There was a segment on his 'I Live Alone' episode where it showed Seungri responding to voice mail messages to staff in Japan, China, and the US after breakfast. Viewers noticed that when the camera flashed to his phone, it showed Seungri asking someone to send him a voice mail, leading to speculation as to whether the particular scene was scripted.

1. [+303, -21] TV is all scripted. I never saw his episode but it's not like they scripted someone who can't speak the language to look like they can... he obviously knows it, they just scripted it to make sure that he sounds like he does, is that so bad?

2. [+299, -26] Scripted or not, we know that he's fluent in it... the other celebrities sure sounded scripted though ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+231, -26] I actually think it shows that he's a hard worker. He'll be successful anywhere with work ethic like that.

4. [+22, -5] I did think it was kind of obvious ㅋㅋㅋ The audio files all sounded the same and even Seungri replied, "I'll be going to OO soon so let's talk there" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but even that sounded cute ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+18, -1] Even if it was scripted, they shouldn't have made it so obvious ㅋㅋ

6. [+17, -6] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It was obvious that it was scripted but I think it's cute that he wanted to show off how good he is with foreign languages like that

7. [+15, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'd want to show off too, it's not easy being fluent in four languages

8. [+14, -0] That's how TV works ㅋㅋㅋㅋ anyway, it was plenty obvious that he's a hard worker!

9. [+13, -2] Nothing wrong with asking for some audio files to use for TV

10. [+7, -1] It makes sense that it was scripted since the camera crew can't just wait around for him to spontaneously take a call from an international business partner. It's the TV's fault for not checking what the message said but it doesn't change the fact that Seungri is able to speak in foreign languages and also runs several businesses.

  1. You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually one thing that I think I might by no
    means understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely large for me. I'm looking forward to your
    next submit, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!

  2. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she
    has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!
