Lee Seung Gi Hope Concert 2011


Looking back at my blog post in January 2011 about how I started to like Lee Seung Gi, who would have thought that I could watch him live this soon!!

Lee Seung Gi is an actor, ads model, reality show host, MC, and singer. Really multi-talented, right?

Seung Gi's current reality show is 1 Night 2 Days (1N2D). The show is about going on a 1 night 2 days trip traveling around Korea, introduce many places and cultural things in a funny way. Lee Seung Gi + Traveling + Funny = the most favorite Korean reality show for me. In this show I can see the real character of Seung Gi. He is a truly charming person, smart, handsome.... okay stop, this list will never end. I also like the other 1N2D members and ex-members. Too bad the show will end on February 2012.

Seung Gi is also hosting a talk show Strong Heart. This one is kinda boring.

Seung Gi's famous dramas are Brilliant Legacy in 2009 and My Girlfriend is Gumiho in 2010 (his drama from where I start to like him). He's probably going to drama again next year.

Seung Gi has been the most favorite model for goods commercials and advertisements. There are too many until I cannot list them. I can find his ads easily in the subways and supermarkets. He's everywhere.

Seung Gi just released his fifth album Tonight in the end of October this year. Hook Entertainment promoted it really well. I am impressed with their 4 episodes of 5 Minutes Broadcasts for this new album. My favorite is Episode 3, showing Tonight song itself.


His annual concerts were held last weekend, Saturday and Sunday (10 and 11 December 2011), in Olympic Park, Seoul, South Korea. I came to the Saturday concert. I arrived 1 hour before the show, didn't care too much with the official merchandise. At that time there was also CNBlue concert going on in the neighbor hall, I almost went to the wrong ticket booth. Not like K-Pop concerts with full of teenagers, Lee Seung Gi concert audience was varied from kids to ahjumma/ahjussi.

Uniquely Singapore

Recently I have been involved in Toastmaster. It is an international organization that helps us improve our English, public speaking, communication and leadership skills. There are about 13.000 clubs in the world, including 33 clubs in Korea. If you want to join and to know more about Sinchon Toastmaster Club, you can contact me.

OK, that's not the point of my posting now (but yeah, you can contact me!). Last week in Toastmaster meeting, I did my second speech project about how to Organize Your Speech. I wanted to present something I know and experience very well. I gave a speech about 3 unique things of Singapore.

FINES


As you know, Singapore is famous for being one of the cleanest countries in the world, thanks to its government's strict regulations. In the buildings, parks and public transportations, you can find many signs telling people what they shouldn't do and how much they would be fined if they broke the rules. Some rules are common and can be found too in other countries, but some... are silly. For example:
