"It's a small world after all" ... with full of coincidences ;-) LOL
SEOUL—Nothing can really prepare you for a face-to-face encounter with Lee Seung-gi.
He was on a short break when I entered the interview room at the Imperial Palace Seoul on Sept. 11. We were going to talk about his latest action drama, the Netflix Original “Vagabond.” He walked into the interview area to sit on his chair. The cameras were not yet rolling as I sat across him.
He flew in from Bali, Indonesia, the day before for the shoot of his upcoming Netflix variety series with Taiwanese actor Jasper Liu. I searched his handsome face for traces of weariness. I found none. His skin was clear and smooth. He looked well-rested. Not a crease on his coat over his white T-shirt. When he caught me staring at him, he gave me a big smile.
This was what I would soon discover about him during the interview. He likes meeting people’s eyes with his own intense gaze, the kind of look that makes you fall for him twenty times.
When I greeted him “Annyeonghaseyo,” he slightly bowed his head and then greeted me back. And because my time with him was ticking away while I melted in his gaze, I took the opportunity to tell him what I wanted to say the moment I saw him.
“I am your fan,” I told him in my broken Korean. His smile got bigger.
“Oh, jinja (really)?” he said.
“I already have a ticket for your fanmeet,” I continued, doing my best to prolong the unfilmed conversation.
“Next month? In Manila? Thank you,” he said in English, looking surprised and pleased.
I was impressed. First, he deduced where I was from even when I didn’t tell him. I was the second journalist from the Philippines to talk to him and he remembered that it was the Philippines’ turn. Second, despite his heavy schedule, he has not lost track of time when his next fanmeet will be.
Smart with ‘hoedang charm’
The actor once told his fans to not go to him because he will go to them, a promise he will keep for PH fans.
The flawlessly beautiful Suzy Bae joined us and in a few minutes, the camera started rolling. I handed him a stuffed toy version of Inquirer’s mascot Guyito first. He took it and started moving to hand it to Suzy Bae. I told him, “no” and quickly handed another plush doll to his leading lady.
He was once described as “someone raised properly by his parents.” It’s in the small gestures that you find support for statements like this. He wanted his partner to get a gift first as the true gentleman that he is.
I asked him what he prepared for his PH Airen (Seung-gi’s fandom) attending the “Vagabond Voyage in Manila” fanmeet on Oct. 12 at the New Frontier Theater in Cubao. The event is organized by CDM Entertainment and ABS-CBN events.
“I’m visiting the Philippines for the first time next month. By then, around eight episodes of ‘Vagabond’ have been aired. I will be able to hear about their (PH Airen) reaction to the show,” said Seung-gi. “I will share with them some behind-the-scenes stories that I have to keep for now. I am very excited.”
Seung-gi knowing exactly how many episodes of his drama will have been aired by the time he visits Manila is very, very Seung-gi. He is hardworking and meticulous about his work. He once washed his hair outdoors during winter because he was going to perform onstage as part of a variety show challenge. He said he wanted to present his best to whoever is watching him, and that included senior citizens.
He is currently involved in three variety shows.
He is very smart especially about his career. He’s known for having “Hoedang charms” or in Filipino slang, “sabaw.” That came to be because his zeal often makes him look confused and lost in some ways. His mistakes make side-splitting comedy and memorable television moments. It balances out his otherwise perfect persona.
In “All the Butlers,” he said that he wanted to be the first Korean actor to have 1,000 projects. I asked him where exactly “Vagabond” is among his goals. He gave a small laugh and shook his head.
“This is why I didn’t want to say that while shooting ‘All the Butlers,’ but they insisted. So I gave them the number 1,000. If we say 1,000 episodes, I’ve worked on seven drama series so far. So I think the number of episodes goes well beyond 100 already,” he said. “I don’t know where ‘Vagabond’ stands in terms of numbers off the top of my head. But I am convinced that this is a show that helped me make the greatest leap in my acting career.”
He would later say that playing the lead role in “Vagabond” will be one of the biggest achievements for him. Super K’s video interview can be viewed on its Facebook account.
After eight minutes, we finally said our goodbyes. I walked outside and I sank on a chair trying to calm my beating heart. Good, I thought. At least, I didn’t forget to breathe while chatting with the Triple Threat Entertainer, Lee Seung-gi.
well ... with this name can't be other place than in the center ... LOL ;-)

New still cuts from Vagabond ....

"SBS has released new stills of Lee Seung Gi and Suzy from “Vagabond”!In the new stills, which preview the upcoming episode on October 11, Cha Dal Gun (played by Lee Seung Gi) and Go Hae Ri (played by Suzy) test their judo skills against each other. In between throws and takedowns, the two characters exude a decidedly romantic atmosphere, as Cha Dal Gun puts Go Hae Ri’s belt on for her and the two gaze into each other’s eyes.A source from the Celltrion Entertainment said, “You’ll be able to see a scene that’s [exactly the excellence you expect from Lee Seung Gi and Suzy]. You can look forward to how Cha Dal Gun and Go Hae Ri’s story moves forward amid the awkwardness after a sudden kiss.”The next episode of “Vagabond” airs October 11 at 10 p.m. KST."

Vagabond ost 4 “Hello my lover”
Well, this translation has an other vibe than the raw (google) one and fit for the drama ...
Suddenly, we’ve gotten
This much closer
As I became used to being with you
I guess I started to hope
Hello my lover
It’s nice to meet you
You’re quietly taking a step
Into my heart
On days I’m with you
I laugh a lot more
When I’m with you
It’s always like that
To me, you’re someone
That I’m always curious about
I want to hurry and run to where you are
To stay with you and forget everything else
Just like there are countless raindrops
Sleeping inside invisible clouds
There is a sadness hidden behind your smile
I think I know
If you want someone to hold onto you
I’m close to you
I’ll be next to you
So you can lean on me and rest
Hello my lover
By the way ... birthdays ;-)

It seems the pre-produced dramas make a better environment for the cast and help build up a nice friendship between them ;-) LOL
