Lee Seung-gi Greets Fans and Shares How He Found Happiness During Enlistment
Lee Seung-gi made a triumphant, if a bit chilly, comeback on October 31. But, this time the actor and balladier didn′t take to the stage to warm fans hearts, rather the date marked his official discharge from his compulsory military service.
Surrounded by fans and banners celebrating his return, the actor shared some thoughts on his service:
“Thank you so much for coming from far away despite the cold. This time which seemed like it would come, feels like it has arrived. When I was deployed in the Special Warfare Command, I was surprised and a little bit taken aback, but I am thankful for this experience. I came to know what happiness is by finding joy even in moments of pain. ...Over the last 21 months, through all of the interest and support I feel that was able to wrap up my military service without injury.”
There is no official word yet on his comeback project, but it has been rumored that Lee is considering a role in the tvN drama, “Hwayugi,” which would reunite him with the Hong sisters for the first time since 2010’s “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho.” Hong sisters’ veterans, “Greatest Love′s” Cha Seung-won and “You′re Beautiful′s” Lee Hong-gi, are already set to star.
Lee Seung-gi became known as a triple threat early on in his career after debuting as a singer in 2004 with the ballad “Because You’re My Girl,” followed by a successful career in the K-drama world, kickstarted by early projects like “Brilliant Legacy,” and the Variety realm with a five-year stint on “2 Days 1 Night.” On the program, Lee starred as the group’s youngest teammate and resident "heodang," a nickname loosely meaning “empty headed.” In case you would like a "heodang" refresher, we encourage searching any combination of “Lee Seung-gi” and “beer chicken.” There was never a truer battle than the one between a very “unpleasantly” roasted chicken and one very earnest celebrity.
