Jaejin @ 090410 MBC Let Me Sleep Over Tonight caps, credit to newsen

This week is Jaejin’s week.
Heheh.
(And next month will be Jaejin’s month…. kekeke =P)

It’s great that he’s slowly getting into the limelight.
(Despite being casted to the musical because his looks is simpler than Seunghyun’s (refer to the above caps))

FT Island's "Graduation" Photobook Scans

Those of you who have friends (or are staying) in Japan, proceed to FT Island’s Official Japan Merchandise Shop to purchase the photobook (only for Japanese residents) at 7,777 yen per set, excluding shipping and handling fees.
(That’s about US$78 or S$117, as per current rates)
The shop is also selling the previously released CDs and concert DVDs, and also their upcoming single.

You ask me again, “Why do I have to buy the photobook?”.

Well, to keep memories of Wonbin, is one….

To keep glossy pictures of your favourite member, is another… ^__^

And the fact that the photobook is super gorgeous is the most important….


So, what are you waiting for?
SEE MORE SCANS!! or BUY!!

[PV] FT Island - "I Believe Myself"


First look of FT Island’s new PV (albeit still at Low Quality), “I Believe Myself”.
(The high-quality PV is also bundled in the CD+DVD purchase of the new single, released on 22 April 2009)
BUY THE SINGLE HERE!!


Do your part to generate more hits (and make their single climb up the charts faster) in Japan, by watching the PV on the Oricon website ^___^

Go here please –> “I Believe Myself” PV on Oricon Japan.


The PV looks very emo, with lots of “space” photography on very pretty grass field background.
The pace of the PV is slightly similar with their very first PV for “Soyogi” (with the slow-panning camera and individual member focus).
But “I Believe Myself” gives a little more hope, with scenes of the boys running around happily at the beach. This PV also gives much brighter feeling (Soyogi was literally, much darker…. haha).

Here are a couple more caps from the PV:
(Pardon the LQ caps…. I can only do SO MUCH with a still-LQ video… ^__^)

Jaejin:

Minhwan:

Hongki:

Seunghyun:

Schedule UPDATED!

Wow, when FnC updates the schedule, they UPDATE!!! the schedule.

I mean… seriously…. it’s not even the end of the month yet, and they’ve managed to populate the whole of MAY 2009 with various events! Some of which are even on the same timing as Jaejin’s musical timings !! O_O

I guess I have to be glad that now they’re getting more popular…
Although some of the events are still subject to changes, but at least we can see that FnC is giving them a lot of opportunities to perform.
I’m glad. ^__^

This week marks the last stage of “Missing You” at Mnet M!Countdown (airing tomorrow, Thursday 16 April 2009). After that, the boys should be preparing for Japan concerts already.
Busy busy bees …..

And guess who’s going back and guesting on MBC Every1’s Idol Army soon?
Well, it’s the boys of FT Island, of course =P
They’ll start recording this coming Friday, and from my mostly-unreliable psychic power, I predict the episode will be broadcasted early May 2009.
Exciting, eh? ^__^

On another note, thanks to the many festivals in Spring, we see many plans (still subject to changes) for the boys to perform in various Spring Festival Concerts in universities. Just hope that the campus noonas take lots of fancams and share…. ^___^

"I Believe Myself" PV Making Photos


When you finish repeating FT Island’s new Japanese PV, “I Believe Myself” for the 100+++th time on Oricon website, check out the behind-the-scene photos for the PV Making.

Not all of the photos’ quality are very good (the lighting at dusk didn’t help much either), but it’s still interesting to see how they filmed the PV.

More “PV Making” photos after the jump, see it here!

When the hard work *REALLY* pays off..

Nothing’s wrong with the above screencapture of MBC Let Me Sleep Over Tonight (which featured FT Island on its 10 April 2009’s broadcast), apart from a flower boy tucking into his Gejang (= marinated crab in soy sauce).

But a closer look at his drinking mug shows a cute mug with his name on it, and a character print on the other side of the mug.

We can’t really see what character it is exactly, as the camera doesn’t really focus on it (d-oh, of course it will focus on the boys).

So, let me show you how it REALLY looks like….

The other boys also seemed to have it…..

Jonghoon has one,

Both Jaejin and Minhwan have one each too….

Sadly, only Seunghyun doesn’t have one…… (i really feel bad for him)

So, what’s the story here?

Apparently, the mugs were a gift from an overseas fan, Jadelzy (she’s from Singapore).
She customized each mug for each member (with adorable South-Park characters), complete with their names, and sent them over to F&C as a fan-gift.

But the shipping wasn’t a very smooth experience….
When she sent over the mugs the first time, it was December 2008, and F&C was in the midst of moving their office. Therefore, the mugs got sent back from Seoul because of bad address.
Jadelzy didn’t give up and re-sent the mugs to the company’s new address. The mugs didn’t get returned this time…. but she’s not sure whether the boys received them…..

Well, until last week, that is….
(When the boys showed them off (together with their other fan gifts) in MBC Let Me Sleep Over Tonight’s visit to their dorm)

Unfortunately, when she sent over the mugs in December, Wonbin was still part of the group. Which was why you saw Seunghyun eating without his own mug by his side. Awwww,….

But no worries, Hyunnie….
Jadelzy noona is going to send you your own mug ^____^

Isn’t it a happy event when your hard work really pays off?

Why not YOU try it too?
Show FT Island that overseas fans, do exist, and do care for them ^___^
Probably next time, we will see Hongki eating from a plate you made for them…. =P
After all, we all know the boys love all the fans’ gifts ^___^

That said, congratulations to Jadelzy once again =]

Lee Jaejin - Musical Challenge


Playing the role of a young boy in his first love in “Sonagi”.

A dark face with a bashful way of talking and a bright smile.
Lee Jaejin (18), whom I met in the practice room of the musical, “Sonagi”, in no time was changed into a pure country boy of the story.

“I’m actually a native of the countryside. Until the end of elementary school, I lived in ChungJoo, where the paddy fields were spread out everywhere.”

“When I was in 1st grade, there was this little girl I liked. So in order to look good in front of her, I would follow her around everywhere and even send letters to her and then run away. As I remember those memories, I am practicing for this musical.”

Lee Jaejin, who is the bassist of FT Island, was also casted in the sitcom, “Unstoppable Marriage” last time but it is his first time being in a musical.

After being suggested to audition for the musical, he thought “First off I’m not even that good at music, so would it be okay to challenge myself with something else?” and was hesitant.
But then after thinking “When I get chances like this, I should just go for it,” he said that he eventually had the desire to do it.

“And even after I made that final decision to audition and heard that I made it in, my future was desolate. Although my title is a band member, since I play the bass, I never had the experience of singing or dancing before.”

He is “however carefully and step by step learning and gaining courage and self-confidence now” and said that the greatest earnings from doing the musical is how his expectations for himself while seeing himself change has grown.

“Through this musical, I am really changing as I am learning many new things. Usually my posture, which wouldn’t be upright, has been fixed and my acting and singing skill, compared to before, have definitely improved.”

“(Jokingly) Now people are saying shouldn’t they replace me as the vocal of FT Island (laugh).”

Musical “Sonagi” is a dramatized version of Hwang Soon Won’s story, which is even in schoolbooks, too.

Last year when the play was first performed, Big Bang’s Seungri played the role of the young boy, which lead this musical to become big.

He, who has taken over the spot that Seungri had before, when asked if “won’t it be a burden since you might be compared?” replied, “I will try to make the audience feel Lee Jaejin’s own color and energy.”

“Honestly when I first learned about “Sonagi” in school I didn’t get that sad feeling in my heart. But after reading it again, I thought to myself and wondered why I couldn’t feel it then.”

“While it’s a short story, the pureness of first love makes it a piece of work that really touches your heart. In the performance, you will be able to feel that same charm of the original work.”
