It seemed ill-fitting to congratulate Lee Seung Gi‘s big night at the 2021 Baeksang Awards with my earlier post covering the acting/drama/movie sides since he was there not for his excellent performance in the not excellent Mouse but for his other gig, the variety show chameleon. He was nominated for Best Variety Star this year alongside the usual names and with three popular shows under his belt Master of the House (All the Butlers), Sing Again, and Busted! he took home the prize for his first Baeksang Best Variety Star win. Of course it’s on a night when beloved veteran Yoo Jae Suk, nominated in the same category, took home the Daesang which also coincided with his 30th anniversary in the industry. If there is a genuine successor to Yoo Jae Suk then Lee Seung Gi’s name would be in right up there for sure so it was quite fitting. Congrats to Seung Gi who looked like the happiest of happy boys as he should after his win.
