Seungri, or “The Great Seungsby” as he is known as these days, shared a little bit about his success in the variety program scene on an episode of Please Take Care of My Refrigerator.
Among his many impressive achievements this year was a 23% audience rating for a variety program he appeared on. Seungri added that this rating for the show was nearly the same as the rating for the drama My Love from the Star, which was a major hit!
“I’m basically like Kim Soo Hyun.” ㅡ Seungri
Seungri has not only been receiving a lot of love from viewers on variety programs for his down-to-earth and humorous personality but has also successfully launched his first solo concert. With the addition of a successful restaurant chain business, Seungri has truly been having a pretty awesome year.
This may or may not have had an influence, but Seungri explained that Yang Hyun Suk has been treating him differently these days. According to the idol, Yang Hyun Suk had kindly picked up some naengmyeon (Korean cold noodles) from a famous restaurant in Hannam-dong and brought it over to Seungri for him.
“Eat first.” ㅡ Yang Hyun Suk (impersonated by Seungri)
He continued to explain how things have changed. About 5 years ago, Seungri usually took the farthest seat away from Yang Hyun Suk.
“Just 5 years ago, I always sat outside of Yang Hyun Suk’s sight because he always pointed things out when he saw me.” ㅡ Seungri
“In my opinion, if only that little punk would do better…” ㅡ Yang Hyun Suk (impersonated by Seungri)
These days, however, Yang Hyun Suk now begins by inviting Seungri to sit next to him rather than pointing out his flaws.
The hosts nodded their heads in agreement, saying that Seungri’s position (at YG) has definitely changed!
