Why is Lee Seung Gi in Ilocos Sur?


South Korean star Lee Seung Gi was spotted granting photo ops with fans while touring Vigan in Ilocos Sur. 

Photos of the K-drama actor exploring Vigan circulated on Thursday as fans gushed over his surprise visit to the country.

The Vagabond actor was photographed exploring some of the city’s tourist spots including Calle Crisologo and Baluarte Zoo. 

Luis Christian Singson, the son of former Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson, also shared a photo with Seung Gi, saying they met the actor over dinner.

“Sobrang bait at humble niya,” Singson described Seung Gi.

He was also spotted staying at a resort owned by Chavit Singson in the municipality of Narvacan.

“Actually, the itinerary of Seung Gi is from Hon. Chavit’s house in Narvacan, Ilocos Sur. Then (he) visited Baluarte Zoo and had a dinner at Calle Crisologo, in Vigan City,” uploader Khris Jann Tabag shared.

While most fans presumed he’s in the country for vacation, others speculated if he’s filming for an upcoming TV project. 

A source said that the actor was supposed to hold a meet and greet early today. But no reason was provided why it didn’t push through.

Known for his roles in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Law Cafe and A Korean Odyssey, Seung Gi last visited the Philippines in 2019 for a fan meet. 

The 36-year-old actor recently announced his engagement to actress girlfriend Lee Da In. They are set to tie the knot next month.
