On November 12th, JTBC’s new strain program “Sing Again” gave an interview with Lee Seung Gi.
Lee Seung Gi is the host of “Sing Again,” a “restart” program that gives unknown or forgotten singers another chance to take the stage and show off their skills in public. It is directed by the producers of “Sugar Man”.
Lee Seung Gi said, “I decided to appear on the show because I really liked the premise of the show. During the filming, I immersed myself in the stories of the participants. Can’t wait for the audience to get interested in these amazing singers and songs again. I’m really looking forward to the first episode. ”
Despite being the MC, he was asked what he would be like if he were a judge. He said, “I think my default would be, ‘Do I want to hear this person sing again?’ Auditions only give you a short time to decide, so I think most people will come to a decision through the first verse. ”
The jury consists of a high-level panel of Yoo Hee Yeol, Lee Sun Hee, Jeon In Kwon and Kim Ea Na, and a junior panel of Kyuhyun, Sunmi, Lee Hae Ri from Super Junior and Song Mino from WINNER. When asked who he would be most like as a judge, Lee Seung Gi replied, “I learned music from Lee Sun Hee, so I think she and I would be most similar in our musical standards. From the junior judging panel, Kyuhyun and I have similar tastes in the type of music we follow, so I think we would have similar standards. ”
To help attendees, Lee Seung Gi spoke about his own struggles after his debut. After the great success of his debut track “Because you are my wife” he fell into a slump due to the pressure of his newfound fame. He said, “I felt the limits of my talent to the point that I wondered if I could even be a celebrity. The higher my success, the worse my break-in got.”
He continued, “The period of happiness you experience while making music is fairly short. You work your way to the bone in the recording studio, you agonize over how to express the emotions of the song, you are desperate when the song isn’t advertised well. You endure it all and then experience joy for a single moment. Participants will all have a tough time, but I hope they will experience that moment of sweetness during Sing Again. ”
“Sing Again” premieres on November 16 at 10:30 pm KST.
