Renowned singer and actor Lee Seung-gi, 25, has been known as a model student to the public. So, he thinks that being honest is most important.
“Now it is easy to find out who is is fake, so I have to be honest,” Lee said in an interview with Herald Business on Monday.
Lee does not get stressed about the difference between his real life and his image in the media.
“Even if I am an icon of solicitude, I cannot be nice for every person. I disregard the fake despite it being advantageous to me.”
About sorting the trash at Chuseok, Lee said that he does not usually separate items. When he appeared on TV show “1 Night 2 Days,” he was given that very task, but broke some dishes. The show’s subtitles joked that he was not familiar with such work.
“People around me have to feel that that is the real Lee Seung-gi whom they know.”
After finishing “The King to Hearts,” a TV drama in which Lee appeared as a king, he had a concert at Budokan in Japan, drawing 8,000 people. He was impressed by the Japanese fans.
“8000 people concentrated on the concert as if they were in small theater,” Lee said. “I found out why many musicians want to play at Budokan.” He also thought that Japanese fans preferred dance music to ballads.
About “The King to Hearts,” he said that he was embarrassed for its low ratings. However, he was satisfied with the expansion of his acting range.
Lee also referred his military duty. He said, “I am going to serve in my duty, and I also decided when I will join it.”
