Here’s a news report on SeungGi winning KBS 2009 국민상:
(I’m not sure what the award is about, but it literally translates to National Award. KHD was one of the nominees as well.)
Here’s a short summary of the report (based on Chinese translation):
There were 5 nominees, and the winners are SeungGi and Kim Yuna.
Q: Why is Lee Seung Gi so popular?
A: As a super star, he has relatively few anti-fans. Because of his friendly and kind image, he’s been well accepted and liked by the people.
From singing to acting, Lee Seung Gi has been successful and well liked by audience of all ages. He seems to be perfect in every way, but got the nickname “Heo-Dang” due to some of his actions on entertainment programs.
Q: Why are you trying to do so much?
A: Whether in singing, acting, or entertainment, I have yet to become an entertainer who can represent any of these fields in Korea. Rather than being ambitious, it’s more because I feel so inadequate, I would like to try more things. I’m very grateful to the people who have cared about me.
