2021 will be the year to bring upon new beginnings, new opportunities, and a new collaboration featuring Lee Min Ho and Lee Seung Gi.
Since October 2020, Lee Min Ho has been sharing short films he produced and directed on his own YouTube channel. With this new passion and hobby, the Boys Over Flowers actor has also decided to expand his efforts into collaborating with other friends and artistes.
In a short clip titled “LeeSeunggi X LeeMinho EP.1”, the Korean actor teased his upcoming collaboration project with Lee Seung Gi, who has been working on his seventh studio album, The Project.
In the longer film, EP.2, the two actors met up at a restaurant to discuss about their upcoming collaboration. Seung Gi still hasn’t figured out if he wants to make a music video or short film with Min Ho, but the two Hallyu stars are sure about one thing—this project has to represent a part of Seung Gi’s life.
Having spent half of his life as a famous idol, Seung Gi—who is now 34 years old—is struggling to manage his new identity as a veteran artiste in showbiz.
“I want to be able to hit the gas and brake,” he said. “I think I’m really in that middle period right now […] trying to figure out what myself as Lee Seung Gi really wants. When I lose all the fame, can I still be happy? I’m thinking if everything starts to fade little by little, what is going to make me happy?”
Seung Gi explained that while he was still in his 20s, he found happiness through work. Success in his career equated to happiness, but he also understands that fame does not last forever, and Seung Gi is now on the search for what can keep his life fulfilling and content.
Min Ho also agreed. Sharing that he wasn’t able to do what he wanted in his 20s, he said, “Trying to keep everything and do well was not the real me at all. That was just me who was very unstable. Shouldering responsibility and not showing how hard it is, brainwashing myself to think I had to do all those things, wasn’t even the real me.”
If there was one thing that Seung Gi could do right now, it would be travelling. “I just want to get away from even myself. I never know who is going to call, and I’m always under constant stress. For once, I just want to break out the mold of Lee Seung Gi.”
