11.10.27 One Year Blog Anniversary

Gosh, how time flies! And I’m quite amazed that I actually managed to stay at one place long enough to celebrate this. πŸ˜› I’ve been a fan for over 2 years now, but I spent 9 months on soompi, 3 months on Tumblr, then finally made my move to wordpress on October 27, 2010. So this blog is officially 1 year old today! πŸ˜€

I wasn’t planning to make a big deal out of this, but it just so happened that SeungGi picked this special date to release his 5th album! πŸ˜› So, to celebrate this lucky coincidence, I decided to give away one copy of the 5th album along with the poster (and a chance to win 2 tickets to SeungGi’s concert, as promised by Hook that there are 100 pairs of invitation tickets included in the 50,000 copies of the 1st printed edition).

All you need to do to participate is tell me where you’re from and what you like about the 5th album (I’m assuming that you like the album since you want a copy of it! :P). The deadline will be a week from today, let’s say 11:59pm PST on November 3. I’ll pick the winner randomly by lottery.

(For those of you who are already planning on buying the album, please don’t let this postpone your plan. If you do win, you can pass along the extra copy to someone else who might need a little extra convincing to become an Airen. :lol:)

    hi, i am from malaysia… what i like about this album is that there is the other side of seunggi that he showed to his fan.. throughout this album, seunggi also shares his feelings and thoughts with us, airens…example like time for love and just you…while songs like slave and anywhere really spellbounded me.. so for me, slave and anywhere are my #1 fav in this album… πŸ™‚

  4. I’m from the Philippines. I love aaaall the tracks/songs on his 5th album. DAEBAK! Especially his SLAVE song feat. Pdogg.

  5. myseunggiya says:

    I’m Camille Torres from the Philippines.
    I loved the album more simply because Seung Gi participated in making it. It’s like a mother whose hands-on to her child. He wrote some of the songs which makes it more personal. We can hear a different side of Seung Gi in the album, from a young boy to the man in every woman’s dream. My favorite song is Slave and Anywhere. πŸ™‚

    • myseunggiya says:

      Due to my excitement upon reading your blog, I forgot to congratulate you.
      Thank you for your undying support for LSG which you shares here and have the fans like us get to know the latest update. You’re a blogger sent from SeungGiTown. πŸ™‚


  6. leyzlie says:

    Happy first anniversary Tryp! Thanks for all the updates, it’s almost a regular routine for me to visit your blog first.. hehe
    I want to participate and give it a try.. ^^

    I’m from the Philippines. I super dooper love/ like his 5th album so much because Lee Seung Gi shows versatility with this album. The album has different song genres and appeal that each song are worth remembering. You can rock out (Slave), sing RnB/ jazz like (Anywhere), ballad (because your my friend) and the like. There’s something in each song that differentiates with one another. Also, LSG himself participated in some of the lyrics of the songs which makes it more special. It is the best album ever.. ^_^

  7. Airen_小妍 says:

    Haha can i participate?
    I am Airen from Hong Kong.
    This should be my favourite album among all from Lee Singer. As there are great variety in song styles, it really shows Seung Gi’s singing talent! One very great thing is that he started to compose melodies and lyrics and those are adorable ones:)

    PS: Congratulate for the 1st anniversary of your blog:) And thanks a lot for always posting updated information of Seung Gi:)

  8. Congratulations TRYP96!!^___________^ Thank you coz I need not to worry where to look for updates about Lee Seung Gi. I just visit your blog and know everything I’ve missed. Hehee ^^ HWAITING! πŸ˜€

  9. torrtis says:

    And I thought we readers should be the one sending you gifts. Thank you for this fantastic blog.

    I’m from Singapore. The 5th album shows his gradual improvement and maturity in vocals with each album. My favorite track is Anywhere. Acoustic guitar, slightly different vocal technique than his usual, great arrangement and rhythm. Great song to play when traveling: on the bus, plane, open-top convertible etc.

  10. geeze says:

  12. Hi I’m fr Singapore and I love every single song in this album esp Anywhere, Time for love, Aren’t we friends and Slave….just cant stop listening to them over and over again. When I started listening from his 1st album to the last, I thought each album surpasses the previous album and Tonight definitely TOPS it all. Greatly admire Seung Gi for always challenging new depths and surpassing his high standards. πŸ˜€

    P.S. Sincere appreciation and Thx for all your timely update. Your blog is the 1st and last I go to everyday. :DDDD

  13. Yon says:

    Congratulation on the 1st anniversary of tryp96.wordpress.com!!!! It’s only 1year? I feel that it has been more than that.. Hehe.. You must have been feeding us with so much info/news,etc that I feel this blog had been here much much longer.

    I want to try my luck on the cd/poster/chance to win the concert ticket too.

    I’m from Singapore and why I like this album? Every album is precious, but I can say that this 5th album is the one that SGi sweat the most before releasing it. From a tight schedule, to the unexpected incidents that happen to 1N2D & SH, he managed to do a full album & release it within this period. He even find time to write part of the lyrics for 2songs. As a first timer in writing the lyrics, it is definitely a good try. He never disappoint us in everything he does. He set high standard for himself so that we will not be disappointed. He also has different genre of songs in this album to cater to fans who have different preference. That’s why I like this album..

    • @Yon πŸ˜‰

      You are so right!!I I can’t agree with you more!! In spite of, or perhaps because of, the exceptional trying time Lee Seung Gi has had to go through with all the debacle involving Kang Ho Dong’s tax evasion, perhaps by turning to his first love, singing and writing lyrics and songs, he was able to cope with the emotional trauma he has had to undergo and sought solace, comfort and respite from all of it and derive some semblance of normalcy and calmness. Lee Seung Gi has proven to all of us yet again how he is his own harshest critic and as a result, he is as close to being the perfect specimen of a human being as we can possibly find in this imperfect world we live in. πŸ˜‰

  15. SL Teh says:

    Happy 1st Anniversary Tryp!
    Thanks for your hard works & all the updates… it’s a MUST for me to visit your blog daily.

  16. Dimples says:

    Oh Tryp, CONGRATULATIONS! I am sooooo happy for you! What a lucky coincidence indeed! Billion thanks to you for all the Lee SeungGi updates you’ve been doing for us international fans. Wow! It’s already 1 year since you started on wordpress! Time really flies… I’ve been following you since from Tumblr because of uri SeungGi. I still remember when I suggested something about your wordpress blog’s header and when I was computing the number of days to your half (or million?) hits…and now you have almost 2 million hits in just a year! Awesome! Daebak!

    I am from the Philippines. I love all the songs because I can feel SeungGi’s emotions and he has great vocals in them (as always). All the songs are excellent but my faves right now is Aren’t We Friends or Because We’re Friends and Time for Love… maybe because they’re the first ones I’ve listened to from this album. πŸ™‚ (Actually, I have ordered the album already and am waiting for my copy to arrive! Oh, soo excited about it!. In my entire life, the only album I bought on line is SeungGi’s!) It would be great if I win in this lottery because receiving a gift from you would be awesome. πŸ™‚ Am I being selfish? I’m a fan of both SeungGi and Tryp, can anyone blame me? πŸ™‚ Well, I can pass along the one I ordered and keep the copy from Tryp! How I wish I’ll win but if not, it’s still ok since I’m sure to have the album and another Airen would be very happy. πŸ™‚

    Again, congratulations and keep it up! Take care and God bless you always. Have a great day!

    • Dimples says:

      I mean, “My faves right now ARE” (not is)! Sorry for that. I was contemplating on writing just one song and I forgot to edit. 😦 And I’m sorry for that long post. I am just excited. πŸ™‚

  17. rc says:

    Before anything else I would like to congratulate you on your first year. You do not know how you’ve made LSG fans happy and well informed of what is happening most specifically for those living abroad. Keep it up!
    I did pre-ordered from Yes Asia, but I do not mind having another copy.
    I truly like his songs, from the lyrics, tempo and melody. Now, we get to see a glimpse of the real Seung Gi. A man coming out of his shell brave enough to show that I’ve matured all these years and now this is the new me but still intact is the Seung Gi we’ve grown to love. The songs turned out so good because he gave his all… heart and soul.
    All the best.
    By the way, I am from the Philippines.

  18. spynsml says:

    I’m from Vietnam. When Tonight album was released, I had just came back from dental clinic and 2 teeth were pulled out I’m afraid that I have to bear the pain for few days but after watching Aren’t we friend MV I had to drink only an analgesic, his voice and his “beauty” are my pain-killers kkkk. My fav song is Anywhere ’cause it expresses exactly my feeling right now.

  19. Ay says:

    Happy Anniversary. I became a fan around April 2010 and found your blog earlier this year and you have given me so much pleasure and enjoyment since then.

    I am from Hong Kong. I like this album because this is the first album that SeungGi launches after I became a fan and I am glad I can fully participate in the excitement, anticipation that leads up to the launch.it is also the first time that SeungGi participates in the production of his own album and I like to celebrate this and show support by owning one. I also want to participate. In this ‘lottery’ because I think it is way to show support for your hard work.

    Thanks once again for your dedication .

  20. Hi I Am Allyssa Denise C Tulipat. I am from Manila, Philippines, I’m a fan of seunggi for 8 years (if im not mistaken) but i never had his CD / ALBUm once. 😦 So Maybe this Time I could have it. 😦 I really love seunggi’s songs. I want to have his Album.When I Listened into his Songs. I said to myself that i wish i could have one. Bu still I love Lee Seunggi i wish i could have this opportunity to make my dreams come true. I really wanna see seunggi.for thise 8 years had passed I only watched him on telenovelas and variety shows O really wanna see him in person i know many people wants too.But if it is not my Destiny to be picked,Its ok, there ks more chance to meet him in person. but please let me xD
    I really want to see him.:( I loved his songs but i never had even one of them 😦

  21. Hi, tryp96! How generous of you to celebrate your blog’s 1st anniversary by giving out something every single Airen would die to get our hands on – anything and everything that showcases the blessings, gifts and talents of in-a-class-of-his-own individual named Lee Seung Gi. πŸ˜‰

    I am from Singapore and even though I am a relatively new Airen because I have been a Lee Seung Gi fan for only 1 year now – because I have never had the motivation to watch any of Lee Seung Gi’s dramas before – but I am now so enamoured of the exceptional individual who is not only gifted with so many fine attributes known the world over (maturity beyond his years, purity, sincerity, humility, generosity, consideration, kindness, among others), but also truly talented since he is blessed with : a mesmerising speaking and singing voice that can melt even the coldest of hearts, so preciously and joyously showcased in each and every single song in all his albums; a natural and varied acting talent so memorably showcased in each of his dramas (I have watched all his dramas after I fell in love with his acting (and him?? hehe) in ‘My Girlfriend is a Gumiho’; a talent to be fully realised in being an Emcee but a talent that is slowly but surely being showcased in the variety shows he is involved in namely, 1N2D and Strong Heart so far.

    Having listened to all his songs from his latest album ‘Tonight’, I must say I have been spellbound by his amazingly-varied-layered-nuanced voice because EACH AND EVERY SINGLE SONG seems to showcase his voice so DIFFERENTLY AND VARIEDLY, so much so that, for at least half of the songs I thought I was listening to someone else singing. In fact, for songs such as ‘Tonight’, ‘Anywhere’ and ‘Slave’, if I had not known who the singer is or from which album the songs are taken from, I would be hard-pressed to identify Lee Seung Gi as the singer because he SOUNDS so UNLIKE himself as in his previous songs. Or maybe I am just struck speechless from his beautiful voice that I can’t think straight? Hehe… Whatever the case may be, I could also appreciate how the other songs faithfully and lovingly highlight Lee Seung Gi’s rich, deep, joyous, husky, emotive voice so unmistakenly and marvellously evident in all of his other songs. How enthralling it is to listen to a voice that can TRANSFORM, RE-TRANSFORM and RE-DEFINE itself so variedly, so beautifully, so unforgettably according to the rhythm, genre, mood and tempo of the different songs. A true, rare, gifted singer through and through – that is who Lee Seung Gi is to me – but I believe this album is perhaps THE album to finally SHOWCASE that true, rare and gifted voice IN ALL ITS GLORY. IT IS ABOUT TIME! πŸ˜‰

    As an Airen I cannot be happier!! Thank you Lee Seung Gi and the songwriters and producers of this album for delivering such joy, happiness, contentment and satisfaction, wrapped so lovingly in every precious note, in every treasured lyric, in each and every single part that makes up such a wonderful, wholesome, perfect WHOLE of an album, to be savoured and treasured by one and all for a long time to come – just like all his other albums. In fact, to me, Lee Seung Gi and his songs are not separate entities. They are ONE, A COMPLETE WHOLE – one cannot be without the other. And thus, just as Lee Seung Gi is a one-of-a-kind-unforgettably-unique individual, so are his songs. πŸ˜‰

    • Ooops!!! My deepest and sincerest apologies for forgetting to congratulate you on your blog’s anniversary! Heartiest congratulations, tryp96! I can’t thank you enough for setting up this blog and for your tireless effort in updating Lee Seung Gi fans on anything and everything about him! Thanks so much! Congratulations once again! Many happy returns!! πŸ˜‰

    • I forgot to add that Lee Seung Gi’s personal touch in writing the lyrics and part of the music for the song ‘Time For Love’ because he was feeling lonely while he was stuck in his hotel room with his manager when he was in Japan on a 1N2D tour is something that stood out for me.

      Lee Seung Gi’s frank admission that he was lonely and was yearning for someone to love just breaks my heart. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make his wish for someone to love come true. He is not afraid to admit that he is lonely and that he is just like the rest of us in wanting to love and be loved. But as a result of that depressing moment, he was able to overcome it by coming up with one of the most touching and heartfelt songs I have ever heard from him. In spite of feeling down and depressed, the song ‘Time For Love’ is catchy, uplifting and brimming with hope for a future love. And with the inclusion of a narration with Han Hyo Joo which is utterly cute, charming and funny, it is a song I do not tire of listening to repeatedly. πŸ˜‰

      Listening to Lee Seung Gi’s beautiful voice singing his songs in this album makes me feel happy, uplifted and all warm and fuzzy inside. And so, above all, I am appreciative of what Lee Seung Gi, along with the songwriters, lyricists and producers of this album have done for me – spread love, joy and happiness through the universal language – music – because even though I have never learnt Korean and cannot speak or read Korean, I have never felt a barrier to my ability to appreciate the beauty and perfection of Lee Seung Gi’s voice crooning his songs because understanding the lyrics become insignificant when I could FEEL such sincerity, warmth and love from just LISTENING to and SAVOURING the utter perfection of Lee Seung Gi’s mesmerising voice! πŸ˜‰

    Hello! CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 1ST YEAR by giving us our breakfast, lunchtime and even dinner by serving us HOT NEWS. (I totally love your blog.. well, everyone does..) I am from the PHILIPPINES.. well, i HEART Seunggi cos he gives me strength by listening to his music when Im in trouble, and in times when I’m lonely cos he’s voice is not that common like others, he moves people thru his songs and that includes ME.. He’s truly a UNIQUE person and NOW he has his 5th Album which is SUPER AWESOME! if I have 100 thumbs. I’d say “100 THUMBS UP” .. hahaha, and c’mon He’s so sexy huh?! right? hahahaha. well, Keep it up! and GOD BLESS US ALL! ^_^

  23. It is reading always happily.
    I am looking forward to it from now on.
    I am a Japanese.
    It is living in Osaka in Japan.
    My favorite music is the “Alone in Love”
    It is because this music is music made in Osaka which stayed by photography of 1N 2D.
    I have butterflies in my stomach.
    The “Alone in Love” is the music appropriate for Lee seungGi.

    I am sorry for poor English.
    Thank you.

  25. Hi, I’m from Malaysia. I like it so much because the music so nice to hear and the songs are really great with combination of a marvelous voice. My comment, whoever involved in this album are so creative, truly musician. Proud of him to brave enough produced this kind of music in the middle of popularity of pop/dance songs by idol bands that reach worldwide. Last but not least, hope his time will come someday, not only someone Korean proud of, but as someone world recognized as a successful Lee Seunggi in whatever he do. And for tryp, thanks for everything.

  26. Cheekie says:

    Hi Tryp,
    I am from Airen from U.S.
    First let me start off by congratulating you on your blog anniversary and express my gratitude for your effort in tirelessly giving us fellow international Airens with the latest updates, as well as spoiling us with so much SeungGi love.

    Now onto the 5th album… OMG… I was so excited after listening to Time For Love when it was first release, I did not think I could be anymore impressed so I jumped the gun and purchased the single from Itunes. However after yesterday, for the first time…I am so ecstatically happy to be proven wrong. SeungGi’s music is just like a reflection of himself… heartfelt, lovable and sincere.
    I can’t spazz enough as it is by far my favorite from all of SeungGi previous work. Not to say that his older albums weren’t amazing as well but I just feel like this 5th one puts SeungGi on another level as a singer vocal wise. There was not one song from it that I didn’t love. It was hard to choose a favorite as each song had a unique feel to it, evoking different mood of emotions. This new album will be on repeat in my car for a long while.
    Seunggiaaaaaaaa.. you are truly amazing.. I am one very happy fan.

  27. Jen says:

    Congratulations on your first year anniversary! I truly admire your dedication and very thankful for your hard work in translating and sharing all his news and activities. I’m from the Philippines and relatively a new fan of Lee Seung Gi. I love all the songs in the 5th album and it’s hard to pick just one favorite but if I had to, it’s probably “Alone in Love” because Seung-gi wrote it out of loneliness which is something I can relate to!

  28. sarah says:

    WOW!! CONGRATULATIONS Tryp..!! =) hmmm.. what can I say.. as I always say and maybe ur getting tired hearing this.. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your efforts and hardwork..! I or We really appreciate all the updates youΒ΄re sharing about our beloved SeungGi.. and thinking that all of us have our own busy life but still you manage to share your Love and fangirling to others..

    • Cheekie says:

      Hi Sarah,
      Just wanted to share with you the information I found when I was ordering my copy of the album from them yesterday. According to yesasia website ” Korean music products at YesAsia.com are sourced from distributors in Korea, and are reflected on the GAON Music Chart owned by the Korea Music Content Industry Association” .
      This information is also on their Q&A page http://www.yesasia.com/us/customer-support/0-0-0-hti.3846-en/question-answer.html

      • sarah says:

        Wow!! Cheekie thanks for the useful info!! πŸ™‚ i just want to make sure that we international Airens are hleping in boosting the sales of LSG fifth album..thanks again.. Im checking the site now.. I need to wait I think a month for me to get my hands on the album..since Im here in Spain..thats too far I think.. ^^ take care!

  29. choelyn lee says:

    Hi tryp! ^^ congratulations! Thank you for your patience in keeping us updated all the time.

    I’m from Malaysia. The reason that I like his 5th album is because he shows his talent as a singer again after 2 years of break. He can express his emotions and feelings well in all his songs. I love all his songs in the 5th album but the song that captures my heart the most is ‘Aren’t we friends?’, Seung Gi is capable of portraying a man who suffers and is in pain for falling in love with his friend through his powerful vocal. πŸ™‚ β™₯

  30. Congratulations on your first anniversary tryp! Thank you for all your time and effort spent on running this awesome blog for Airens like us! κ³ λ§™μŠ΅λ‹ˆλ‹€~

    I am from Singapore and it seems like there are many Singaporean Airens here too πŸ˜€ “Tonight” is a precious album, as it showcases Seung Gi’s amazing vocals and his ability to pull off different genres. My favourite track is 어디라도, which is really a light, breezy and jazzy song. Listening to it on a rainy afternoon… is pure bliss.

    I really wish I can catch his concert live some day.

    Thanks lots tryp! πŸ˜€

  31. airenyamyam says:

    Hi tryp! Happy Anniversary!!! If only I’d known I’ve made something special for you… πŸ™‚
    I wanted to thank you for updating us, all Airens, of all the happenings surrounding Seung Gi. Although I know your working and busy like a normal working person do, but you still have time to sneak through Korean news, translate it and deliver them to us international fans.. Thank You so much for that!! And if I may tell you, honestly, you are the reason why I became a dedicated Airen. I stumbled this blog months ago as I watched MGIAG and I didn’t get myself out of here. For months this has been my “sanctuary” as I may call it.. :)) And you haven’t failed me. Though I know that you are affiliated with other Airen Bloggers, I still find comfort here.. I wish you all the best and this blog for years to come!! I wish you good health always! πŸ™‚ In-spite of all the trouble and consequences you go through, just be strong always! Remember that I’m always here to support you. πŸ™‚

    *My Entry: πŸ˜€
    To begin with, I’m from the Philippines… Well I like the 5th Album because it showcased us the versatility of Lee Seung Gi. The album is packaged with all kinds of genre, not the same “Prince of Ballad” that we have been hearing in the past.. You can dance to it, rock on with it, relax to it and be in love after. This album has shown the many sides of Seung Gi. The kind that is like telling you that he can do ANYTHING, that he can SING ANY GENRE you give to him without any doubts. And despite all what happened regarding his variety shows, he still managed to release his album on this promised date. Also, Seung Gi did his charms again. After the long wait, he presented us, Airens his hands-on project. The well prepared and full of love album as he take part in writing some songs himself. Whew! :)) Sorry tryp that this is too long. I should stop now. Im afraid I’ll spam your comments section and let you read a novel-like comment..haha πŸ˜€
    This is mostly the reason why I like the album…

    And oh!! Remember to take a rest once in a while tryp. We dont mind if you take some time and unwind. I know this is your happiness, but you deserved a beauty rest.. πŸ™‚ Thanks tryp! All The Best! CHEERS!

  32. YingP says:

    Congratulation and Happy 1st anniversary , thanks for your hard work ..esp this period of time
    I’m Thai working in Lao , my job make me quite difficult and limited to follow Seunggi but your blog help me a lot …hihi
    I love the rhythm of “dating generation” is so cute and lyric is like seunggi himself want to tell to someone , and since hook or some source said this album will show Seunggi-bad guy unexcepted hook was released such a cute song.. (^^)
    Seunggi and Airen , fighting !!!

  33. Bearfan says:

    Hi Tryp, congratulations! I’m from Taiwan. I became a fan of Lee Seung Gi since this year and found your blog maybe in March or April. Thank you very much for all your effort and keep updating so that I can get the newest information of Lee Seung Gi as the first-hand. “Tonight” is the great album and I feel it is different with previously album since there are many different melody and arranged, especially Seung Gi have more powerful and skill show in this new album. Fifth album, Daebak~~

  34. Boo Jia Min says:

    Firstly, Happy Anniversary! πŸ™‚ (Well, this is important too right? Hehe~)

    I am Boo Jia Min from Singapore!

    The first song that I heard from THE 5TH ALBUM was “Time For Love”, and it is the SWEETEST song that I had ever heard in my 21+ years (and counting) of life!!! It definitely makes the waiting time until the release of THE 5TH ALBUM much more bearable!

    Then comes the attack of “Aren’t We Friends” MV!
    Every time I watch the MV, I cried! (**Note that there was no subs available yet initially but I still cried nevertheless!…, and I am not an emotional crybaby.)
    To me, “Aren’t We Friends” = Song with sad lyrics+Seung Gi oppa’s gorgeous, impeccable voice!

    Rest of the songs in THE 5TH ALBUM?

    1st of all Congrats for the 1 Year Anniversary, you’ve done a wonderful job..i am from Singapore. Pls continue this effort.You don’t know how many times i check your blog daily..It’s becoming like an addiction. You are the one that introduce me to LSG music.i am never one to listen to songs which lyrics that i dont understand. And i have fallen in love with his singing voice, even though i am waiting for the album i bought. i want another shot at the concert tickets. Pls be responsible for this obsession and give me a another chance. Aren’t we friends is my fav songs and after multiple listening yesterday and today and reading the lyrics and translation the song anywhere creeps in and then slave and then Just you and now basically the whole album is my fav.. Pls Keep Up the Great work tryp..

    Hello Tryp,
    Sincerely from the bottom of my heart… You are the BEST!!! After going through all the comments above… I am totally speechless. How I felt, what I am going to say… has been penned by the rest of the Airens. We shared the same feelings and gratitude for your hard work, superb dedication, priceless effort in making your blog a get-together for our love to one and only… Lee Seung Gi.
    Because of Lee Seung Gi, I took up Korean language.
    Because of Lee Seung Gi, I am making my first Korean trip in December for his concert.
    Because of Lee Seung Gi, I have to initially gave an excuse to my hubby that I am going Korea to shop some items for my daughter’s wedding…. Haha… but at the end, he knew my passion and gave me his blessings for this trip….Just imagine how crazy this old ahjumma can be??? Kekekeee…
    Well… I have placed a few copies of his 5th album, so please don’t count me in for the draw. It’s just that I get excited seeing all those comments and wanted to join in the Anniversary celebration. Alone in love is sooooo addictive… not because of Han Hyo Joo (*wink**wink**) but Lee Seung Gi sang it with all his heart and soul, especially when he sang the word “I love you”…gosh! To be honest, I have only heard at least 5 of the songs (Anywhere, Slave, I’m your Friend, A song to make you smile and Alone in love) and I truly love all of them. He is so smart in making this album a pleasing to listeners of all ages.

    My heartfelt appreciation to his parents for sharing Lee Seung Gi with the world.

    Once again.. thank you so much Tryp. Please continue to feed us with first-hand news about Lee Seung Gi. May you be showered loads of amazing health, as always!

    Big… Big… Hugs πŸ™‚
    Ahjumma from Singapore

    Dear Tryp, hello from Moscow, Russia! ^^

    My big-big congratulations with 1 year anniversary! There wasnt a day I havent visited your blog. I should say I started from your tumblr and ever since I’m not only Seung Gi’s but your loyal fan too. Thank you for everything you’re doing for us, Airens!

    About what I like in 5th album: I feel like this is more “Seung Gi’s” album, it’s more about him, not only because of that lyrics he wrote, I’m telling about whole feeling of album.

    Please, dont count me in contest, I’m going to purchase album myself with lots of other Seung Gi’s stuff ^^

  44. Osi says:

    Hi tryp!!! Omg one year seriously flew by! Congrats on the first anniversary of your blog! And really thank you so much for all your effort on making Seunggi’s news available to English speaking fans! ^^ I have been following your blog and Ann’s blog (lsgfan.wordpress.com) religiously since I became a fan of our um-chin-ah/heodang/Singer/Actor/MC Seunggi after Gumiho! πŸ˜€

    I love love loveeee the 5th album to bits and pieces! It’s so difficult for me to choose which is my favourite song, but I really really like Arent We Friends, Wherever, A Song That Makes You Smile, Love Time, and Just You!!! Omg that’s like half the album already. The fact that he wrote Love Time and Just You makes me love those two songs even more! It’s as if we can take a little peek into what’s going on in his head. Hehe. Really loveeeee his voice so so soooo much! And the 5th album holds a special place in my heart cause it’s the first time I’ve ever camped in front of my computer to wait for its release! Heh.

    Thank you for giving us this lottery draw chance! I can really die from happiness if I get the album (or omgggg even the concert tickets!!). Thank you so much again! Hehe, I’m the sunny island of Singapore!

    The 5th album is so AWESOME, even my hubby loves it! πŸ™‚

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TRYP!!!!!! *throws confetti everywhere*
    Thanks for always being such an awesome Airen and blogger of Seung Gi’s latest news tidbits for all of us int’l fans!
    I don’t always have a chance to reply but your blog is one of those on my daily-need-to-get-my-fix lists ^^ (as I finished typing that I realized that that last bit makes me sound like a crack addict in search of my next fix lols).
    Thanks so much for all the translations and hope you have a very happy year of blogging ahead!! and what awesomeness that Seung Gi decided to release his album on the day of your blog anni ^^

    What to say about Seung Gi’s album….I love his ballads but I’m glad that as a singer he’s branching out and trying new styles. I think it’s important to be a bit of a chameleon and change things up a bit. Seung Gi has always been seen as a serious ballad type guy with some glimpses of a rocker so its cool to see that there is no specific genre per say in his 5th album. I can’t decide what song I like the most yet..I think I’ll just have it on loop and see if one jumps out the pack haha.

    Cheers from Central Standard Time, USA (lolols) (^_^)v

    Hi Tryp! I’m Camille from the Philippines! I handle ilove1n2d tumblr (IDK if you’re familiar with it) and twitter and I started Airen PH! Hehe! I see a lot of my fellow Filipino Airens joining this contest as well. Yey! We’re on a hype right now with everything Lee Seung Gi has been doing lately! Such a busy man! Hahahaha! Happy anniversary to your blog!! Hands down for being able to maintain such site for Seung Gi! aah~ Airens’ life are easier with you!! Hehe! I love the title track You’re My Friend! Although I miss Seung Gi’s husky voice, that song is ear candy to my ears!! Oh gosh I would really love to have an album of Seung Gi but most of all, I really really want to watch his concert! I’ll be going to Korea on nov21-24. I was hoping Seung Gi’s hope concert would fall on any that date but no, it didn’t! 😦 Hahahaha so yeah.. if ever I win, to be honest, I would really make a way to extend or rebook or IDK just come back to Korea! Hahahahaha!!!

    Thank you Tryp! And SUPER DUPER thank you for all the updates! More power and God bless you a thousand fold! πŸ™‚

    – Camille
