Lee Seung Gi’s Agency Makes Clarification Regarding Unofficial Event Scheduled Before His Concert
Lee Seung Gi’s agency has responded to reports regarding an unofficial event that was scheduled to take place ahead of his Atlanta concert.
Recently on August 30, Lee Seung Gi held his concert at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta. A local Korean news outlet reported that ahead of his concert, Lee Seung Gi canceled his scheduled visit to a restaurant that sponsored the concert.
In response to the report, Lee Seung Gi’s agency Humanmade clarified by explaining a misunderstanding that took place, causing his visit to the restaurant to be revealed to the public. They explained, “Although there was a verbal agreement to take a photo with the employees, it was advertised on social media like an event.”
They further clarified, “On the way to Atlanta from Los Angeles, turbulence caused shaking, so it was 10 p.m. by the time [Lee Seung Gi] arrived, and it was past 10:30 p.m. when he reached his hotel. The agency placed importance of the artist’s physical condition.”
The agency added, “We asked for understanding from related personnel as issues with [Lee Seung Gi’s] performance could arise if he overdid it by going to the restaurant. If an event or fan meeting were promised with the restaurant, he would have attended no matter what regardless of his state. However, the concert was the most important scheduled activity, and we thought that the guests attending the concert should come first.”
Previously in May, Lee Seung Gi kicked off his “The Dreamer’s Dream – Chapter 2” tour. During the U.S. leg of his tour, he performed in Los Angeles on August 26 and Atlanta on August 30. Although a concert was scheduled for New Jersey, the event was canceled due to issues from the venue’s side.
