The new Banana Yoshimoto novel will have a protagonist modeled after Lee Seung Gi! The famous Japanese novelist has a close friendship with the star and even attended his Budokan concert in 2012.

The conclusion of the novel will be revealed by Lee Seung Gi at his exclusive event to be held in Tokyo at the end of this year. The two have a mutual admiration and Yoshimoto even presented him with a signed copy of her novel at his concert in 2012. Lee Seung Gi is flattered and excited for this venture, and so are we!
