Lee Seung Gi’s last ep of Strong Heart to be ‘YG special’
On the 22nd, a related person from SBS said, “On the 15th March, at Strong Heart, ‘YG special’ where all the singers from YG entertainment will appear will be filmed. The production team are having meetings about various concepts such as Psy being the MC.”
March 15th is the date of the last recording of the current MC of Strong Heart, Lee Seung Gi. Lee Seung Gi is leaving the show in order to concentrate on his acting and singing activities.
SBS has been generous to YG artists. In 2010, when 2NE1 made a comeback on Inkigayo, for the first time ever, they performed 3 songs. In addition, in February 2011 when Big Bang made a comeback, a program called ‘Big Bang Show’ was made. Yang Hyun Suk is also active on SBS Kpop Star at the moment.
Jisook has revealed the identity of her ex- boyfriend.
Jisook, a member of Rainbow has revealed who her ex-boyfriend was when she was filmming ‘Strong Heart‘ for SBS TV.
She said, ‘when I was a trainee,I met my ex- boyfriend who is now a famous member of an idol group. When we were trainees, this boyfriend gave me a lot of help and even for now, we are still good friends.’
The MC Lee Seung Gi asked ,‘ is he from a 5-member group? ‘ She answered ambiguously, ‘ 5- member groups or groups have less than 5 people but the 5-member groups are included.’
On the November 15th episode of ‘Strong Heart‘, SNSD‘s Yoona praised the INFINITE members by saying, “We are cheering for INFINITE. They’re extremely synchronized when it comes to their dance, and they work really hard“.
Fellow member Tiffany added, “When we watch them dance, it reminds us of ourselves when we first debuted“, as she smiled thinking about the past.
MC Lee Seung Gi then bluntly asked Tiffany which member had left the biggest impression on her, causing everyone to jeer at his obvious attempts to create a love line as INFINITE’s maknae Sunjong anticipated her answer. To his dismay, however, Tiffany honestly admitted with a shy smile, that is was “Hoya“.
Sungjong was quick to express his hurt feelings by stating, “Oh, maybe Hoya should’ve come out today instead…“, continuing the laughs on set.
On the continuation of the 100th episode of ‘Strong Heart‘, SNSD‘s Jessica was asked which celebrity she wanted to receive a call from.
Jessica truthfully responded she wanted to meet none other than actor Daniel Henney. She added that she has never meet him in person but that SNSD had received an invitation for a movie premiere before.
She also sadly replied that she didn’t know his contact information and even though some of the SNSD members are close with Daniel Hanney’s manager they won’t connect them.
Maybe Daniel Henney will watch this episode of ‘Strong Heart’ and make Jessica’s dreams come true by contacting her.
Super Junior‘s Leeteuk revealed on the November 1st episode of Strong Heart that he once had a crush on label-mate Dana.
He shared, “She was so thoughtful and considerate. I honestly, really liked her. She was the first person I liked after joining SM Entertainment.”
He further explained, “So, being a man, I told her exactly how I felt and told her that I wanted to date her. I thought because I had confessed my feelings for her, we were now an official couple. At least, thats what I thought… The next day I get to the office and people kept telling me that Dana had a boyfriend. I remember thinking to myself, ‘but I’m her boyfriend’… The management staff heard about what had happened, and they told me not to come to the office anymore. I had just started, and Dana was already preparing for her debut. I had to write five pages explaining my actions to the agency, promising to channel that drive and passion towards practicing to become the best.”
After he was done sharing his story, Dana surprised by his remarks, commented, “I didn’t know they told him to leave or that he had to write a five page letter of apology.”
