There have been a lot of press articles on SeungGi’s “Courage” promo video for the GFF, but this one is a little more special. It’s from The Korea Defense Daily, so there’s more insider info.😆
PFC Lee Seung Gi version, ‘Please Show Us Your Courage’ is a video produced for people in their 20s who are weary of studying and looking for employment. It’s planned to instill courage and self-confidence of ‘I can do it!’ through the experience of conquering obstacles like mock tower when the young generation, who might be losing self-confidence in the fiercely competitive society, visits the Ground Forces Festival. That’s why the (promo) video’s background is also a guerrilla training ground’s mock tower.
Appearing after Mark Twain’s famous quote ‘Courage is … mastery of fear,’ PFC Lee climbs up an 11-meter tall mock tower. After shouting ‘Jump preparations done!’ he flings his body into the air with all his strength. His tanned dark skin, determined gaze, and neat posture even in the air all give off a Real Man’s scent.
There are a lot of anecdotes behind this well-made video. Filming of the Courage version relied on natural light, and even though PFC Lee jumped over 10 times from the mock tower, he never lost his smile, and he showed off ‘the composure of a strong Special Forces Man.’
