Of all the articles I’ve written in Chingu To The World, the Lee Seung Gi’s Vagabond Voyage in Manila was extra special to me. So, I wanna share it here in my blog.
(first published on October 13, 2019 at Chingu To The World)
Amidst the heavy rains, nothing can stop the Filipino Airens to meet and greet the one and only “Triple Threat Entertainer” Lee Seung Gi. ‘Vagabond Voyage in Manila’ fan meeting tour of Lee Seung Gi held at the New Frontier Theater last October 12, 2019 could only be considered as success.
Personally, I have been waiting for that moment to finally see my Ultimate oppa. It felt so surreal and the Fan Meeting was totally satisfying and really a night to remember. Here are some of my favorite moments from Lee Seung Gi’s fan meeting:
HE SHOWCASE HIS SINGING ABILITIES
Lee Seung Gi opened the stage with his song “Because You’re My Woman”
“Return” (I love the melody of this song.)
“Delete” (“Thank you for giving me good memories… Personally, I’m the most nervous right now. All the love I received tonight I’ll put into this one song.” – LSG)
“Smile Boy” (This song always put me in a good vibe. One of my faves.)
“Let’s Take On a Vacation” (Perfect song to end the fan meeting.)
HE’S ALWAYS GAME IN EVERYTHING
Lee Seung Gi was surprised that his dance on ‘Master in the House’ went viral. The crowd were shouting for him to dance, he gamely stood up and gave a short sample of Twice’s TT and JYP’s Honey.
HE PREPARED A SWEET LUNCH BOX FOR A LUCKY AIREN
(I never thought a carrot would give me so much laughter.)
SUPRISE VIDEO MESSAGE FROM AIRENS PH
“Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak, I will be strong
Helping you to carry on
Call on me, I will be there, don’t be afraid
Please believe me when I say, count on…US!”
Lee Seung Gi said the video was so touching.
