Crush of the day: Lee Seung Gi
OK. So I know this is banal and trite but what can I say, I like Lee Seung Gi. I had no idea who he was when I started watching Brilliant Legacy but I have to say that he turned me onto “1N2D” (my last crush) and the now defunct “X-Man” which introduced me to the world of Korean Entertainment (outside of the big named stars). So for taking me down this path, I’m grateful to my eternal dong-seng, Seung Gi. Here’s the anatomy of the crush:
Intrigue: Brilliant Legacy ep 1 – 11
When I first started watching Brilliant Legacy, I didn’t have any special affinity towards Lee Seung Gi. I found the show passable to watch and I found Lee Seung Gi interesting enough to look him up. He had some cute scenes, like the one below. (I actually had the most interest in Moon Chae Won because I had already seen her on Painter of the Wind.) I, of course, learned that he was a singer (who knew!) and that he had been fairly active in the variety circuit.
Intrigue: Brilliant Legacy ep 12 – 28
It was in the second half of the kdrama, where I fell in love with Sunwoo Hwan and LSG. After he falls from grace, his character becomes multi-dimensional and it’s nice to watch the change in our Hwannie. LSG did a good job of portraying his softer side and added in a fun, cartoonish aspect to Hwan. They say that pictures speak a thousand words…
My LSG crush led me to watching episodes of “X-man”. I remember watching it once in awhile when it was on TV but seeing it again brought me lots of laughs. LSG was a regular on the show. And as the resident mak-nae (baby), he brought all of his cuteness to the show. Here is a montage of his best moments:
It’s almost like this is another I love 1N2D post and maybe it is… because 1N2D is the real reason for my LSG crush. I love his huh-dang ways even though he’s a smarty. (He completed his undergrad in 4 years and is currently attending grad school.) And I’m sure all LSG fans remember his I’m pretty like Sohee antics. It’s just too cute for words. I really could go on forever if I start talking about all of my favorite LSG 1N2D moments, so I’ll stop here (for now).
