When Will Lee Seung Gi Return to Variety?
Will Lee Seung Gi be coming back to variety? The multi-entertainer revealed that he wants to be in a variety show with a story.
On the June 6 broadcast of SBS’ One Night of TV Entertainment, Lee Seung Gi said, “I want to be in a lot of different types of variety because I like the genre, but most of all I want to try a new type [barely seen before]. I still like variety with a touching story behind it.”
His talk about variety can’t help but draw attention, as he hasn’t opened up on his plans for the subject ever since he left KBS2’s 1 Night, 2 Days and SBS’ Strong Heart.
Recently, through a post he left on his fan café, Lee Seung Gi said about variety, ‘Nothing has been confirmed yet. I guess they really need me. I know there are some fans that are worried about [my appearing in] variety, but please be aware that the road I’m on isn’t a stable road, but a challenging road I must pioneer."
"If I continue on as an actor just because I was praised for my acting now and I’ve opened my eyes to what acting is, everything will start falling backward in a short time," he wrote.
He means that he is open to new variety experiences, but that he’s trying to tread carefully on the subject.
The public, however, is already looking forward to seeing him on variety again, mostly because a character like his can’t be found in any other shows.
His talk about ‘variety with a story’ draws more anticipation because it seems to match with how he carried himself in 1 Night, 2 Days and Strong Heart.
In Strong Heart, he became the guests’ counselor, while in 1 Night, 2 Days he was sometimes ‘dumb’ yet thoroughly humane.
Lee Seung Gi is a singer and actor. He is also a born-to-be TV personality. They’ve seen Lee Seung Gi onstage and they’ve seen Lee Seung Gi immersed in his role, and now, viewers are looking forward to again seeing the ‘real Lee Seung Gi’ in variety.
