Over 1800 fans of singer-actor Lee Seung Gi (이승기) gathered at PGRM Tower, Cheras on Saturday evening for his fan-meeting show, “Vagabond Voyage”.

The weather was extremely fine that day, perfect for AIRENs (as fans are lovingly called) to show up earlier, despite the event starting at 7pm. Die-hard supporters of the “You’re All Surrounded” star filled in the Dewan Wawasan Hall by 5pm.

Seung Gi’s past hit songs, such as “Because We Are Friends” and “Losing My Mind” were played as fans settled down to their seats. After a few moments, the lights went out as the 32-year-old appeared on stage wearing a black top layered with a matching coloured studded cardigan, as he opened the show with “Because You Are My Woman”. After a sweet opening number, emcee Owen Yap came out to officially kick off the event.

For those who don’t know, Kuala Lumpur was the last stop for his “Vagabond Voyage” fan-meet, after successfully wrapping his tours in other cities such as Tokyo, Taipei, Manila, Singapore, and Bangkok.

Seung Gi was asked about the meaning behind the title of the fan-meeting. In this case, the Hallyu heartthrob responded by explaining that, “The name ‘Vagabond’ is taken from the drama I’m starring in, while the term ‘Voyage’ can be compared to travelling. So, this event is equivalent to a trip to meet all the fans.”

1st Segment: “Big Data: Update Talk”

Without wasting any minute, the event proceeded with the first segment of the night called “Big Data: Update Talk”. The screen showed 3 keywords on what Seung Gi had been doing since last year; Fan-meeting, variety and “Vagabond”.

For the 1st keyword “Fan-meeting”, footage of Seung Gi’s past fan-meeting shows in other countries were shown on the wide screen. Seung Gi was then asked if there is any difference when it comes to his experience with fans from other countries. He then emphasised the fact that almost all of them were very passionate, but they have different ways of expressing their feelings. He then continued by saying, “Malaysians are very passionate. I can feel the heat”.

Moving on to the next keyword “Variety”, MC Owen pointed out on his stint in Korean variety shows. “I have been busy for the past 2 years,” Seung Gi clarified. He was then asked about his experience in SBS “Little Forest”. The “My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho” actor then responded, “There were a lot of fun parts working with the little kids”. So, what was the tiring part of working with them, then? “Everything was good but they were reluctant to go to sleep. So it can be a little scary during the night,” the handsome hunk recalled.

They then proceeded to talk about his appearance in the 2nd season of “Busted”. Owen asked about the most interesting part of the show. Seung Gi responded by saying “The style of the show is totally different from what I have done before. In this case, I was able to portray different sides of me.”

In addition, he was asked on which cast member he had the most chemistry with. His answer was the best, though. “Sehun (from EXO),” Seung Gi said, which in turn received a significant amount of cheer among fans. He then further added by saying, “I can interact with him well. I became closer with him after working together (in “Busted”).”

The last keyword for the night was “Vagabond”. The screen then showed various behind-the-scene photos taken by his manager. MC Owen pointed out a selfie photo he had with co-star Bae Suzy and director Yoo In Shik. He was asked about his experience working with Yoo. “He was not scary at all! Instead, he speaks very nicely,” Seung Gi told the emcee. And with that, the 1st segment had come to an end.

2nd Segment: “Variety Talk: Entertainment Corner” 

The 2nd segment was named “Variety Talk: Entertainer Corner”. The session presented past footages of Seung Gi’s past stint in variety shows like “All The Butlers” and “Little Forest”. Die-hard fans cheered and screamed their lungs out as the clip showed various scenes that highlighted his multi-talented skills as an all-rounded entertainer. The video concluded with a clip of him receiving the “Grand Prize” (Daesang) awards at the SBS Entertainment Awards 2018.

“Looking at the video, I have done a lot during the shows,” Seung Gi admitted. He also caught the emcee’s attention for his unique dancing skills. He was then asked to show off his moves for his fans. During the same segment, he also played a set of basketball shooting game. Despite a few glitches here and there during the game, fans still managed to snag some lucky draw gifts in the form of autograph posters.

3rd Segment: “Date With Lee Seung Gi” 

The next segment was called “Date With Lee Seung Gi”. For those who don’t know, the “1 Night 2 Days” star is also known for his love in cooking. According to the star, he had a special surprise for a fan in the venue – a local cuisine called popiah for a lucky AIREN that will be chosen via a lucky draw.

After he finished working on the yummy treat, the situation became intense when Seung Gi started to draw in the lot. A fan from Taiwan known as Peggy was picked by “The King 2 Hearts” actor to come onstage to meet him in person. Not only that, she was fed by the star himself!

For the next session, the crowd was then divided into 2 – Team A (left side of the hall) and Team B (right side). 7 lucky fans were randomly picked on the screen to represent each team. They were challenged to play a telepathy game. In this case, each rep from both teams must choose one pose from the screen. If Seung Gi’s pose matches their pose, the team wins. Those with the wrong pose will get eliminated until one team wins.

After a neck-and-neck competition between the 2 teams, it came down to only 2 reps from each team. As a result, team A eventually won. They managed to bring home cosmetics set as well as signed poster. It didn’t end there! Seung Gi then came down to the the seated crowd at the left side of Dewan Wawasan for some photo opportunities.

At the end of the segment, the emcee told everyone that the fan-meeting had come to an end. It was clear that everyone wanted more of Seung Gi. Despite the unfortunate news, he then proceeded with preparing himself for a group photo with the entire audience. The lights were dimmed as a special fan-made clip was played on the screen.

The video included footages of the pop star from his military discharge all the way up to his current work. However a lovely twist came in the form of a video asking him to turn around to face the fans. The whole arena was holding up hand banners with a warm message dedicated specially for him.

Seung Gi’s face was filled with excitement as he expressed his happy feelings towards each and everyone of his fans who came to his show that evening. “This really gives me strength to be more happy in the coming days ahead in order to be together with AIRENs. I will be working harder from now on,” Seung Gi promised his fans.

After his heartwarming speech, the arena turned dark as he prepared to perform his next song. A few moments later, Seung Gi started to sing “Return”. After that, Seung Gi shared with the crowd on his plans for his comeback in music. “There are always circumstances happening along the way. I wish I could release many more songs after this,” said the Seoul-born entertainer. He further added by expressing his wish to release a full album that contains stories that he can share with everyone.

He then proceeded with a mellowed down performance of “Delete” while sitting on a chair. Seung Gi’s flawless high-note skills managed to wow the crowd. Right before his last performance, he asked fans to dance and sing along with him. Everyone stood up from their seats and moved to the beat of his last 2 songs; “Smile Boy” and “Let’s Go On A Vacation”. And with that, the fan-meeting was over.
