Lee Seung-gi (Hangul이승기; hanja李昇基; born January 13, 1987) is a South Korean singer, actor, host and entertainer. He is one of the most sought after male stars in his 20s, known for his upright, positive image and penchant for success.[1] He is a 19th-generation descendant of Prince Yangnyeong, who was the eldest son of King Taejong of Joseon.[citation needed]

Known as the Ballad Prince,[2][3][4] Lee has had numerous hit songs such as "Because You're My Woman", "Will You Marry Me", and "Return". Lee garnered further success as an actor with leading roles in popular dramas such as Brilliant Legacy, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox, and Gu Family Book.

In the variety show field, Lee is well known as a member of the first season of weekend variety show 1 Night 2 Days from November 2007 to February 2012, and the MC of talk show Strong Heart from October 2009 to April 2012. His achievements and major success in these three fields as a singer, actor and show host, earned him the title of "Triple Crown Prince" or "Triple Threat" entertainer.[5]


2004–present: Music[edit]

Scouted by singer Lee Sun-hee, Lee Seung-gi trained for 2 years before debuting on 5 June 2004 at the age of 17. Because You're My Girl, his debut song from his first album The Dream Of A Moth, was a popular ballad which created a "liking older women" syndrome in South Korea. With this song, he won the "Best Newcomer" award in various music awards ceremonies in 2004 such as the M.net KM Music Festival and Seoul Music Awards. In 2007, he also won the "Best Male Solo Artist" award[6] in the M.net KM Music Festival with his song White Lie from his third album Story Of Separation.

Lee released a digital single Will You Marry Me in 2009, which became a big hit in South Korea although there was no official promotion. With this single, he received the "Digital Single Bonsang" award[7] in the 24th Golden Disk Awards. In 2010, he recorded a duet version of his 2007 song Smile Boy with South Korean figure skater Kim Yuna, and the song was the official 2010 FIFA World Cup commercial song[8][9] in South Korea. He also received the "Digital Single Bonsang" award[10] for the second consecutive time in the 25th Golden Disk Awards with his song Love Taught Me To Drink even though it was not promoted actively.

On 6 March 2012, Lee officially debuted in Japan by releasing his First Japan Debut Album Time for Love (also translated as Alone in Love, Generation of Love, and Era of Love) and a single of the same title which was ranked number one on Oricon Daily Chart.[11][12][13] He held a concert at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, on 1 June 2012, three months after his debut and became the fastest singer who holds a concert there after debuting.[14]

On 22 November 2012, Lee released a mini-album (#5.5), Forest. The title song Return (also translated as Looking Back) became number one in music charts such as Instiz,[15] Gaon Chart, and Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for weeks. It was number one for the month of December on Gaon Chart.[16] It also set a record for being number one for six consecutive weeks on Billboard's Korea K-Pop Hot 100.[17][18]

On 10 June 2015, Lee made his music comeback with his sixth album And... after a hiatus of two years and seven months.[19] The album's title track And Goodbye reached number one on the real-time music charts but due to irreparable damage to the film footage, the song's music video was released at only one minute long.[20] Hook Entertainment apologized to fans for the incident, explaining that there wasn't enough time to re-shoot the footage before the album's release.[21]

On 21 January 2016 according to his agency Hook Entertainment Lee will be enlisting on February 1. As a gift to fans, Lee also released a new track on January 21 at noon, “I Am Going To The Military".[22] In fact, his new song "I'm Going to The Military" has achieved an all-kill on real time music charts. His single hit number one on all main 8 music charts as soon as it was released. As of January 22, 7am KST, the song is still at the top of 6 charts, which are Mnet, Bugs, Olleh Music, Soribada, Naver and Monkey3.[23]

On 3 March 2016, Lee Seung Gi’s song “Meet Someone Like Me” was released. The singer-actor is currently fulfilling his mandatory military service. This new single is the last song that Lee recorded before joining the Army, and was produced by Psy [24]

2006–present: Film and television[edit]

In 2005, Lee guest-starred in MBC's sitcom Nonstop 5. He then officially debuted as an actor in KBS's 2006 weekend drama The Infamous Chil Sisters. In 2008, he was offered the lead role in MBC's historical drama The Return of Iljimae, but turned down the offer due to his tight schedule.

He was then cast as the main male character in SBS's weekend drama Brilliant Legacy in 2009, starring with Korean actresses Han Hyo-joo and Moon Chae-won. The drama maintained its top spot in viewer ratings for ten consecutive weeks and ended on 26 July 2009 with its 28th episode attaining a high viewer rating of 47.1%.[25] The huge success boosted Lee's popularity as an actor both locally and internationally. With this drama, he received the "Excellence in Acting" award, the "Top 10 Stars" award and the "Best Couple" award with Han Hyo-joo in the 2009 SBS Drama Awards.[26]

His performance in 2010 SBS's Wednesday-Thursday drama My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox earned him his second "Excellence in Acting" award, "Top 10 Stars" award and "Best Couple" award with his co-star Shin Min-a in the 2010 SBS Drama Awards.[27]

In 2012, Lee starred in MBC's Wednesday-Thursday drama The King 2 Hearts alongside actress Ha Ji-won.
