The maknae member of popular KBS Happy Sunday program “1N2D”, Lee Seung Gi has recently confirmed his participation for MBC’s new drama, “Iljimae” which has generated interest among netizens.
“Iljimae” will be broadcasted on MBC television in the latter part of 2008 and with his confirmation set in stone, his continued participation in “1N2D” is now in limbo. Not to be confused with SBS “Iljimae” currently airing and starring Lee Jun Ki, it is based on the original comic book unlike Lee Jun Ki’s one which is based on a different storyline. They just have the same name.
It’s known that the filming for “1N2D” is very compact and tight, and once the mission is confirmed for that episode, the six hosts have to devote their fullest attention to it while recording. With that in mind, netizens are discussing about the eventuality of Seung Gi leaving the show in the near future. The “1N2D” PD when interviewed, expressed that nothing has been discussed yet and they hope that they can continue working on in future.
Meanwhile, someone related to Lee Seung Gi expressed that they prefer not to comment since the filming dates for “Iljimae” hasn’t been fixed yet. They will reveal more news once the filming dates are confirmed and adjusting of his schedules. But there’s no discussion now on Lee Seung Gi’s continued participation in “1N2D”. It will be a big loss to lose their idol star.
