Throwback Thursday: The Day LeeSsang ALMOST Didn't Receive Their Awards

LeeSsang decided to come to the award's show wearing hoodies and tattered jeans. Everyone else was wearing gowns and suits. They were nominated for an award. The whole time, they decided to stay right outside the backstage.

When their name was called, they ran to the stage but security let them in even after they told security their name was just called and they wanted to receive their award.

10 Surprising and Lovable Things About Gil

We all can't wait to see Gil on stage once again.




1. Best Secret Keeper but Master of Trolling

He is one of those guys that takes secrets to his grave. That's why people trust him but when it comes to teasing people, he does it best. Remember when Choiza's and Sulli's scandal broke out? He posted a reaction on Twitter teasing that he is mad that Choiza is dating Sulli but managed to not confirm the relationship. He was also first to announce that Tablo is getting married.

LEESSANG SONG REVIEW To. LeeSsang


This is probably one of the most personal songs LeeSsang has ever made. It doesn’t not only talk about themselves but also talks TO themselves. It is, in fact, a letter written by LeeSsang to themselves for the future.




A Reminder





It is a deeply pensive letter. The kind that you would write to yourself when you know your life is about to change and the changes will be so different, so dramatic, so “fantastic” that you are sure you will change. You will start living a life you never imagined you will and see a world form you never imagined could exist.

Click here and read Clown Song Review.



It’s like you are standing right at the entrance, not quite inside the door yet, but one more step and you’re in. You are still standing in that world where you spent your entire life, where your friends are, where your family is, where you have become who you are but one more step and you will leave all these behind. It’s a scary prospect but a necessary one.



This song is an ode written when LeeSsang was standing right at that spot, at the cusp of commercial success, not completely in yet but one more step and they’d be.

10 Reasons We Are Thankful For LeeSsang

There are certain songs that become more than just an air filler for us, they become a part of the major milestones. They become a representation of our thoughts and ambitions and pains.

But once in a while, if we are lucky, we encounter some music and musician that becomes more than just a representation or part of milestones. They become the storyteller of our lives or a mirror that allows us to see certain details of us we, otherwise, would have missed if it wasn't for their existence. Such is what LeeSsang has been to us.

 Today, in America's gawd-given day of thanks, we want to share with you the 10 things that LeeSsang has brought to our lives and for which we are thankful for.

Click here about Kang Gary's single with Jung In, 'The Scent'.


1. Music


They just hit the spot. They sing the soundtrack of our lives as if they are living inside our heads doing nothing but converting our thoughts and experiences to melodies. They are the voices of our often dumbfounded emotions.


2. Truth and the Courage to Tell it


It's not easy to talk about failures and humiliations. It's not easy to talk about mistakes. It's even harder to admit that no one caused it but you. LeeSsang makes us realize that after

10 Things I Love About Kang Gary

1. Wisdom when to keep silent. LeeSsang has had their hare of public problems like that of their pesky tenant but he never said anything in public except for a few sentences and it is always a cryptic description of his emotions rather than about the other person. That's class.

2. He fights predictability. He chases new sound, new experiences, new adventures because he knows new experiences will make him grow as a person and it will show in his music.

3. Generosity. LeeSsang staff is one of the highest paid in the industry. When they do well, they make sure to share it with their staff.

Click here to check out our Kang Gary Quotes Collection.

4. Makes time for his friends. To this day, he remains to be the kind of person who goes otu of his way to spend time with his friends. He doesn't need a reason to share a meal or hang out. To him, friendship is an important relationship and he is willing to time to it.

Please send your thanks to the subber: Tony.

You can head to the YouTube page and post a message of thanks via Personal Message or comments.

Don't leave comments of hate here towards Running Man China. RM China is honoring the legacy of Running Man Korea but they also deserve a chance to leave their own mark.

Thank you and enjoy!


Gil to Return via End of Year Concert

Now you know why we were feeling sentimental.




The end-of-the-year concert was planned at the beginning of the year. However, we did worry about the Gil's personal condition and whether he should or should not appear. However, we feel that it is but fitting for Gil to personally stand in front of the public to apologize. Gil and the agency decided that at the end of his reflection period, he will stand on stage.  

Throwback Thursday: Nostalgic Look at our 2 Kids

We are feeling a little nostalgic today. 

What started as a search for the right material to post for Throwback Thursday has become a trip down memory lane and we have to say that the cold breeze and hot caramel macchiato is unwillingly pulling some memories from when the limelight, stage, radio and fans were but foolish dreams for Kang Gary, Gil and their friends.

Almost 20 years ago, they were two guys with bad hairstyles and empty pockets. They had nothing but music in their head fighting to be sang, rapped and played. They had emotions only music can explain and surrounded by a bunch of friends feeling the same way.

Flip through some of their photos when they were younger. Click here.

They were innocent in their anger and lonely in their desires. They connected. They became friends… bonded in their understanding of their unexplained emotions.

LEESSANG SONG REVIEW: Clown


Clown is a perfect musical oxymoron.

It is an outright ode about the how each of us may end up with different social classes, jobs or personalities but in the end, if you look down deep, we are all the same, we all seek out to find happiness but often, we drown in sadness.

The genius of the song lies in the how Gil and Gary managed to create the perfect oxymoron by creating a melody that automatically puts you on high the moment the first note is played. It is a festive tone.

CORRECTION on ALLKPOP Article

Allkpop wrote an article about the last episode of Running Man where M.I.B.'s Kangnam was a guest and was partnered with Kang Gary. In the nametag tearing competition, Kang Gary accidentally ripped off Kangnam's nametag. The article claimed that Kang Gary is the first RM member to rip off the nametag of a member in his team.

Below is the clip in question:




This is wrong. 

Collection of FAIL LEESSANG Cover

All for fun.

We all know how hard it is to copy Kang Gary's rap and Gil's raspy voice. That's why most of those who cover LEESSANG songs are forced to really change the arrangement (right, Roy Kim?).

Just note that most of these people trying to sing LEESSANG songs didn't rehearse. However, it still proves that LEESSANG songs aren't the kind you can simply sing without much preparation.

Running Man (Korea) vs Hurry Up, Brother (China)

Some observations (just observations, we can't prove it):

1. The nametag tearing battle was "designed" to allow a one-on-one between Running Man's China counterpart. That's why Running Man Korea members consciously didn't do a lot of chasing because they were poised to do a one-on-one against their match.

2. The game was, errr, managed to even the playing field. When RM Korea was leading, China started "cheating" to oust Korea until there were almost equal number of RM Korea and RM China.

3. Kim Jong Kook is still miles away from his China's counterpart. In episode 1, Li Chen (the strongest in China) won against KJK. However, it is important to consider that KJK had to face all of them. He was exhausted. However, this battle proved that if everything else is equal, KJK is far more superior in nametag tearing.

Top 10 Favorite Broadcast LEESSANG Performances

For the long-time fans of LEESSANG, you would know that they don't do a lot of TV performances. In the early days of their career, they didn't do so simply because they don't get a lot of invitation. They weren't popular.

Now, they don't do a lot of TV performances because they concentrate on live performances as they have clearly explained that they believe the best way to enjoy their music and keep genuine connection with their fans is through live performances.



#1 - Rush in Love Letter



Rush remains to be one of Gary's and Gil's favorite LESSANG song. It talks says so much about their love for music and drive to find opportunities so they can continue living a life doing what they love doing and that's making music.

This performance, one of their earliest broadcasted performances mirrors the emotion of the song they are singing. They don't have the confidence and swag they possess now but you can truly feel the emotion and sincerity in their voice. They are still finding their style but they are very grounded in who they are, musicians to the core.

They were young and casual in style but that only added to the simplicity of the performance. It allows us see beyond the marketing and image and just see our two kids for who they are, two guys making music.

Gary is one of the Highest Music Royalty Earner

Kang Gary has been writing his own raps since X-Teen days. He has registered a lot of songs and some of them never made it to recording. He has a lot of songs under his name.


#2. 1.3 Billion for The Scent is deceiving



The feature said he earned more than 1.3 Billion Won just for digital downloads of The Scent. That's gross worth and only on selected digital download platforms not on ALL digital download platforms across the world.

LEESSANG SONG REVIEW: If I Have to Live feat. Ali

LeeSsang is known for writing songs based on their lives but Gil once explained that not everything is autobiographical. They have also written stories about their friends or things they encounter or things that they imagine as inspired by their emotions.

If I Have to Live is one of those stories.

It is written like a story both in lyrics and instruments.

The Intro and Narrativ Set Up


Using distortion, the mood is set up. There is a soothing sound of a ocean breeze which puts you at ease but just as when you are about to relax, distortion comes in which feels like the smooth and quiet night is being scratched and wounded by adding more and layers of distortion.

Kang Gary & Jung In: The Scent Review



We got several comments/questions saying they feel Kang Gary now has a girlfriend because of the change in the music he has been making. Some say that the song is for Song Ji Hyo because ‘Your hair is tied back so I can see your forehead’ alludes to Song Jihyo’s big forehead. To all of you, you are entitled to believe what you want to believe. Go ahead and have fun.

Kang Gary, Choiza & Sulli

We have a total of 538 emails and PMs about the announcement that Choiza and Sulli are dating. The two went public several days ago about their relationship.

What baffled us is how Sulli fans found this blog and assumed that we have something to say about it.

First, Choiza, SM and Amoeba Culture already said all that need to be said. The two are dating.

As to when they started dating is something for them to answer. Kang Gary, we are pretty certain, has nothing to do with their relationship.

Questions From Fans

We haven’t written in a while. A few things have happened. Gary and Jung-In, LeeSsang Company’s first artist, just took over the church and are still taking over the charts. Gary went to New York to attend an award show and do some business and a little vacation. Gil’s song has been replaced as the theme of Infinity Challenge.

Click here and check our 10 Favorite LEESSANG live performances.

We hope to write more often but for now, below are some of the questions you guys sent in and we find interesting.


Will LeeSsang release an album this year?

Gil, before his drunk driving incident, said LeeSsang was going to release an album this year but things got derailed. We have a feeling they will delay it until next year or until the controversy dies down. The other option is to release the album but avoid broadcast promotions. LeeSsang is known for doing things the unconventional way, don’t be surprised if they do it this way or find some other insane way to get their music out there.

Gil Apologizes and Halts Variety Show Activities

You already know the details by now.

Gil was arrested for drinking and driving. He lost his license.

LEESSANG Company and Infinity Challenge both issued a statement of apology stating that Gil is"self reflecting" and they will do their best to avoid this thing from happening again. It is unclear whether he is leaving IC or not. Some say he is just taking a break and some say he resigned and IC accepted.

Infinity Challenge website has been raining with criticisms and call for Gil to quit the show. Many international fans find it ridiculous. Most of us are from the US so drinking and driving is taken just seriously, unlike other countries who seem to think that drinking and driving is a passage to manhood or something. However, South Korea is not the US. Their culture is different and they do have some values that make them uniquely Koreans.

One of that is their conservative outlook.. when it is convenient



Their modern liberalism is rather young. It was only in the 70s did they finally embrace liberalism and Westernism. It wasn't until the 80s did people born under the "free society" actually reached their teens. You can imagine the constant battle between older people who feel that although they are now free to express themselves, doesn't mean they should express themselves ALL THE TIME.

I'm Good - ESens English Lyrics



Mornings were once longer than these lingering nights
I try to avoid the rush hour after a day of work
I have equal amounts of doubt and faith, like a cocktail drink
I live my life a little crazy 
Nothing new with that
All I want right now is to live with every moment with truth
That's all I will ever need
Success is like a mean hot girl
Don't be too wrapped up in it, understood?

Mad Clown - Without You (Feat. Hyolyn) English Lyrics

Mad Clown released the music video for his second single under his new label Starship X. This marks his second collaboration with an idol.

He is releasing his second mini album tomorrow titled Ferocity.

My body feels hallow like a tunnel
Night pushes out the daylilght
I don't think it rained today but hey,
My eyes are wet

ESens Drops First Single Since The Diss Battle, "I'm Good"

He has that street poetry in his lyrics. His metaphors and similes are may be sublime to the mainstream market but to those who know the gritty nature and origin of hiphop and appreciates everything in it, Esens' words are poetically sharp.

Mad Clown Teaser for Without You (feat. SISTAR’s Hyolyn)

The single will be released April 4.


Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

We have been receiving a number of questions from some of you. Instead of answering one by one, we are posting it here since there are A LOT of duplicate questions.

QUESTION: Is the Monday Couple real? Are Gary and Ji Hyo really a couple of have feelings for each other? Is Gary really in love with Ji Hyo?

ANSWER: We support LeeSsang's music, not their personal lives. It is our policy not to comment on their personal lives BEYOND WHAT THEY PUBLICLY DECLARE. Gary's relationship or who he is dating is his personal business.

QUESTION: Was Gary's Tweet pertaining to the April Fool's prank that photoshopped his tweet to make it appear as if he said "I LOVE YOU SONG JI HYO"?

ANSWER: The tweet in questions is below. The translation is: I don't pull pranks on April Fool's Day at the expense of other people. I want to curse but it's too early in the morning so I'll hold back." It SEEMS he was pertaining to the photoshopped image but he never cleared it out so we'll never know for sure.



QUESTION: Who is Gary's ex-girlfriend of 7 years.

10 Great Things About Gil



1. He is willing to be the bad guy

When something needs to be done, he doesn't mind being the bad guy just to make sure the goal is achieved by the group. In LeeSsang Company, he is known to take most of the "dirty job" just to make sure they accomplish their goal. In The Movement, Gil is the informal "organizer" of events and projects. He takes an iron fist just to make sure things get done.

10 Things We Need to Learn from LeeSsang as a Band, Friends and Partners

The hardest part about remaining friends with people you know since you were young is to try and grow up together. Often, when we explore and try to experience new things and pursue different interests, we tend to outgrow our friends. It happens to the best of relationships. The Beatles who confessed to being the best of friends and tight as tight could be found themselves not wanting the same things.

Marriages that last more than a decade still end up in divorce because they find themselves needing the relationship less. That is why it is amazing to see friendships and partnerships that stand the test of time. LeeSsang is one of the few that has remained a band, best of friends and business partners.

Below are 10 lessons we should learn from Gary's and Gil's relationship.


1. By their own admittance, Gil knows Gary more than Gary knows Himself and Gary knows Gil more than Gil knows Himself

Gil was the one who recommended Gary to Yoo Jae Suk for Running Man because Gil knew Gary would be a better variety star than he will ever be. Gary actually declined but Gil helped convince Gary to give it a try because he just KNEW Gary would shine. Gil knew even before Gary did.

Simon D Joins AOMG

This just in...


Notice that Jay Park said they will run AOMG together. He didn't just say Simon D is joining AOMG but announced that they will co-manage the group that Jay Park built.

It is unclear exactly what Simon D's role will be at this point. However, there are some things to gain on both end.

For Simon D, he is going to get some mainstream power from Jay Park. Jay Park has since established himself as a solo artist. He also managed to be very clear that he is the only one who calls the shots when it comes to his career. That sets him apart from other idols. However, his idol roots give him the undeniable mainstream following and Simon D will benefit from that.

This also means that Simon D will have more liberty in making decisions in his own career while still having the backing of an established company.

On the other hand, Jay Park is going to gain some legitimacy in the hip hop scene with Simon D. Prior to Simon D's penetration to the mainstream market, he has a strong hold in the underground hip hop scene. In fact, in the early days of Supreme Team, they were still recognized as a non-mainstream group. Jay Park will have a better chance of establishing himself as an artist rather than just an idol.

Jay Park will also benefit from Simon D's contacts with more respected hiphop artists. That will elevate the quality of the music he produces for himself and for other artists.

We'll be watching.
