CF Filming & Music Recording Completed Ahead of Time
Even Movie ‘GoongHap’ Poster Filming Wrapped Up
Singer Lee Seung Gi carried out an elaborate strategy to minimize his activity gap while serving in the military. From movie and music release to advertising for business(es), he was prepared to not miss a single thing.
Entering Nonsan Army Training Center on February 1 to start his 2-year military service, Lee Seung Gi kept busy until the day before his enlistment.
Four days before enlistment, Lee Seung Gi turned up at a studio in Seoul for movie GoongHap’s poster shoot. Korean films usually do poster shoots 1 or 2 months before opening, but considering Lee Seung Gi’s enlistment schedule, GoongHap production team carried out the shoot 4~5 months early. His costars Shim Eun Kyung and Kim Sang Kyung etc. readily adjusted their schedules; getting together after a long time, they cheered for Lee Seung Gi to complete his military service safely and return.
Around the same time, Lee Seung Gi also filmed CF(s) for KB Bank. He’s currently active as the exclusive model along with Kim Yuna. It became known that he appeared in the new ad with the buzz cut he got for his enlistment. Enlisting stars often film CFs in advance, but it’s rare for anyone to appear with a buzz-cut hairstyle like Lee Seung Gi did.
And the day before enlistment, Lee Seung Gi even finished recording a new song he received from Psy. The song title is not revealed yet, but the song is planned for release in mid-February.
