During the ceremony, actor Lee Seo Jin later recited the poem “Rose of Sharon” dedicated to fallen soldiers, and singer Gummy performed the song “We Remember Them” along with a children’s choir.
It’s been a long time since fans of Lee Seung Gi have had a chance to see him perform, as he enlisted in the army for his mandatory military service on February 1 of this year. Lee Seung Gi is expected to be discharged from the army on October 31, 2017.
