PD Park’s tweet:
Strong Heart started on October 6, 2009, so today’s broadcast on October 4 is Strong Heart’s 2 year anniversary. What a meaningful day. Please cheer for the young MC Lee Seung Gi’s Strong Heart that’s starting afresh.

I’m not quite sure what to make of this. Is it pure coincidence or is it fate?! SeungGi made his MC debut through Strong Heart 2 years ago. His first recording was on September 24, 2009, and the first broadcast was on October 6, 2009. Exactly 2 years later, he’s making his SOLO MC debut, also through Strong Heart. I don’t think anyone could have foreseen this, and I seriously doubt that Hook would want to plan SeungGi’s career this way. But the unexpected always happens and SeungGi is in a bind. Being the good person he is, the only thing he can do is make some more sacrifices, take on extra responsibilities, and rise to the occasion.
It’s true that SeungGi is (awfully) young, (distractingly) good-looking, and (regrettably?) lacking in life experiences. But he’s definitely not short on talent. In fact, he has so much talent that it will be a huge waste if he only devotes himself to emceeing. And because he has so much talent, he’s made himself indispensable in every area he’s involved in. That’s why the entire country was in uproar when he wanted to leave variety to focus on other parts of his career.
But now something unexpected happened and Kang Shim Jang is becoming Lee Shim Jang. As a fan of SeungGi the person, the only thing I can do is simply appreciate the sacrifices he’s making and support him in whatever steps he has to take.
So, happy 2nd anniversary to Strong Heart! And congratulations to MC Lee Seung Gi for the amazing progress he has made in the last 2 years!
