OK, continuing on with my excerpt translation… 😛 All these magazine articles are very similar to each other. They ask SeungGi similar questions, and SeungGi gives them similar answers each time. All the reporters seem to have only good things to say about SeungGi. 😀
SeungGi was asked about his earlier husky voice:
Because I debuted with the concept of rock ballad, and huskiness can better convey the raw feelings, so that was the vocal style I used. I was still young at that time, so I wanted to show people a more mature image. After that, I gradually learned to put more emotion into my singing, and also grasped the techniques of narrative singing, so my vocal style changed completely.
SeungGi was also asked which story left him the deepest impression on Strong Heart:
Every story has left a deep impression on me. But not long ago, I was really touched by SNSD Sooyoung’s story of her communicating with ex-basketball player Park Sung Il who was hospitalized due to Lou Gehrig’s Disease. After hearing the love story of Park Sung Il and his girlfriend who takes care of him at the hospital, I wanted to do something too. I got their contact information from Sooyoung, and I sent them a gift.
