Singer Lee Seung-gi, who enjoyed great popularity with his innocent and somewhat careless character on the entertainment program "1 Night 2 Days," is establishing himself as a lead actor on TV drama "Brilliant Legacy." Lee plays the role of arrogant son of a rich family.
The viewer rating for both "1 Night 2 Days" on Sundays and "Brilliant Legacy" on Saturdays and Sundays are spectacular, ranging around 30 percent. "It's not me but other people on both programs who make such high rating possible," Lee says.
Despite a busy schedule that allows him to sleep just three hours a day, Lee released a new song on June 18 and plans to release a new album in autumn.
Lee is probably at the top of his career as singer, actor and entertainer. When asked which of the three professions he would choose if he had to, he said, "I don't see those as three different things. To me they are one. They are all branches that came out from a big stem called entertainment. I won't let any chances slip away. If they come to me, I'll grab them all."
