Lee Seunggi channels Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’

There’s gotta be a new person behind @hookent3.  Witty photo tweet.  Wonder who’s idea?  Curious if Seunggi studied any Art History… If yes, I’m really a goner!  He perfectly channels Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’~~  ha.  Plus, only he could come off totally clean-cut, preppy, and classy in a ‘Guilty Parties’ statement cardigan!

The 5th year! This is Lee Seunggi thinking over an even more upgraded 2013 Lee Seunggi Hope Concert.^^ Finally, ticketing opens next Tuesday! Inviting Airens world-wide to the concert~~^^ (October 18, 2013)

English: LSGfan via twitter@hookent3

Since Airens all over the WORLD are being invited….
how about including ‘Lee Seunggi’ in English too next time?
Even WeMakePrice picked up quickly and began adding ‘Lee Seung Gi’ to its tweets!

So here’s the original from Musée Rodin~

A perfect concept match with Seunggi…???  (um, minus the clothing thing)
Hope he gets time to vacay in romantic Paris~~~ forever one of my fave cities!

Auguste Rodin (1840 -1917)
The Thinker
1903.  H. 189 cm ; W. 98 cm ; D. 140 cm

When conceived in 1880 in its original size (approx. 70 cm) as the crowning element of The Gates of Hell , seated on the tympanum, The Thinker was entitled The Poet. He represented Dante, author of the Divine Comedy which had inspired The Gates, leaning forward to observe the circles of Hell, while meditating on his work. The Thinker was therefore initially both a being with a tortured body, almost a damned soul, and a free-thinking man, determined to transcend his suffering through poetry. The pose of this figure owes much to Carpeaux’s Ugolino (1861) and to the seated portrait of Lorenzo de’ Medici carved by Michelangelo (1526-31).

While remaining in place on the monumental Gates of Hell, The Thinker was exhibited individually in 1888 and thus became an independent work. Enlarged in 1904, its colossal version proved even more popular: this image of a man lost in thought, but whose powerful body suggests a great capacity for action, has became one of the most celebrated sculptures ever known. Numerous casts exist worldwide, including the one now in the gardens of the Musée Rodin, a gift to the City of Paris installed outside the Panthéon in 1906, and another in the gardens of Rodin’s house in Meudon, on the tomb of the sculptor and his wife.

Nice promo from DCLSG fan………..

So I had to throw in the English!
‘Happiness and Anger, Sadness and Joy’~~ feeling of ‘mixed emotions’ concept.
Goes really well with LSG’s intense thinking pose~~?!
Hook could even use her photo tweet for one of the concert posters!
