[Star of the Week] Friends of LeeSsang We Wish were Our Friends
After being in the business for 10 years, LeeSsang’s become well-connected in the industry, and with their good personalities, Gary and Gil have been making friends with everyone from singers, actors, to entertainers, creating the ultimate friend list that we’re completely jealous of.
Ryu Seung Bum
It’s unclear how the actor and the hip-hop duo ended up becoming friends, but they must be BFFs, with Ryu Seung Bum showcasing his superb acting skills in not one, but four of LeeSsang’s music videos.
From I’m Not Laughing to Ballerino, Ryu Sung Bum has been the star of LeeSsang’s music videos since 2003 and it seems like the friendship won’t die anytime soon.
We bet when these three party, it’s all kinds of crazy.
Lee Hyori and LeeSsang haven’t been shy about showing their friendship in front of the public as both sides have featured in each other’s musical endeavors. Lee Hyori appeared in LeeSsang’s Can’t Breakup Girl, Can’t Breakaway Boy music video, (which Ryu Seung Bum also came out in) and LeeSsang did the same when Gary rapped for Lee Hyori in Swing.
Also, when LeeSsang had its concert in Busan back in September, Lee Hyori made a surprise appearance and didn’t hesitate when she was asked to perform some of her hit songs, displaying the close relationship she has with the group.
And honestly, who doesn’t want to be friends with this sexy lady?
Son Ye Jin, Gong Hyo Jin, BoA, and other A-List Female Stars
As mentioned before on SBS’ You and I, Gil revealed that he has many connections, especially with beautiful female stars. He said on the show that he’s come to know many of these A-list stars, such as Son Ye Jin and Gong Hyo Jin, since they were young.
And he proved his friendship with these ladies when he tweeted on July 16, thanking Gong Hyo Jin, Son Ye Jin, BoA, Ryu Hyun Kyung, Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and Um Jung Hwa, for coming to and enjoying LeeSsang’s concert. Some of the ladies even stuck around back stage after the concert and partied with the group.
Could the key to getting friends like these be throwing awesome after-parties?
Zo In Sung
We were completely surprised when it was revealed that this flower boy heartthrob was actually pretty close with the LeeSsang pair.
Perhaps their friendship blossomed when Zo In Sung appeared on MBC’s Infinity Challenge in a rowing special, where he helped the members through rigorous training. Or maybe earlier than that, since Zo In Sung personally helped promote LeeSsang’s eighth album right before its release.
In the end, it doesn’t really matter how they know each other. What’s important is that we’re jealous that LeeSsang is friends with Zo In Sung.
Infinity Challenge & Running Man Crew
How we would love to be friends with everyone on both the Infinity Challenge and Running Man teams.
Not only are they just talented and hilarious human beings, but they’ve proved that they would be amazing friends, especially through the whole drama that occurred with the Super 7 Concert, which pushed Gary and Gil to leave the variety world.
The members of both variety shows took the risk of canceling the filming to try to persuade LeeSsang back on the show and not to take the blame for an unfortunate problem that occurred.
Fortunately for everyone in the situation, including us, Gary and Gil decided to return to with the support of the Running Man and Infinity Challenge teams.
Which of LeeSsang’s BFF would you want to be friends with?
