Gil Seong-joon (Korean: 길성준, Hanja: 吉成俊; born December 24, 1977), better known by his stage name Gil (Korean: 길) is a South Korean singer and television personality. He is co-founder of Leessang. He has been a member of MBC's Infinite Challenge since April 2009.
In 2009, Gil joined Infinity Challenge as a guest and, later on, as a regular co-host. Gil also co-hosted Come To Play. In 2012, Gil joined Voice of Korea as one of the coaches. He is back for Season 2. On July 15, 2012, Gary and Gil were both featured on Psy's "Seventy Seven 101." Psy, Kim Jin Pyo, and Leessang all worked together on the song. The song and the album were "restricted" because of explicit lyrics in "Seventy Seven 101". Psy jokingly said it's all Gary's fault.
In Infinity Challenge episode 253 Gil said that when he was 5 years old, his father fainted, causing him to be disabled. To cure him, they put their house on auction. Gil's father spent around 10 years laying down on bed, before he started to talk and walk again.
Nicknames in Infinite Challenge:
Gil made his first appearance on an episode which featured Korean figure skater Kim Yu-na in April 2009, ostensibly substituting for Jeong Jun-ha, who had to leave the episode recording early. He remained a de facto member of Infinite Challenge until he became a full member later that year. During the Boxing episodes in January 2010, Gil showed off his 9-year-long training in the sport. Gil is often called the Unfunny Friend due to his inability to ad-lib as quickly as the other co-hosts.
