Message from Lee Seung Gi to all his fans

It’s been a long time. This is South Korean King Lee Jae Ha^^ 2012-05-26

Hello Airen~! 
While fully resting yesterday after things wrapped up, and sorting things out in my heart 
Today, I bid you my final goodbye..^^

From the first filming on February 1 through the final filming on May 23.. 
I was really happy living as Lee Jae Ha from The King 2 Hearts.

To be together with the best on-site staff and the best actors 
It was so fun and each and every day was a continuous learning experience…

And on top of that, even the best fans Airens.. standing by me 
I will never forget the gifts and sincerity you provided to strengthen me as well as our staff during the 4 months..^^ 
I sincerely thank you once again..^^!!

Honestly, I despaired a lot during the month of February.. Sensing a lot of my acting limitations 
And in working together with such a fine array of senior actors, the thought of not wanting to become ‘that person’ allowed me to act, focused and on the ball each and everyday..^^ㅋㅋ

I wondered when 20 episodes would end but things really ended in an instant. 
To the degree I felt sad.. maybe fans feel this way too?

I think it will be hard to meet someone like Lee Jae Ha again 
I think a lot of him will linger with me..^^

Since I’m planning to talk about things more in-depth later on in an interview through the media/press, I’ll carefully wrap things up and share then^^

However, setting Lee Jae Ha slightly aside, I’m putting in my all for the Budokan Concert on June 1. It’s going to be great because once again, I will be working with the best musicians..!ㅋㅋ The god of guitar will be part of the band.. With Ham Choon Ho hyung-nim involved there should be another different type of live feel.. Please anticipate this^^

Also, recently, there were news reports about me doing a variety program.. 
Nothing has been decided yet! 
When it comes to variety, there’s always a ruckus with the media outlets first^^ㅋㅋ 
I guess I’m really needed, right~? ㅋㅋ

It seems like some of you expressed concern about me doing variety programs..^^ 
I know there are several fans, with my best interest at heart, who want to see me remain as the cool Lee Jae Ha and then go into another project~^^ 
I would like that too..ㅠ Things would be much easier that way..^^??

But you know the path I travel has always been one that takes on new challenges and is pioneering, versus that of a stable path..^^?

Having received some acting praise now.. thinking ah, now I get what acting is about, and if I were to insist on the path of acting like that.. 
It would probably result in a setback as soon as you know it.. Everything..ㅋ

Also, as I’ve always walked an unexpected path up until now, I am trusting Airens had loved me^^

Although I usually don’t like to talk too much like this, I thought sharing how I really feel about this would help to give fans a peace of mind, and so I wrote a few lines..^^

Even though I talk like this, the most important thing is that nothing has been decided yetㅠㅠ 
I ended up talking as if I was doing something soon^^;;ㅋㅋㅋ

Without delay, I won’t rest and will diligently greet you in variety or singing or acting so

Whichever mode I greet you in, our fans should not lose strength and please follow me well^^ ㅋㅋㅋ 
If you’re preparing to support me in a drama when I’m active as a singer~~~`

Ahn-dwep-nee-dah!!!!! Ddeng! !!!!! ㅋㅋㅋ [You can't! No!] 
It’s been a long time since I said that ㅋㅋ

While in one place one second, then somewhere else before you know it, I’ll greet you then, so let’s go together!!

For loving The King 2 Hearts 
To all the fans who loved King Lee Jae Ha

I say, thank you and thank you again.. 
I love you..^^

Lee Seung Gi praised by sunbaes on the set of ‘The King 2hearts’

Singer and actor Lee Seung Gi is much loved by his sunbae actors.

Lee Seung Gi is currently playing the role of Lee Jae Ha on MBC drama ‘The King 2hearts’. Lee Jae Ha is a complex character who was a childish and selfish prince but is forced to become the king because of the death of his older brother whom he loved.

The royal chief of staff Eun Gyu Tae (played by Lee Soon Jae) is someone who has been with the royal family through thick and thin for over 30 years so he has seen the playful and childish Lee Jae Ha grow up with his own eyes. Because of that, Eun Gyu Tae has feelings against Lee Jae Ha since he doesn’t believe that Lee Jae Ha is deserves to become the king,

But what would their relationship be like behind the scenes? Lee Soon Jae is a talented veteran who is not afraid to dish out constructive criticism but it turns out, he has nothing but praises and kind words towards Lee Seung Gi for his talents as an actor and his polite manners.

On May 9th, an insider of ‘The King 2hearts’ relayed to OSEN, “Lee Seung Gi truly enjoys and is grateful for the opportunity to work with such great sunbaes like Lee Soon Jae and Yoon Yeo Jung. Lee Seung Gi really plays the role of the mood maker on set. Watching Lee Seung Gi that way, the sunbaes really give a lot of advices and the mood on set is really great.”

‘The King 2hearts’ has been planned for a total of 20 episodes and so far, 15 episodes have aired. Once episode 16 airs on May 10th, there will only be 4 episodes left truly delving in towards the end of the drama. Most Korean dramas are filmed to be shown immediately as they go once it reaches the middle of the story but ‘The King 2hearts’ has more room helping the actors and staff reach for perfection with each and every episode.

Kim Hyun Joong Successfully Completes Fan Meeting in Singapore

Singapore being the first stop of "Kim Hyun Joong Fan Meeting 2012" Asia Tour, Kim Hyun Joong has really set the standard for the upcoming shows to be held in Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Thailand later this month. Held on May 4, the Korean heartthrob wowed the fans and media not only with his slick dance moves, but also with his sincerity that impressed the audience during this first-ever personal fan meeting here. Kim Hyun Joong's previous visits were for TheFaceShop promotional activities and 2011 Mnet Asia Music Awards.

A total of fifteen songs were performed, including two for encore stage. "Smile" was performed for the very first time to a live audience. I found it pretty amusing when the U:ZOONSIN bank notes were blown into the air as Kim Hyun Joong came on to sing "Do You Like That," the fans in the floor area were busy grabbing the alien currency instead of watching his performance.

Kim Hyun Joong also performed "Because I'm Stupid," an OST from "Boys Over Flowers" originally bySS501 trio unit made up of Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong and Kim Hyung Jun.

During the stage activities segment, five fans were randomly selected to play a mind game with Kim Hyun Joong if they managed to find a sticker under their seat. There were only four prizes so the first loser would leave with nothing. But who would have guessed that the first to be ousted from the game would actually emerged the biggest winner as she was led backstage to participate in the next song!

Besides giving away a huge teddy bear to another fan, Kim Hyun Joong also made a point to get close to the fans by coming out from a corner of the floor seating area for the first encore song. Fans of course dashed forward in hopes of touching the star.

The fan meeting soon came to a close but the fans' spirits were still high as it wasn't the end yet! Everyone was waiting eagerly for Kim Hyun Joong to come back on stage while the staff and crew gets ready for the high-five session. This is a record not to be easily broken as Kim Hyun Joong spent more than an hour to give handshakes or high-fives to the 3,000 fans present.

Quoting an ardent fan Alice Chen's comment on Facebook, "I have been to so many performances but this is really the best so far. Even better than the one in Seoul. Could feel his sincerity 100%!" I couldn't help but agree that this fan meeting is certainly of a concert standard and K-Pop fans would be expecting more for future fan meetings that would be held in Singapore.

Lee Dong Wook's Elementary, Middle, and High School Yearbook Photos Prove His Natural Good Looks

Earlier today, SBS “Good Morning” unveiled graduation photos of actor Lee Dong Wook. As shown in the photos, Lee Dong Wook was blessed with great looks from a young age, and his elementary, middle, and high school yearbook photos proved his unchanging flower boy image. However, Lee Dong Wook appears to be very reserved and introverted in the photos.

Hence, “Good Morning” brought in his middle school classmate to pry into his childhood. His friend, Kwon Min Jung, revealed that Lee Dong Wook’s every little action was enough to attract his female classmates’ attention. She revealed, “In middle school, the president of each class had to come out and either sing or dance. As most of you who’ve seen him in ‘Strong Heart,’ he’s not a good dancer. But he did a little twist, which was absolutely adorable. Afterwards, the girls talked only about that [Lee Dong Wook’s dance] for at least a month.” 

Meanwhile, Lee Dong Wook has challenged himself with a new role as MC of SBS “Strong Heart.” While he’s well known internationally for his popular dramas, Lee Dong Wook had no prior experience in emceeing. Hence, many viewers expressed their doubts in Lee Dong Wook’s ability to host a variety show. However, it’s been a little over a month since “Strong Heart’s” transition to the new MCs, and Lee Dong Wook has silenced many of those skepticisms with his witty remarks and actions.
