Watch: Lee Seung Gi And Kang Ho Dong Watch Old “Strong Heart” Clips As They Gear Up For Return
“Strong Heart,” which aired from 2009 to 2013, was a talk show in which the guest stars of each episode would share their stories, and the best storyteller would be awarded the title of “strong heart” through votes from the audience.
The upcoming relaunched version of the program, “Strong Heart League,” will be divided into two teams, Team Kang Ho Dong and Team Lee Seung Gi, and will feature interesting guests and stories that will stimulate viewers’ curiosity. It was also previously announced that Lee Ji Hye, Kim Dong Hyun, Kim Ho Young, Young Tak, Uhm Ji Yoon, and MIRAE’s Son Dong Pyo will join the program as “talk coaches” who will support the storytellers from each team.
The newly released teaser begins with Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi looking at past “Strong Heart” videos starring top stars such as Song Joong Ki, BIGBANG’s G-Dragon, Suzy, IU, Lee Jong Suk, and more.
After reminiscing over old times, Kang Ho Dong remarks, “It’s fun [looking at past videos], but at the same time, I wasn’t able to fully enjoy it.” Kang Ho Dong elaborates, “Because it’s not like we only watched it to look back on memories. Now, we have to start again and be better than the old ‘Strong Heart’. The pressure to make sure the spotlight goes to each of the storytellers [guests] has already begun to dawn on me.”
When Kang Ho Dong asks if Lee Seung Gi agrees with him, Lee Seung Gi humorously replies, “But you just said that the main characters are the guests. Is it necessary for us to be overly anxious and nervous? I’m very comfortable.” Lee Seung Gi adds, “When I’m with Ho Dong hyung, I’m able to go back to that time when I was just one of the [assisting] players, so it’s very enjoyable for me.”
Finally, the two tease the new “battle” system for the new program as Lee Seung Gi concludes their conversation by saying, “I think our teams will have very different colors.”
