At the movie “GoongHap” wrap party held at a restaurant in Gangnam on January 11, Lee Seung Gi said, “I’ll be going to the military in March, so now every day is extremely precious. It’s a place every physically healthy Korean male has to go, so I’ll go with a light heart and come back safe and sound.”
Listening with bated breath, over 150 staff members applauded all at once, while several female staff members chanted, “don’t go, don’t go.”
It was 2 days before his birthday, and he received a surprise cake from the production team. A surprised Lee Seung Gi said, “Thank you so, so much. While filming the movie GoongHap, there wasn’t a single day that I wasn’t happy. Looking you in the eyes one by one like this, I think I’ll burst into tears any moment now. I sincerely thank you,” while he lighted up the candles and turned off the lights.
His co-star Shim Eun Kyung also prepared rice cake as a birthday gift. It was ordered directly from Gangneung where her maternal grandmother lives and delivered warm on the day of the party.
Shim Eun Kyung said, “While filming with SeungGi oppa, I grew very attached to him, so I’m extremely sad that he’s enlisting. But I’m hoping for a day that we’ll meet again with a good opportunity,” and moved Lee Seung Gi.
Lee Seung Gi then raised a laugh by saying, “When I came to the restaurant today, the female staff were so pretty that I didn’t recognize them and I almost asked them for their phone numbers. The movie is scheduled to open this fall, and I’ll probably be hearing about the movie’s box-office success while I’m on guard-duty.”
