January 22, 2017 MBC Section TV – Lee Seunggi cut
English: LSGfan, Video: seunggiairen
M1: The trend these days is singer and actor… there’s no boundary line.
M2: To the extent that TV viewers in their 50s and 60s could say, ‘what, they were singers?!’~ They are already actors. These are people who are more recognizable in that way.
[Starting as singers! Stars achieving great success as actors!]
M1: These are stars who have achieved great success as actors.
F1: We could call him the ‘Original’~ Lee Seunggi.
[Strong in music, strong in TV viewership ratings~ Lee Seunggi].
F1: Since his debut start, Lee Seunggi was successful as a singer and during the same time, he appeared in drama.
[2004 ‘Because You’re My Woman’ debut]
F1: Around the same time he debuted as a singer in 2004, he participated in ‘Nonstop 5’ and I think this was really smart. There was already an image about him early on… model student, relaxed nature image. And this image carried over with him into drama.
[Nation’s Younger Brother image carried over to his acting]
M1: You mean in ‘Nonstop 5?’ I was in ‘Nonstop 5’ too!
F1: Lee Seunggi then appeared in a weekend drama ‘Famous Princesses.
[After debuting as a singer, he began to full-fledged be involved in acting]
F1: He played a character who felt familiar/close, and received a lot of love from a lot of ajummas.
[2006 drama ‘Famous Princesses’ received a lot of love].
F1: Then after that, he appeared in weekend drama ‘Brilliant Legacy.’
[Passion for acting continues]
F1: He played the lead role together with Han Hyojoo.
[First lead role in 2009 drama ‘Brilliant Legacy’!]
F1: ‘Brilliant Legacy’s’ highest TV viewership rating reached 47.1%.
[Highest TV viewership rating was 47.1%]
F1: This kind of rating is really not an easy thing.
M1: That is truly brilliant!
F1: Then after that, there was ‘Gu Family Book’ and ‘The King 2 Hearts.
[Afterward, appearing in ‘Gu Family Book’ and ‘The King 2 Hearts’]
F1: Confirming that he was indeed MBC’s son!
F1: And he has gone to the army.
[Salute/Loyalty! Lee Seunggi is currently serving in the army]
M1: Lee Seunggi should be returning soon?!
M2: October. He’ll be returning this October.
[Scheduled to be discharged from the army, this October 2017!]
Excited about Seunggi returning this October!
Really hard to believe it will have been close to 2 years!
Not just fans, but industry insiders continue to anticipate his return to drama, singing, and variety. Seunggi really has that going for him~ love from fans is great, but doesn’t last forever. But favor and likeability from the general public, and of course talent(!) goes a long way.
Hope our Seunggi is staying healthy, happy, and warm this winter in the army♡
