Through the Jipsabu broadcast 3 days ago, the video of me singing “Forbidden Love” (original singer: Kim Kyung Ho sunbaenim) became a hot topic. I was very surprised but really happy that so many people love me as a singer.
As a matter of fact, when selecting songs, I thought about singing a different song at first. Because we had to get prepared very suddenly, I wanted to choose a song that I could pull off even in that condition. But the members and production staff brought up the idea of how it would be if I were to sing “Forbidden Love” from the Lee Seung Gi Singing List from our get-togethers in the past. At first, I was against it. Because that was not a song that I could leisurely sing while doing a broadcast…
After much deliberation, I decided (on Forbidden Love) in order to show a great performance… However, it was difficult to focus on the broadcast because I was feeling very burdened and nervous the whole time until I went on the stage.
Nevertheless, when I heard that “Today’s stage was largely contributed by this spicy chicken,” I ate it as if I was eating balloon flower root [a medicinal herb, not very tasty but benefits the throat].
Having had such a hard time completing the performance, the response after broadcast was far more than expected, so I realized once again…
That it is difficult to achieve satisfactory results without pain.
It’s indeed “No Pain, No Gain!”
