Dec 20, 2013. MBC Drama Awards. English translation of Seunggi’s speech…
2013 MBC Drama Awards – Seunggi cut
English: LSGfan, Video: MBCentertainment
Presenter: The winner of the 2013 MBC Top Excellence Actor Award for Miniseries is Gu Family Book’s Lee Seunggi. Congratulations.
HJH: In his role as Choi Kangchi in Gu Family Book, Lee Seunggi showed varied charms through action, melo, comedic acting and received a lot of love.
LSG: Thank you. It’s almost my 10th year being at awards shows, yet whenever I’m here, I don’t know why I can’t think straight. First off, thank you so much. I don’t think I thanked the fans earlier on when I won the Popularity Award and Best Couple Award, so thank you so much.
Through this project, I once again realized that a drama is not just individual effort, but it’s about team play. I’ve always felt, not only just me, that the staff are very precious to me.
For drawing Lee Seunggi and writing with her heart for this project, I want to say thank you once again to one of the best writers, Writer Kang.
And because all the actors on site were not at ease around him as he is quite charismatic, not the easiest Shin Woo Chul PD… Yet for me, filming was always enjoyable and I worked hard because it was such a great time. Saying sageuk is too hard, that he wouldn’t film a sageuk again… he’s currently in China directing a sageuk. (LOL)
Always stay healthy and I hope there will be an opportunity to work with PD and Writer again next time.
And also here today, our Suzy, more so than at the beginning, really growing step by step through her skills and helping to carry the drama to the end, I want to say thank you to Suzy. (Aw~ Suzy. Seunggi is SO thoughtful and humble. huhu. Crowd applauds. She’s very lucky to have worked with him).
Lastly, next year, it will be my 10th year. Walking this path for 10 years, the paths I need to take… whether it be drama, singing, variety. Not just as entertainer Lee Seunggi, but helping to direct the paths toward being an awesome man, I want to give this award honor to my mentor and master teacher, our Hook Entertainment’s President Kwon, And I want to say that I want to go forward together for a long long time.
And lastly to our staff who went through a lot during filming. I was on an unnecessary diet and always carrying meat, so thank you to our manager Hankook for cooking my meat in a fry pan each time (LOL). Thanks to them all. And to the viewers who loved our Gu Family Book, thank you again. Thank you. I’ll work hard.
for the totally deserving Top Excellence Award Actor win!
for making the cast and drama shine through your leadership and direction!
for being the consummate considerate, humble pro!
SO anticipating Seunggi’s next project all the more!
