WTF, Disbelief, Happiness, Euphoria. These are emotions and expressions I felt and wore when i found out Lee Seung Gi was reported and confirmed to be dating YoonA. I don’t think I can properly describe what I felt when i read the news, but I can certainly try.
A few odd years ago, Seung Gi had started MCing Strong Heart alongside with Kang Ho Dong and YoonA was one it’s many first guests. Seung Gi had already chosen YoonA as his ideal type on Ideal Women World Cup on KBS. So naturally, the Strong Heart PD, Ho Dong, and guests started to tease them. Each time YoonA went on Strong Heart, the pair was teased and it was kinda of obvious they both had an attraction for one another, whether it was looks, personality, admiration.
Why I’m a fan of both
I have been a Lee Seung Gi fan since about 2008. I look up to him like an idol, a mentor, a hyung. I’ve admired his voice, his talent, his work ethic and brain. Consequently I’ve been a SNSD fan since 2009, loving all 9 girls kinda equally though there are inevitable biases. YoonA is on the top of the list for her to die for looks and well rounded talent. Plus I’ve watched all of the SNSD classics like Girls’ Generation Goes to School, Manwon Happiness, Hello Baby etc, so I fell in love with YoonA’s quirkyness and cuteness. So when Strong Heart came a round and basically played off their mutual agreement of ideal types, I thought to myself, ‘Man, I hope they get together somehow. I don’t care if it a drama, movie, We Got Married, a dating program, variety show, I hope Seung Gi hyung can somehow woo YoonA and they can get together’.
Cause let’s be honest here, I love SNSD, but unless I somehow break into the entertainment world and meet and become close with Kpop stars, there is almost zero chance of me landing any of the 9 beautiful ladies (if Taeyeon wants to give me a call, my number is 6** *** ****, i’m a really nice and sweet guy I swear). So you hope for the next best thing. You hope that your mancrush grows a pair and sweeps off YoonA’s feet and they live happily ever after.
An Open Letter to Sone
SNSD fans, as a Lee Seung Gi fanboy, I can tell you after watching EVERY single 1N2D season 1 episodes, Noona Over Flowers, variety show appearances, X-Man, MCing, concerts, interviews, fan accounts… This guy is the perfect gentleman, very well mannered, loyal, hardworking, filial, a person that would most likely still succeed outside of the entertainment business (he has a a Bachelors with high honors in Economics and is studying his masters), really rich, a super dork hence the nickname ‘heodang’ and just a talented person. YoonA is in good hands.
An Open Letter to Airen
Lee Seung Gi fans, as a SNSD fanboy, I can assure you that after watching countless variety shows starting from their debut and until now, watching their BTS’, reading their interviews and fan accounts, YoonA is sweet, kind, loving, cares for her loved ones, cute, quirky, a lovable dork, sexy, loyal, confident, hardworking and very talented. You don’t have to worry, she’s the perfect girl for Seung Gi.
Maybe that’s why i’m practically over the moon, I paired two people and they actually reciprocate their feelings. You’re happy when two people that you care, love and admire get together. That’s what I am now. Happy. But still kinda envious. Lucky bastard. Man I need to find a girl.
