On the April 14th broadcast of Lee Sun Hee‘s special on SBS‘ ‘Healing Camp’, Lee Seung Gi opened up about suddenly taking on the role as ‘Strong Heart’s only MC. He said, ”Also being a main MC at such a young age… Personally, I think I especially had a really difficult time when Kang Ho Dong wasn’t there for a short time. I wanted to run away a couple of times a day. Around 20 to 25 guests come on, and bringing the celebrities together and carrying [the show] by myself was extremely difficult because I wasn’t prepared for it.”

He went on, “Since I haven’t been doing variety shows for about two years and I reflected on myself when I used to do a lot of variety shows and was active, there are times when I feel like I had really competitive sense when it comes to things I say. I felt pride that if I do it, I will be the best at, it but that wasn’t it. Once I left and took a hiatus… I felt like I exhausted myself during the course of only two to three years. But [in the case of Lee Kyung Kyu sunbaenim], doing this comedy route consistently for 30 years is very [impressive].”

MC Lee Kyung Kyu joked, “It’s not that hard. Because if the show does well, it’s my doing, and if it does bad, it’s your fault. If you have that perspective, it’s comfortable. If it does well, I take the credit, but if it does bad, I say, what’s wrong with the guest who came on today,” bringing everyone on set to laughter.
