The first pictorial of any K-star returning from military service is always a combination of checking out if he’s gotten manlier and seeing how fast his buzz cut hair has grown in a few weeks. For Lee Seung Gi, it’s a resounding gorgeous on both counts for this Star1 pictorial, he’s really added an additional manly layer on top of his always boyish charm, and just two weeks out has given his too short hair just the right added length for that magazine ready muss. He’s in the thick of work already, diving into filming tvN fantasy K-drama Hwayugi opposite Cha Seung Won, Oh Yeon Seo, and Lee Hong Ki with a script by the Hong Sisters whom both male leads have successfully worked with in the past. He’s also prepping for a singing comeback in early 2018 and will likely make a variety show appearance if not as a member then as a guest. With this first pictorial also comes his first public appearance at tomorrow’s Asia Artist Awards, I’m so excited!
