On 26th of October, Lee Seung Gi appeared for his 5th album release event called â€˜Lee Seung Giâ€™s Five Minute Music Broadcastâ€˜, whereÂ he talked about the future of his career.
When asked about his plans for the army, he revealed, â€œTime-wise, nothingâ€™s finalized yet, but Iâ€™m planning to enlist in the beginning of next year. I originally wanted to enlist within this year, but I realized that I wouldnâ€™t be able to do anything so I decided to wait for good projects.â€
He continued, â€œMy seniors are all serving in the army, and times have changed where itâ€™s better to just quietly enlist. Iâ€™m not planning on waiting too long to enlist, however. There is a time period that I myself have decided but you never know with the future, so Iâ€™d rather not talk about it now. Just know that it wonâ€™t be too late. Iâ€™d rather go when Iâ€™m young and healthy.â€
Lee Seung Gi was also asked about having to fill in for MCÂ Kang Ho Dong, to which he replied, â€œHis position is not something that can be filled, and even if I were to try, it would be impossible. Since heâ€™s my senior, I learned many things over his shoulder. Although he never directed me, I learned so much over the years Iâ€™ve spent with him.â€
He continued, â€œInstead of trying to fill his shoes, Iâ€™d rather just do what I can on my own.â€
While on the topic of variety shows, he stated, â€œI think that variety shows are all about teamwork, which goes the same for â€˜1 Night 2 Daysâ€˜ and â€˜Strong Heartâ€˜. Iâ€™m thankful to all of my seniors who helped me out.â€
His release event will be broadcast through Melon TV and YouTube on November 1st.
