Psy and Seunggi’s ‘Because you’re my Woman’ connection

Psy’s always been one of the top loved performers in Korea (returning to glory after being banned from tv and eventually doing military service… twice!  Regaining the public’s love.)  But he’s totally blown up with catchy, over-the-top ‘Gangnam style!’  (smart to sign with YG!)  Y-star press coverage of his recent concert…

And the roof catching on fire!  @3:05.  He was freaked out too!  But he’s a total pro and quickly calmed everyone down by singing Seunggi’s ‘Because you’re my Woman,’ acappella!  It’s like a song for all generations!  Loved how the crowd sang along…

Popularity Award win

Presenters (President of High1 Resort, Actress Lee Yoon Ji): Should I reveal the first winner of the High1 Popularity Award?  Lee Seunggi. Congrats!.

MCs: Congratulations! Coming in #1 in mobile voting. He is the first winner of the the High1 Popularity Award. He receives this honor with 37.1% of the votes. As this is an award selected directly by fans, it is even more meaningful. Your acceptance speech please.

LSG: Thank you. As mentioned earlier, since this award is 100% voted for by fans, I am so happy and feel it’s that much more meaningful. Thank you to our fanclub Airen for working hard to allow me to win this award. Thank you for always being such a strong support. I will always work harder, thank you. And for working so hard with me and supporting me on this 5th album, I want to say thank you again to our Hook Entertainment family members, who I really depend on and respect. Thank you. I will work hard.

Bonsang Award win [@1:35]

Presenters: We’ll reveal the final Bonsang winner. The 21st High1 Seoul Music Bonsang Award – Lee Seunggi.

MCs: Wow, Lee Seunggi is really busy today. He just won the Popularity Award, and now it’s the Bonsang Award. No longer Nation’s younger brother, but Nation’s singer, Nation’s MC, showing us his varied talents. Having released Time for Love and Because We’re Friends, he is a Ballad Prince. It may seem that he’s good at everything, there’s one thing he can’t do… they say he’s not good with driving directions. Let’s see if he can find his way to the acceptance… Oh, he’s already there. Your acceptance speech please.

LSG: Invited to such a wonderful event, I’m very thankful to have received 2 awards. Honestly, promoting my 5th album after 2 years, I felt I was lacking in many ways, but I was able to get through it well because of our fans and the many people who showed a lot of love. I’m always thankful. A person I highly respect, a mentor I’d like to be together with always…  thank you again to Hook Entertainment President Kwon for helping me to make a good album like this 5th album and for always being by my side. And together for 10 years, our Hook Entertainment [executives] and all the Hook family, thank you again. There’s so many people to thank. For being by my side during the recording of all the songs and providing vocal direction, I want to say thank you to Lee Sunhee sunbaenim. Never being lazy, I will approach my music with sincerity, not forgetting my earlier days. Thank you.

Seunggi performs at Chanel Korea company holiday party


Dec. 5, 2011.  OMG, on this day, when I read Seunggi showed up at Chanel Korea‘s year end company holiday party, I was SO excited!  CHANEL is my mom’s and mine ALL-TIME fave classic handbag and fragrance brand!  The classic quilted Chanel bag is timeless AND the “now and forever fragrance” Chanel No.5 is still the only scent my mom wears till this day!  But as usual… Seunggi + [Cody & Hairstylist] = OMG WTF!!!!

Omg, LOVE Chanel’s dazzling holiday campaign- christmas2011.chanel.com


So, I’m in GLEE because it’s CHANEL + SEUNGGI!  But then, it’s like DEPRESSION because of his despicable HAIRSTYLIST!!  Why the poofy, feathered, ajusshi hair for him… for a Chanel event?!  OMG.  So disappointing.  So annoying.  (but I’m used to this now, which is why I can only post a whiles after the fact- to avoid the expletives!!)

Girls, Dating, Relationships: Seunggi’s 5th album MVs [ENG]

So after listening to all the SONGS on the 5th album, Seunggi (at least the SINGER part) is all over the place on girls, dating, and relationships!  (Like A LOT of us!)

He likes naturally cute, and NOT all glammed up, superficial types in Just You.  But then he’s totally drawn to the “uptown, caffe-latte, fragrant girl” and wants her to “play with me, do whatever you want” in Slave!  (Omg, the lyrics are… woah!  Hehe.)

And he can’t risk his friendship with a girl he’s totally crushing on because she’s fallen for some undeserving jerk in Because We’re Friends.  Yet in Time for Love he mans up, gets over trying to be all cool, and finally just asks the girl out!  (Guys I like!)

I love that all the relationship drama (that drives us crazy!) gets tossed out in Tonight!  But then Song to Make you Smile is SO heartbreaking…  “You can be happy again.  Separation and pain is only momentary.”  Breakup from I’m a Bad Guy Seunggi?!~

Aw, and I really hope he gets to chill and go ANYWHERE and do whatever he wants!  Love the vibe of this song… very Seunggi!  After he talked about how much he put into this album, how proud and happy he was with it on the MNET MIC interview, it made me all Aw! and have more affection for the songs.  Hope to see more fanmade and live performances online!  (Album tracklist + song collaborators at end of post).

And yes, I am TOTALLY in new drama anticipation and Actor Lee Seunggi mode~~!!

Tonight

[Nov 25, 2011] The BEST and HOTTEST album promotional performance/interview thus far!  (Aside from daebak promo of 5th album with Dolce & Gabbana!  Hehe!)  I KNEW Yoo Hee Yeol would GLEE if Seunggi ever did Sketchbook!  He really enjoyed teasing Sung Shi Kyung about it!  YHY = Yoon Do Hyun LSG fan-sunbae!  Loved that this was mostly about the music, yet still very funny!  (Thx Sketchbook for editing out the headline-grabbing, non-relevant parts of the interview!)  He sounded A-MAZING~!
