FT Island message to Japanese Primadonnas

Newest message from the band members to Primadonna Japan. In Japanese, and Korean with Japanese subtitles here

It's the sort of the thing you'd expect, and much the same as they've said before. Minhwan says he's sorry he couldn't come, but he's thankful to all the people who came and supported them. Jonghoon says the whole "please continue to support both FT ISland and Wonbin" line. If anyone wants to give a more accurate/word-for-word translation that's be great. My Japanese skills get me the gist, but that's about all.

I really have no idea what Jonghoon and Hongki are up to at the end, but they're very silly boys.

FT Island Comeback on Inkigayo
allkpop

FT Island is back with their new member Song Seung Hyun, and they did a great job on their first time back on stage. The treasure boys are growing up, dressed in suits and Hongki rocking the Goo Jun Pyo hairstyle. Very F4.

Get ready for more sad drama music. So symbolic using Vivaldi's Winter for Missing U... get it? It's so "cold" without you~~ These guys should be raking it in as kings of the OST.

Check out the February 15th FT Island comeback episode of SBS Inkigayo, where they performed their two tracks Missing U and Bad Woman.

ALLKPOP'S REVIEW ON FT ISLAND'S NEW MINI ALBUM



F.T Island or FTI for short, is the name of a South Korean instrumental band. The name F.T Island stands for 'Five Treasures Island', signifying each member as the 'treasures'. Their official color is yellow, and fans carry yellow flags known as "pentasticks." Their self-titled debut album was the sixth best-selling album of 2007 in South Korea. FT Island has quickly become one of the most famous pop/rock bands in the Kpop scene. They have even managed to cross into Japan and have landed on the Oricon charts. Recently, one of FT Islands members, Wonbin, has been replaced by Song Seung Hyun. However, this did not stop FT Island from continuing their music.

FT Island recently released their new mini album entitled "Jump Up". Here is my full review of the album:

FT Island "Jump Up"
Genre: Pop/Rock; Ballad
Korean Issue Date: 2009-02-11

Track 1: 나쁜 여자야 ( (You Are A) Bad Girl)
An overly emo and dramatic song, so of course I love it. Throughout the entire song there is a strong string section adding to the overall depressing feeling of the song. This is the single they are promoting the album with, which in my opinion was a great choice. The music video reflects the lyrics well.

Track 2: 인형처럼 (Like A Doll)
I like this song better than Bad Girl. The first 30 seconds is sort of an intro for the rest of the song. This song features the second vocal (Song Seung Hyun?) on the verse and very nice harmonies with HongKi during the chorus. The 1st verse starts peaceful with just the piano playing and they turn it up as the song progresses. I love the bridge part.

Track 3: 마법 (Magic)
This song is finally one where the guitars aren't drowned out by the all the other editing layers on top of the music. This track features the new member of the group, Song Seung Hyun, with a rap passage which is...o.k. But, really? Rap!? Well, the guitar solo while the guy is rapping is good.

Track 4: Missing You
"Missing You" features a sampling of an old famous orchestral piece that I can't figure out the name to. Anyways, this track is actually very good too. I like the bass part during the verses. A very generic guitar solo is played in this song before the last chorus.

Track 5: 그대와 나 (You And Me)
In this song bassist Lee Jae Jin and guitar/pianist Choi Jong Hun are on lead vocals. Their voices are actually very pleasant; a pleasant surprise. Probably the most chill song throughout the album. The guitar solo is the best on the album.

Track 6: 어쩌란 말이야 (What Can I do?)
Some of the guitar strumming patterns throughout the song reminds me of Maroon 5. There is another rap bit in this song which is better than the first one but still the question arises...why??? Tempo is slow but I love the guitars throughout the song.

Overall I give this album 4.5 out of 5
This album gets high marks due to a couple of reasons. First off is the switching of singers throughout the album. I love it when bands showcase their other member's vocal talents. This relieves the redundancy of hearing the same lead singer over and over, keeping the album fresh and exciting to listen to. Second, I was kind of scared of how the new guy would affect the band's music but he seems to have a nice voice. Only complaints I have are about the rapping...stick to singing please.

Here is some advice: If I were you I would become a member and check out our very cool forums, to find cool people, gossip, and other free goodies.

FT Island Parodies Boys Over Flowers

On yesterday's MNet M! Countdown the boys of FT Island parodied the ever popular drama Boys Over Flowers.

It was pretty hilarious and I'm sure the fans will get a kick out of it. It's always good to have some extra buzz with their recent comeback.

Song Seung Hyun Wants To Be Daesung
Source; allkpop



Well, he wants to have Daesung's character in Family Outing anyway. In a recent interview, Song Seung Hyun said that "I have a lot of interest in variety programs. If I get the chance, I want to go on Family Outing. I really want Daesung's character because it is so charming. I want to be able to make people laugh with funny actions that don't really match my style and appearance unlike Daesung." Okay, so I added that last part, but saying that being funny doesn't fit your image implies that it fits Daesung. And I couldn't agree more. If Daesung didn't have such fine vocals, I swear he'd have a career as the best slapstick comedian ever.

Anyways, the new FT Island member is said to have a unique personality. FT Island members spoke up that "Seung Hyun speaks and thinks differently than normal people. It's really peculiar and funny. For example, when we tickle him, he makes these weird sounds. He named these sounds 'Sound Attack'." It seems like the band has filled up Won Bin's spot pretty fast, and I don't know if naming weird sounds that you produce makes one automatically funny, but we'll have to see.
