) and consistently # 1 also in CF Model Preference Ranking for so many months since 2010 until Jan 2011. I can’t understand why he was not included in the list of the top 10 (or 20?) CF model earners that I read in AllKpop’s site. To think that the products he’s endorsing do not come cheap.

    • Exactly Im not really bother with him not being in the top 10 earners. I think when it come to money the best is to remain low key. As long as he able to afford a new apartment and most importantly he was able to give to charity to me he is rich. Rich in compassion, generousity, love etc. I even read that he donated all his Strong Heart earning to charity too. But having say all this I believe he is well paid for his cf. I think hook is doing a very good job in keeping this a secret. :)

  2. Hey guys we must definitely be thinking the same! I think the Allkpop translation on that article may have been inaccurate and the list was for “CF asking price or pricetags” and NOT “total CF earnings.”

  3. SMA and LSG they look good together and they are powerful endorser.. i wish they will have another project.. even here on the philippines MGIG madness
