Profile of the Ballad King
Lee Seung-gi was born on January 13, 1987, in Banghak-Dong, Dobong District, South Korea. Not much is known about his family, but it is known that Lee Seung-gi comes from a very rich family in South Korea. In an interview, he said that he is not that close to his family. During his elementary and middle school days, he was considered an intelligent student who was good at almost everything.
Lee Seung-gi is someone who puts education above everything, and that is why, before entering the entertainment industry, he studied at Dongguk University pursuing his degree in international trade and commerce and graduated on February 20, 2009. He also received a Special Achievement Award during graduation. After that, he continued his studies and so far has obtained two master’s degrees, one in trade theory and the other in finance and cultural contents at Dongguk Graduate School.
Right now, he is still active in the South Korean entertainment industry and works under the talent agency Hook Entertainment. The Ballad King is also known to have a clean image in South Korea which eventually got him the nickname of “Nation’s umchina” and “Nation’s Little Brother”.
How Tall Is Lee Seung-gi?
Lee Seung-gi has a great figure that all men must be dying to have! But, how tall is he really? Well, he is 182 cm tall and weighs in at 70 kg. He has both the figure and the face of a model! I mean, just look at these pictures from his photo shoot for Star1 Magazine‘s December Issue. Jeez, isn’t he just so perfect?
There is no doubt that Lee Seung-gi has an outstanding visual which leads to many people wondering whether or not he has undergone any plastic surgeries to enhance his looks. Well, it seems like he has not received any procedures at all! In 2013 on an episode of KBS’s One Night of TV Entertainment, the host asked if he has always been so good looking and asked if he had received any plastic surgery, to which he replied playfully by saying “I did receive surgery a few days ago...”, but later, he revealed that the surgery was getting his wisdom tooth pulled out.
A few years later in 2015 when he appeared as a guest on SBS Power FM’s radio show Kim Young Chul′s Fun Fun Today on July 10, he talked honestly about his appearance and said that sometimes he does get envious of handsome men, but eventually he became confident with his looks. He also said that he did consider getting plastic surgery, but he did not do it because he was too scared and he just wanted to be natural.
Lee Seung-gi is not just a pretty face but he also has super sexy abs which he does not show often. But, during his 2009 year-end concert, he actually ripped off his shirt to show his abs off, which, of course, got his fans screaming like crazy! Here are pictures of his abs during that time- check it out!
