On the day where he received his degree and became an university graduate, singer Lee Seung Gi (22) also took the chance to reveal to the media his plans for the year.

The graduation ceremony to award students with their degrees took place this morning at 11am at the main hall of Dongguk University. After the conclusion of the ceremony, Lee Seung Gi revealed to the waiting media, “I will soon be appearing in a drama.”

20090220_seunggi_1The words straight from Seung Gi‘s mouth has more or less confirmed that he is indeed taking on the leading role for SBS weekend drama Life is Beautiful, starring opposite actress Han Hyo Joo. The premiere will be on 18th April and is the follow-up drama to Family’s Honor. This will be his comeback drama in 3 years after his last drama, Famous Princesses in 2006. Seung Gi also has plans to release an album this year and hopes that fans will continue to support him. No mention was made about his variety show 1 Night 2 Days so it’s likely that he will continue to remain on the show while filming his drama.

Lee Seung Gi had enrolled in 2005 in Dongguk University, majoring in International Trade and Commerce. Unlike other celebrity stars, he took the normal path of graduating in 4 years, handling both his entertainment career and studies simulataneously and without suspending his studies even once. Seung Gi was also awarded the excellence PR award on this day.

Lee Seung Gi Max CF

The concept for this commercial was titled, “You know it’s a delicious tasting beer just by looking at the color”. The commercial sees them decide between Max Beer and another competing brand just by looking at their colors, with Sun Ah picking the vibrant looking color of the earlier. The graduates also did a dorky looking beer dance (which was cute and funny btw) without any expressions on their faces through this short commercial.

Although Seung Gi and Sun Ah only met for the first time while filming for this commercial, but their natural couple acting showcased their professionalism. It was reported that they apparently got along so well that after filming had ended, their relationship had already progressed to the stage where they could have become sworn siblings!

Seung Gi‘s destiny with older women continues to rage even now. Probably just a coincidence. Both Kim Sun Ah and Lee Seung Gi who had just graduated from their respective universities last week had filmed a commercial for Max Beer recently. Jang Dong Gun been in the last 6 Max Beer commercials plus Crown J who appeared in one with him. But for the 7th commercial, Sun Ah and Seung Gi was picked instead.

20090218_leeseunggi_605

Lee Seung Gi and Han Hyo Joo have been confirmed for SBS weekend drama Life is Beautiful which will replace Family’s Honor. According to a SBS staff, “Lee Seung Gi and Han Hyo Joo will play the leading roles for the follow-up drama to Family’s Honor, Life is Beautiful. Besides them, others that have been confirmed include Kim Mi Sook, Moon Chae Won and Bae Soo Bin. Family’s Honor will end on 18th April and we have some details that needs to be ironed out. But we will confirm all the cast members at the end of this month or early March.” Although no contract has been inked yet, the production company are confident that Lee Seung Gi will be in the show barring some minor details that need to be ironed out. As for Lee Seung Gi‘s management, they also confirmed that despite the non-agreement as yet, they are actively pursuing for Lee Seung Gi‘s involvement and the possibility of it happening is high. Life is Beautiful is drama focusing on the love and trials of the 20 year old generation. If Lee Seung Gi does take the role, it will be almost 3 years since his last drama for KBS2TV, daily drama Famous Princesses in 2006. He was supposed to play Iljimae in MBC’s Return of Iljimae and had even trained hard for the role. But he decided against it in the end and chose to stay on KBS 1 Night 2 Days as it was impossible to accomodate both at the same time.
