[Eng] Lee Seung Gi HIM Magazine Interview Excerpt

What did you do when you had your first military leave?

The very first place I went to was a hospital. In SWC, the soldiers are required to receive basic airborne training. Usually we can go on a leave right after the basic airborne training, but at the time, my unit was in the middle of a big one-month-long training. After I finished my airborne training, there were still about 10 days left in the training (at my unit). I really wanted to participate in that training, so as soon as I finished (the airborne training), I postponed my leave and returned to my unit. I went to the high mountain training ground with the same gears I had taken to the airborne training. Actually, my body was throbbing with pain at that time, but I didn’t think it would be a big problem. I thought, “Because airborne training used muscles that aren’t normally used, of course it would hurt.” The mountain training I participated in while enduring the throbbing pain was also tough. Usually, when going to a mountaintop, the maknae carries the rice and drinking water for the team. I was 31 years old, but as the maknae [lowest in rank in this case], I climbed mountains carrying that load. It was hard, but I felt proud, and enjoyed it. Then after all the training ended and we were back at our base, pain came on in my side when I was getting organized. I thought of it lightly, “Ah! Even my side gets cramps too.” But later, it got so painful that I couldn’t even bend my body. So I went to a hospital, and was told that my rib(s) was fractured. I really didn’t know. That’s how a hospital became my first destination in my first leave.

    I’m so proud of Seung Gi’s achievement in the army. He endured a lot without complaining and even enjoyed every bit of it. Hence, like everyone else, my heart broke knowing he had fractured ribs. I sure hope that he’s completely healed now. Such a hardworking guy he’s always been! Seung Gi-yaa~~ hang in there! Just a few more weeks and we’ll celebrate your discharge and comeback. We’re so proud of you. Fighting!
