My two eyes shine the most when they look upon you
My heart is happiest when I think of you
Everything of me is only for you
Please always stay by me like this
Even if you say you can’t do much for me
Don’t worry, I will always believe in you and love you
Oh my love

Happy Birthday, Kang Gary!

To celebrate his 36th (because I am counting like an American), here are 36 Reasons that makes Gary Badass on his 36th birthday.

10 Important Revelations From Kang Gary's W Magazine Interview

1. Courage to fail
It wasn't until he joined Running Man that LeeSsang finally solidified their position in the mainstream market but mainstream was never his priority, making music was, artistry was. He made a solo album that he knew will be criticized, banned and threaten their mainstream career but he didn't care. He wanted to grow as an artist at all cost.

2. Clarity in his passion
Music was the reason he set his life straight. He bet everything he had just to make music and 16 years since, he is still betting everything on the line ffor his music. He proves that for each of us, your passion is worth fighting for.

10 Important Revelations From Kang Gary's W Magazine Interview

Kang Gary's recent W Magazine interview is one of the best mainstream interviews he has had.

There are several things he revealed and reemphasized. For those who want to understand Kang Gary as an artist better, here are 10 things to pick up.

1. Music was, is and will always be the anchor in Kang Gary’s life

In different interviews in the past, he already said that he is a musician first and foremost and everything else “is just noise”. Those who only know him as a variety star believe that Kang Gary gives more weight to his TV career. Here, he reaffirmed that he considers his music as his passion in his career. So much so that he is would rather disappoint the Running Man fans than be unable to progress and grow as a musician.

It's E-Sens' birthday!

Prior to forming Supreme Team with Simon D, E-Sens was an underground rapper that was credited as the Eminem of Korea because of his ability to write angsty and poetic verses mixed with humor, sarcasm and a great sense of abandon towards social decorum. 

Can't wait for his solo album.

10 Greatest Kang Gary Running Man Episodes

In the early days of Running Man, Kang Gary earned a reputation for being laid back. When all the members are gearing up for the best fight of their lives, he stays behind and let the members battle it out. It is not true that Gary is competitive. It is just that he was trained to channel his competitiveness to the proper aspect of his life. He is an 8th dan in Tae Kwon Do. Someone at that level imbibes the deepest principles of the art which includes humility.

There are, however, still some episodes where his competitive side comes out. It's more a splurge and he quickly regains control and goes back to his laid back side. But it is also those moments when we catch a glimpse of the other side of Gary. It gives us an idea that there is more to this guy than what we see on Running Man.

Below are 10 of the best episodes he has had. Some of these episodes show his competitive side but most it show just how human and funny he really is.

10. Episode 83

It is always a pleasure to watch Yoo Jae Suk and Kang Gary in one team. The two have developed a different kind of friendship through the years. Gary has been vocal about how much Yoo Jae Suk has inspired him and how much Gary respects him. That mutual respect shows when they are in one team. It is very evident here.
