2011 Seoul Drama Awards: Last year’s winner Lee Seunggi and Min Hyorin present Netizen Popularity Awards [ENG]

August 31, 2011.  Seoul, Korea.  A sharp dressed, wavy, well-coiffed Seunggi showed up at the Seoul Drama Awards as a presenter.  Different vibe compared to last year’s clean-cut, flat-iron hairstyle when he won the 2010 Netizen Popularity AwardFor this year’s award, when it was clear early on that Yoochun (winner) and Jang Geunsuk fans planned to all-out vote battle for first place, Seunggi fans in Korea were practical and didn’t do a voting drive since he won the award last year.  And as a presenter, Seunggi was great!  Very tall, at ease, confident, and articulate!  Such a pro!~

47th Baeksang Awards: Male Popularity vote results

Anyway, I still liked this article because the ranking wasn’t some random online survey or poll where fans just vote multiple times!  The report card is based on input from drama CPs, film representatives, and other industry experts; and Seunggi is #1 (again!).  Read the entire article…

SeungGi considered for lead in Sungkyunkwan Scandal

I can’t imagine anyone else playing the role of Cha Dae Woong in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho other than SeungGi!  Good thing he decided on the Hong Sisters project, as it seems he was considering other drama projects as well.  It was revealed on KBS Entertainment Relay show that SeungGi was a strong candidate for the lead role in current KBS drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal…
