I’m only translating all the quotes. 😛
Lee Seung Gi explained why he chose ‘The Ordinary Man’ as the pre-release track for his new album: “Everyone who has gone through a breakup considers their experience to be special, but in reality, don’t all breakups have a similar process and tide of emotions? That’s why I think everyone can live well again after a difficult experience. Nevertheless, the moment of breaking up can be too difficult to bear. This song embodies my hope that at such times, like the many breakups time has healed, my breakup would also be an ordinary breakup, and I would also be just an ordinary, average, and common man.”
Yoon Jong Shin shared a behind-the-scene story, “I think Lee Seung Gi is a versatile singer who not only has a very powerful voice, but also excels at expressing the narrative in the lyrics with his own exquisite interpretation. I almost gave up on this project because it overlapped with some personal troubles, but I was able to make it to the end because of the faith I have in Singer Lee Seung Gi.”
Hook said, “We are very grateful that Korea’s best artists of various genres readily participated in Lee Seung Gi’s 7th studio album. We are convinced that the brilliant ensemble of Lee Seung Gi and Yoon Jong Shin, who are starting the album off, will give listeners high musical satisfaction. Please look forward to the performance of ‘Singer Lee Seung Gi’ who’s returning to his original career after 5 years & fulfilling fans’ expectations with deeper emotions.”
