Lee Seung Gi to Enlist in the Army on February 1
Singer Lee Seung Gi will be enlisting in the army on active duty.
Hook Entertainment stated on January 21, "Lee Seung Gi will be joining the army on February 1."
Lee Seung Gi stated through his agency, "I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the undeserving love I received until now, and I will return a real man."
Lee Seung Gi made his debut as a singer with Because You′re My Woman in 2004, before making his foray into the acting and variety worlds to become the ′Nation′s Little Brother.′ Through SBS′ Brilliant Legacy and KBS′ 1 Night, 2 Days, Lee Seung Gi received an enormous amount of attention, even earning the nickname ′Man of 70 percent viewer ratings.′
Lee Seung Gi was most recently cast to play a gifted matchmaker in the film Marital Harmony, which completed filming in four months, and he has wrapped his activities ahead of his enlistment.
His agency stated, "Ahead of his enlistment, Lee Seung Gi will be releasing a new song I′m Going to the Army on music sites at noon on January 21. It′s a song that conveys his appreciation for the love he received as a celebrity from fans."
Lee Seung Gi said, "I wasn′t sure when I would receive my notice of enlistment, so until now I was only preparing my heart for enlistment. And because I couldn′t say goodbye to everyone in person, I expressed my sorry heart in the song. Although the song is my story, I hope it′s a song that all reserve soldiers can relate to with their family and friends."
Meanwhile, I′m Going to the Army was created by producer Kim Do Hoon, who created Will You Marry Me?, Unfinished Story and And Goodbye. It is a charming song that conveys a man′s confession of love before he goes to the army through honest lyrics and Lee Seung Gi′s vocals.
