Seung-gil Lee (Korean: 이 승길; Japanese: イ・スンギル, Ii Sungiru) is a South Korean figure skater featured in Yuri!!! on Ice.
Not much is known about Seung-gil, except that he owns a Siberian Husky, as seen in the ending on his Instagram page.
Seung-gil is a young man of average height. He has black hair, dark grey eyes, pale skin, and thick eyebrows. He often is seen with a serious or stoic expression.
His usual outfit consists of a black tracksuit jacket with blue trim, and black pants.
During his short program, Seung-gil wears a rainbow-feathered costume that vastly contrasts with his usual dressing style.
During his free skate, he wears a suit-like costume paired with a shimmering tie and matching gloves.
When Seung-gil is not skating, he zones everything out and is rather air-headed. When he steps onto the ice, however, he becomes relentless and gains a cold-hearted gleam to his eyes. This transformation is part of his appeal to figure skating fans.
Seung-gil is popular as his skating is beautiful. However, he is stoic towards his mostly female fans, as well as other women, like Sara Crispino. He shows a more vulnerable side when he cries after failing to advance to the Grand Prix final.
Seung-gil's programs do not contain any fanservice since he only ever thinks about how to best demonstrate his skills. He is also very calculative, tallying his base and any additional TES instead of fully focusing on his presentation during his short program, and watching Yuuri's free skate with an analytical gaze.
Seung-gil has a great jumping ability and was, for a while, the only skater able to land a quadruple loop in international competition. He was the one who landed the first ratified quad loop.
Seung-gil's strong ability in mathematics is reflected in the speed in which he is able to calculate his TES even as he skates.
Min-so is Seung-gil's coach. Seung-gil does not seem to talk to her very much, even ignoring her advice sometimes. Min-so also does not seem very close to Seung-gil, and she mostly only seems interested in making sure Seung-gil works towards the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
Sara is the only figure skater in the show who attempts to engage in friendly conversation with Seung-gil. She does show some interest in him, but Seung-gil is indifferent towards her multiple advances. Seung-gil does have Sara's number saved on his phone, though the reason how or why is unknown.
