16.05.11 SWC News Tidbits – Lee Seung Gi

A former SWC soldier posted on a blog that he received a KaTalk message from someone who’s now a Major serving in the same battalion as SeungGi. The Major said he did a long-distance march with SeungGi and even sent a proof shot. Unfortunately, they can’t share the photo in public.

The blog post is very long, and I really don’t have time to translate everything. But just to sum up, the march is 400km of mountain path in distance on the map, but the actual walking distance is over 500km. This is considered the most difficult training in SWC.

A dclsg fan shared something she read in the comments:

For SWC soldiers, the long-distance march is done on a voluntary basis! And the march in SWC is not simply marching for a long distance, it’s marching without sleeping at night! They rest for only 6 hours a day (2 hours at a time including breakfast, lunch and dinner), and march about 70km during the other 18 hours each day for an entire week!

Another fan said someone had asked at the Children’s Day event in Jeungpyeong and was told SeungGi had gone for training. LSJ also said in his interview on May 3 that SeungGi was in training. So it seems that the training was actually the long-distance march. And SeungGi did this right after 5 weeks of airborne training! I hope he will get some good rest on his leave!

    Oh gosh…that is so hard…running for just 3km or 5km is already tiring…if you don’t have good stamina, you won’t be able to complete this without being hurt. Seunggi’s making me admire and respect him more, day by day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Let’s keep sending Him best wishes and prayers so He completes everything and came back safe and healthy. This training is no joke, but I am confident He would soar and shine at the end of it. Blessings to our Sweetie, Seung Gi fighting!

    “For SWC soldiers, the long-distance march is done on a voluntary basis”. I don’t get this, so it means the SWC soldiers can choose not to do this march, or it means the SWC soldiers can walk freely without the commander’s guide during the march?

      It means the march is not mandatory. And SeungGi chose to participate even though he didn’t have to do it.

        Thanks ^^
        OMG! It’s even not the case for any higher ranking SWC soldiers to be able to do due to variety of hardness to death during the march but here Seung Gi’s just a recruit and he volunteered to do it and completed it in proudly. No wonder why both the SWC officials and SWC soldiers can’t stop giving him all the best praises like that. Seung Gi is such an amazing man!

    Uri Seung gi misses 1n2d challenges!! I just canot help to see him in this walk to that winter mountain hike in mt serak? (Is it?) climb with his hyungs. Where they suffered too much of cramps because of too much cold and of long distance hiking, stairs climbing and walking. He even comes back for Lee Seugun and help him to carry his bags because he struggled too much due to his knee operation. He is a good leader indeed!!
