Part 2 – Currently Most Brilliant/Radiant Young Man Lee Seunggi
English: LSGfan via Cosmopolitan Korea
[Q]: Since both of you (Seunggi and Eunkyung) are actors who are adept with the comical, we’re anticipating your chemistry.
[Seunggi]: Although there is a slightly comical element, it is a fundamentally serious movie so we are conveying even the comical scenes a bit more minutely. I’m acting with restraint to get away from my previous comedic acting, and as Shim Eunkyung has her own individual comedic code, I feel there’s a great synergy.
[Q]: Apart from movies, you looked comfortable dishing out offensive jokes to the Hyungs on ‘New Journey to the West.’ It was kind of shocking since it was the complete opposite of your upstanding model image.
[Seunggi]: Actually that is how I really am. I was just being the way I’ve always been, but perhaps since I haven’t really participated in variety programs much following ‘1 Night 2 Days,’ this was viewed as refreshingly new.
Even in sunglasses and a simple sweater, it is more than sufficient to show onself. Sweater and pants each $850 all Prada. Sunglasses $165 Projekt Produkt.
[Q]: Everyone seriously busted out laughing when you threw out nicknames ‘Sangamdong Betting Man’ for Lee Sugeun and ‘Yeoido Divorcee Man’ for Eun Jiwon.
[Seunggi]: Honestly, all guys joke around like that when they drink or get together. Since it’s more weird to cover up the slights that everyone knows and to pretend not knowing. I merely just said things as they were but I didn’t know there would be such an explosive response.
[Q]: Perhaps there was something comfortable about traveling with people you’re comfortable with. During ‘Noonas Over Flowers’ you mentioned wanting to travel a lot, have you been able to travel a lot?
[Seunggi]: Only short 3-4 days after wrapping up a project. Later on, I want to leave for Europe. I haven’t traveled to Europe for vacation yet.
Standing on one’s own in an alley, in oversized coat draped on the shoulders. Coat $6800 Missoni. Turtleneck sweater price unavailable Christophe Lemaire. Sweater $765 Marni. Denim pants $850 Unused. Sneakers $850 Valentino.
[Q]: Are you the type to thoroughly make plans before traveling?
[Seunggi]: I do make basic appropriate plans. But I only make dining plans. I decide where to eat lunch and dinner before traveling, but I don’t really make other travel plans.
[Q]: Seems like you like to eat. You ate really well on ‘New Journey to the West.’ I thought you would be the thoroughly moderation type.
[Seunggi]: Since I eat well, I diligently work out. I used to moderate a lot a while back, but at some point, it felt as if I was following and moving according to some notion conjured up by others. You’re supposed to take care of yourself so you can be more healthy and bright, but it felt like my brightness kept getting shaved away and that was stressful. I think it’s more important to capture the balance that’s right for my body.
Realized the importance of stopping for a moment. Coat $1550 Dries Van Noten. Sweater $900 Gucci. Shirt price unavailable Burberry. Denim pants $350 Frame at Mue. Sneakers $500 Our Legacy at Beaker.
[Q]: I hear you cook well, having learned how to cook. What’s the most recent food you made?
[Seunggi]: I have a lot of interest but having learned a few times is all. I like to take expensive meals you eat at restaurants and make them at home, generously using good quality ingredients. Recently, I made roe pasta, buying really good quality roe and scraping in a lot of roe, making for half roe and half noodles.
[Q]: I think you’d be good at doing a variety program related to cooking or a food concept next time?
[Seunggi]: Actually, there was various plannings prior to filming ‘New Journey to the West.’ And eating street food fighter style abroad was also one of the ideas. Rather than thinking of it as work, variety genre is like a playground for me, where I can really comfortable laugh and joke around. It is most instinctive to me and matches well with me. Whereas acting and music are things that attract and draw me in and I feel I have to continually work hard at it.
Not made up and just as he is himself makes us fall for him more. Coat price unavailable Burberry. Sweater, shirt, denim pants all price unavailable Dior Homme. Shoes $400 All Saints.
[Q]: Seems you can afford more spare time now, since you’ve endured a packed 11 years.
[Seunggi]: Seems I can afford a bit more spare time. There are days where I feel I can let go of things and rest and I don’t think so pressingly about things. This is something I came to realize more recently. Up to this point, I worked without getting tired, and didn’t have any slumps and all the programs I participated in did so well. However, no one can continuously maintain their best days. Even if you’re active without resting. But if you continue to take good care, seems like you go straight forward with those shining days coming again and again. Before when I did a project, I would even think ‘Will this be a success or will it fail?’ but now, I think it is up to the plans of heaven. However, the energy of really wanting to do it, and do it well, is of course necessary.
[Q]: Next year will be the last year of your 20s and you’ll be 30 soon. What should we anticipate of Lee Seunggi in his 30s?
[Seunggi]: I really feel like it’s now the era of the real Lee Seunggi. In my early and mid-20s, I really thought I had found myself but that wasn’t the case. When I reached my late 20s, my own masculinity and straightforward ways just came out naturally. I too am curious to see how I will really be from hereon. If there was no resistance to myself in ‘New Journey to the West’ then it will be even more fun to see how my self spreads out from hereon. I hope to show all of myself to my heart’s desire in my 30s.
Retaining a familiar yet warm image, we anticipate the refreshingly new manner of Lee Seunggi. Turtleneck sweater $680 Jill Sander.
Seunggi~♡ love ya more and more every time.
Gotta admit, I’m excited to see Lee Seunggi as he enters his prime from hereon!
